Koreans and the Mandatory Military Service

Recently, I've been seeing a lot of articles about Yoo Seung Joon and a rumor about the possibility of him being let back into Korea.  It was no surprise that it turned out to be false.  I've also been reading the comments on these articles (not healthy, I know).  I can firmly say that most of the commentators have never spoken to a Korean person, males in particular.

No way in hell is Yoo Seung Joon going to ever be let back into the country.  He would (probably, I don't know the laws on military service on non-citizens serving) have to relinquish his US citizenship and then regain his Korean citizenship and then actually serve his time in the regular military or the marines, and not as a public service officer.  But seeing as he screwed himself over by promising to "honor Korea" by enlisting in the first place and then skipping town, I doubt they would let him come back on the promise he'd serve.

A lot of commentators are saying that Korea's laws are "backward", "stupid" and "why are Koreans still so upset about this?"  First of all, Korea is relatively small and still technically at war with North Korea.  They have only a cease fire agreement and apparently North Korea is very flippant about whether they will continue it or not.

It's 2014 and I feel we should have a contest.  :)

We're almost at 100,000 views and I think we can make it!
Currently we're at about 93,000, so when we hit 100,000, I'll post more details right here!

Hello 2014, Goodbye 2013!

Welcome to 2014 everyone!  Whether you celebrate the Winter Holidays (Hanukah, Kwanza, Christmas, etc.), we can all celebrate the start of a new year!

Here's a break down of what we liked and disliked (and were neutral on) about 2013!


what i liked:

- exo's striking success

- the daejun performances around year's end

- idea of opening a store selling goods of a group (BWCW) 

- Collaboration between companies (JIN's GONE feat. Exo's xiumin
kwill with chanyeol)
