Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

Well, that's su.r.real
Note to media producers who wish to inject some authentic "Asianness" into your music video or other pop culture product: Han•gŭl, the Korean alphabet, is indeed far easier to learn than kanji, but still looks very Oriental and is quite accessible now thanks to Hallyu, the so-called "Korean Wave."
And it's quite practical as well: You can learn how to read it in a few hours, which allows you to look up words in an online dictionary (called a dic) to ensure someone isn't yanking your chain. I recommend any Korean phrasebook or reader that employs McCune-Reischauer.
