Mook Of The Week

This week's mook is whoever put the sidewalk in across the street from the elementary/middle school in Oksan. The street that runs past my hagwon runs another block south before ending in a T-intersection at the school. The sidewalk was installed running east and west from that intersection. Railings were put in place to separate the sidewalk from the street, and the usual signage about looking out for kids was added. There're speed bumps on the road as well, encouraging everyone to take it slow where children are apt to be crossing the street. Not that it slows the mooks down very much. I mean, if you're a stupid shit-for-brains moron with no more brains than God gave a tree stump, why would you slow down for a speed bump, or a sign, or a child in the middle of a crosswalk?
That's why the sidewalk was a great idea. It gives the kids a kind of a refuge from the mooks going past.
the sidewalk (east and west) STOPS in the middle of the block, forcing whoever is using it back out onto the street.
What the kimchi?!
Who installs half a sidewalk?
A mook, that's who!


  1. I was visiting Seoul and walking with a little luggage to the subway station. A madame (the woman pimp) stopped me and told me I could get sex for $20!?! I was in a hurry and shook her off, but only 20? Has the prostitution crackdown hit that hard that all the Johns are scared to go?

    I am curious what kind of nasty woman that would for only 20? She just said it was aggashi.

  2. A friend of mine was visiting when I lived in YongaAm-dong, Cheongju. When he rented his $20 room at a love hotel he was told he could get a woman too for $20.
