And I thought I'd start with a list of favorites from my favorite blogs, which (in no particular order and not an exhaustive list) include One Free Korea, Brian (formerly) in Chŏllanamdo, The Marmot's Hole, and ROK Drop.
But this is a list not of my favorite posts from my favorite blogs, but a list of favorites from those bloggers themselves. In December I wrote to those bloggers and several others and asked them for just such a list. It's just my way of giving back.
Brian (formerly) in Chŏllanam-do:
Wangkon of The Marmot's Hole:
Joshua Stanton of One Free Korea:
- 金 = gold (the article is so-so, but I really liked the headline)
- Selig Harrison stars in "Lie Another Day"
- Hyundai settles with family of Ryan Dallas Cook (this is important to me in part because it was a years-long story where I may have played a role)
- And speaking of Kim Jong-un... (a silly post, but the pictures make me laugh)
Anyway, I did ask a few other bloggers for contributions, but I got no response (in all fairness, end of year is a bad time to ask anyone anything). I am happy to entertain additions to this list.
