Brian Song
Cornerstone Collegiate Academy of Seoul
10th Grade (Sophomore)

The funniest moment I had was when I played a game of League of Legends with a friend who was a newbie. I was teaching him how to play a position in the game, and it was quite fun watching him making silly mistakes.

One Fact People don't Know About You [Season 5: Confession Time - Ep3: Shim hyung Seok]


"One fact that people don’t know about me is that I am a huge fan in Anima, especially Japanese animations. While I am at school, I try to act like a normal student by paying attention in class, talking and interacting with friends, having a fun time, and etc. But in my heart and my mind, there is always one thought that is stuck there. It is anima. When I come home and when there is nothing to do all day, I sit at my desk and watch animations on my computer. And I draw some of the characters of the animation or I will do research about the animation and its history and what not. Sometimes I post my own drawings on animation. Some people might know about this, but when people see me at school, they can’t know what I am very interested in because I act like a normal at school. So I guess one fact that people don’t know me is that I am an Anima manic!"

One Fact People don't Know About You [Season 5: Confession Time - Ep2: Grace Kim]


"I draw and doodle a lot on a notepad, actually. I used to draw since I was in 7th grade, and it became my solid hobby. Though most closely related people might not understand, but now I'm thinking of getting a job related to this. This thing literally shaped my life."

Best or Worst Thing of Being a Student [Season 4: Best or Worst Thing - Ep4: Ian Eom]


"The best thing about being a student is that there are many opportunities of learning, and as a student, we don’t have to compensate for making those mistakes: although there are tiresome consequences of these failures, but if the student remembers and learns something from the mistake, the student is now a better person than before. The worst thing about being a student is that we are hindered by the society as the rising kids who doesn’t know anything. Due to the fact that you’re a student, most adults cut you off from decent and complicated conversations from the public as a whole, which is bothersome in some ways. "

Best or Worst Thing of Being a Student [Season 4: Best or Worst Thing - Ep2: Bentley Sky Choi]


"I think the biggest advantage that I get as a student is “student discount.” For example, when I take a bus with a student discount card, I get to pay only 720 won and costs 80 won when I transfer, but adults have to pay 1200 won and 150 won each time when they transfer. Student discount not only applies when I take public transportation but also applies at amusement parks or some restaurants.
Although there are advantages as being a student, I also think there are quite many disadvantages. First of all, the time we spend at school is too long which is ineffective. By going to school, we receive standardized education and cannot receive the education that we truly want to get. There can be students who wants to passionately study computer science or biology, but they can’t actually receive the appropriate education they wish to be taught, but solely following the systems. Also, people who dropped out of school to follow their true dreams against from standardized systems receive negative views along with the thought that they have done something bad or did not follow the rules diligently. Therefore, I think the restriction of freedom from school is the biggest disadvantage of being a student."

Best or Worst Thing of Being a Student [Season 4: Best or Worst Thing - Ep1: Taylor Kim]


"The good thing about being a student is that freedom is provided to us at a small cost: even if we make silly mistakes, it isn't as devastating to our lives compared to adults. We also have freedom to do whatever we want, wherever we want, and with whomever we want.
The bad thing is pretty much the opposite: we have too many restrictions on various products such as movies, foods, drinks, and so on. Not that it's bad to be secure from dangerous materials, but the fact is that students are restricted.
Also, being a student means that there will be numerous individuals undermining us for being too young to do anything."

Your Most Craziest Moments [Season 3: Craziest Moments - Ep4: Hannah Lee]


"When I was in 7th grade, I had a classmate who got bullied by others. He looked so weary and hurt, so I told the teacher about it: how he was bullied and who did it. However, this teacher decided to solve the issue in the worst way possible: he brought up the perpetrates and the outcast and made the bullies apologize. Due to this, I also became the later target of those bullies."

Your Most Craziest Moments [Season 3: Craziest Moments - Ep3: Hae Min Kim]


"Lots of teachers do a lot of crazy things. But the craziest thing a teacher ever did was when he/she hit a student for not asking to go to the toilet properly. Teachers have rights to punish students when they are not listening to classes, but students also have rights that they should not be touched unwanted. This student was quite interesting. He didn’t talk all lot to teachers, only using sign languages to be cute, but he talked to us like there was nothing wrong. He went to the teacher, pointed at the door, and smiled. But the teacher called him forward and told him to bend his body forward and smacked his back. I have never seen a teacher do this in school. That was the craziest thing a teacher ever did, hitting a student’s back for just joking."

Your Most Craziest Moments [Season 3: Craziest Moments - Ep2: Jihoon Park]


"The craziest thing a teacher ever did was during my sophomore year. We had a lockdown drill for 5 hours, so our history teacher (he was very old) decided to talk about his life and the life lessons he learned as a teenager for 4 hours. It was very boring and no one heard a word he said, since most of us were busy doing our own stuff, but I was amazed by the fact that he talked by himself for 4 hours straight."
