Classified Ad Type: Location: Neighborhood: ONLINEContact person by email

My friend Scarlett is one of the coolest recruiters I have ever known. I have been living and working in Korea a long time. She is super reliable and has always worked to get me the best terms on fun projects as a freelance teacher. 

Right now she is looking for an F6 candidate(s), that can teach online in the morning; Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7 am to 8 am. The classes are all on zoom or webex, which her company will provide and the pay is 30,000 per hour. 

I work for her right now teaching a really cool executive that has an amazing job in a technology related field so I am learning as much as I am teaching. Another student she gave me works for a social media giant and it blows my mind talk with that learner. 

What I am trying to say is she gets good job opportunities with people working in big companies working on enormous projects that actually touch our every day lives. 

To work with her you need to be F6 and have your degree and all that other stuff. The process is simple and she is so reliable. Just send her your resume if you are interested in that morning class or want her to find other work for you. 

Mention that Benjamin referred you to her. Hi, that's me. I am Benjamin. She will do what she can for you. 

I hope this is helpful. If you have any questions feel free to email me.

[email protected]. I am a teacher and in my spare time I work with my friend as a recruiter; most positions are with kids but there are opportunities to work with adults as well in every city.

If you want to make a change, change scenery, salary, environment, sphere of influence, escape a stalker or angry ex, or for whatever reason, find a new job send me your resume and tell me what you are looking for, where you want to be and what you want to be earning and I will try my best to help you out. 

In closing; please email Scarlett. She is so cool and I want her to have an awesome New Years Friday. If you or someone you know is looking for some work on the side hit her up. 

Again, right now, she needs at least two online teachers for mornings, tuesday/thursday 7:30 to 8:30 and someone for tuesday/wednesday/thursday from 7 am to 8 am. The class durations are ongoing, I think. 

One of my learners is for the year the other is 12 session hours; they come in all different packages and sizes and opportunities are dependent upon teacher abilities, which she matches well. 

Her email address is [email protected] and her company is ECK Education. 

Hope this is helpful. Happy New Year.

Gunwi Grotto (2nd Seokguram) – 군위 석굴 (제2 석굴암) (Gunwi, Gyeongsangbuk-do)

Wed, 2021-12-29 23:29
The Gunwi Grotto in Gunwi, Gyeongsangbuk-do. Grotto History

The Gunwi Grotto in Gunwi, Gyeongsangbuk-do goes by a few names that include the 2nd Seokguram Hermitage and the Samjonseokgul Cave. The Gunwi Grotto is located on the northern side of Mt. Palgongsan (1,192.3 m). The Buddhist temple founded on this site was believed to be first established during the early part of Unified Silla (676-935 A.D.). The stone cave is located twenty metres above ground, and the height of the cave is 4.25 metres tall. Additionally, the cave is 4.3 metres deep, and the floor of the cave is flat.

What makes the Gunwi Grotto so important is that it precedes the founding of the renowned Seokguram Grotto by a half a century. While not as sophisticated, it gives a glimpse into the evolution of cave shrines on the Korean peninsula. Housed inside the Gunwi Grotto are a triad of statues that date back to about 700 A.D. The triad consists of a central image of Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise) which stands 2.88 metres in height. Amita-bul sits in a cross-legged position on top of a pedestal. Uniquely, Amita-bul displays a stern look unlike other Buddha statues from the same time period. Typically, Buddhas from this time period display a friendly smile. The mudra (ritualized hand gesture), or “suin” in Korean, that Amita-bul is showing with his right hand on his right knee and with his fingers turned downwards, shows that he is attempting to expel evil.

Joining the central image of Amita-bul inside the Gunwi Grotto are two Bodhisattvas. These Bodhisattvas are Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) and Daesaeji-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power and Wisdom for Amita-bul). Unlike Amita-bul, Gwanseeum-bosal and Daesaeji-bosal are standing. Each are wearing a crown with miniature a Buddha at the front. Also, they each hold a kundika, or ewer, with a ritual water sprinkler inside. They are also adorned with beaded necklaces, armlets, and long robes. Rather interestingly, the comparatively slender body that’s proportionately sculpted is influenced by the style of the Tang Dynasty (618–690, 705–907 A.D.) at this time.

