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."
