Honest confession: Sometimes I get drunk. Really drunk. I am not one to pass out in the streets or go home with cute boys. Nope. Instead, I steal posters and buy junk food at the local convenience store. Then, I sit at home with my newly acquired decor and snacks, so I can message my friends all over the world. I feel like I should hash tag this post as “boring,” but I don’t care; I’m awesome.

Soju Haiku

Are more than one haiku called haiki? I don’t think so, but I’m too drunk on soju to really care. Imo, another bottle, please! And you might want a few, too, before reading my haiku. (Is more than one bottle of soju called soji?)

For anyone who isn’t familiar with the term used in this comic, it’s from a very well known quote that goes a little something like this: “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”

It basically means that when you’re in an unfamiliar setting, act like those around you. I’m not entirely sure if there’s a saying in Korean that’s similar to that.

I think it’s safe to assume that it was over a woman, as there was a very angry looking lady sitting by the window he was yelling towards.

Oh Korean drama. I dislike you on and off the screen.

Daily dose of Korean news

From across the K-blogosphere comes news, views, and other information you might wish to intake.

The Joongang Daily (HT to ROKDrop for first post) tells us about how much police time is spent on drunk people:

58 police precincts handled 54,925 cases of drunk pedestrians between January
and May, or some 364 cases per day. Handling drunks can take up a third of the
task of an average officer. Police precincts that handle Busan’s most crowded
and busy areas - Seomyeon, Yeonil, Jeonpo - complain that there are so many
drunks that they completely clog up their daily tasks.

The Busan police department estimates that the nation’s police spends at
