A good mix of different topics about North and South Korean news from different sources.
I am always looking for new interesting Korean news articles, so please post links below or on our facebook page. Please leave a comment so I know someone appreciates this collection.
1) Korea’s zealousness for unnecessary plastic surgery is once again getting international attention. This time, an attractive Korean newscaster cuts up her face to achieve a heart-shape look. In my opinion, which matters little here, the procedure just makes her look more alien.
2) A brief look at who will win for Korea in the Sochi Olympics.
3) Bear farms are dying in South Korea, but I am not sure if that is bad thing. What’s worse is the Korean taxpayers are compensating these debt-ridden farmers.
4) Body language is no longer an accepted form of communication if a foreigner wants to marry a Korean citizen.
5) The New York Times examines Korean culture by looking at the bathhouses.
6) It’s time Korea stops the unintentionally cringe comedy of blackface.
7) I tend not to believe every news story coming about of North Korea because a lot international media outlets overreport many exaggerated rumors, but this article about Dennis Rodman shitting in a hotel hallway is at least entertaining.
8) Another Korean government worker abuses his power to steal state funds. Government corruption is always ugly.
9) No phones, no make-up, no sex. Korean students go to a study boot camp for 11 months to improve their Korean SAT scores.
10) Divorce lawsuits shoot up after the New Year holiday 24%.
