How can I find him?

Recently I went back to my hometown to settle past problems. And one of the things I was going to do was apologize to my old highschool teacher for hurting him badly a few years ago. When I came back to my old school, I asked if he was available right now, and they said he had retired the year before. Is there any way I can find him? Or am I out of luck?

Dear minji,
Congratulation on your act of valor. This is something that not many of us dare to undertake. Awesome! As for your teacher, like the others said, the school or some of the teachers perhaps, have some sort of contact number. They may not give it to you. But I'm sure they can pass your contact info to him. and also, don't underestimate the Internet. search him everywhere; Facebook, .... even run a search on kakao talk and who knows.
But remember, it's the intention that really counts. One can only try to make up for the past mistakes. But sometimes it's just not possible. All you can do is to try your best. And don't forget, you hurt your teacher but you were a kid. He wouldn't hold that against you. And he has already played a very important role in you becoming who you are.
So ... cheers and good luck.

Try looking on the Internet to see if you can find his address or phone number. If not, maybe the school has his information. I don't think the school will give you his info, but you can write him a letter. Then, you can bring the letter to school and ask them to forward the letter to him.

Thanks. And when I was in his class I didn't come very often. So he visited my house worried, and I answered the door and he saw I had scars all over my wrists and a bottle of Soju (a type of alcohol) in my hands. He got down on his knees and started crying and praying for me. And me being as stupid as I was told him "Screw off old man, it's my life. I'll live it how I want!" Yep, I was a major jerk.
