While Korea is slowly changing and evolving into a more liberal and accepting society, it's roots in Confucianism still hold strong, and the older generations drag their feet and cling to the ideas of Confucianism!  For example, today, I received a message about tomorrow's teacher outing.  It said that the ladies need to arrive at school 20 minutes early to prepare the snacks! Could you imagine if this message were sent to the staff at a school in America, telling the female teachers to come 20 minutes before the male teachers to cut fruit and sort cookies!  There would be an uproar about equality!  Instead, the women here just secretly shake their heads and abide by the request...  and I can't blame them, because I'll be arriving 20 minutes early too.  Uuughhh
