Hello everyone. My name is Jason Ham and I am currently teaching English at Cathoic University. There are three campuses; I teach at Seongsim Campus in Bucheon. I've been teaching in Korea for 14 years--6 at OeDae Foreign Language Institute, 4 at Inha University, and 5 at Catholic. I live in Incheon with my wife (from Wando, Korea) and three sons.

My interests include biking, indoor rowing, playing screen golf, and going online. I usually bike to work when I can and when the weather is nice. If you're interested in biking around Korea, just let me know. Whenever I have 2-3 days off in a row, I generally plan a long bike/travel adventure. This April, I'm planning on riding to Seokcho with The Dongbu MTB Club--about 260 kilmeters. I usually ride alone, but this time I'm going to meet some Korean bikers and go together.

This semester I am really excited to interact with everyone on this public forum. James (from HUFS) is a great friend and wonderful colleague. I'm really happy he has this cool site up and is letting us post together with his users this semseter. I look forward to reading your posts, exchanging ideas, and making new friends. See you on the forum! :-)

PS--Congrats on your new book, James--I got it and it looks awesome--great work!

Thank you Jason! My new claims to fame are an article in the Korea Times yesterday and an interview I'll be doing on TBS This Morning on Monday. It won't be 15 minutes but they do say fame is fleeting.

Nice. If you can, save a copy of the Times article. I'd like to see it. If you happen to get a video of yourself on TV talking about the book, you should put it up on Facebook. I'll be a fan. How long did the whole process take from start to finish?

Sure, 'Jason' is fine with me. I ride a motor-scooter from time to time, but I usually ride my bicycle when the weather is nice. I own a Daelim Citi-Ace 110cc. I've only been riding it for a couple of years or so. And yes, your reply is a legitimate reply that will count toward your homework score. :) Do you ride motorcycles?

Writing the book took a while but publishing it also took some time. And apparently it's normal in Korea for authors to edit their own work - editing the book took forever. The radio interview was on TV but I don't have a video. I do have the audio file which I might throw up on facebook.
