Only In Korea Podcast: Parking & Driving In The ROK

Chance & Travis discuss the recent appearance of the Parking Vigilantes of Korea website (http://PVK.website) that sells stickers to place on horribly parked cars.

The duo then share their experiences dealing with the ROK’s unsafe driving conditions while also highlighting statistical data that shows Korea has the worst driving among developed nations.


Gangpul Cartoon Alley

Seoul, South Korea — If we ask about a mural village in Seoul, many would suggest and are familiar with Ihwa Mural Village in Hyehwa. But, in a quiet neighborhood of 성안 (Seong-an) in 강동구 (Gangdong) district, which literally means East of the Han River, a colorful village also exists. The 50 paintings are actually from a famous Korean webcomic artist named 강풀 (Gang Pul).

Due to time constraint, I only got to see about 20+ artworks. Enjoy my snaps:

I love the part that friendship and camaraderie plays in Korean society, even well into old-age. This particular band of merry men were sat enjoying the crisp fall weather in Gwangju's Pureungil Park.

Under the Sea

Two women take an after-hours stroll through Tongyeong's Undersea Tunnel, Gyeongsangnam-do.

The tunnel was constructed during Japanese occupation of Korea in 1932, and was Asia's first submarine tunnel, connecting the city of Chungmu to Mireuk Island. Nowadays, a series of bridges also link the island to the mainland, and so the tunnel has been pedestrianised.
