Reply Haruna Aminu says: January 26, 2019 at 10:22 am The way they answer the questions is a testament to their knowledge, highly educated society, and overall consciousness. However, sleeping 4-6 hours is certainly not enough for a normal, healthy individual. At least, an individual should get 7-8 hours sleep per day. No wonder they are overly stressed, and have high suicide rates! “All works, no play makes Jack a dull boy”. In this fast-paced, highly technological world, people need rest more than ever. So, they need to loosen up a bit. I greatly admire the Korean people and their society. In fact, I watch a lot of their historical dramas. Reply Lee Kaliya says: January 29, 2019 at 11:55 am I'm 15years old and I live in south korea. When the school is over like 4pm we go to academy school. It is over like 10pm. And when that is over we have to study exams and homeworks. Most of my freinds go to bed at 2 am in the morning. I don't think this system is wrong but it isn't right either. Sorry for my english ability😢 Reply space alien says: January 29, 2019 at 5:15 pm How the heck does that woman think 6 hours of sleep is too much and yet she has such healthy skin???? HOWWW??

Reply brian yvr says: February 5, 2019 at 1:03 pm the Korean govt. needs to shut-down like 70% of the universities in Korea. Just keep the SKY universities, KAIST, POSTECH and a few others. There are way too many universities grads, but not enough jobs. Those 70% that should be shut down rank very poorly on the international stage and give students false hope. The korean govt. should instead elevate the blue collar professions like they do in Switzerland/Germany and also deregulate industries to make it easier for start-ups to survive Reply F 1000000 says: February 6, 2019 at 11:17 pm Police driving students to exams if late for the entrance exam, taxis dropping them off for free, airplanes ordered to re-route to help students focus on the exam… what in the world??? Reply 손하준 says: February 8, 2019 at 2:43 am I see that studying this long is not healthy telling from the comments. What would be the average time to study?

Performance in anything I do goes dooown… I don't save 2-3 hours of daytime by sleeping less. I waste pretty much half of the time I'm awake by sleeping less.

Reply 21minute says: February 23, 2019 at 2:23 pm In a lot of Asian countries, you're considered a failure if you don't have at least a bachelor's degree. Also, you know at least one or two families who force their kids to go to a medical school. Reply Cano says: February 27, 2019 at 12:18 am 3:30 hahahahahhahaahaha Reply Flower Lover says: March 8, 2019 at 3:40 pm My childhood is spent playing in nature and interacting with other people, we study 6-10 hours / day, and play from noon to sunset. now im turning 20. and I realized how happy I was to run like a horse, fly as free as a bird, and be full of laughter. until now my voice playing with friends made me happy with my adult body, and I want my future children to feel the same freedom. it's not about lazy education, but learning outdoors and looking for answers to questions that the brain of a young child creates is the best way to learn..Note: dont forget to be happy dear. Live your life Reply simunator says: March 11, 2019 at 9:47 am lol those morons are falling for the degree scam too now Reply weo1weo1weo1 says: March 16, 2019 at 5:52 am I live in Canada. I pretty much just half-ass graduated high school, then half-ass got into University. and I assume after I graduate I will get a half-ass job…. what is the meaning of life???? Reply Archana Akham says: March 24, 2019 at 2:06 am I sleep almost 8 hours a day and also I don't actually like to study for a long time in the remaining hours in a day ….So the conclusion is I'm a stupid hopeless lazy ass😭 Reply Sarayu Segu says: April 1, 2019 at 3:36 pm my teacher wants her students to sleep 10h during finals. HAS SHE SEEN KOREANS!!!!! Reply focus human says: April 2, 2019 at 4:37 am Korea's rapid development is due to education. Much of Educated people is asset of a nation. Reply wild flowers says: April 3, 2019 at 7:01 pm back then when i was in high school i also only slept 6hours too, even i have a lot of home work i still enjoyed it. but it feels so different when i go to university, everything is hard. i'm so close to give up, i'm ready to be drop out. Reply fredlee john says: April 4, 2019 at 1:36 pm Going to University and then you get to be treated like a normal human being. I am not normal then Reply Gucci Deym says: April 6, 2019 at 5:35 am here in the Philippines not all i think,but students dont go with 4hr sleep,gets distracted from airplane or what,students here not only in the University,we tended to familiarize the meanings and certain definitions. Yes we memorize some,but not all cuz it can cause stress to us students. Also,we tend to sleep long maybe this days not cuz of social media,but we gave ourselves time to enjoy and forget studies for a short period of time..Just sharing Reply Mac_ Kenzee says: April 10, 2019 at 1:54 am Yo 😂😂 during the SAT there were people outside BLASTING rap music and my teacher’s phone went off and she was like “we don’t have to report that” I’m like huh??

