Daily Kor for April 28, 2010

It's nice to have some good news for a change. Congratulations, Oh Eunsun! Now get down safely.
  1. South Korean climber Oh Eunsun becomes first woman to reach summit of all fourteen peaks over 8000 meters (AP via LAT, Reuters, Guardian, Yonhap, Joongang Daily, Korea Herald, Korea Times)
    • Dispute exists over alpinist's feat (BBC)
  2. South Koreans stream to memorial altars for victims of Chonan sinking (Yonhap)
    • Heritage Foundation senior researcher says ROK unlikely to respond militarily (Yonhap)
    • Experts say sinking shows hole in ROK defense (Yonhap)
    • North Korean watchers report boasting about "revenge" brought by sinking (Joongang Daily)
  3. ROK foreign exchange traders buy $1.5 billion to offset "excessive" rise of Korean won (Reuters, Bloomberg)
  4. HSBC head says bank will not bid for Korea Exchange Bank (Reuters)
  5. South Korea lifts iPad "ban" (WSJ, Yonhap, Joongang Daily)
  6. President Lee says Saemangeum tidal flat reclamation will change Korea's history (Yonhap)
  7. Shockwave ripples through washed-up former athlete community as Pete Rose's girlfriend, Kiana Kim, revealed to be Real Doll (ESPN)


  1. If she's gonna dig for gold, then why target Pete Rose?

  2. Hey, maybe she's not digging for gold but dates Pete Rose because she grew up a Reds fan and liked the way he played ball back in the '60s & '

    Anyways...this is just another story of a young Korean hottie wrapped around the arms of an old washed up celebrity (a la Nicolas Cage, Woody Allen, etc).

  3. I get a lot of hits to this particular post ("Real Doll" is blogging gold!), so I come back and re-read it from time to time.

    I just wanted to respond with something I probably should have months ago: Soon-yi Previn a "young Korean hottie"? Only one word in between those quotation marks is correct, one is still sorta correct, and the other is flat-out wrong.

    Don't make me put up links.
