Sagulsan Sect – Gulsansa-ji Temple Site (Gangneung, Gangwon-do)

Koreabridge - Tue, 2022-02-08 00:06
A Portrait of Beomil-guksa (810-889 A.D.). (Picture Courtesy of this Website).

The Sagulsan sect was founded by National Preceptor Beomil (810-889 A.D.) during the reign of King Munseong of Silla (r. 839-857 A.D.). At the time of the Nine Mountain Schools of Seon, the Sagulsan sect, which was located out of Gulsansa Temple in Gangneung, Gangwon-do, was the most prosperous of the nine. Beomil was also known as Pumil, and he received the posthumous title of Tonghyo.

Beomil’s family name was Kim, and his mother belonged to the Ji clan. He was born in 810 A.D. after his mother was pregnant for an astounding thirteen months. When he was born, he was said to have a conch-tuft on top of his head and a pearl on his forehead just like the god Brahma. At the age of fifteen, Beomil left to become a monk. He took his precepts four years later in 829 A.D.

In 831 A.D., Beomil traveled to Tang China (618–690, 705–907 A.D.), where he received the Mind Seal from the Chan Master Yanguan Qian (750-824 A.D.). Afterwards, Beomil traveled on to Mt. Yao. He also visited other famous sites, where he first encountered the persecution of Buddhists under the reign of Emperor Wuzong of Tang (r. 841-846 A.D.). As a result, Beomil hid because Buddhist monks were being executed and temples were being destroyed. However, and according to legend, Beomil was unable to find a place to hide. Eventually, and through the assistance of a Sanshin (Mountain Spirit), Beomil found a place to hide on Mt. Shang. Eventually, he traveled to Mt. Caoxi, where he intended to pay his respects to the Sixth Patriarch, Huineng (638-713 A.D.). It was while paying his respects that he received an auspicious sign from a perfume cloud that was hovering around the shrine that housed Huineng’s remains. Additionally, there were cranes crying above the shrine, as well.

Finally, Beomil returned to Silla in 846 A.D. and founded Gulsansa Temple, which was the base for the Sagulsan sect. In total, Beomil met three kings, who asked him to become national priest. Those kings were King Gyeongmun of Silla (r. 861-875), King Heongang of Silla (r. 875-886), and King Jeonggang of Silla (r. 886-887). He rebuffed all three to focus on meditation. Beomil would stay at his temple for the next forty years until he died. He would pass away in 889 A.D. Among his disciples, who would help spread his teachings, were Nangwon and Nanggong (832-916 A.D.).

“To Wash” and “To Clean” in Korean | Korean FAQ

Koreabridge - Mon, 2022-02-07 18:19

I remember trying to use 씻다 everywhere when I first learned it. But it wasn't until a bit later when I learned about 닦다 and 청소하다, and then 감다, and others. So I wanted to put together a simple guide for anyone wondering about how to say "to wash" or "to clean," to help other people who might have thought the same way as I did when I was a beginner.

This video covers using the verbs 씻다, 닦다, 세수하다, 청소하다, 빨다, 감다, and 헹구다.

So you want to teach English in Korea

Koreabridge - Sun, 2022-02-06 05:53

I’ve been living in Korea for over a year, and have gone deep diving into the job search world twice. Now I might need to add that I did not start this journey totally blind.

A few of my former classmates and friends have taught English in Korea, so I was able to get nuggets of information from each of them. I got a little glimpse into what life in Korea would be like until….well…the thing that “shall not be named” started in 2020. So comparing my experience to any prior tales and legends of Korea was now nonsensical.

However, I was still determined to make it over to this country and find the right place to teach. I also wanted to enjoy my time here, despite the quite aggressive restrictions.

Let’s get to the point now, shall we? Below are the 5 phases of finding the perfect English teaching job (at a private academy, aka hagwon).


