    Sexual Assault is part of the ROK Military Experience. Might as well do it right.

    What are the soldiers saying? During the Second World War, Japanese soldiers would put both arms up like that and say banzei (Kana: ばんぜい). So maybe these young Korean ladies are saying manse (만세).

    They better not give the kid on the right an M-16 or K-2.

    They will put their eye out.

    It looks like they’re practicing controlling risers for practice jumps out of the 35 ft. mock tower. It’s pretty sad statement for a developed country like Korea when it constantly has to resort to government sponsored military style boot camp experiences in order to provide extracurricular experiences and activities for children. I mean, where are all the intermediary organizations that should fill in the gap between local schools and the military/government? The sad fact is that there aren’t many, and it seems that the only adults who have a community ethos and a desire to mentor young people are retired ROK Marines, as many of these kind of camps are their brainchild.