This temple is additionally important because it provides an example of the transition found between early Korean Buddhist sculptures from the Three Kingdoms of Korea (57 B.C. – 668 A.D.) to that of the Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.). Also, the grotto is one of the first natural caves that was converted into a temple shrine. For all these reasons, the Gunwi Grotto is National Treasure #109, and it’s officially known as the Grotto of Amitabha Buddha Triad of Gunwi in English.

Grotto Layout

You first approach the temple grounds from the south. Besides the grotto, there is also a temple that lies out in front of it. This temple is known as the 2nd Seokguram Hermitage. Immediately, you’ll be welcomed to the grounds by a large visitors’ centre and study hall. When I visited, both seemed to be unused and unoccupied. After crossing a bridge with a small stream that flows underneath it, you’ll now be located just to the right of all the shrine halls at the temple.

The first of these temple structures is the Jong-ru Pavilion (Bell Pavilion). Housed inside the top-heavy Jong-ru Pavilion is a large Brahma Bell with the image of the grotto triad as a relief. Next to the Jong-ru Pavilion is a biseok dedicated to the life of a deceased monk from the temple. Further behind these structures are the long monks’ quarters that are off-limits to the general public. A little further along, and past the second biseok, is a stone statue dedicated to Birojana-bul (The Buddha of Cosmic Energy). This statue of Birojana-bul dates back to the 9th century.

Just past the bamboo grove and the 9th century statue of Birojana-bul is the Biro-jeon Hall, which is also known as the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall. Out in front of the Biro-jeon Hall, on each of the front corners, are child-like statues dedicated to Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom) and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). Surrounding the exterior walls of the Biro-jeon Hall are a masterful collection of Shimu-do (Ox-Herding Murals). Stepping inside the Biro-jeon Hall, you’ll notice a large triad seated on the main altar. In the centre of the three is Birojana-bul. On the far left wall is a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). And the rest of the interior of the Biro-jeon Hall is filled with paintings dedicated to various Bodhisattvas like Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion), Munsu-bosal, and Bohyeon-bosal. Of note, and out in front of the Biro-jeon Hall, you’ll have passed by a rather odd-looking pagoda. This pagoda is called “Mojeon Seoktap” in Korean. This one-story pagoda made from white bricks dates back to Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.).

Just over the rooftop of the Biro-jeon Hall, you’ll notice a hole in the sheer mountain face. This opening is the Grotto of Amitabha Buddha Triad of Gunwi, which was mentioned above. Unfortunately, you can’t climb the stairs leading up to the grotto. However, you can still get a good look up at the triad resting inside the cave even at a distance.

To the left of the Grotto of Amitabha Buddha Triad of Gunwi, and up a forested pathway, is the temple’s Samseong-gak Hall. Inside this shaman shrine hall are three rather ordinary paintings dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars), Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit), and Dokseong (The Lonely Saint).

How To Get There

To get to the Gunwi Grotto, you’ll first need to get to the Gunwi Bus Terminal. You’ll then need to board a bus bound for Mt. Palgongsan. Just make sure with the bus driver that the bus goes by the grotto. Buses from the terminal start at 8:25 a.m. and end at 7:10 p.m.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10

The temple is a bit of a tough one to rate. It doesn’t have all that many temple shrine halls, but what it does have are pretty special. The obvious highlight to the temple is the historic Gunwi Grotto that also just so happens to be a National Treasure; however, you can only see it at some distance. Either way, if you do get the opportunity to visit Gunwi Grotto, you should. Alongside the grotto, you can see the beautiful interior of the Biro-jeon Hall, the surprisingly old stone artifacts strewn about the temple grounds like the statue of Birojana-bul and the one-story white brick pagoda. If you go, you won’t be disappointed.

The visitors’ centre and study hall at the entry of the temple grounds. The Jong-ru Pavilion. One of the biseok (stele), as you make your way towards the grotto. The Biro-jeon Hall. The one-story white brick pagoda out in front of the Biro-jeon Hall. One of the beautiful Shimu-do (Ox-Herding Murals) that adorns the exterior walls of the Biro-jeon Hall. A look inside the Biro-jeon Hall at the main altar. A look towards the elevated Gunwi Grotto. A closer look inside the Gunwi Grotto. The Samseong-gak Hall at the temple.

