- In a positive trend, more women in South Korea are willing to marry younger men — and not be embarrassed about it.
- Reuters has an interesting piece on how age-related expectations are changing in the workforce.
- The Korea Food & Drug Administration has released a study showing that the stereotype of larger-faced Koreans does not hold. I hope they did all that after they were done checking the food supply for melamine and e coli.
- The Korea Times suggests that immigration reform being proposed in the US may make it easier for science grads, including many in South Korea, to immigrate to America.

- Per capita income in South Korea, when measured in dollars, has dropped to a five-year low thanks to a weakened KRW (story also here and here).
- The Los Angeles area population is rising again. This isn't exactly Korea-related, but the rising population does include Koreans, so there's that.
- Also not particularly Korea related, slightly more than half of all California voters now support gay marriage.
