learn to be called samonim

What to do when despite of doing one's utmost to dress up and look smart one is still addressed ajumôni instead of the desired samonim? This fault in one's personal bearing or competitiveness (kyônjaengnyôk) among others like not landing a job, not finding a girlfriend, and getting refused in marriage partner introductions (sôn or massôn) is what can be improved with the help of a personal trainer, or "adult extracurricular tutoring" which is a clumsy rendering of the Korean sôngin kwaoe (story in Chosun Ilbo).

Wonder what they teach in order to be addressed samonim? Some English vocabulary, haughtiness, restraint in expression of feelings?
