This past Saturday I had the opportunity to travel to Gyeongju with some passionate history students from Dong-A University in Busan.  

What I Have Learned from Marrying a Korean

The other night, I was asking my husband if he remembers “our song”. He said he remembers it, but he doesn’t know the lyrics, so I sang it to him. When I was singing the chorus, he remembered some lines and sang some parts, though most of the time he was humming. We were singing “our song” in the car, sometimes chuckling when one of us was out of tune.

Oxtail Extravaganza; Love Against the Odds

This past week was the start of the deadline period at the magazine, which is, to put it mildly, not my favorite time of the month.

More on South Korean ‘Anti-Japanism’ and the Intra-Korean Legitimacy Contest

The challenge to South Korea this picture represents is my argument for where South Korea’s extraordinary national hang-up about Japan comes from.

Last month, I wrote about ‘anti-Japanism’ in South Korea. I tried to make an argument for why I thought it went beyond just what Japan did in the colonial period. Remember that North Korea does not villainize Japan the way South Korea does.

Beauty Review: Covered in Bees!

It's been almost a year since I did any beauty reviews (it's because I became ugly!) and since the last thing I wrote about was the Nature Republic Bee Venom Cream, I figured I'd continue that theme with the Nature Republic Bee Venom Cleansing Foam that I've been using recently, since it's lovely and smells like...well I can't quite decide what it smells like but I love it.
