Dear Readers of The Corea Courier. I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to the staff of The Corea Courier on their notable efforts to contribute to the advancement of English language media in Korea. I believe that their dedication to spreading opportunities for a broad public to have free access to good quality journalistic resources in English will be widely appreciated by both Koreans and international residents of our increasingly diverse Dr. Paul Tonks, Yonsei University country. 대한민국 영어 미디어 발전을 위해 노력하는 코리아 쿠리어 일동의 공헌을 진심으로 축하합니다. 대중에게 양질의 저널리스트적 자원을 무료로 접할 수 있는 기회를 제공하는 그들의 노력은 끊임없이 다양화하는 우리 나라의 한국인 뿐만 아니라 외국인 거주자들로부터 많은 관심을 받으리라 예상됩니다. It is a great privilege for me as an academic to have the opportunity to teach here in Korea because I am able to mentor and indeed learn from such dedicated and talented students. Education, of course, has been fundamental to Korea’s remarkable historical development. It is the deep commitment of the Korean people to education that has enabled Korea’s modern transformation into one of the world’s most impressive economic, political and cultural success stories. 이들처럼 헌신적이고 재능 있는 학생들을 가르칠 기회가 주어진 것은 대한민국의 한 학자로서 크나큰 특권이라 생각합니다. 그 동안 교육은 대한민국의 놀라운 역사적 발전에 핵심적인 역할을 담당해 왔습니다. 한국인들의 교육에 대한 열정은 경제, 정치, 그리고 문화적 면에서 대한민국을 세계적으로 가장 빛나는 성공신화 중 하나로 발돋움할 수 있게 해주었습니다. Whilst Korea has made immense progress in all spheres, including the increasingly global mindset and English communication skills possessed by its citizens, many still have concerns about English education access and opportunities for learning. It is my hope that the initiative of launching The Corea Courier, with its strong ethos of social responsibility and engagement, will make a positive impact through its valuable English language articles. 대한민국이 다방면에서 월등한 진척을 이룬 반면, 아직도 많은 이들은 영어 교육에 대한 접근성과 교육의 기회 불평등에 대한 우려를 표하고 있습니다. 이에 저는 사회적 책임과 약속에 대한 정신이 강한 코리아 쿠리어의 발간이 소중한 영어기사로 한국사회에 긍정적 영향을 주리라 기대합니다. Yours, Paul Tonks, PhD Associate Professor of History Yonsei University Underwood International College

Congratulations on the launching of The Corea Courier! It is a rare occasion to come across talented 코리아 쿠리어의 창간을 축하드립니다. Lee Hee-chan, PhD young minds with such willpower and dedication. Professor of Tourism Management I find it difficult not to send my deepest regards Sejong University and hope for The Corea Courier’s success. College of Hospitality Tourism Boys, be ambitious!


Greeting from Royal Thai Embassy

For Thailand to be part of The Corea Courier’s premier issue, it is really quite an honour. The idea was conceived on 5 December 2012 when the Royal Thai Embassy hosted a reception to celebrate His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 85th Birthday Anniversary. For Thais, 5 December is always one of our most auspicious days, and therefore a really good omen for any undertaking. So, I am very confident that The Corea Courier will excel in its endeavour and aspiration aimed at “bridging the gap”. There is no better way to overcome various divides than through correct and better understanding. For this, it is indeed a great pleasure for me to extend my warmest and heartfelt congratulations to The Corea Courier. Kittiphong na Ranong Ambassador of Thailand

태국이 코리아 쿠리어 초판의 일부분이 될 수 있었다는 것을 큰 영광으로 생각합니다. 코리아 쿠리어가 “격차 해소” 의 임무를 훌륭히 해내리라 확신합니다. 이에 저는 기쁜 마음으로 제 진심이 담긴 축하의 말씀을 코리아 쿠리어에 전하는 바입니다.

