Ironman KOREA: Jeju Island, Summer of 2011

 

By Leann Peters

An amazing event was held in Korea last weekend: the Ironman triathlon. If you’re not familiar with what that is, it’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile ride, and a 26.2 mile run.  Massive! They also offered the Half Ironman, which is half the distance, and the race that I did. Here is how it went down on race day for me.

The Joongang quotes the police saying, “The suspect said that he felt humiliated by Seon’s words, and it really fired him up,” a Bundang Police official said. “He didn’t deny the assault, so we will charge him soon without detention.” In addition, the man said he’s willing to apologize to Mr. Seon.

The Booking Club in Ilsan: Booked for the First Time

By Whitney Marie Butler

What is it? Well, it’s a club… but different.

The booking club is a mysterious and alluring mistress; a uniquely Korean experience. Just two shots shy of a whore house, lost stumbling somewhere between the front porch and the sidewalk.


7 Things About Korea: Street Food

With my departure from Korea around the corner, I realize I haven't written quite as much about my life here as I had originally hoped. It seems strange that I could churn out an entry a day when I was working a desk-job in Sydney, but while living abroad and dealing with new challenges everyday - I have sometimes gone weeks without a post.

One of Korea's signature snacks - gimbap. Rice, seaweed, pickle, cheese, and spam. Cheap and fairly healthy.
