Letter from Korea, May 2012.

Dear Ireland

I feel obliged to offer an apology for a lack of social commentary on life in Korea. Being Irish, I complain all the time, even when things are going well. If you were to sit with me for a relatively short period of time, I would undoubtedly complain about plenty of things I can do nothing about. It’s kind of an old-man syndrome I suppose.

The thing is, complaining about life in Korea doesn’t interest me as much anymore. Well, at least complaining about it on the internet and pointing out all the failings and the misery and normality of living here doesn’t interest me much. I suppose it’s just not productive. It doesn’t make my life any better, and while I’d love to attract the swathes of readers across the waeg readership who are itching for scandal and tales of depravity and inadequacy, I’m pretty to keep to myself these days. You see, it’s not just Irish people who like to complain all the time about things they can do nothing about.

K-bloggers and writers of Korea, unite!

If you are a fellow K-blogger or writer about Korea, a number of the biggest K-bloggers are inviting you to a new community for K-bloggers and writers. Any and all welcome, whether you started your first blog last week or are still tinkering with the finer points of Wordpress.

Check out the Facebook group as the central hub for the time being.

EDIT 11:32PM September 8, 2009 - The event has been created in Facebook - this Sunday the 13th, 2pm - be there or be square :) We'll be meeting in the courtyard behind Tomatillo in Jongno, Jonggak Station, exit 6.