This time is very critical, and it’s a mistake that I made. I hadn’t prepared any documents before diving into the job search world. Learn from me and have them ready before you start looking for jobs.

So, at the four month mark, send the documents in to the appropriate processor.

The most important documents are…

  1. Copy of University Diploma (apostilled) – If you don’t have yours anymore, you can request one from your university’s registrar. It cost me $10.
  2. FBI Criminal Background Check (apostilled)  on their website, it’s called an Identity History Summary Check. The processing of this document will be a little different for you, as they now have made it possible to do digitally. Please read all the information on their page in detail to know how to proceed. While you technically have to get fingerprinted by a professional, I didn’t have that ability. I was in Morocco and the police doesn’t do fingerprints unless it’s for an official reason (theirs). So, I had to take matters into my own hands (or fingers) and learn from YouTube how to do the thing!!! And I did. And I mailed in like 8 copies of each document! It worked!
  3. Copy of Driver’s License (apostilled) – Korea has an agreement with some U.S. states that doesn’t require you to take any tests in order to get the Korea license. You can just go into the driver’s office and trade it in, if you plan to drive in Korea, that is.

Other things to have prepared

  1. Education-tailored resume
  2. Cover letter – this is something you will just paste into the email when sending one to a job posting. Just state when you want to start, where, what age group you want to teach, and any education experience you have. Make it super simple. Just a short paragraph will do.
  3. Intro Video – Just a video introducing yourself to the school and why you want to teach /teach in Korea.

**Quick note on eligibility to teach English in Korea. In addition to the former documents, you need to have a clean health check. And, your passport should be from one of the 7 English-speaking countries: USA, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, UK, Ireland, Australia.


So one month goes by after you had sent in your documents for processing. Maybe you had received some back, and maybe you’re still waiting on some. Nevertheless, it is time to start lookin’!

Here are the top websites that recruiters (and, on occasion, schools) use to post jobs.

  1. Dave’s ESL Cafe – tons of jobs on here. Not just for Korea, but also for China and other countries!
  2. Korvia – You can apply for private academies (hagwons) or for the public school program EPIK
  3. Koreabridge – In addition to being a job board, it is also a community for classified ads, and the perfect place to buy or sell something (a lot of the time you can get lots of stuff for free because teachers are always leaving!)
  4. English Teachers in Busan (Facebook group) – if you’re looking to work in Busan
  5. English Teaching Jobs in Korea (Facebook group) – another great place to look for jobs.
  6. EPIK – This is the government public school teaching program. I highly recommend it if you’re not super set on a specific location. You get way more holidays, you teach less hours, and you more likely would have a healthier working environment.


Be prepared to answer the following questions:

  1. What age group do you prefer to teach? ( 3 years old- early elem school, or elem school – middle school)? They usually call the younger group kindy although some of them might be too young for kindergarten.
  2. What time during the day, morning or afternoon, do you want to teach? Usually the kindy group is something like 10 – 6 and the older group is 1 – 9. So this really depends on what’s more important to you, the age or the time of working?
  3. What is your experience in teaching?
  4. What is your desired salary? I recommend 2.4 million starting salary for Busan and other cities (not sure about Seoul).


  1. If they say a school wants to hire you before you even interview with them.
  2. If the recruiter seems to oversell themself, or seem super duper busy.
  3. If they are in any way unprofessional during the initial interview.
  4. Make you compete to lower your salary against other teachers after you interview for a school.


While you may initially think that the interview is for the school to see if you’re the right fit, actually it’s more like the other way around. As long as you are confident and a little charming, there is a high chance that the school will want to hire you.

If you don’t feel confident, well, fake it til ya make it!!

And the best way to do this is to ask THEM the questions so you can see if they’re a good fit for YOU!

