whatever is the reason...i think they should stop it....because, it will turn to abuse if not controlled. ..you can respect a person even without hitting them...you can discipline a person even without hitting them...it's how you raise a person that counts...not by hitting but by love and care...trust me..and it's not funny when you see a drama where people or youngsters get hit...it's abuse and bullying...and it might give other youngsters ideas

It's because teachers are very well respected in Korea. If my memory is correct, I think they get the same respect with the parents. And it doesn't matter too if a teacher's older than a student. Or you're the same age. You still have to respect them. And as for the seniors-juniors thing, they respect that too. Let's say, if I'm older than you, even if I'm not your sister, I can still hit you. And there's nothing you can do with that. It's just the fact that I'm older than you, and you should respect me. But grandparents get the highest respect. It's like, whatever they say, you have to do it. So respect is highly valued in S. Korea.

Well, that's what my korean friend told me. But this is really true. Respect is really, really important to them.
And they're not abusive; its just in their nature to be like that. And that's their way of teaching or disciplining someone.


Its really different from America!

So True. Ever notice how the teenage thug or wannabe gangster, that with attack for the simplest of reasons, stands and lowers head to teachers, parents and elders. Even adult children (30+s as well) meekly stand whilst getting either a verbal ear bashing or slapped. To kneel, the ultimate of respect, with hand rubbing the ultimate plea.

Yes, it really is. But that's their culture, that's how they were taught.

Yes. The elders get the highest respect. And the kneeling. Yes. That's very true.

this practice is really identified with korean dramas.. i always go "OUCH!" everytime they hit someone on the head or hit them with a broom, shoes or some other random thing they happen to be holding at that time... really really weird and definitely unfortunate for the one receiving the beating. tsk tsk tsk!

aside from that.. in korean dramas, people are always talking as if they are shouting or yelling at the other person. it's as if he/she is talking to somebody on the opposite side of the mountain even if that person is just right in front of them. weird.


yeah!!!... they are really loud!!! i have 2 korean classmates.. and when they're talking, its really loud.. then they're expression,,, "yahhhhh!!!!!..." they always saying that!!! and its really.. loud... and they love to hit each other... and when theyre talking to each other even its exam.. we dont know what they're saying, what if they're cheating.. or saying the answer to each other.. and my teacher dont bother about it... haha.. teachers giving them special treatment... but theyre really... good in math... i envy them for that... haizzz...

by the way we have the same surname.. are you my lost cousine...? joke!

I see the Korean guys threaten the girls they like, but not really being abusive and hitting anyone...
but then I don't think it is just Korean parents who discipline children by hitting them...

ahaha when i was young my dad used to smack me in the head when i was being rude/dumb/ just annoying..
and when i was in prep school my teacher used to pinch me when i didnt know the answer to the multiplication table *seriously multiplication in prep school? i was 4*
my parents were outraged when they found out, i was in elementary so they couldnt do anything by then, but i was traumatized because of that teacher, i actually thought teachers can hit their students.. (in the philippines at that time)
but then after i found out teachers were not supposed to hit us, i never let any teacher go over the line..
i respect then and all but if they hit me or someone or just abuse their power they'll be hearing from my parents lawyer..
when i got into college i had fights with a lot of my prof who abused their students. i dont care i was right they couldnt tell the dean on me coz i had my classmates to back me up and they might end up loosing their jobs..
hahaha one of them actually lost their job..

i respect my teachers i do very much im friends with most of them actually, but they should also respect me as a student too.. respect is a two way street, and it should be earned..