How credible are your sources? The truth behind securities firm chirashi (증권가 찌라시) By Lee Seung-kon

People gossip all the time. But how do they know what they know? Chirashi (찌라시) is Japanese for ‘flyers’ or ‘leaflets.’ It is a unilateral form of communication. Since its source is hard to identify, the reliability of its contents is highly questionable. But in almost any case, celebrities are found trying to explain that the rumors are false. If such rumors were caused by unintelligible sources

to begin with, then why bother to put in such effort? The cause is found in the term “securities firm.” The moment the word “securities firm” is attached to “chirashi,” the story becomes a little different. Whether the rumors are true or false, they become directly linked to cash flow and profitability. Securities firms are very sensitive to any form of information. Hence, an ‘ambiguous trust’ is applied to the words ‘securities firm’ and

‘chirashi.’ The problem is that oftentimes, the information provided by securities firm chirashi is groundless. Accuracy is simply an option that can enhance the value of chirashi. Not by any means is it a necessary requirement. Hence, information is often manipulated for the interest of those concerned. Nonetheless, the contents of securities firm chirashi quickly spread to the general public. Since its content has to be provocative

in order to grab public attention, it does much harm to celebrities, to who name value and image mean everything. Following the suicide of Choi Jin-sil (1968~2008), the authorities have launched mass investigation on the creation and distribution of securities firm chirashi. However, it exists to this day due to the anonymous nature of its production.

Hazard ‘attacks’ ball boy, receives 3 match ban


볼보이 '폭행' 아자르, 3경기 출전 정지 징계

By Moon Sung-kee

January 26 (Korean time)—The English FA has given Chelsea winger Eden Hazard (22) a 3 match ban for kicking a ball boy in the stomach. The FA stated that Hazard’s action “constituted violent conduct whereby the standard punishment that would otherwise apply

was clearly insufficient.” Hazard can respond to the FA’s charge until the 29th. Chelsea was playing their second leg of the Capital One Cup semifinal against Swansea at Liberty Stadium. Chelsea needed two goals to have a chance to progress. The ball had gone out for a goal

kick. Hazard quickly tried to retrieve the ball, but the ball boy fell over it. In the process of retrieving the ball, Hazard appeared to have kicked the ball boy, Charlie Morgan (17), in the stomach. The ball boy seemed to be wasting time, and possibly exaggerated his injury in order to get

Hazard sent off. Hazard was red carded and Chelsea failed to make a comeback. Hazard and Morgan apologized to each other after the match, but punishment from the FA seems unavoidable.

It is a combination of things that make Thailand tick. 수 백만 명의 관광객들이 “미소의 나라” 태국을 꾸준히 방문하는 데는 이유가 있다. 2012년 한 해 동안 태국은 21,000,000 명의 방문객을 유치하였다.

Value of Money: Overall, it will not cost a fortune.

Everything is reasonably affordable. 태국의 물가는 저렴한 편이다.

People: Thailand is called the Land of

Smiles as a result of the unique character of Thais being gentle, happy, friendly, and desirous to please and accommodate with foreigners. Visitors can easily feel at home in Thailand where there has been a great deal of assimilation between different races, cultures and religions.

Land of Smiles

태국이 “미소의 나라”라 불리는 것은 특히 외국인에게 온화하고 친절한 태국인들의 성품 덕분이다.

Unique History: There are

still debates as to exactly when Thailand came into existence. But by 10th Century AD, Thais were reported to have been found in mainland Southeast Asia. Thailand is situated at the cross road between China and India and has always welcomed any contacts with foreigners, especially the European colonial powers which arrived in 1511. Thailand was never under colonial rule. Adaptability played a vital role. Thailand’s long rich history offers many attractions to visitors, e.g. art, culture, tradition, food, architecture, archeology. 태국의 깊고 풍부한 역사는 관광객들에게 많은 볼거리와 먹거리를 제공한다.

Weather in general is gorgeous even during the rainy season, when there is still plenty of sunshine. With around a 3,000 km long coastline, Thailand offers countless white sandy beaches with turquoise blue sea. Many of them rank among the world’s best. They can be full of activities or quiet. Pattaya, Phuket, Krabi, Samui, Hua Hin are some of the most popular resorts. Many islands in Andaman Sea in southern Thailand are the best spots for scuba diving. 태국은 환상적인 날씨를 자랑하는데, 심지어 우기에도 충분한 햇빛이 비춰질 정도이다.

Shopping: Bangkok in particular is well known as a heaven

for shoppers. Prices are competitive. There is a variety of goods ranging from handicraft, clothes, to gems and jewelry. 방콕은 특히 쇼핑 애호가들의 천국으로 유명하다.

