Only In Korea Podcast: Arirang English Video FAIL

Chance Dorland
Written by Chance Dorland

OinK – Only in Korea Facebook group creator Travis Hull joins former Arirang employee Daniel Lee & KoreaFM.net‘s Chance Dorland to explain how a Facebook post criticizing the poor English of Arirang TV’s Aerial Korea: Ep 13: Busan video led to the removal of all “Aerial Korea” videos from the company’s YouTube channel.

The trio then discuss how rather than hiring based on English ability & actual experience in the field, the visa-centric hiring system used by many of South Korea’s English media companies creates the conditions that allow these & other mistakes to be made over & over again. The original Arirang video is still available on their website at http://www.arirang.co.kr/OtherVideos/Aerial_Korea.asp?F_KEY=3043.
