I’ll have to be honest and admit that I’m not very familiar with what’s happening in Korea right now. Although I’m physically in Korea, I don’t access Korean news as much as I should. I decided to fix this by doing a post on it, because a) it’s makes me actually go out and read interesting articles about Korea, and b) while I’m at it I can share my findings with everyone else! Now, if you were having trouble keeping in touch with what’s happening in Korea, and if you read up to this point, it means that you’ll find the articles helpful in keeping you in-the-know.