Last Sunday I did a live Korean class all about the ~데 form. For example, 하다 would become 하는데 (as an action verb), or 먹다 would become 먹는데, and descriptive verbs like 작다 and 크다 would become 작은데 and 큰데.

We learned how this form is conjugated, what it means, what it feels like, and how and when to use it.

Yul-jong – Vinaya Sect: 율종

Mon, 2021-12-27 23:31
Jajang-yulsa (590-658 A.D.) from Jajangam Hermitage in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do.

The word Vinaya is derived from a Sanskrit word which means to lead, take away, tame, train, or guide. It can also mean to educate or teach. The Vinaya is a division of the Buddhist Tripitaka (canon) that contains the rules and procedures that govern the Buddhist monastic community, which is known as the Sangha.

In total, there are three Vinaya traditions that remain in use in modern monastic communities throughout the world. These communities are: 1. The Theravada (Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia), 2. The Mulasarvastivada (Tibetan Buddhism and the Himalayan region), 3. The Dharmaguptaka (East Asian Buddhism). In addition to these communities, there are Vinaya texts from several schools of Indian Buddhism that are no longer in existence but are preserved in Tibetan and East Asian texts including the Kāśyapīya, the Mahāsāṃghika, the Mahīśāsaka, and the Sarvāstivāda.

Korea fits into the Dharmaguptaka (East Asian Buddhism) of Vinaya. In Korea, the Vinaya sect is known as “Gyeyul-jong – 계율종” or “Yul-jong – 율종” in Korean. Gyeyul-jong was first founded by the Baekje monk Gyeomik, who went to India in 526 A.D. The reason for Gyeomik’s travels to India is that the Buddhism that was first introduced to the Baekje Kingdom in 384 A.D. was brought by the Indian monk Marananta. At this time, Buddhism was quickly embraced by the Baekje Kingdom (18 B.C. – 660 A.D.), but it remained largely unknown. That’s why Gyeomik was sent to India. He was sent to bring back more information about the teachings of Buddhism. So he traveled to India through the southern seas. In India, he learned Sanskrit. He also studied the Vinaya. This specialized study focused on the implementation of sīla (right conduct), or “yuljang” in Korean. Gyeomik went to India from Baekje to study the Tripiṭaka at Sangana Vinaya Temple in India. There he translated the text into a book called “yulmun” in Korean. Gyeomik was accompanied by another Indian monk upon his return to the Baekje Kingdom. And upon his return to the Baekje Kingdom, Gyeomik transmitted the Vinaya. However, there is no evidence that he founded a sect upon his return. And when the Baekje Kingdom fell, both the Baekje Gyeyul teachings and translated texts were lost.

Later, and in the Silla Kingdom (57 B.C. – 935 A.D.), the monk Jajang-yulsa (590-658 A.D.) would propagate anew the rules of the dharma. Jajang-yulsa was the son of a sopan (third rank) named Kim Murim. He was a true-born (jingol) noble. Kim Murim made a vow, stating, “If a son is born to me, he will embrace the sangha and will become a ferry for crossing the sea of the dharma.” As a result, Kim Murim also made an image of a thousand armed Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). And Jajang-yulsa would later be born on the same day as the Buddha’s birthday, and the name that was given to him was Seonjongnang.

At an early age, Jajang-yulsa lost both of his parents. As a result, Jajang-yulsa was known to despise the impermanence of the human condition, so he left his wife and children and became a monk after donating his gardens and his lands to found Wonnyeongsa Temple. He lived a solitary life on a remote plot of land. During his meditations, Jajang-yulsa was known to surround himself with thorn bushes, so that if he moved or fell asleep, he would be pricked by these thorns. He would sit naked at the centre of these thorn bushes with his hair and head hanging from the beams so as to avoid falling asleep. Another story about Jajang-yulsa’s devotion pertains to the Buddhist monk and the Silla king. When the seat for the prime minister of Silla became available, the king called upon Jajang-yulsa to fill it. However, Jajang-yulsa strongly resisted this request. The king became furious and ordered Jajang-yulsa, “If you do not come, I shall have you killed.” When Jajang-yulsa heard this, he answered, “I would rather die in a day while observing the monastic rules. I do not wish to live a hundred years breaking them.” The king, hearing this, realized that Jajang-yulsa wouldn’t change his mind. As a result, the king agreed to allow Jajang-yulsa to remain a monk.

