 Hello, ��������������� (Annyong haseyo),
 
This is the weekly group update... welcome to our new members!  Our next event is tomorrow night's Kollaboration DC kickoff (RSVP by 8am!).
 
 
Check out the pics & video from the last week: Honey Pig dinner, Noraebang - ��������� - at Da-in (did over 30 of us fit into one norae-bang?), and the National Zoo (& Mandu restaurant)... the video of after-zoo dinner at Mandu by Victor Geem (and his picnic video is here from our summer picnic in Georgetown).
 
 
In one week is the huge KORUS Chusok (������) Festival in Annandale.  Here is some of the news and information about it:
  • Performers will be coming from Korea - and is was said that Jinjo Crew and Hong 10 are appearing.
  • Usually there are thousands of people going to this event, which was created by KORUS House 8 years ago.
  • There is a need for volunteers - you can apply here (if you want to volunteer to be one of the lead volunteers, email: [address removed])
  • Talent competitions:
  • We have over 30 people going to this event on Saturday night, and the 2 Facebook events have 710 & 351 attendees.  We will meet for one hour near the event, and the walk over together (late people can find us).  Later we probably will go somewhere to relax more... wherever the "nighttime event crew" decides!
Some of our events coming up include...

They will be selling tickets to the Sep 25 Kollaboration concert!  Bring extra cash for your ticket.  They also will be giving our free merchandise to lucky guests tomorrow.

 See the new September Kollaboration preview video here on YouTube (some of us met Zhibo the producer of the video at a recent happy hour).  The video was shot in DC and has cool special effects... posters coming to life with singers who will be at the Lisner show, and more!
K-news & blogs:
English Language/ESL: Idiom (���������) of the week:
"fair game" - something that is open for discussion or criticism, for change, or for competition.  This may come from the idea that it is fair (okay) to compete in a game.  Examples:
  • "He thought no one would talk about his clothes, but what you wear to a White House dinner is fair game for gossip."
  • "My brother can't try to sell in New Jersey because there is already a sales person there, but Manhattan is fair game." (in this example, it means that it is okay to try to sell in Manhattan)
Korean Language/KSL: I found even more words that are "borrowed" and pronounced the same in Korean.
  • Stamina: don't have the hangul for this, but think "sta-mi-na" (can also be ������ and in Chinese maybe ������)
  • Candy: ������
If you have ideas for events, or are interested in helping out, please let us know.  Have a great weekend!
