K Scene writeup?

My buddy Tom tells me that my blog is one of many Koreablogs mentioned in the latest edition of the free magazine K Scene. My thanks to whoever did the writeup, but be advised that my blog probably doesn't count as a true Koreablog. Just as Koreans have trouble seeing or acknowledging anything Korean about me, your loyal half-breed, so it goes with my blog, a Frankensteinian monstrosity that remains true to its original, hard-to-classify, "shitting all over the place" spirit.

I'll be curious to see how many of my Smoo students pick up K Scene and find this blog. At a guess, none. I've found most English students remarkably incurious about the anglophone world, both in print and online. That's not a reference to the Hermit Kingdom mentality: most of us expats are the same way about the rich and thriving Korean internet. I rarely dip into it myself, and should probably make more of an effort to do so.
