- UPDATE: Korea is reportedly thinking about sending peacekeepers to Haiti.
- Good-bye, the ajumma of yesteryear? “From leather jackets to thigh-hugging jeans, a drastic change in fashion is what’s leading today’s ajumma makeover. Ajumma have typically been portrayed as pushy and brave women who dash for seats on the subway or fight for bargain sales in a grocery store. But not anymore, at least for the emerging ajumma generation.” The humanity.
- “Made in Korea” democracy for export? Interesting interview with Korean Legislative Studies Institute president Youn Jung-suk.
- Korea is offering about US$10 million in aid to Haiti. Speaking of which, if the French would like to occupy Haiti, they’re more than welcome to it.
- Foreigners have trouble with online shopping in Korea, reports Ye Olde Chosun.
- That’s not the way to treat a stout.
- Saw “Moon” and “District 9” on Hana TV. Really liked both, even if there’s no way in hell a Korean would name a moon base “Sarang.”
- Somebody rediscovered Andong. I didn’t even know it was lost.
- Ladies-only bus stops, parking spaces and taxis? Seriously?
- Now these… these are some great photographs.
Is there a reason you chose to make the moon harvesting company a Korean American collaboration?
One reason for that is my girlfriend at time was Korean and the name of the base- Sarang- is Korean for love so that was me being a bit of a romantic. Korea also has one of the most developed robotics programs and it’s one of the nations you could accept would be involved in this technologically ambitious program..
Here’s the trailer:
Looks cool, although I’m sure “Solaris” wants its soundtrack back.
