In lieu of a post with actual content...
Korean soccer team beats soccer powerhouse Iran 2-0 in friendly match.
North Korea celebrates 60 years of Glorious Rule of Kim il Sun and his runty successor. Coincidently, 60 years is about how long we'll have wait for the Sunshine Policy to finally result in real changes in North. Patience my dear friends, patience.
Hangeul Day organizers give away Hangeul T-shirts in exchange for English language T-shirts. [If I owned a single shirt with English on it, I would have been there myself. Wonder if anyone traded in a 'Be the Reds" T-shirt...]
Korean airline flight attendants (presumably female)
Jeon Ji Hyeon at the premier of her latest movie (Daisy something or the other).
It's been five years since she's been in a movie that hasn't flopped miserably, leaving analysts to wonder just how long she can keep her career afloat based solely on the talent of her ass [I give it 3 more years]
On the left is the South Korean runner up in Miss Asia pageant, standing next to the 'winner.' I guess the cross-dressing drag queen look is in vogue these days.
And you didn't think there was anything more boring to watch than a Taekwondo match...
Apparently the embodiment of evil himself Apollo Ono won some ice skating competition in South Korea.
Strange, but I couldn't find any photo of the competition in the major Korean media outlets other than this one...

Jeon Ji Hyeon sure has a plush posterior...after this movies tanks maybe she'll do "hair nudes"--one can only hope...

I have shirts with bad English and if I'd known I would surely have traded them in as well.

Ahh, Korean Airlines, the only airline I have ever flown and actually felt in danger. I remember flying from Kimpo to Manila one time and not a single member of the cabin staff could speak word of English. The pilot handled the 747 like an F-4 and the landing was a three bouncer. On return to Korea my baggage was soaked from having been left on the tarmac and had a big rip in it. To top things off, the rep in the airport was an asshole and said "we don't care if foreigners fly us. We are for Koreans."
Talk about customer service!

There is no way that you'll convince that this is true.

Yup, it as on a flight from Manila to Seoul in August of 1999. These things happened a lot in Korea in the past. I have always found Asiana fine, though.

Maybe a post about some kid who was # 2000 should be in order.