Traditional massage: Thai

Massage, a branch of Thai traditional medicine, involves rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body to relax tensed muscles and revitalize your body. Wat Pho (Pho Temple) in Bangkok is well known for being Thailand’s first school of traditional medicine. Even US President Barrack Obama paid a visit to Wat Pho despite his tight schedule in Thailand of less than 24 hours. 24시간의 짧은 스케줄로 태국을 방문했던 오바마 미국 대통령도 태국마사지를 받고 미국으로 돌아갔다고 한다.

Golfing: Endless gorgeous golf courses at very reasonable fees all over the country.

아름다운 골프 코스들을 전국 곳곳에서 합리적인 가격으로 즐길 수 있다.

Unique location: Thailand is a convenient base for travelers

to use to explore Thailand’s neighbouring countries e.g. Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam. Now, tourists can also apply for a visa to enter Cambodia at any Thai Embassy or Consulate. 태국은 이웃국가들을 방문하기 용이한 위치에 있다.

Visa: No visa is required for Korean tourists on visits of 90 days or less. Many other nationals also enjoy similar visa exemption, or at least a 15 day visa free visit. 90일 이하로 태국을 방문하는 한국인들은 비자 없이 방문 가능하다.

Tim Burton exhibition - Seoul Museum of Art

By Moon Sung-kee

You are at the Tim Burton exhibition. Disproportionate bodies. Stripes. Large round eyes. Sharp teeth (or stitches). First Impression? Awesome. If you like cute and quirky, you will enjoy this exhibition. If you like dark and violent, you will also enjoy this exhibition.

on a Tuesday afternoon and found it extremely difficult to move around freely or stay put in one place. Mobs will drag you down to their pace. I do not recommend following a guide. If you choose to do so, know that you are willingly placing yourself in the middle of a swarm. Take a rest and enjoy the artwork, even if you may not fully understand everything. It is a much better alternative than trying to look past twenty heads for half a glance at a display. The exhibition contains both early and recent works. If you have watched Edward

There are watercolor paintings, scribbles, picture books, notes, costumes, clay figurines, as well as mini theaters. If you like weird—a cute and violent weird—this is your exhibition.

are macabre, hyperbolic, and full of black comedy. All the while, much of the violence seems innocent and indicative of childlike imagination. Take a look at Vincent, voiced by Vincent Price. You will be able to experience some of Burton’s poetry, displayed in simple sketches and rhythmic artistry. In case you didn’t know, Burton worked at Disney. After Vincent and Frankenweenie, he left the company, supposedly because his works were too dark and scary. You can also learn about Burton’s upbringing in Burbank, California. The exhibition includes several of his works as a child.

A word of warning: you might want to reconsider bringing your DSLR camera. You can’t take pictures of the actual exhibition. If you bring it anyway, you can still take pictures of posters, character artwork, and a giant eyeball creature located at the central hall. Tickets are sold outside the museum for ₩12,000 per person. The exhibition provides docents four times a day Tuesdays through Fridays. The gallery is CLOSED on Mondays. There are no docents on weekends, and their services are in Korean. You can also rent prerecorded headphones (Korean/English) for ₩3,000. You do not need the help of either in order to enjoy the exhibition. Another warning: this exhibition is extremely crowded. I arrived at the exhibition

If you want something more solid, try looking for clay models of Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas. His hollow eyes and stitched smile are far from frightening. Corpse Bride displays are also quite pretty. Scissorhands, you will be pleased to know that his costume is on display. If you want more of the same, look for Batman’s (No, not the one with Christian Bale) or Catwoman’s (Michelle Pfeiffer version). If you prefer simpler works, take a look at sketches of Stainboy. If you are interested, the exhibition has several short animation clips of him. If you are looking for something more creative (bizarre), look everywhere else. Burton’s caricatures and creatures rarely fail to look demented. There are nails in eyes, open fangs, and artistic blood stains all over framed papers. Ironically, most of them look like something out of a storybook. His works

Whether you visit alone, as a couple, or as/with a child, it will be hard not to find the exhibition intriguing. Towards the end of my tour, I strolled by a video screen on the wall. In the animation, a clay creature was being disemboweled by pliers. Disgusting? Violent? A little girl walked by and caught a glimpse of the ending. She was holding her mother’s hand, looking eager and fascinated. The mother wrapped her arms around the child and told her in Korean, “Hey, let’s watch again from the beginning.”

