Korea in the News #4

South Korea and more importantly Suwon is mentioned in two articles that are on the New Zealand News website 'Stuff' today.

The first one is about Internet/technology addiction in children - as a teacher I see this all the time.  If the kids have any kind of break most of them pull out their phones, you try and talk to them but they are too busy playing games. The article mentions a Suwon elementary school that has a policy where they take the phones at the beginning of the day and return them when the kids are ready to leave.

The second article is about the toilet museum in Suwon, one of the many fabulous attractions of our fair city. I have not been yet but it's on my 'To-do' list.
