“Hello!” said two smiling Korean girls (women/girls?) who were standing with flyers and clipboards. They asked us if we knew about an event that was being held at The War Memorial on Monday, August 15th. We didn’t, but it seemed like it was going to be a huge celebration by the way they were going on about it. I remember words like,

By Iwazaru with Marie Kulik

As 3WM continues to investigate the case of Pvt. Andre Fisher, a significant quantity of information relating to the case cannot be written about within the public domain (by any entity operating with South Korean press credentials) whilst the case is pending.

By Leann Peters

An amazing event was held in Korea last weekend: the Ironman triathlon. If you’re not familiar with what that is, it’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile ride, and a 26.2 mile run.  Massive!

We wrote our thoughts down on paper and handed them in for a grade.

[UPDATE] According to Herald Media and the Joongang Daily the assailant said to the police that there was some confusion and that he thought the 61-year-old man, a Mr. Seon, was demeaning black people. The Joongang quotes the police saying, “The suspect said that he felt humiliated by Seon’s words, and it really fired him up,” a Bundang Police official said. “He didn’t deny the assault, so we will charge him soon without detention.” In addition, the man said he’s willing to apologize to Mr. Seon.
