4 men who get paid to be beggars

  • Four men hired by the Korean Folk Village in Seoul have become the envy of many gen-y workers for having one of the easiest jobs in the world.
  • They are 'beggars' at the tourist attraction, which is a park built to showcase the way Koreans lived in the past.
  • Not only are these four men paid to act like they are homeless and jobless, they also get to keep any extra extra money or presents visitors give them.
  • According to Drama Fever, the four young men get to do whatever they wish during their time as 'beggars' in the park, which is popularly featured in Korean period dramas.
  • They get to sleep as and when they wish, beg for money from passers-by, or simply do absolutely nothing and they will still get their salary and be entitled to company benefits like everyone else does.
  • They even have the luxury of arguing with park visitors as this being argumentative is seen as one of the characteristics a folk village beggar should have.
  • While they might seem like good-for-nothings, three of the 'beggars' are actually hardworking college students while one of them is an actor.
  • One of them is known for his language skills, and is often seen pro-actively engaging with tourists in the park.
  • However, not all of the 'beggars' are so enthusiastic.
  • It was reported that the professional actor in the group prefers not to conduct any begging activities, choosing to relax as he claims he has a back problem.
