Korean News, Fan Death, Rain the Ninja, iPhone, events food and more - 떡볶이

Welcome to our new members! This is an update of Korean news, language, events, and more. Can you believe it's December already!?

First - local upcoming events and posted notes:

Korean Culture Current Events & News

Korean Story Corner

Fan Death - I stumbled on what has to be the longest conversation on fan death, minutes after it was posted (when there were only 5 or so responses). With hundreds of comments, it of course can't answer the eternal question of whether or not there is really death by fan. The conversation link: "Are there any Koreans here who believe in fan death? (The idea that sleeping next to a fan will kill you)"

Tip Of The Day: To improve the color of kimchi (CARTOON)

Korean Language Corner: Some articles to help beginners and long-time students with their Korean language.

* Beginner: The Korea Times has a regular feature that I've followed for a while. It's a cartoon language focusing on one aspect of the Korean-English language. If you're learning English, or learning Korean, it is useful. Starting off with "Places To Eat In Korea", the latest cartoons are found here:

* Intermediate + higher: Dual-language articles are online on many sites. The Joongang Daily/ site has them, including these:
>The secret to happiness
>Korean convicted of racism for 1st time

Korean Food Focus: Hot and spicy rice cake - dduk bokki - video & ingredients - and 떡볶이 photo & recipe.

If you have a news item, event, or other tidbit to pass along, reply to this email. Have a great week!
