Singapore – Betcha you don’t know who Education Minister Chan Chun Sing’s favourite Korean drama actor is.

Or how he deals with stress.  What he does in his free time. And whether he prefers cats or dogs.

Mr Chan revealed all (OK, I’m exaggerating) in an “Ask Me Anything” session video posted to Facebook.

When asked if he watched K-drama and who his favourite actor was, he responded:

“No, I don’t watch k-drama. I watch my family watching k-drama.”

OK, how does he deal with stress?

Stress? He advises going for a run. “Do something different or even take a nap, then come back to it; things will look a bit different.”

In the session uploaded on New Year’s Eve, he was also quizzed about his background, and the changes he anticipates in Singapore’s education system over the next 10 years.

Of his role as Education  Minister, he said that his favourite part of the job is visiting schools and talking to the children.

He also loves being able to “meet people and to help Singapore do better, and help Singaporeans improve their lives.”

As for what he does in his free time, he said: “I sleep, play with my kids, maybe go and do some exercise.”

and in case you are still wondering, Mr Chan is neither a cat nor dog person. He explains that when he was young, he was chased around by cats and dogs.

Now for the tough stuff: What changes does he anticipate in Singapore’s education system over the next 10 years. He gave this answer which is not really what the questioner was looking for:

“I hope our students will be much more self-directed in their learning.”

“The teachers will then be able to help build the confidence of our students and to bring out the best in our children by facilitating group learning.”

Last of all, who would he most like to thank for what they did in 2021?

“Because in 2020 and 2021, during the Covid situation, it has been very tough on all of us and without her support and taking care of the family, I won’t be able to focus on my job,” he said.
