The Korean kids are obsessed with drawing on themselves, Kawi Bowi Bo (rock, scissors, paper) and the chicken game. It’s mainly the girls who draw on themselves, including their faces. A lot of the students are amazing artists.

Mo Chi Pa, is essentially rock, scissor, paper, and this is how the kids settle things, for example when playing a game whoever wins goes first. The Koreans play this game differently, if back home you played scissors and the other person played rock you would lose straight away. In mo chi pa the person who played rock has an advantage over the other player, and plays another hand. This means they change their hand first to rock, paper or scissors and the other person is delayed by a second. Therefore if the person with the advantage changes to scissors and the other person doesn’t change their hand, the person with the advantage wins. The winners are always those with the advantage and when they play the same hand as what the other person plays. The tactical part is guessing what the advantage person will play, as if they play rock and you play paper you’re now in the advantage.

The chicken game is mainly what the boys play, they stand on one leg and bend the other and bring the opposite foot up so it rests on the thigh of the balancing leg. They then hop about and try and knock others out by making the others lose their balance and place the other foot on the floor.
