Remember that behind the scenes footage we did on our episode of Running Man, where Nichkhun gives Martina’s students a shout out? That was meant to be seen by Martina’s students for their school festival, which just happened last week. Here’s a video of the school festival, but not including Martina’s students reactions to seeing Nichkhun. Unfortunately, we were not there when the video was being shown, but someone else does have a video of it. We’ve asked them for the video, and hopefully, someday soon, we’ll be able to post that up as well :D

Now, Korean School Festivals are really quite an awesome experience. Students transform their classrooms into something different for a day, like a café, or a nail salon, or a game room, or a haunted house. You can go from class to class and experience something different and fun in each room. So we did! We brought the camera along for the ride. We couldn’t bring it into the haunted house, unfortunately, because it was too crowded in there and way too dark anyways. Too bad!

Also, students do performances on stage, be it singing a song, playing instruments, or doing a dance. They practice for a long, long time, all for this day. Martina and one of her co-teachers decided to do something similar. They, too, had a performance for the students. Unfortunately, we can’t put it on YouTube because of copyright issues (the music in the background isn’t ours), so we’ll be posting it on our Facebook Fan Page tomorrow. Huzzah!

Anyhow, it’s stuff like this that makes teaching English in Korea so awesome, and they’re definitely some of the fondest memories we’ll have of our students. Finally, as always, big thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations! Hopefully they won’t get bored of translating any time soon. Bless em!

  2. awesome festival!
    hmm…just wanted to let you know that kimonos for both men and women are supposed to be worn with the left side over the right side (the opposite is only used for corpses in burials) so if/when you guys get to go visit Japan, remember that! =]

  7. your dance was very good martina hhh

    and i already know the Korean students pressuer…. so i understand the students mind;;;

  8. OMG we need this in New York! IT looks like so much fun and I'm sure that it's a great thing having a break from studying when the festivals come in :P But yeah I can't help but comment about the fact that I just saw DBSK and JYJ on one of the classroom's wall :D

  9. We didn't want to post Martina's dance on YouTube because that included a lot of music that wasn't ours. For Music Mondays, we don't use anyone else's music. The only thing we use is two seconds worth of a video clip in a small box in the corners of the screen. We're claiming Fair Use on them, because we're reviewing and commenting on them, rather than just showing them for their own sake. It's a fine line, I know.

  10. I like Martina's new hair style. Can't wait 'till tomorrow~

  11. Looks like so much fun!! When did the kids get to see the Nickhun video? What was their response like? Now I gotta join your facebook to see the rest. :-p

    • They saw it at the beginning of the festival, while Martina was getting ready for her performance and Simon was with her. A student filmed the whole festival, though, so we're trying to get the footage of the students' reactions to Nichkhun from her :D

  12. who the lady that was next to you the whole time? you didnt introduce her lol

  13. Kinda hard to explain. I think we'll have to make a video for it :D

  14. How come i see only girls? no boys?

  15. sorry for the "spam" but i cant seem to find the rest of the footage… do i need to have facebook to see it?
    im one of those that refuse to get addicted to facebook :P

  16. They’re called immigrants.  Same as the, oh, English, Scottish, Ukrainian, Doukhobors, Greeks, etc.

  17. Err, no. They're from South Korea.
