please teach me

Oh, that title could be about so many things here in Korea.  But right now it’s part of the name of a comedy from 2003, Please teach me English, which you can view here (if you download their viewer)

It’s not going to win any awards or anything, but it’s definitely amusing if you want to see how Koreans feel about English, how foreigners are viewed, and how the two interact.  The movie also briefly touches adoption in the most realistic way of all the Korean movies I’ve seen thus far.  It’s got all kinds of glimpses of Korean life which, as a person living here, I will think fondly of for many years to come.  (The same exact song to signal the end of class, for example)  And it’s got its required moments of cheesy romance and the girl getting carried. Something for everyone I guess.  But it was fun.
