Seoul’s Financial Hub Dream Outshined By Startup Success

With the recent wave of global financial groups leaving or downsizing their South Korean presence, government efforts to establish Seoul as one of Asia’s three financial hubs have clearly come up short.

Venting/Complaining

I’m angry. I’m full of piss and vinegar and I just want to vent it all over the place. But, I’m not going to. I’m going to accept what it is as what it is and allow it all to flow like a river, or something else flowy, and let everything end up as it does. Somewhere, be it happy or sad.
