Predictions for 2010: What do you think will happen in Korea in 2010?

So, it's a new month, a new year, a new decade. What do you think is in store on the Korean Peninsula (or elsewhere in the Korea diaspora) for this coming year?

I'll start. I think, based on North Korea's Great Currency Obliteration of 2009, North Korea will either melt down, or come darned close. I realize that's a bit of a bold bet and it may be foolish to gamble my reputation, but I really think this currency revaluation may prove to be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back. So some day we will Look back to that crisp autumn day when I made my bold prediction, and I shall baduk* in that glory (as I did for a short while about the Stupogants and them actually having gone into North Korea of their own accord).

So, anyway, what do you predict for 2010?

* A reference to scatter-shot predictor of doom baduk in regards to Hwang Woosuk's fakery.

    Also, you'll have to define "darned close".

    Mr. Joo Seong-Ha, whose words on NK I trust above and beyond anyone, said the currency reform is not really a big deal: Link

    Just FYI.
