Wednesday, June 3


Last week was pretty eventful in Korea - the former president comitted suicide and the North fired five short-range missiles into the Yellow Sea and tested a nuclear weapon (successfully), after which they announced their withdrawal from the armistice that ended the Korean war and that the inspection of any of their ships would be considered an act of war. But Koreans say fuck it. Five of the ten most-read internet articles on Naver (Korean google) last week were about Park Ji-Sung, the South Korean who plays for Manchester United and by all accounts is completely mediocre, and though there are several articles in the list about President Roh's suicide, completely missing is an article about the nuclear test, missile launches or the threats of war.
