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."

"The craziest thing a teacher did was to clean the homeroom for 5 hours. Because that day was the cleaning day, my teacher made us clean the homeroom from 3pm to 8pm."

Your Most Embarrassing Moments [Season 2: Embarrassing Moments - Ep3: Dong Woo Kim]


"The most embarrassing moment in my life was when I was in middle school. As I am extremely far from dancing, I had to dance to “Bang Bang Bang”, which is a song from Big Bang (Korean boy group idol), with my friends. Although it was a joke, even some people from the audiences said me to come down from stage.
Now in HAFS, I could make up the horrible memory by doing lots of successful performances, but if I still ask my friends about the performance that I did, they all say, “I was your most terrible performance that you’ve EVER done.”

Your Most Embarrassing Moments [Season 2: Embarrassing Moments - Ep2: Heejin Kang]


“My most embarrassing moment happened last year in my first MUN conference when I all of a sudden asked for the French delegate's phone number before we became friends. I never had a crush on him nor texted him. Every time I see him online on facebook I want to hide somewhere deep and dark.”

Your Most Embarrassing Moments [Season 2: Embarrassing Moments - Ep1: Ji Hyun Jun]


"There weren’t a lot of times when I got embarrassed, but when I did have these kind of moments, they were quite embarrassing and painful for me to forget. I was playing with my friends at the classroom about 1 year ago. My friends made me quite angry because they wanted to start a ‘heist’ and get away from me. So, they kept annoying me and I finally gave up my patience and started to run after them. They turned from the stairway and ran down the steps like kangaroos. I started to run after them but I misplaced my foot on the steps and I rolled over like 10 flights of stairs. I got up, and wished for no one to see me. But there was no luck because all the kids saw me roll and laughed their socks out. That was the most embarrassing moment in my life."

When was your funniest moment in your life? [Season 1: Funniest Moments - Ep3: Hyun Soh]


"Have you ever played soccer in youth? When I was 10 years old, our class had played soccer. I was very skillful in blocking ball so I did the goal keeper. Because it was the final match, our team and others did the best. One player in other team was very good at shooting the ball. When I got hit by the ball by her, my glasses were broke. It was really painful. Even though I got hurt, I told the coach that I will play. So in the break time, I taped the glasses and played again. Again, she shoot the ball but the ball bent! I thought the ball went up but it went to bottom. So I had to split my leg. I screamed loudly and that was so hilarious that all the players and even couch laughed. By splitting my leg, I caught the ball. Then, I blocked all the ball and we won by 2:0 (I remember). After this game, I never played soccer because I am afraid of splitting legs again. I am really inflexible. Do you know the pain of it? For me, it would be more painful than giving birth to baby. Seriously. When is your funniest moment in your life? I hope you enjoyed my story!^^"

When was your funniest moment in your life? [Season 1: Funniest Moments - Ep2: Hojung]


"One day, someone ordered fried chicken to my hagwon. My teacher asked the delivery man who ordered the chicken, and he said "brain" ordered it. We had no idea what he meant, until we later found out Brian ordered it.

When was your funniest moment in your life? [Season 1: Funniest Moments - Ep1: Eun Sae]


“It all started in a hot summer of 2017, when I first traveled to Okinawa for summer vacation. To make my vacation meaningful, I sought to do something active and adventurous, and I decided to try “skin-scuba diving” for the first time in my life. After having this amazing experience, I was totally captivated with the beauty that only skin-scuba diving possesses, which even led me to certificate
skin-scuba license this year.
If we imagine ourselves in space, probably, the most magnificent thing that we could do will be roaming freely regardless of the inertia, which I think it is very similar with skin-scuba diving. I can roam the whole ocean wherever and however I want, simultaneously enjoying the beautiful scenery. Sea is like an existing galaxy in Earth!
What is more, underwater creatures couldn’t be more beautiful. As I cannot see those amazing animals in daily lives, solely watching them made me feel secure and peaceful.
I hope everyone try skin-scuba diving once in their lives and share the
gratefulness of skin-scuba diving with me.”
