Makgeolli and Politics

We’re not huge on politics here at Makgeolli Mamas and Papas; we really just want the world to sit and enjoy some satisfying makgeolli with us on a rainy day.  But, a new brand of makgeolli produced in Daegu, South Korea, is running into some political issues.

MBA and other admissions counseling work

Hi, I am considering moving to Korea and I would like to get work doing MBA counseling to help clients get into schools like Harvard and Stanford.  I am a graduate of Yale and Stanford and I have about five years experience getting Japanese clients into top ten US schools.
