One of the big differences between Shonan High in Japan and Baemoon High in Korea is that the students here know so much more about football. You’d think this would be good, and in many ways it is- lots of students have actually heard of Birmingham City, and we can discuss the students favourite teams (Man Utd and/or Arsenal and/or Liverpool and/or Chelsea).

On the other hand instead of being told I’m like David Beckham (as I was in Japan), the Korean students think I look more like these two ugly mugs…

Yes, I’ve been compared to Kevin Doyle, and Stuart Downing. I can’t see the resemblance to either really….can you?