Here are some questions you should ask the school:

  1. Can I speak to a current foreign teacher, or the one that I’m replacing? If they say yes, then there is a chance that they are on good standing with the teachers and it might be a somewhat healthy environment. If no, then that’s a red flag.
  2. What is the maximum number of teaching hours per week? This means what is the # of hours that you will actually be teaching students. I would shoot for somewhere around 25 – 28 hours.
  3. What hours is the school open? Some schools are literally open 10 hours a day, so you really want to make sure you know how many of your hours you will be spending there.
  4. What are the ages of the students?
  5. What kinds of classes will I teach? (For me, I teach speaking, debate, reading)
  6. What kinds of teaching materials do you use? Is there room for me to create lessons?
  7. How many teachers are there total?
  8. How many foreign teachers are there? You want to work somewhere that has at least 3 foreign teachers.
  9. How long is the lunch/dinner break?
  10. Will you provide accommodation and food during quarantine? THEY SHOULD!


Here are some important points to look for in a contract.

  1. Salary – Should match what you agreed on.
  2. Pension – School pays half and you pay half. The cool part is that you will get it all back when you go back home.
  3. Severance – You are entitled to a severance when you complete the contract. It is worth one month’s pay.
  4. Health Insurance – School pays half, and you pay half.
  5. Vacation – You should at least get 5 days off in the summer and 5 days off in the winter. Paid, of course.
  6. Housing – Check to make sure they provide the basic essentials like a bed, kitchen appliances, etc.

These are all the basics of landing a teaching job in Korea. Please don’t hesitate to comment and ask questions or add input!

Simwonsa Temple – 심원사 (Seongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do)

Koreabridge - Thu, 2022-02-03 23:43
Simwonsa Temple in Seongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do. Temple History

Simwonsa Temple is located in the northeastern part of Gayasan National Park in Seongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do. In fact, Simwonsa Temple isn’t all that far away from the famed Haeinsa Temple, which is also located in Gayasan National Park. It’s believed that Simwonsa Temple was first founded during Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.) some time in the 8th century. Yi Sung-in, who was also known under the pen-name of Doeun, and who was born in Seongju during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392), wrote about the temple in one of his poems entitled “Gimsimwonjeongro.” In this poem, he describes the temple as “The ancient temple, Simwonsa Temple, stands on Mt. Gayasan.” Additionally, and because of Simwonsa Temple’s lengthy history, it was written about in other later Goryeo Dynasty texts, as well.

During the reign of King Jungjong of Joseon (r. 1506-1544), the monk Jiwon renovated Simwonsa Temple. However, Simwonsa Temple was completely destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (1592-1598). Since its destruction at this time, there were several attempts to rebuild Simwonsa Temple. However, these attempts stopped by the end of the 18th century.

Simwonsa Temple was finally rebuilt in 2003 but only after extensive excavation work had been conducted on the former temple site. It was through this excavation that the original dimensions of the temple site were discovered. The original temple site was eighty metres from north to south and one hundred metres from east to west. The main hall once stood on a four-layered foundation. The temple was typical in its layout from the Unified Silla period. Based upon this excavation, Simwonsa Temple was restored to its original form in 2003 under the Cultural Tourism Resource Restoration Plan. So with the historic temple layout in mind, a newly built Daeung-jeon Hall, a Geukrak-jeon Hall, and a Yaksa-jeon Hall were made.

Also of note, Simwonsa Temple is home to the printing woodblock known as Gilhyung chugwol hoenggan in Korean. This is Korean Treasure #1647. This printing block was first carved in June, 1219 at Buseoksa Temple. The Gilhyung chugwol hoenggan is one of the oldest printing blocks with a clearly established date and place of creation. To give this wood printing block some context, the Tripitaka Koreana at Haeinsa Temple was first started in 1236 and completed in 1251. This printing block is carved with horizontally written text on it. The text lists auspicious and inauspicious dates for various activities based on astrology, or “unmyeonghak” in Korean; and the five elements theory, or “ohaeng” in Korean. This printing block is a compilation of selected texts on related themes. So not only is this wood printing block important because it’s one of the oldest, but it’s also important because it gives us insight into the everyday activities of ordinary people.

