The Korea Post notices

Handong Global University stands out with many distinguishing features

An unrivaled long string of scholarships, financial assistance

Most of the high school graduates and their parents in Korea tend to insist on winning matriculation ‘at all cost’ at Seoul National University or other ‘prestigious’ universities in Seoul such as Yonsei, Korea, Ewha (for women), Sogang and a number of others.

However, closely examining other universities in Korea, such as those in different localities out of the capital city, one is appalled at the outstanding features of other universities in various localities, which stand out in various aspects.

For further details, please visit: /news/view.html?section=162&category=184&no=947

President Seung-hoon Chang of the University cordially invites Your Excellency with Madam, with other Ambassadors and Madams, to visit the University on Thursday 11 June 2015 and invitation has already been forwarded to each Excellency. In case of our transmission failure, please advise us at 2298-1740/2 or 1745/6. Our cellphone numbers are 010-5201-1740 (Chairman Lee), 010-3388-1682 (Korean) and email address

Humor from a generous former Asian ambassador

Evils of the spirit

A father was trying to teach his young son the evils of alcohol.

He put one worm in a glass of water and another worm in a glass of whiskey.

The worm in the water lived, while the one in the whiskey curled up and died.

"All right, son," asked the father, "what does that show you?"

"Dad, it shows that if you drink alcohol, you will not have worms."

Change of Will

An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years.

He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted with a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%.

The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again."

The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet.  I just sit around and listen to the conversations..............  I've changed my will three times already!"

What? What?

A blonde bought a brand new car and decided to drive down from some place far off, to meet this friend. She reached there in a few hours. After spending a few days there, she decided to return, and called up her mother to expect her in the evening. But she didn't reach home in the evening and not the next day either. When she finally reached home on the third day, her distraught mother ran and asked her what happened?

She got out, obviously very tired from a long journey, and said, "These car designers are crazy! They have four gears for going forward, but only one for going back!"

Hankuk Kyungje

Abusive words

The preacher is repairing the church fence. Little Johnny is standing nearby for a long while.

The preacher asks him, “Do you want to speak with, son?”

“No, I’m just waiting.”

“Waiting for what?”

“Waiting to hear what a preacher says when he hits his finger with a hammer.”