Reply Memphis Stef says: April 10, 2019 at 11:30 pm Lmao some of y'all in the comments dont care if you go to college or think that college is a waist…. If I said that I'd be smacked in the back of the head by my mom and then I'd be told to study harder🤣🤣🤣😬😬😬😓😓😓😥😥😥😟😟😟😩😩😩😖😖😖😪😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 Reply Rhea Lee says: April 12, 2019 at 9:31 am After watching this, I feel that I'm very fortunate. Yeah the company here at my country look at the education level, but it is in 2nd place. Most of the employer here look at your previous work experience and your softskill. Reply Brandon Murphy says: April 13, 2019 at 2:49 pm This is why South Korea and other Asian countries have the best academic scores in the world. Ultimately, it’s beneficial to their community as a whole even though the teenagers are stressed out. Reply Oli Cry says: April 14, 2019 at 6:42 am I think here (not Korea) all of my friends and I just sleep 6 hours at day and that's normal for us, University is really hard, and we know that. But well, we can choose and we just love what we do and study maybe that's the difference Reply 게이바람 says: April 14, 2019 at 9:48 am Asian boss is handsome 😍 Reply Niqita Singh says: April 15, 2019 at 11:17 am It's the same in India except the flights changing routes and school hours till 11pm Reply 甯古 says: April 16, 2019 at 2:57 pm ok…it time to shut my computer and go studying Reply Jongho Park says: April 17, 2019 at 3:28 pm We dont study but we pretend to study by pressures. we just sit on a chair, pick a pen and never think. the ‘teachers’ teach everything they never know. Reply CC says: April 17, 2019 at 7:37 pm 4:09 lmao look at that huge dude in the background Reply Day Light says: April 17, 2019 at 7:54 pm Same situation. 10 hours daily from now on if I even have a chance of getting into the top university. Fml 😂 😂 Reply Sheena Examen says: April 19, 2019 at 1:40 pm In high school I used to sleep late because of reading novels and watching anime. But when I reached college there I realized that sleep is really important. Sleep enhances your long term memory. I sleep like 7-8 hrs every day and it really helped me to graduate in Pharmacy with a sharp mind. I think that it is also important to study smart while studying hard. And you dont just memorize you should also understand the concepts. Because exam is not copy and paste they often rearrange the questions. Reply Tasnim Ali says: April 20, 2019 at 2:57 pm I sleep for 7 hours a day and study 4 hours for my regular classes. So bad😐😅 Reply rueeru says: April 21, 2019 at 9:02 am Reminds me of how there are no Interviews from singapore.. I heard there it is quite similar. Someone said if you dont have a degree, you are a nobody in singapore. Maybe one day there will be asian boss in singapore?:D Reply shxx jin says: April 22, 2019 at 4:36 pm 5 to 6 hours sleep is not healthy it must be 7 hours Reply im taeha says: April 25, 2019 at 1:07 pm 6hours sleep is insane and it doesnt help us at all Reply sh00k : says: April 25, 2019 at 2:21 pm a reality check for all korea boos Reply grace gain says: April 29, 2019 at 6:40 am They study to much.. But still they don't know how to speak in English..when I was in highschool..I only study when exams are coming..haha and I hate projects.. Reply Nehem Quiane says: April 30, 2019 at 5:02 am Sky Castle Reply Obito Uchiha says: May 1, 2019 at 4:55 pm lol in France highschool is a little bit difficult when you enter but after that you just kind of go by. Like, if we have a math exam in the next class then 1h ahead every student will study for the exam in the classroom while trying to not get caught by the teacher ! That way you can maintain decent grades, not good but not bad, and that's what most of us are aiming for lol. Also when we have an exam that we all consider too hard, no one will study and that way the average grade in the class will be very low and we can blame the subjects difficulty, saying that if no one had a good grade it means that the exam was way too hard. In uni it depends on your major, personally mine is very easy so I literally put no effort.

Reply susan says: May 18, 2019 at 12:09 pm Many people seem to be shocked that Korean students seem to get so little sleep, however I think this is not only common in Korea, most students in asia sleep late due to studies, as a student from Hong kong, I barely get 6 hours of sleep everyday Reply Bulut t says: May 21, 2019 at 6:24 pm Just like in Turkey Reply Pranjal VW says: May 23, 2019 at 11:47 am WTF, Sleeping for 6 hr a day… Its my power nap😶 Reply Silalahi Hylda says: June 8, 2019 at 11:47 am If i sleep 5-6 hours a day in my whole highschool life, i’d be dead.

What about just learn a very very marketable skill like web development, digital marketing and/or Accounting right after high school. And work as an independent contractor or work for small or startup company. Would you also be able to make a good living in Korea?And what about Blue collar work, like electrician, elevator repair, robotic repair ect. Do these people make a good living ? Reply Nur aliea says: June 26, 2019 at 3:44 pm I'm just burning midnight oil during exam and for final project..lol.the rest I'm just sleep like a bear I guess .4 hour sleep r u kidding me? Reply 박Kylie says: July 8, 2019 at 5:14 am Most of countries in Asia, especially here in Indonesia have the same education perspective like Korea. That's why, I used to get confused that Americans could drop out from college if they wanted to. In my society, if you go to university you will likely have a higher chance to get a good job. By the way, I sleep 5-6 hours a day, it's normal here lol Reply Suzy Ziette says: July 20, 2019 at 3:10 pm They seemed to study too hard ,struggle and even decide to suicide ,yet they cant speak even simple English with the foreigners. While English should be easy as they already put the efford to study for hours extremely.

We are pretty far behind ngl Reply Tay Rei says: August 27, 2019 at 8:46 pm Koreans need to learn more about life of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. Education is very important but is not an end all for living well. Balance will be the thing of the future. Reply Maria Teresa Jimenez says: September 30, 2019 at 4:24 pm To people saying this is crazy and school is not everything. You are right. The studying culture might sound crazy to you especially if you did not grow up in same way. School is also not everything, because when you graduate and had your first job or started your own business, you'll realise how easy it was to be in school. On the other hand, if you live in a place like Korea, the competition is real. Employers and business owners really look at your credentials and if you graduated in universities that are not known, it'll be harder for you. That's their hassle. So instead of saying their education system sucks and not right for kids, let us just respect and admire what they have. The reason why they value education like this way is deeply rooted to their history.Studying is not everything but it is really important. I am from the Philippines, and our education graduates are really low, out of 100 students only 1 or 2 will get a bachelor degree. So that's why it is hard for us to find a job that will pay enough for daily needs. That's why our country still belongs to those who have high poverty rates. But I still hope for our country and salute Koreans on how they value education. Reply Aditi Jori says: October 3, 2019 at 4:36 pm Now I understand why 3 idiots is really famous in South Korea.
