The Korea File ep88: Cuisine, Demographics and New Gendered Realities in South Korea

Listen to "Cuisine, Demographics and New Gendered Realities in South Korea" on Spreaker.

On episode 88 of The Korea File podcast, cultural and culinary anthropologist Jennifer Flinn joins host Andre Goulet to explain how factors like the decline in multi-generational family living, the increasing age when Koreans first get married and the globalization and urbanization of South Korea are altering traditional assumptions about


Trump and Moon are the most Dovish Presidents Ever on N Korea, and Kim will Still Give Them Nothing




This is a repost of an essay I wrote earlier this month for The National Interest. My argument is that Kim Jong Un is passing up his best chance for a deal for years, maybe decades, to come. Both Moon and Trump are extremely unusual, and favorable, counterparties for the North.


Fall Photography!

I love fall. I love the temperature. I love the fact that the sun rises and sets at a reasonable time. I love the changing of the leaves and the cool morning air. I also thankfully live in a country that also doesn’t know what a pumpkin spice latte is either!

With that being said, What’s the plan for this year? It is almost halloween and I have yet to head out and get those signature dead leaf shots. Well truth be told, peak season doesn’t hit my part of South Korea until this weekend. So I will be gearing up tomorrow for some adventures. Here is a basic idea of what I am going for this year.

Does Trump Want to Withdraw from South Korea if He’s Re-Elected?

72 Hours in Tokyo with the Canon EOS R

With the announcement that Canon’s pro level mirrorless would be coming out at some point in the next year around the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo, I couldn’t wait any longer. I gave in and bought the EOS R. I resisted the urge to pick up the 5D mk IV and picked up a drone last year as I felt that I could squeeze a few more years out on my 5D mk III. With a rebate and all the discounts that come along with shopping on Korean duty-free sites, I managed to snag the camera for close to $800 off the original price.


DATAFL - What sorts of English teachers do you think schools are looking for? Data from thousands of job ads (in Asia) reveals the facts

I wrote about this previously in an older blog post, but I decided to update it and make it a little more visually appealing by adding some graphs to the information.

what employers (ESL schools) in Asia want

I looked on various sites in Taiwan, Korea, China and Japan at the job advertisements for English teachers and the keywords they were using and came up with this.