Ways to improve dental health

Nights of Dubai

By Lee Jae-sung

By Lee Seung-kon

What better way to start the New Year than with a healthier smile? Boston Chungplant Dental Clinic is famous for its high quality dental care based on diligence and outstanding service.  Boston Chungplant Dental Clinic is located near Sadang, one of the busiest districts of Seoul. It is rapidly gaining a reputation amongst dental patients as a popular prosthetic dental clinic specializing in dental implant surgeries. According to the head doctor Dr. Hong Ki-chung from Boston Chungplant Dental Clinic, “a good smile is a reflection of healthy oral condition.”  In addition, people with healthy teeth and gums are usually more capable of maintaining overall wellbeing by consuming a variety of healthy foods.   Dr. Hong’s suggestions to maintain good oral health include:

·Prevention – Meet dental hygienist at least once every six months. Take a regular dental exam at least once a year. ·Healthy eating – Try to eat low carb foods, and try to avoid simple sugars. Anti-inflammatory food can help fight dental plaque (such as broccoli). ·Daily practice – Brush teeth at least twice a day for two minutes at a time. Use mouthwash. Floss at least once a day.


interpretation of traditional Arab food. By creating such unique “fusion” menus, he has been able to make Arab cuisine fit to satisfy the appetites of picky Korean customers. Once seated, things only get better.

In the harsh cold weather of the Korean peninsula, it seems only natural for us to dream of a quick getaway to a place much warmer, preferably a tropical desert. For those of you seeking adventures under the warmth of the Dubai sun, save the plane ticket and instead take a step into Layaly Dubai, located only a couple of minutes’ walk away from exit 2 of Noksapyeong subway station.

Unconventional reading skills taught at DangDang By Lee Jae-sung Daechi is the current Mecca of English education in Korea. The multitude of Hakwon institutions, standalone and franchise, cater to various demands regarding English learning. While some focus on the mastery of standardized tests such as College Scholastic Aptitude Te s t ( C S AT ) , TO E F L a n d T E P S , DangDang English Institute (당당영 어학원), accentuates practical reading comprehension skills for high school students. Ms. Yoon Se won and her partners at DangDang English Institute (당당영어 학원) have worked as English teachers for the past six years in Daechi and Mokdong areas. According to Yoon, there are several ways for students to develop reading comprehension skills. She asserts that English teachers often “place too much weight on the

importance of building background knowledge and vocabulary.” While Yoon agrees that background knowledge and vocabulary are necessary, she believes that improving them is not the only method of expanding one’s English aptitude. DangDang does not limit itself to teaching its students by only using standardized material. It emphasizes the use of English comprehension skills in practice as much as its use in standardized tests. Each standardized test does not necessarily test one’s ability in English, but rather one’s familiarity with the type of English presented in the test. According to Yoon, in TOEFL, it is important to objectify the context of the texts and identify the core contents through reading comprehension skills because the texts are academically oriented. For TEPS, readers must be able to grasp the topic, the main idea and especially the logical relationships

between the sentences. Students can engage in the same strategies with CSAT. When reading novels, on the other hand, there tends to be a greater advantage in understanding the plot based on sequential logic. Yoon allocates much of her time in researching how to deliver reading comprehension techniques to students effectively. “I believe that passionate research is like a mother to good lecturing.” – Yoon Yoon maintains a constant discipline for her research in hopes of enhancing the level of English amongst her students.

Meet Eid “Marko” Almasri. “Is he our tour guide?” you ask. To some extent, yes. Although technically speaking, not really. He is the owner of the restaurant. But he’ll be kind enough to “walk you through” Arab cuisine 101; he will explain how the dishes are prepared, and help you choose which ones you should try first if you’re new to Arabic food. He even speaks Korean. Try beating that. His favorite hobby is the seemingly peaceful act of smoking Hooka. But be aware, for this talkative restaurant owner takes much pleasure in entertaining his customers with stories of his life and culture. “I’ve heard of Dubai, but what’s ‘Layaly’?” you may ask. That’s Arabic for “nights.” That’s right. Dubai nights (better known to us as Arabian nights). The founding philosophy of this restaurant is to familiarize Koreans with Arab food. In order to accomplish this goal, Marko has a unique European

The emotional pleasure of looking down on the picturesque view of Noksapyeong, accompanied by the exotic interior design which walks you through the history of Arab culture, will only be magnified by the sensual feeling of your glands savoring the renowned “Leg of Lamb” dish. Contrary to conventional lamb dishes, this lamb is prepared by Marko’s secret recipe, which removes the bad odor that lamb normally has, hence making it much more enjoyable to customers. Whether you dip your bread in Mutabal or Hummus, you really can’t go wrong. Other dishes Marko takes great pride in include the Laheum Azine, Musaqua, Sayadieh Dazine, and Duck Dazine. Wine and beer is served as well for customers, so don’t be afraid of walking into a restaurant free of alcohol, as you would expect of a restaurant from Muslim culture.

