I proudly proclaim myself to be a nerd. Not the "unwilling recipient of a swirly" type, but just the type who loves to learn. Luckily for myself, South Korea offers many museums to quench that thirst for knowledge. Admittedly, I have been drinking more soju and beer than knowledge lately, but I did finally get to my first Korean museum.

One of the most important events in the history of Korea is the Korean War. Many of the times, you will hear your students speak about the Korean War along with several important dynasties throughout the history of Korea. The one that is constantly brought up and related to during class time is the Chosun dynasty. To be honest, I never really understood the significance of the event until visiting the War Museum this past weekend.
