Anyone in South Korea? Visiting?

Sent on: Monday, August 23, 2010 10:30 PM
Greetings, all!

Some of you may remember me, I was somewhat active with the group during[masked] as one of the assistant organizers.

As Paul mentioned in his email, I am now in South Korea. I should be here for at least a few years. I have promised myself that I won't leave until I finish writing a book. Many books never get written or published so I could be here until I die...

If you are in South Korea then send me an email so we can establish contact. We'd like to eventually set up a meeting, perhaps have a video call or something else with the Seoul mother chapter. Of course, I am a caveman when it comes to technology so don't be shy if you've got skills.

This isn't just for people who are living here now. If you plan on visiting then please let me know in advance, we can try to schedule a meetup around your visit.

Subject: [Korean-Waves] Korean Waves update: Concert (��� ������), Nightlife (Fatback), Honey Pig ��� ������, Zoo, and more

Hello, ��������������� (Annyong haseyo),
Welcome to the new members!  This update is for everyone....
What's Korean Waves?  Besides a new name for the group, it's based on the "Hallyu" (Korean Wave - ������) concept of Korean culture washing over the world like a wave.  Besides a name change, we have more events, an upcoming iPhone app (already developed), and more new stuff. 
We even have a Seoul "branch" office for Korean Waves, which Casey has volunteered to lead events!  If you are in Seoul, let Casey know.  We are planning a web-cast event so we can "visit" Seoul live, via webcam.
Due to a technical issue, the POW! (Party of the Week) event wasn't announced, so here it is:
  • Korean Waves Nighttime! Fatback Attacks Nightlife Event - we join the monthly Fatback party at Bohemian Caverns, which the Washingtonian has called "the highest energy dance party in DC." - This Saturday at 9pm - RSVP 

And we have some upcoming events to announce:
Learning Korean:
Korean Food:
 TaKorean, the newest Truck to Hit the Streets ( - home created Korean food sold via a truck and served in a taco!  They also pledge to donate some of their sales to charity.
Have a great week!
