"21 Pictures that Prove Jeollanam-do is the Most Underrated Region of South Korea"

Mimsie Ladner may just have thrown a spectacular spanner in your travel plans with this post on Culture Trip: "Blanketed in rolling hills and towering mountains, and bordered by a coastline of thousands of charming islands, the area is famous for its gorgeous landscapes, fresh seafood, and traditional festivals". According to Mimsie, Jeollanam-do is "by far" the most underrated region in the country, and she's got 21 beautiful photographs to prove it...


"Former North Korean propaganda artist turns his skills to satire"

"They've said they will send agents to kill me", said Song Byeok, a former North Korean artist who has turned his creative powers against the DPRK. "Every day, when I go home, I worry there may be somebody waiting". According to this article on Reuters, Song spent seven years helping to paint the Dear Leader and his ideas in a positive light, but after a suffering starvation, desperation, and six months at a labour camp, he managed to survive, regain his strength and escape the lands he once glorified.

Apples, rocks, motorbikes and vases are just a few of the objects Rocky puts his mind to balancing.