The Printing Woodblock of Gilhyung chugwol hoenggan (Picture courtesy of the Cultural Heritage Administration). Temple Layout

You first approach Simwonsa Temple to the left of the eastern entry gates at Gayasan National Park. The entire temple grounds are beautifully framed by the surrounding mountains of Mt. Gaysan (1432.6 m). Past a collection of nine biseok (stele), and a handful of buildings like the monks’ dorms, the kitchen, and the visitors’ centre, you’ll finally arrive inside the main temple courtyard at Simwonsa Temple.

Out in front of the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find the Jeongjung Sambotap, which is a three-story pagoda that dates back to Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.). To the rear of this ancient pagoda is the newly constructed Daeung-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to the main hall are adorned with murals from the life of Wonhyo-daesa (617-686 A.D.). Stepping inside the Daeung-jeon Hall, and resting all alone on the main altar, is a statue dedicated to Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). The interior walls of the Daeung-jeon Hall are adorned with Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals). These paintings are joined to the right by an elaborate Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha) mural, as well as a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

To the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the temple’s Geukrak-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to this hall are filled with various celestially themed murals. As for the interior, and resting on the main altar of the Geukrak-jeon Hall, is a statue dedicated to Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). And to the right of the Daeung-jeon Hall is a newly constructed, and rather uniquely shaped, Yaksa-jeon Hall. The low-lying exterior ceiling is adorned with beautiful white crane murals, as well as various murals dedicated to various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas like Yaksayeorae-bul (The Medicine Buddha), Wolgwang-bosal (The Moonlight Bodhisattva), and Ilwang-bosal (The Sunlight Bodhisattva). As for the interior of this rather diminutive shrine hall, there sits a solitary image dedicated to Yaksayeorae-bul, who is holding a medicine bowl.

To the rear of the Yaksa-jeon Hall, and up a flight of uneven stairs, you’ll arrive at the Sanshin-gak Hall. This shaman shrine hall has a commanding view of the rest of the temple grounds and the valley below. There are three entrances to this Sanshin-gak hall. Each is accompanied by a signboard. These signboards read: 산신각 (Sanshin-gak), 숭모전 (Sungmo-jeon), 정견각 (Jeonggyeon-gak). The signboard to the far left refers to the Sanshin-gak Hall, while the one in the middle is the Sungmo-jeon Hall, which means “Highly Admiring Worship Hall” in English. And the third signboard, which hangs above the far right door, refers to the name of the female Mountain Spirit inside, Jeonggyeon-moju. This is the name of the female Sanshin that takes up residence on Mt. Gayasan. The exterior walls to this shaman shrine hall are beautifully adorned with various murals like a pond, a persimmon tree, a tiger, and a vibrantly painted Jeonggyeon-moju. As for the interior, and sitting all alone inside, is a statue of the aforementioned female Sanshin, Jeonggyeon-moju. The Sanshin-gak Hall at Simwonsa Temple is definitely one of the more beautiful Sanshin-gak Halls you’ll find in Korea.

How To Get There

From the Seongju Intercity Bus Terminal – 성주버스정류장, you’ll need to take a bus that says “송계 – 수륜 – 백운동” on it. Take this bus for fourteen stops, which should take about forty minutes. You’ll then need to get off at the Gayasan National Park. From the Gayasan National Park stop, you’ll need to walk nearly eight hundred metres, or twelve minutes, to get to Simwonsa Temple. Just follow the signs.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10

Simwonsa Temple is beautifully situated in Gayasan National Park. But if the view doesn’t impress you with the towering mountains and sprawling valleys, the temple shrine halls will. Have a look around each of the three temple shrine halls in the lower courtyard to see some beautiful dancheong and temple artwork. But perhaps the most impressive structure at Simwonsa Temple is the Sanshin-gak Hall with a female Sanshin (Mountain Spirit) inside it.
