My piece on migrant workers in Korea is up on WorldNewYork. Three words : painfully. mangled. syntax. A few revisions might have been wise. Ah well.
Thanks to Grant for being patient.
An amusing page 3 picture in the Korea Times this morning, with a lineup of men at the Hankook Ilbo Building in Seoul, holding placards reading (romanized for your reading pleasure) : Tambae Soebi ChaChu. This translates, more or less, into “The Beginning of the Era of Smokers’ Rights”.
Apparently the members of the Korea Smokers’ Association were protesting for their right to smoke in a ceremony marking Tobacco Consumers Day.
I’m not making this up.
