Located on the southern tip of Jeju, Seogwipo (서귀포) is the only other location on the island which can really be called a city. Technically the entire southern half of Jeju is Seogwipo, just as the entire northern half of Jeju is Jeju City, but for the sake of argument the current run of articles is going to focus only on the city of Seogwipo- to the extent it can really be called a city at all. Tourist-directed though the local industry may be, the area is very quiet and peaceful. Even random schoolyards radiate a sort of quiet majesty...More

In anticipation of the 1st International Peace Film Festival in Gangjeong (which starts today), I impulsively grabbed a plane ticket to Jeju. From inside Korea traveling to Jeju is actually quite cheap. Although maybe it just seems like that because April is an off season. I can see why. For most of these early days spent in Jeju City, the weather was pretty balmy, with nary a fluffy white cloud to be seen in the blue sky. Still, I have to admit that from atop the many mountain parks that dot the landscape, the coastline looks pretty cool in any climate...More

I had lots of reasons for going back to Seoul even though I didn't especially want to- the one I most want to discuss is the Chunsa Film Art Awards.

Which seems reasonable. He was up against Choi Min-sik, Jeong Jae-yeong, Lee Byung-hun, and Ahn Seong-gi. And don't say Yoo Ah-in won by being young and handsome, since that same night Ra Mi-ran of all people won the audience popularity award...More

Well, if nothing else, this episode of "Doctor Frost" marks a rather different story direction. There's no murder investigation this time- well, at least not of the recent variety.

"Real Fiction" (2000) is a gritty experimental film of sorts, arguably embryonic entertainment that purposefully tinkers with the art of filmmaking with debatable results. The film was reportedly shot in 200 minutes (cut to 84) and contains an interesting mix of formal framing and dirtied handheld footage.

Well that was a pretty stupid resolution to the cliffhanger. Granted, we knew that Kyeong-hee wasn't actually going to die or anything, but it was all a dream? Really?

For the mean wealthy family there's excessive opulence, for the nice wealthy family there's plain functionality, and for Hyeon-soo there are pictures of her dogs everywhere. These sets themselves tell quite a story if you pay attention...More

The ostentatious displays by our lead characters have managed to get really nauseating. I knew when I started watching "The Heirs" that this was going to be a drama about the extremely rich and well-connected. What I liked about the early episodes was that there was this clear indication that being rich and well-connected is not necessarily a good thing for a person with lousy emotional attachments. The picturesque cityscape of beautiful Los Angeles was consistently tempered by the dark side of life there...More

As you will presumably have noticed, spring has sprung. If you have not, you should immediately, for this is Korea's finest season ― the perfect time to venture beyond city limits and enjoy the green hills and valleys while they are bathed in sharp light and breathing in crystal air, before summer descends in all its steamy grey, humid, shirt-sticking misery.
I recently took the advice I just gave you and spent an invigorating day hiking the shaded trails and visiting the picturesque temples of Mt. Bukhan National Park. After that, dinner was called for, so myself and my companion pulled in at a roadside restaurant in the shadows of the peaks.
This establishment stood at the foot of the mountains, and as we climbed out of the Hyundai, their jagged ridges were reflecting the peach glow of sunset while the skies above turned a translucent blue. This was the perfect spot to eat al fresco, eating up the luminous views along with the "dubu" and drinking in the cool evening air along with the makgeolli...More
Tucked away in Samcheok Gangwon-do lies the popular Haesindang Park. The park is home to the local legend of Aebawi and Haesindang and is littered with penis sculptures to mark the couple's tragic love and the villagers' mourning of it. Last weekend was a long weekend here in Korea and many ventured out to the East coast of Korea to enjoy the time off. Since the Park is also close to Samcheok beach, another very popular attraction for both locals and travellers, it receives a lot of foot traffic during the holidays. Many are aware of the penis statues on Jeju Island and Haesindang Park offers something very similar if you can't make it all the way down South. Enjoy the pictures and venture out there if you ever get the chance!...More

By Robert Neff
The origin of this book is what every historian dreams of - a chance encounter with someone in possession of a cache of documents and correspondences that they don't know what to do with. Prof. Wayne Patterson is one of the few lucky ones.
While accompanying some students on a field trip to China in the early 1980s, Patterson met Lina Sharp, a tourist, who asked him if he would be interested in the personal correspondences of a man who had lived and died in the Far East in the late 19th century - William Nelson Lovatt#. As any historian would - he promptly accepted and committed himself to nearly three decades of research in which he traced down surviving members of the Lovatt family - going so far as to travel to Andorra - and sifted through "nearly indecipherable diaries". The result of his efforts is "In the Service of His Korean Majesty" - a book that is bound to change some of our perceptions of Western involvement in Joseon Korea's early modernization attempts.
Born in England in 1838, Lovatt enliste...More

This massive tome contains rare images of Gwanghyewon (the first Korean hospital of modern medicine) which was established in April 1885 by Dr. Horace N. Allen who went on to become King Gojong's personal physician and later the American Minister to Korea. Prof. Oak notes that at the Gwanghyewon, Allen "used 'uinyo' (government medical/dancing girls) as nurses, yet soon replaced them with male assistants"...More

Nowadays, if a natural disaster or accident occurs, many people take pictures of that site with their smartphones and relay them through YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter.

A Korean woman with bared breasts / Robert Neff Collection circa 1910
By Robert Neff
Photographs and postcards of the late Joseon period often depict Korean women working or walking with bared breasts. Apparently, for many revisionists, this is a cause of shame and these pictures have been denounced as staged photographs - designed to denigrate Korea. They claim that no Korean noblewoman would ever be seen in such an undressed state - especially by foreigners. They are right, to a degree. Noblewomen were secluded from the gaze of men and to be caught outside with their face bare - let alone with breasts bared - would have been unbearably humiliating, but these were not noblewomen - they were women of the lower classes...More
