1st Korean Immersion Academy Opens in Minnesota

1st Korean Immersion Academy Opens in Minnesota

Students bow in Korean style as class begins at Sejong Academy in Minnesota.

Sejong Academy, the first Korean language and culture immersion school in Minnesota, opened in September amid growing popularity of the Korean culture in the U.S. The school in Saint Paul teaches kindergarten to sixth grade and already admitted its first group of 63 students. Grace Lee, board chair of the academy, said she eagerly wanted to start a school where students can learn the Korean language and culture. Since 2007 she dedicated herself to opening the academy and her efforts have finally paid off. Despite what people might think, Korean Americans do not account for the majority of the students. In fact, refugees from Burma make up 64 percent, followed by Koreans and other Asians (20 percent), African Americans (5 percent) and Caucasians (3 percent).

Similar schools can easily be found in California, which has a large population of Korean Americans. Minnesota respects diversity and has a community of adopted children, including over 10,000 adoptees from Korea. A mother, who adopted a Korean child, said that she selected the academy because she thought it would be better for her child to learn Korean in case the child wants to return to her birth country.Demand for the language is also on the rise as Korea is drawing attention with its economy and popular culture, said Brad Tipka, executive director of the school. He added that speaking Korean and understanding its culture will be a great asset for those who want to lead the world in the future. Tipka taught English at Donga University in Busan in 1996 and Seoul National University of Science and Technology in 2002. Another parent of two children that attend the school, said as Korea is one of the leading players in the world economy, learning the language will help them a lot in the future.

With the opening ceremony held on October 23, the Korean Cultural Center So Paulo has kicked off its operation in earnest.

This has brought the total number of overseas Korean cultural centers established by the Korean government to 26. The first cultural center was set up in Tokyo, Japan, in 1979 and then others have sprung up in major cities around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Beijing and Berlin.

With this new addition, three overseas Korean Cultural Centers will have opened this year alone. The Korean Cultural Center Thailand opened in July on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok and another is set to open in Belgium next month.

In Sao Paulo, the new center's two-story building houses a multipurpose performance hall, a room for practicing taekwondo, an exhibition hall, a caf, a library, a room for Korean-cuisine cooking classes and a training institute will be available next year. The cultural center also offers Korean language courses.

This new cultural center will run a variety of programs aimed at providing Paulistanos with the chance to explore, in person, many aspects of Korean culture from its history, language and food through to its traditional music and dance.

Hopefully, this center will serve as a bridge to bring the two cultures together, making it possible for artists of the two nations to cooperate and interact with each other.

Female Trainee Opens Up About the Reality of Sexual Favors in Korean Entertainment Industry

Female Trainee Opens Up About the Reality of Sexual Favors in Korean Entertainment Industry

Female Trainee Opens Up About the Reality of Sexual Favors in Korean Entertainment Industry On March 29 on JTBC, an exclusive interview with an ex-trainee from an entertainment agency was aired.

The interviewee stated, “When I belonged to an agency, even though I was a minor I was often asked to be present at a bar. In truth, there are agencies that function more like brokers that trade female trainee to different sponsors.”

During the episode, it was revealed that there are private brokers that work to connect the sponsors to the models and trainees. One broker stated, “A broker would have profiles of trainees of various entertainment companies as well as female students that are attending art schools.”

He continued, “To meet a female trainee, a sponsor would be charged on average approximately 220.00 USD per meeting. If they want to meet a very young female or someone from a prominent agency, they may be charged 700~900.00 USD. A sponsor must make a reservation at least a day ahead, and only those that are already on broker’s customer list can get a meeting.”

The problem of sexual favors in entertainment industry is nothing new in Korea. Beginning with the controversial suicide of actress Jang Ja Yeon in 2009, other female stars have admitted this problem recently.  

So Soompiers, what do you think of this dark side of the entertainment industry?
