Saw this from Time Magazine. I guess this is the South Korean Special Army soldiers demonstrating their martial arts skills during a rehearsal for the 61st anniversary of Armed Forces Day at Gyeryong military headquarters.

A beautiful gallery of photos of the 2009 Busan (Gwangali) Fireworks festival is here on Naver.com
Sometimes the city is spelled “Pusan” with a “P” and so if you want to look up more photos, video and other details about the Busan (aka Pusan) Fireworks Festival, you may need to type in “Pusan” with a “p,” just fyi. Nevertheless, this show was one of the most AMAZING shows you’ll ever get to witness. They did it up quite well here in Busan and it seems to get better each year.
Following are some great photos taken by John Bernardi and also a link to the actual show on Youtube. It was impressive… Continue reading
Just saw this on Yahoo News images. Just thought it was too cool (or what kids these days sometimes say is “kewl”) to not post.
Just a week ago, I was blogging about how the Slumdog Millionaire was literally driving crazy traffic to my blog. However, the traffic dropped heavily due to Google’s randomizing of their positioning of the Images used in their Google Images division/product. For a good week+, I was number 2 for phrases like “slumdog millionaire”, but as soon as google decided to rip it out of my search traffic clutches, I shot down a thousand views down to close to what I was averaging before all the crazy traffic.
Despite the drop, I did still manage to break a weekly record due to some of residual effects of the traffic. Continue reading
While I haven’t bought it yet, I’m definitely a click away from so…
Just saw the HP Mini 1001 yesterday when our “computer guy” brought one in. The notebook is literally almost as light as a thick ringed notebook and easily tuck’able under your arm. You can throw it in your backpack with ease and probably do a bit of work on the subway to work or pop it out almost anywhere.
Do you remember the exposed breast incident in 2004 during the Super Bowl XXXVIII where Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson were singing together and WHAM, Jackson’s right breast was exposed to 140 million viewers?
Well, I couldn’t help think about the incident when I again get lured into the middle of one of Korea’s main search sites by a somewhat revealing photo of Han Sungjoo. I honestly don’t know the gal that well. The post was definitely something about how she was chosen as one of the best dressers and potentially got some accolades at a recent Korean broadcasting awards show, but it was clear this guy was pointing out how the Korean entertainment star seems to like to expose most of her breasts in the photos. Rather, she wears very revealing dresses where they expose a majority of her breasts — well at least a majority of her left breast (maybe she wants to complement Jackson’s right breast?). I wouldn’t be surprised if one day she decides to basically expose herself like Jackson. Continue reading
One of the most popular posts on this blog is one about a dog with a large number of porcupine quills in it’s face. In honor of the post, I thought I would follow up with this post which shows a gallery full of the pictures of what will happen to a dog if it messes with a porcupine:
More than 50% of the time when looking at the top Korean websites like Naver.com and Daum.net, you will see some image of a top Korean female model. As stated before in previous posts, Korean women dress in a tantalizing manner. So, unless I’m totally devoid of my natural desires of a man, I can’t help but notice. Today, it happened again and my theory of Korean women being the sexiest dressers just continues to be buttressed.
My main coworker is freezing these days just like me. However, she is even colder because on most days, she’ll wear skirts to work regularly. Across the Korean peninsula, you see this constantly: Korean women still wear skirts in the most freezing temperatures. It never made sense to me from a comfort standpoint, but at the same time, the simple fact they wear high heels despite all the discomfort falls helps me understand a bit more, I guess… Continue reading
It’s a tradition for many to stay up late on the last day of 2008 to watch the first sunrise of the New Year on the beaches in Busan. On top of the exhaustion it would of created, it was colder than normal this time of year and many stayed home due to the weather. However, thanks to the power of the Internet and some person who decided to record the video of it, here you go…now we can all see it (and again, and again…)
There’s been a bit of debate on it’s health impacts: “Kimchi has a reputation of being a healthy food. The magazine Health named kimchi in its list of top five “World’s Healthiest Foods” for being rich in vitamins, aiding digestion, and even possibly retarding cancer growth. However, some research focused on high-sodium dietary dependence has found overconsumption of kimchi and doenjang ( hangul: 된장) to be a risk factor in gastric cancer (most likely due to nitrates and salt) while unfermented alliums and unfermented seafood were found to be protective factors. One oncological study found one type of kimchi to be a protective factor against gastric cancer while two other types of such high-sodium kimchi as dongchimi (hangul: 동치미) were risk factors.”
Get ready to gush out a cloud full of tears…this 2004 Korean Romance Film titled “Nae meorisokui jiwoogae” or directly translated into English “I have an eraser in my head” is one of the better sad love stories you’ll see. The International title though is “A Moment to Remember.” I’ve seen some tear jerkers from Korea, but this one definitely didn’t help my tear ducts stay full. The first of 26 segments follows.

…was searching for video footage of the Beijing Summer Olympics that took place this past Friday. However, my search has been somewhat fruitless. It looks like there was little recorded off of t.v. or the videos haven’t floated to the top yet of search engines. One very interesting discovery though were these images collected on Boston.comfrom the ceremonies. These images are spectacular. I’ve only provided 6 of them here. For more, go to the site here.

My recent experiment called “SEM Experiment: Are people online mostly interested about sexy Korean girls?” seems to prove that my previous post titled “Koreans are the sexiest dressers” was no fluke. Like the obscenity case in Flordia where Google data is being proven to show that people are quite addicted online to adult material, it’s being proved here on a micro-scale. Continue reading
One of the most popular posts on my blog is one about how I rant (real briefly) about Korean women being the sexiest dressers. For a period of time, I noticed how every younger Korean woman I saw was able to make their outfit look much sexier than needed. At work, the computer I was using at our previous offices defaulted to Daum.net as the home page & I couldn’t help notice on the site that they tried to ring in surfers with a random sexy Korean girl pic here or there.