Screen English 영화 속 명대사 Forrest Gump (1994) 포레스트 검프

Across the Universe – The Beatles

Forrest Gump (1994) is a highly accalaimed epic romance-drama film that depicts the life of Forrest Gump. The film has won numerous awards for best picture and well-received by critics at the time of its debut. The above scene shows Forrest proposing his feelings toward childhood crush Jenny.

Words are flowing out Like endless rain into a paper cup They slither while they pass They slip away across the universe Pools of sorrow, waves of joy, Are drifting through my opened mind Possessing and caressing me

단어/말들이 흘러나온다 종이컵에 끝없이 들어오는 비처럼 [말은] 스르르 지나가고 우주 속으로 미끄러진다 슬픔의 웅덩이/수영장(과) 기쁨의 파도(는) 나의 열린 정신 속에 떠다닌다 (나를) 사로잡고 어루만진다.

Jai guru deva om ( )* Nothing’s gonna change my world x 4

신비로운 구루에게 영광 아무것도 나의 세상을 바뀌지 않을 것이다

Jenny: “You can’t keep doing this. You can’t keep trying to rescue me!” 제니: “제발 이러지 좀 마. 자꾸 날 구하려 하지 말라구!”

Images of broken light Which dance before me like a million eyes They call me on and on across the universe Thoughts meander Like a restless wind inside a letter box They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe

깨져버린 빛의 이미지들은

Forrest: “I can’t help it. I love you” 포레스트: “어쩔 수 없어. 나는 너를 사랑해”

내 앞에서 백만 개의 눈처럼 춤춘다 그들은 계속 우주 속에서 나를 부른다 생각들이 거닐고 있다 편지 상자 안에 있는 쉴 틈 없는 바람처럼 (생각들은) 맹목적으로 우주 속에서 굴러 다닌다.

Jai guru deva om ( )* Nothing’s gonna change my world x 4


Sounds of laughter, shades of life Are ringing through my opened ears Inciting and inviting me Limitless undying love Which shines around me like a million suns, It calls me on and on across the universe

웃음 소리들, 생의 색깔들(은) 나의 열린 귀를 통해 울린다 나를 자극하고 초대한다 끝없고 영원한 살랑은 나를 돌며 백만개의 별처럼 빛난다. 계속 우주 속에서 나를 부른다

Jai guru deva om ( )* Nothing’s gonna change my world x 4 Jai guru deva ( )* [repeat]

신비로운 구루에게 영광 아무것도 나의 세상을 바뀌지 않을 것이다 신비로운 구루에게 영광 [반복]

*참고해주세요! Jai guru deva om 영어가 아니라 Sanskrit이라 하는 언어입니다. Nothing’s는 nothing is 의 줄인 말 입니다. Gonna는 going to의 줄인 말 입니다.

Korean and English PROVERB Which of the two sentences below is the correction translation of “사공이 많으면 배가 산으로 간다?”

“Too many boatmen send the ship to the mountain” ( ) “Too many cooks spoil the broth” ( )

정답 “Too many boatmen send the ship to the mountain” (X) “Too many cooks spoil the broth” (O) 해설 In Korea, there is an expression, “사공이 많으면 배가 산으로 간다,” which, in direct translation, is equal to “Too many boatmen send the ship to the mountain.” It means too many people trying to lead a group into different directions will eventually bring a less desired outcome. The correct English expression is “Too many cooks spoil the broth.”

포레스트 검프 (Forrest Gump)라는 영화는 미국 영화 중에 최고의 명 작 중 하나로 꼽히는 영화이다. 포레스트(Forrest)는 선천적으로 두뇌 발달이 일반 사람들보다 더디 다. 포레스트는 자신의 첫사랑인 제니(Jenny)를 항상 따라다니며 위험에 처해 있을 때 주저하지 않고 제니를 도와준다. 밑에 장면은 그가 제니 에게 사랑을 고백하는 장면이다.

Jenny: “Forrest, [sighs], you don’t know what love is” 제니: “포레스트, [한숨], 넌 사랑이 뭔지 몰라”
