dear friends. there is something you may not know about korea, something you may find surprising. for some of you, this very thing may well make you (you know who you are) want to drop everything to move here in search of fame and fortune.
you see, in korea, you can get paid to play video games.
you can get paid lots of money.
you can become a nationally recognized celebrity worthy of photo spreads in Tiger Beat-esque publications for being a video game superstar, like the studly and possibly still pre-pubescent “bisu.”
all you have to do is be really, really exceptionally good at starcraft, a game everyone and their brother thought was awesome… in 1998.
