We’re EPIK teachers currently living in Daejeon and working in middle schools.

The first year was amazing

The second year was a disaster

We’re on our third year here and it’s hard to say what it will be like. We’ve generally stopped frequently blogging because of netizens and “if you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all.”

We applied to EPIK in 2013 and 2014 so our posts could be outdated for anyone currently applying.

    1. Thanks for checking out our blog and thanks for the offer! We’ll probably have to ask you about packing before we leave. If you have anything to recommend now feel free to list them here – it will be great to reference when we get closer πŸ™‚

  1. I just saw you’re heading to daejeon this month ?! We’re in daejeon too so if you’ve got any questions feel free to ask! Been here since sept 2012 but been in Korean before back in 2008.:)

    1. Thanks! So far not yet but I’m sure we’ll be baffled when we first get to Daejeon. We’re sorry about the confusion and misinformation in our link to your apartment/blog. We’ve removed it.

  2. Hey, glad to see that you’ve arrived safely. I know I haven’t been blogging, but if you would like to meet up once you’ve settled into Daejeon, I’d be happy to provide my kakao information and show you around. I hope your jet lag gets better!

    1. Thanks! We’ll see – obviously we don’t have phones and didn’t set up Kakao before we left/it will be a while before it gets set up. If we do we’ll just email you, thanks for the offer! πŸ™‚

  3. Hey there, guys!
    I actually stumbled on your blog a few months back. I’m a late start Daejeon person and I just found out I have middle schools, too! (SQUEE! I’m pumped because I WANTED M.S.!) Anywho, I thought I’d try to reach out and see if you had any “best tips and tricks” for MSers or even if you wanted get coffee when I get into town!
    Thanks for all of your help! Your blog has been great. Loved that I randomly read your post about how you were placed in middle schools last week and a few days later discovered I got middle school, too! πŸ™‚