In 641 A.D., following the orders of Queen Seondeok of Silla (r. 632-647 A.D.), Jajang-yulsa traveled to Tang China (618–690, 705–907 A.D.). He did this with one of his disciples, Seungsil, and ten other people. While in Tang China, Jajang-yulsa received the bone relic of the Buddha’s crown, monastic robe, and sari (crystallized remains). Jajang-yulsa would stay for some time at Mt. Zhongnan until his return to Silla in 643 A.D.

Upon his return to Silla, Jajang-yulsa organized the community of monks and nuns, which had been relatively disorganized up until this point. In addition to organizing these communities, Jajang-yulsa also founded Tongdosa Temple in 646 A.D. to house the sari (crystallized remains) and robe of the Buddha that he had received in Tang China. He also built the Geumgang Gyedan (A Precepts Altar) at Tongdosa Temple, which still stands to this day, to help systematize the organization of the Buddhist monks that is so central to the Vinaya sect. And for the rest of his life, Jajang-yulsa would lecture every two weeks about the Vinaya teachings. He would encourage the monks to observe their precepts and guard against any and all forms of offences.

Lastly, the Vinaya sect enjoyed great prosperity during Silla and Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.). And it’s through the efforts of Jajang-yulsa that the rules and conduct that he promoted are still observed to this day on the Korean peninsula.

Incorrect Korean that you’ll hear at restaurants (Honorifics) | Korean FAQ

Mon, 2021-12-27 16:53

A lot of Korean is incorrect, just as there are many English mistakes used commonly in English speaking countries. But that doesn't always make them necessarily wrong. Some "incorrect" Korean is used commonly in restaurants, in order to make the Korean sound extra polite - even more polite than is necessary. There are some specific grammar forms you'll hear more often in restaurants, and I'll show you what these mean and why they're technically incorrect... but I'll also show you how they can also be right.

A Look Back at 2021

Mon, 2021-12-27 09:42

It is the end of 2021 and I must say that I am sort of glad that it is over, if I am being totally honest. This was the year that followed the death and started with being alone and in quarantine. Suffice to say that it was not a great start to the year.

Photographically speaking it was not much better. Work was non-existent. I did do a gallery for GuruShots in Seoul and that was fun. It was nice to feel that I was doing something somewhat “professional” and related to photography.

I have continued to plug away at my podcast, which is why posts here are somewhat sporadic as I have been focussing more time on building a following with the podcast. So far I think that I have about 25 followers or so. I think that is slightly more than the amount of people that read this blog.

The year ended with the death of our rescue cat and a severe hard drive crash. I managed to bungle up and lose a chuck of my photos thanks to my own procrastination and idiocy. I plugged and backed up my corrupted hard drive and thought that everything was ok. Then It failed again and I realized that enough time had passed that the only backup was the corrupted drive. Basically I lost about a year and a half of raw photos.

So with that being said, let’s get on to my yearly look at some of my favourite photos over the past year.

Near Jeongja Beach in Ulsan, South Korea

This was one of my first photos after being released from quarantine. I was still coming to terms with the loss of my Father and that really zapped my creativity.

The Busan Harbor Bridge

Trying to get my head in a better place I started heading out to new locations. I did a fair bit of searching to find this spot. Thankfully, when I got there, not many people were out braving the cold weather.

Seuldo, Ulsan

I am still plugging away at my lighthouse project, albeit at a slower pace. This is one of the closest to me and one of my favourite areas too.

Ducky, RIP 2021

During 2021, I started another project and instagram page dedicated to my film photography. I managed to get my Dad’s pentax spotmatic F fixed and started to put some rolls through it. Our rescue cat “Ducky” became a popular model as he was alway chilling around me.

Sadly, during the Chuseok Holiday, Ducky’s health took a turn for the worst and he died in my wife’s arms as the Vet basically gave up on him. He had a rough life and we spent pretty much every available bit of money to try and keep him healthy for about a year and a half. We did our best but like most things that I’ve done over the years, it was not enough.

