Nothing's Really Real Podcast: (Ep 49) Cult Survivor

Nothing's Really Real is a podcast based out of Busan, South Korea.

Amy Rose writes: 

“I was raised in a cult. You might be imagining white robes, chanting, pentagrams, prayer circles, meditating, group singing, forced sterilization, or even dixie cups of kool-aid. You'd be right about most of it ...”

Amy joins me on the podcast to tell her fascinating story, and answer as many questions as I could throw at her.

Korean Politeness Levels (반말, 존댓말, 높임말) | Live Class Abridged

This is a shorter version of a much longer live stream explaining politeness levels. Although not everything taught in the live stream is present here (for time), it's still an overview of the bulk of what was gone over. Let me know if I missed anything!

The post Korean Politeness Levels (반말, 존댓말, 높임말) | Live Class Abridged appeared first on Learn Korean with GO! Billy Korean.

The South Korean Right in the Wilderness, part 1: Modernizing the Liberty Korea Party




This is a re-post of an essay I wrote for the Korean Dong-A Daily newspaper.

So exactly no one in the English-speaking cares much about this topic. Everyone wants to talk about Trump and Kim and North Korean nuclear weapons. I get it.


Nothing's Really Real Podcast: (Ep 50) The Konner Blunt Report

Nothing's Really Real is a podcast based out of Busan, South Korea, where we talk about art, music, comedy ... and anything else.

Episode 50. My guest is Konner Blunt. He is the host of his own podcast based out of Daegu, The Blunt Report.

Surprisingly, we hardly spend any time talking about podcasting, and end up having a really positive and flowing conversation about death, debating people online, our significance in the universe, and worry ... among other things.


Flickr’s ReBirth

Flickr for me was my starting point as a photographer. It was way way back in 2006 when I first started uploading my photos and I really haven’t stopped. Flickr has served me as a backup and as a portfolio for many years. Flickr was always a place for photography and photos… good or bad.

Gampo

I watched flickr go through some low times and slowly slide into obscurity. Sites like 500px and instagram came in and pushed Flickr further away to the point were few were using it and the groups were dead. Yet, flickr somehow stuck around. It got handed off to different people who promised to make it better or at least “what it was” and then nothing happened.


The Rise of Korean Dramas

Often when the general public discusses Korean popular culture, and the Hallyu Wave that rose from it, they are usually talking about K-pop front, right, and center. But did you know that, long before K-pop was popular among listeners and fans outside of Korea, it was Korean dramas that were breaking bank abroad? Among these Korean dramas was, most notably, Winter Sonata. This drama was a massive hit among the generation before us.

Nothing's Really Real Podcast: (Ep 42) Babopalooza

Nothing's Really Real is a podcast based out of Busan, South Korea.

(Episode 42) Babopalooza was a sketch comedy show held on December 1st and 2nd of 2006 in Busan, South Korea. A little over a week later, nine of the foreign performers began being arrested, interrogated and in some cases drug tested by the International Crime Division of the Korean police force.


What You Need To Know About Korean Men’s Fashion

These days, Korean men are no longer known only as the ‘feminine’ singers and dancers of a boy group. Nor do they only exist as the emotionally twisted yet charming lead of a Korean drama, the one who will sweep the heroine off their feet. Instead, those who have visited South Korea, especially the capital of Seoul, are now gushing over the everyday guys seen on the streets. What might be about them that’s capturing the attention of people watchers everywhere? The simple answer is: the Korean men’s fashion.
