“Almot” is a Korean slang to describe people who do not know something very well. This word is derived from professional gamer Heo Young-moo. When some people criticized him because of his poor game performances, he said “For those who do not know what games are, come here and try them for yourselves!” Since then we can find the expression "almot" in every field. The problem is that people use this expression to exclude others who do not know something or criticize them. When a person is perceived to not know something, he or she can no longer talk about it. This word has become popular because ignorance is the object of criticism in Korean society. Koreans are often ashamed of not knowing. Even when they study at school, students do not ask questions about what they don’t understand because it suggests that they are not keeping up with class. It is because an attitude off being ashamed of not knowing is rampant in Korea. For example, even when a student asks a question with courage, they hear the words "Don't you know that?" from their teachers. Another example could be when a student is approached by their peers, who tell them “The class ran overtime because of your questions.” They are being criticized for not knowing. However, humans are not born with complete knowledge. From the moment of birth, no one can know all of history or solve math problems. Even if you know one area better than others, you cannot have complete and perfect knowledge in every field. In other words, everyone has some areas that they do not know well. Also, learning exists because we are born to learn the things that we do not know. It can be not quite the thing for a person who knows something well to blame or disparage others who do not know something; therefore, thinking of themselves as superior than others. Instead, you need an attitude that helps people who do not know something that you do. Not knowing cannot be a sin itself. However, the attitudes of acting as if you know and not even trying to learn can be a sin. The attitude of acknowledging and admitting of not knowing and trying to learn is necessary. Even though we say "knowing is power", unknowing is not a sin. Was there ever a moment that you did not ask any questions because you do not want to look ignorant. Was there ever a time that you made fun of people do not know what you know well, and because of this you called them a “almot”. Ignorance should never be a target of criticism.< 저작권자 © 중앙헤럴드 무단전재 및 재배포금지 >
