Hope you enjoy this collection of North and South Korean news. As usually, I selected various topics from various 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 has fast internet, but everyone agrees Korea is an internet dinosaur.
2) An interesting look at the growing phenomenon of the ‘Kimchi-Bitch’. The article from KoreaBang can be a little confusing, disregard the disorganization of the article and stick with it, there are some tidbits of insight.
3) If the Korean president starts using logic and criticism towards the current English education industry in Korea she is in for some trouble.
4) Korean lawmaker gets sentenced to 12 years in prison for scheming to take of the country.
5) A Korean basketball coach gets in trouble for taping his player’s mouth during a game to shut him up.
6) Korean students speak their mind to the world about Korean life and being imprisoned in the Korean Educational System.
7) The U.N. wants to punish Kim Jung-un for ‘crimes against humanity’. Sounds good to me.
8) Korean born short-track speed skater Viktor Ahn wins a Olympic gold medal for Korea…I mean Russia. Korea rejected him after he won 3 medals in 2006 forcing him to get support elsewhere.
9) There might be North-South Korea family reunions soon. Let’s hope so.
10) Believe it or not the population of Seoul is decreasing.
