Getting Ready for War with N. Korea: Whatevs!

20 Aug

As many of you know, I work at the Korean National Commission for UNESCO (KNCU). And every year KNCU takes a day to address what should be done if war with North Korea was to ever break out. They have set tasks for everyone (i.e. call the police, medical assistance, etc.), emergency drills and even a briefing for cyber attacks.

Generally, everyone here in South Korea is pretty chill about anything that North Korea does. You know, when they send missiles into the sea or make threats to rain fire on the world, the western news is all up on that and people far away get scared. But people here are mostly like “Again? Oh hey! btw, did you watch Super Star K last night?!” It’s old news to everyone, and not such a big deal.

It seems like everyone in the office is like “aww, this again?” Although prepping for war is necessary, it seems to be more of a nuisance than anything.

If you like reading, I recommend North Korea: Another Country. It pretty much explains how everyone outside of Korea thinks North Korea is like an dangerous insane guy that’s swinging a knife back and forth, but everyone in South Korea thinks of them as a crazy harmless homeless man in the corner mumbling to himself. If you’ve ever been scared of North Korea, try giving it read.

I wish prepping for war with North Korea was like the video below. That would be mad fun!


Working at UNESCO Korea (KNCU)

I work at the Korean National Commission for UNESCO part-time. It’s a really good organization to work at, and I’m lucky to have this job! Here’s a short video explaining what it’s like to work at the Korean National Commission for UNESCO.
