Katie Mulrennan is an Irish woman living in Seoul, South Korea, looking to make a living as an English teacher. Presumably, this is to support the raging drinking problem she must have, being Irish and all. Unfortunately for this liver-damaged Celt, Korean job agencies have grown wise to the wily ways of these red-haired, big-nosed, alcoholic leprechauns trying to live the easy life of teaching one of the world's hardest languages. That's what Katie found out, anyway, when she applied for an English instructor position through an agency listing on Craigslist and was told that "my client does not hire Irish people due to the alcoholism nature of your kind."
