SEOUL LIFE: Does being in Korea change how I speak?

What Colour?

What colour

Just Hugh trolling me to make it seem like I was being offensive. Thanks Hugh.

Random fact of the day from Wikipedia: Uzbekistan has an ethnic Korean population that was forcibly relocated to the region by Stalin from the Soviet Far East in 1937–1938. 

Actually the Wikipedia page for Uzbekistan is really interesting. Uzbekistan is Central Asia’s most populous country. The demographic section is fascinating.

I went down the Wikipedia wormhole because I was suddenly curious about Uzbekistan while making this comic.

PROTESTING THE PRESIDENT

We have always known President Park was a likely a puppet (her father was previously a president and a dictator) and we knew cults influenced so much of Korea but it’s shocking to see the extent of it. The corruption is everywhere and Choi Soon-sil, a cult leader, has had a dangerous amount of power over the president. She has had so much influence over everything (everything from dressing the president to rewriting her speeches) and the corruption runs deep.  We have heard firsthand accounts from friends of what she has been doing. She tried to take over important Korean cultural centers to make into her own restaurants (paper businesses for embezzling money), literally walked into them and tried to fire people on the spot. These are important places for traditional Korean culture not only for Koreans but foreigners to experience. This is just one incident of many. Choi Soon-sil has no respect for Korea, uses it as her personal playground and all with the permission of the president. South Koreans are sick of the corruption in politics and are horrified to learn how much corruption there really is. President Park’s approval rating is at an all-time low of 5% and possibly anyone still supporting her only does because they benefit financially. The whole world is a worrying place at the moment which is why going to the protests is important to us.

HALAL KOREAN FOOD

We took the opportunity to film some halal Korean food when we had lunch with friends recently. There are now more and more opportunities for Muslim tourists in Korea and Korea is becoming popular with Muslim travellers, especially those who are fans of Kpop and Kdramas. Korea is also considered a very safe place for Muslims to visit and live. It’s getting easier to eat halal food in Korea. Our friends also eat in normal Korean restaurants and just make sure they are eating seafood, not other meat.
