Have you been to Japan lately? Korea is uber cool there. Korean singers, korean movies, korean actors, korean food, visiting korea. All of a sudden Korea dominates the landscape there.
Question: How were you in north korea?
Last time I was in Japan was 2009 - I can't believe how they have embraced K-Pop.... though that stuff is catchy. Girl's Generation are good eye candy, oh and the soju chick, Lee Hyo-ri......
I'd much rather live on Japanese food than Korean food for the rest of my life. I love shabu!
I went to North Korea through a day trip my Korean doctor friend told me about. It was about 300,000 won (30,000 yen?) for the day. Not one of those lame DMZ tours, we went into Gaesong city. It was like a ghost town. You can't go on the tours any more, so I was pretty happy I went.
