Another one of the young and beautiful passes away at a very young age. More pics of this South Korean actress and former model follow. Continue reading
However, someone asked recently to identify the pictures in some of the popular pics on my blog which I didn’t label. In particular, this post had a picture in it that didn’t have it labeled. Well, I found out the two gals in the picture turned out to be two gals from the old Korean pop girl band Jewelry which I think one of the two girls left (Suh In-young). The other one in the photo which I just learned is named Kim Eun Jung I’m thinking is quite attractive. Continue reading
Bought the following motorcycle on the 12th of April. http://www.suzukicycles.org/GSX-series/GSX400-Impulse.shtml – RED 1994 Model. I’ve had a few problems, but all worth the education it’s taught me.
Right after buying it from this nice South African guy named Keren, I had starter problems. We thought it might be the extra flashing blue lights strung up the back of the bike — maybe sucking a bit of the battery before start up. So, I took those off.
This was after I bought a brand new battery from this guy named “Joon” that was instrumental in helping me get the bike. He thought it was in good shape and at the time, I had nobody who knew a lot about motorcycles except Dan (one of our Busanjin teachers) and fellow Kyopo. Dan introduced me to Joon who’s a buddy of Dan’s. Supposedly though the battery’s a cheap one according to a new bike shop I’ve been using. The new bike shop said the 40,000 won or so I paid to get this battery was on the cheap end and that I needed to buy a 60,000 won battery or so. I could believe him because he said I didn’t need to buy the better one yet since I should use this poor battery first.
All in all, in the month plus I’ve owned the bike (after purchasing it on 4/12), I’ve:
I guess we’ll have to see what happens for the rest of the year with this decision. I’ve started to look into “what the next bike” may be and some of the candidates are:
**By the way, the purpose of this post is mostly to help me keep track of what I’ve done on it for maintenance and the costs involved (in case any of you are interested in the costs of motorbike upkeep)
I didn’t really like her most recent album in terms of music, but this is possibly the most “catchy” of the songs…and my gosh, but I can’t ignore the “man” in me…Lee Hyori is definitely the most sexy Korean woman I know. Anyone better? I can’t say “mentally” she is, but…
Possibly the cure to all the world’s problems.
In Korea, this one word makes or breaks peoples’ lives. Without these, many go homeless. With these, many have a roof over their head. For many foreigners or expatriates who date Korean women, it’s our biggest hurdle in getting to know them. However, after we get to know them, our bonds can be tighter than superglue with the Korean women we might love. Continue reading
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
It’s not often you can boast about being proud of what you do. Lately, I feel like I am definitely maturing and being less afraid of saying what “should be said.” At times, you back down since you know conflict is not going to help a situation get better. In other times, you know that conflict is necessary or that you must simply say what’s on your mind so that later more abuse or problems will fail to occur. In the past month or so, I’ve been speaking my mind regardless of the outcome. I think it through before doing so & in those times where I know conflict will result, I move forward…
The other night, we were at a dinner for one of the branches that we manage. It’s our flagship branch since it’s the largest one in our 15 individual schools. We went to a bar after dinner and sat around chatting for a bit. In the middle of talking with my coworker Jason (who I think is a great guy, by the way), we notice an older man standing up and yelling at an older lady. They are in their 40’s, I’m thinking or at least he is. She’s possibly in her mid 30’s. It’s hard to say. Continue reading
A reader of the blog asked me if I wouldn’t mind forwarding the following survey to my Korean acquaintences. What better way to invite them to fill out the survey than post it here?! So, if you wouldn’t mind obliging this nice young student for a school project, I’m sure she would be appreciative. It’s about gender equality. Couldn’t find the direct translation from English to Korean on the term “gender equality”, but the Ministry of Gender Equality is called the “여성부.”
She writes: Continue reading
Made up of 9 girls (as of January 2009), Girls’ Generation aka “So Nyeo Shi Dae” (also in China recognized as Shaonü Shidai) includes Yoona (윤아, 林允儿), Tiffany (티파니, 黄美英, 蒂芙尼), Yuri (유리, 权侑莉), Hyoyeon (효연, 金孝渊), Sooyoung (수영, 崔秀英), Seohyun (서현, 徐贤), Taeyeon (태연,金泰妍), Jessica (제시카, 郑秀妍, 杰西卡) and Sunny (써니, 李顺圭, 桑尼). All the Girls’ Generation members are between 17 and 19 years of age. The Korean pop girl group is managed by SM Entertainment. SM once managed H.O.T., S.E.S., and Shinhwa, but still manages BoA, Super Junior and x-H.O.T. member Kangta. Continue reading
A cute little Korean drama from 2006 had 167 episodes. It’s a South Korean television drama/romantic comedy broadcast by KBS from 2006 to early 2007. The drama won many awards at 2006 KBS Drama Acting Awards. Koo plays a young “village girl” from Yanbian, China who goes to Korea to get married, but her husband-to-be died when she was about to marry him. The drama talks about how she managed to pass through all the sufferings and eventually find true love.
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
Going on my 3rd here at The Real South Korea…
My goal was to write about my life here in the Land of the Morning Calm and to help others if possible, but these are what bring people to my blog:

Dong Won Kang stars with Na-yeong Lee as the female lead in this Korean 2006 film titled Urideul-ui haengbok-han shigan in Korean about forgiving. Na yeong Lee’s character has a secret that is revealed late in the movie that makes her hate her mom & life. This pain and hatred helps her relate with Kang Dong Won’s (the surnames are usually first in Korea) character who is painfully struggling with a crime he was accused of committing. I’ve seen some good Korean flicks lately … so this doesn’t rank up there as the best, but worth a watch.
