Teaching in Korea

When I tell people I taught in Korea for 5 years the most common question I get is:

North or South?

it's funny, my participants in my cultural exchange program tell me they get that question a lot too when they say they're from korea: "north or south?" that and "do you eat dog?"

NO and NO. frustrating. i get that question a lot too when i tell people i was adopted from korea: north or south. a lot of times i just answer by laughing. seriously?

Not sure if you are aware that the British Council has a school in North Korea (although I believe you need to be British to teach there).

Haha. I have to admit that when I first met my boyfriend and he told me he was from Korea I asked him if he was from North or South. He had a good answer, and said that if I ever met someone from North Korea I should let him know because he had never met one.
