What Does UDT Stand For?

Many Singles Inferno fans have been trying to figure out what the acronym UDT stands for after Kim Jin-young mentioned his military background on the hit Netflix dating show. It turns out that he was a member of the Republic of Korea Navy Special Warfare Flotilla (WARFLOT), which is essentially the Korean version of the US SEALs.

During the Korean War, the elite frogmen cleared obstacles and gathered intel before amphibious landings in the Pacific Theater and on Normandy beaches. They were also instrumental in locating and returning downed pilots and sailors to the shore, and their legacy lives on in today’s elite Navy SEAL teams who specialize in direct action missions and underwater unconventional warfare tactics that trace back to their Korean War experiences.

A recently released video from the Korean frogmen shows their fearsome knife training. From unison drills to one-on-one duels, these blade fighters demonstrate an awe-inducing level of skill that’s both blindingly fast and ingenious in complexity.

For those thinking of moving to Korea to teach English, the average salary for a native English speaker is 2 – 3 million KRW per month. The salary is determined by the hagwon owner based on negotiations, experience and qualifications. Teachers are usually expected to work at least 120 teaching hours a month. The working hours are from 1 pm - 9pm. In addition to the salary, teachers receive 7-10 paid holidays including all national holidays. Non-native English speakers are not eligible to teach in South Korea as a foreign teacher without a visa. Only native English speakers who hold a passport from the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa are eligible for a sponsored E2 visa.
