In Response To: Help! I Look Asian and Intend to Teach in Korea (Norell Leung)

Unfortunately, their country their laws and individual schools are allowed to decide on employing teachers based in part on how effective they'd be in advertising the school with photos that clearly show a foreign teacher, etc....
But yes, I have known many Asian-looking teachers in Korea and other Asian countries. You simply have to apply for 10 or 20 times more positions before you get offered on. ESLcafe has a Korea-specific forum which will have more advice and experience on getting actual jobs; this forum here is mostly or teacher training.