Door in Gyeongju

Throughout the year I took a few trips out to Gyeongju to rekindle my inspiration. At times, it felt like I was simply going through the motions. As depressing as that sounds, I am a firm believer in the idea that you should push yourself to get out. Something will come and at the very least, you are out with your camera and that is something.

Mother and Child in Mugeodong

As spring came, I pushed to get some different shots of the blossoms this year. It’s always a struggle because it is so easy to just set the lens to f/1.4 and blast away at the blossoms. For this shot, I was waiting to see if they would cross and positioned myself accordingly.

Buddha’s Birthday in Gyeongju

This is always my favourite time of the year for night photography. This location was sent to me by a friend in Ulsan. I walked through the shallow river to get this shot and despite the water drops on the lens, I was pretty pleased with how it all came out.

Dong-gu Ulsan

Heading into the summer, I was still trying to figure out what I was doing. I was struggling with a lot both personally and professionally. Realizing that COVID was not going anywhere and neither was my career. Despite getting a master and spending close to two decades taking pictures in Korea, I was treading water at best. This shot came when I drove down to photograph a “cave” on Seuldo only to find that the “cave” was simply a hole in the rocks that people were sticking their iPhones into.

Tea Ceremony in Gangneung

One of the highlights from the fall was being a part of the KTO FAM tour. I got a call from a friend who is the host of This Korean Life and he asked if I wanted to join the tour. It was very last minute and no sooner did I say “yes” was I on the KTX heading to Seoul. It was a great trip and I met some amazing people too. The above shot was from avery beautiful tea ceremony in a pavillion that they only open up for special occasions.

Monk at Tongdosa

Fall came and I was starting to get some help with my grief. Talking to a professional helped me deal with a lot of the issues surrounding my father’s death. It was also during this time that we lost our cat too. Seeing my wife break down in the backroom of the vet’s office crushed me. Any strength I had was gone. It was the photography that kept it all together. It allowed me time to process everything.

Gyeongju in The Fall

Fall is where I am usually the most active. I tried hard to get out more and revisit old places. Heading out to Gyeongju often gave me a lot of great pictures. I found this shot above from scouring instagram. It recently became the “it spot” for a lot of young couples.

Samsandong, Ulsan

The end of 2021, I came to terms with a lot of things. I also started heading out more here and there to find the christmas lights around the city. This was part photo project and part a desperate attempt to find that Christmas spirit that I once had. It is hard this time of year because for so long we call Dad on facetime (my mom can’t hear very well) and he’d be the mc for the Christmas celebrations. December 27th also marks the anniversary of the passing of my best friend Dave Harvey. He was the one directly responsible for getting me to Korea and teaching me photography.

As the year comes to a close, I just want to wish you all a very happy new year. I wish everyone all the best in the coming year. Than you all for helping me and let’s make 2022 a better year for us all.

Hi everyone, just a short note to say that I am available again.

As a result of our office closing recently due to a shortage of students, I am now seeking a new position. Ideally I would like to return to the Changwon/Masan/Busan area, if possible. My current E2 visa expiry date is in April 2022.

I have been living and working in South Korea since 2003 and have worked in a wide range of situations (public and private) since first arriving here. This has included working twice with the military, as well as public elementary schools and private institutions such as YBM Premier and Jung Chul, and I have lived in many different areas around the country. This has also included a number of years as a TESOL teacher trainer (my current position). 

Until recently, I had been teaching adults, although a lot of my experience has also included public schools and hagwons. I would add that I am a science graduate and do not involve myself in literary analysis, preferring to focus more on grammar and speaking skills. Please note that I do not have kindergarten experience.

As part of my duties, I have been responsible for planning whole syllabi and the lessons contained therein, and this experience also includes planning and executing whole summer and winter camps in both the private and public sectors. More recently, due to the Covid situation, I have transitioned from purely classroom-based instruction to also running online classes using Zoom.

You are welcome to contact me through this web site in the first instance if you would like more information about myself (including a resume), or to discuss any opening that you may have.

Eighteen years in Korea - and counting!
