This is a re-post of my contribution to The National Interest’s recent essay round-up on the 70th anniversary of the Korean War. (My essay here; the full symposium here.)

Countries in Korean – The Complete List of Country Names

In this free lesson, we will cover the full list of countries in Korean.

This list of country names will be extremely valuable when learning the Korean language. If you plan to have conversations in Korean or just learn the language for fun, you will for sure be asked about where you are from.

The Floyd Protests: The South Korean Police are Far Less Belligerent than US Departments

This is a local repost of an essay I wrote for The National Interest. Like everyone else, watching the brutality of the US police in the last few weeks has been genuinely shocking. So this essay discusses how a police force with a reputation for brutality during a previous dictatorship came a long way.

This is based on this original tweet thread.

Innocent Korean Mistakes That Sound Rude | Korean FAQ

It's important to make mistakes when learning any language. You can't learn how to speak properly without first trying to speak.

But there are some mistakes you don't have to make, and should avoid making - mistakes that can sound rude.

I cover some of the most common rude mistakes that Korean learners make, such as using the 자 form, saying 너 or 당신, and more.

Buddha’s Birthday in Korea

This year was the first year in a long time that I didn’t head out to any temples for Buddha’s Birthday. This is by far one of my favorite times of the year but with the COVID-19 still lingering in Korea, many temples put special restrictions in place. I felt that because I am not a Buddhist, I would not complicate things by attending. I would let people worship in peace.

I also heard that many celebrations would be postponed until the end of May. I think with the drop in the amount of cases in Korea, this might be a better option for everyone. Recently, Korea had 0 local cases and only 4 quarantined at the airport. That is a huge milestone.

With that being said, I decided to stay away from the temples this year and just look back through the years to find some shots to share with you anyway. These may not be the best shots in world but the temples themselves have a unique place in my mind, anyway.
