I only found this article
, but I don't have any personal experience on the subject. it seems to imply, though, that being older is actually preferable to being young. I've only ever heard of middle aged men in Japan
being mocked for their "oyaji- smell".

I really don't know why students' behaviour is being described as "good" or "bad" here. maybe rules are applied more strictly in Korea. You have to bow to the teacher etc. But apart from that it really depends on the individual student's personality whether the behaviour could be describes as good or bad. Maybe a teacher who is use to pupils who were trimmed to be polite would be shocked at the casualty of European students, but if they are friendly and willing to learn that's what matters.
