One commenter to Korea Beat's post about the abusive teacher in Ulsan put up links from his own blog, where he has collected pictures of the assorted weaponry---"love sticks"---his Korean coworkers take to class. There are two photogalleries, here and here. My favorite is the goddamn plastic baseball bat.
Whether they're actually used for beatings, for noise-making, or simply for intimidation---a little of all three, from what I've seen---that so many teachers go to class armed does raise some questions about methodology and the student-teacher relationship. As NSETs we have our "affection" for students and our methodology challenged quite frequently, though I wonder why, if these things are so important, why domestic teachers aren't held accountable.
My apologies for the ambiguous title, I know it will attract people looking for something else. Most of you came here wanting to learn more about the "love stick" set at Dasarang Chicken, but unfortunately I don't have any follow up on that beyond my original findings: "it's really good."
