Welcome to Expacked (Issue #73)

May 27, 2010

If the rising tensions between the North and the South was not bad enough for teachers, the massive drop in the value of the won certainly is.  If you were planning on sending money back home, it may be a better idea to sit on it for awhile.  Once the situation settles down the money markets should be returning to normal…Lantern Festival 2010

So whether you like politics or not, this current situation is affecting all native English teachers in Korea. While direct military confrontation may be unlikely, the key in defusing the situation seems to be China.  Hopefully, with the growing international pressure on China to put pressure on North Korea, that China decides to act quickly – and there are some good signs that they will.

If you were wondering what’s up with today’s Expacked picture – I decided to brighten the mood and include a picture from last week’s excellent Lantern Festival.
