A social problem which concerns me most is online regulation in South Korea. Online game regulation is a recent project from government for purpose to prevent game addiction. This issue caused controversy for two reasons. First, the article of online game regulation contained law that has nothing to do with preventing game addiction. They forced game industry to pay 6% of their income. Second, government is trying to put game as a 4th addiction matter which includes drug, gambling, and alcohol. Furthermore, they are blaming game for the cause of all juvenile delinquency. All of government’s opinion about game is wrong. They does not see the real problem. Therefore, many people thinks they are using social panic. To stop this, we must claim our opinoin loudly, not just sitting behind the computer and get mad about it.
I would like to be doing traveling, publishing, and dating in the next five years. I want to travel around the world, publish some books, and make a girlfriend. First, I want to travel the world especially in Europe and Egypt alone or accompanying few friends. It will be a shame to borrow all the money from parents for my travelling expenses, so I will have to work part-time job. Of course, I will have some assists from my parents, but I want to earn at least half of the travelling expenses. Furthermore, for communication I will have to learn foreign languages. I will study German, French, and Italian. Next, I want to publish a book. I will be living in some officetel alone without any disturb, and I want to write a book with an isolated condition. All background information for the book will be earned by books and my early experience, so I want to write a book like a hikikomori. I do not matter how long it takes. Finally, I want to make a girlfriend and make a happy memory. Therefore, I will make my body, buy some nice clothes, and get some hair cut. I will work out at a gym everyday, and learn some trend to look nice. It will make me normal to special. Although I am short in length, I want to meet a nice women who can only look at me, and who considers marrying me. It will be a dream life to me if all these comes true in the next five years.
I rarely watch TV because of my childhood experience. I watch TV only on the weekend for a couple of hours. To begin with, when I was young, I did not have control of the TV remote controller. Therefore, the only shows I watched were what my mother and father watched, and that was usually golf programs or dramas for women. Those programs were not my taste, so I eventually grew apart from watching TV. Furthermore, I had institution classes to attend at the time some programs were on TV which might have fit my taste. However, although I watched TV very seldom, I had some favorite TV shows which were “Friends” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” “Friends” is an American sitcom and it is a very old program which was on 10 years ago. Recently, I am fond of “Big Bang Theory”, which is also an American sitcom, but still “friends” is the best. “Hell’s Kitchen” is a cooking survival program. I love this program because I love cooking and Gordon Ramsay is so charismatic. Both programs were sometime humorous, sometime touching, and sometime breathtaking.
Superstition is an irrational belief without any scientific reason. For example, in Korea, many people consider the number ‘4’ as an unlucky number because it has same pronunciation with word ‘Death’ in Chinese. I am not a superstitious person, but I know a lot of superstitions from around the world. That is because I am deeply interested in superstition and its origins or unexpected scientific explanations. For example, in Korea, people believed that when a person has a problem with their stomach, rubbing the stomach with your hand will cure it. However, in scientific research, it was learned true that rubbing stomach with hand helps a person to digest well. I like to find out these fascinating facts about superstitions, and some superstitions are very fun and amazing to read about. In contrast, licking wounds will heal it was learned false that it might cause disease. Superstition will never disappear because people are afraid of unexpected events and want to explain it somehow. Although old superstition may disappears because of logical explanations, new superstition will arise alongside development in society.
My dream vacation is visiting Korea Antarctic Research Program Sejong Station in the Antarctica. The Antarctica is a restricted area for normal people. Therefore, I will need some qualification to go there. If I go to Sejong Station, I will be there as a researcher of a chef. If I apply as a researcher, I will need a bachelor’s degree related to the Antarctica. On the other hand, if I apply as a chef, I will need a license and a work as a chef career more than 7 years. I will arrive at Sejong Station by icebreaker departed from Chile. The cost is not a problem because it is for work, so I won’t spend any of my money. Rather, I will get paid reasonably. Although it is a job, it will be a working holiday for me because visiting Antarctica is one of my dreams. I want to work in Sejong Station for about a year so that I can see every season in Antarctica. It will be a great pleasure, and that is why my dream vacation is to visit Antarctica.
My friend Lee Jong-hwan makes me happy all the time. He is my best friend since high school where we met first time. He is taking military service right now, but we contact each other very often. We usually play game ‘League of Legend’ or eat something when we hang out together outside. I invite him at my house very often. At my house, we does a lot of activities, such as playing video games, cooking, and watching television. There is only one computer in my house, and Jong-hwan takes it all the time. That is because just looking at him playing computer and talking together sitting right next to him makes me very happy. He is very talkative person and humorous. While talking to him, I feel relived and forget all the worries I had. That is why just sitting by him makes me happy. I feel very happy and delight when my friend Lee Jong-hwan is around me. I would have might ask him out if he was her.
