My younger daughter (mini-Madge) would have given her eye-teeth to teach English in South Korea. (My friend's daughter did it, without sacrificing any body part, as far as I'm aware.) Mini-Madge is currently studying in Singapore.
My elder daughter (midi-Madge) is studying Games Art/Design; I wouldn't be a bit surprised if she is interested in the same music that you listen to.
