Korea’s Education System

Check out this interesting video highlighting Korea’s academic system. Seems at least thrice as stressful as Singapore, no? Recently, I do see quite a few Koreans studying in Singapore, possibly to them it is less stressful in Singapore compared to Korea.

One comment in the video summarized it: “How sad, all that for a spot in university that isn’t ranked high internationally, an average job with average pay and a crappy personal life that barely exists.”

Video features:

  • Hagwons (Korea tuition centres)
  • Superstar Tutors
  • Plastic Surgery
  • University Admissions
  • Alternative New Schools in Korea
