a Spunky Korean

A Korean male always having a passion for active living, and enjoying getting his butt kicked in the gym and a WEST COAST lover, a graduate with a BA in Sociology. Also much into some other sectors like social media, IT and photography. I would like my blog to be a connection between my homeland, S. Korea and Canada that was my second home for years and also to be a connection to the people, places, and things for which I will always have a tremendous amount of affection.

두려움을 넘어서는 최선의 방법은 자신이 감추고 싶은 그 두려움을 사람들과 공유하는거야.

 척. 척. 척만 하다간 너를 더 다치게 할수 있어..

너의 두려움을 사람들과  공유하는것이야말로 너를 자유롭게 할수 있는거다.

More than 500 students from the Busan University of Foreign Studies were enjoying a freshman orientation party at the Kolon Corp.-owned Mauna Ocean Resort in Gyeongju Monday night when the roof suddenly gave way, killing 10 and injuring more than 100.

Yonhap reports that local authorities believe heavy snow on the roof may have caused the collapse. That’s the sort of lame excuse you used to hear all the time during the 1990s when horrifying accidents occurred in South Korea with sickening regularity.

A Kolon spokesman tells Bloomberg that the company conducts its own safety checks of the resort because it isn’t subject to government inspections. Gee, you don’t say.

That is a joke!!

“Ideology never says: I am ideological. It is necessary to be outside ideology, i.e. in scientific knowledge, to be able to say: I am in ideology (a quite exceptional case) or (the general case): I was in ideology. As is well known, the accusation of being in ideology only applies to others, never to oneself (unless one is really a Spinozist or a Marxist, which, in this matter, is to be exactly the same thing)." - Louis Althusser

Lovely!!!!!

Korean foods are definitely different from foods elsewhere in the world, of course!! I always point out that the one attribute which stands out the most in Korean dishes is spiciness. Especially for those who are sick and tired of blowing their running noses with squeaking noise the spicy dishes often dominate our table conversations in winter. One on your left side is a spicy beef stew and the other one is called the JjamBbong, Korean Chinese style spicy noodle stew. 

Go check them out if you are around any Korea towns in your country. I am sure you will get a kick out of Korean chilies!!!! 

Just survived from my unusually terrible flu. This was one of the most horrible one that I have ever had in my life. In fact, I am telling you I am a type of person who never ever wants to go to a medical clinic or a hospital, and rather tries to be just calm down and laid himself down on a bed to wait for the body to heal itself no matter how long it would take. It is because of the fact that I have…a needle phobia. yeah.. I do… I have to admit that now. In Korea I am pretty sure if you get sick and then go to a medical clinic, I am 100% sure that you will be half naked(?) by a A-zum-ma(mature) nurse and get a shot somewhere on your butt hard before you get your prescription. I just hate that. People here in Korea are very much obsessed with the one shot solution. They keep praising having one shot in your buttock can make you away from those sick flu viruses…    

Whenever my mom and wife see me sink exhausted and look haggard even, they say “You fool, you are just keeping your flu worse, One flu shot can finish your suffering!”, “How come you are even more scared of going to a hospital than your 5 year old nephew is? “please Grow up!”

Yeah… anyway..who cares anymore?! I am healthy now..I am telling you I alright now.. I am ok.. I am normal!! I am r..ea…ll….y…. ok!! ….o…k…o…..k…. .. ..o.. ………………k…..

Happy New year, everybody. I wish your new year’s resolutions would be all accomplished! Way to go, year of 2014!!!!
