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!

Hulu goes Hallyu
Forget the K-pop concert in Paris, the real sign of the Korean Wave is Hulu.com adding a slew of Korean "dramas" to their repertoire. Frankly, I'm not sure if they're on the regular hulu.com service, which is free, or if it's the hulu+ pay service.
The latter is about $8/month and it includes all episodes of back seasons of many television shows, as well as a growing list of classical movies. I myself have subscribed to hulu+ because that's the only way they let you watch hulu.com shows on a mobile device like an iPhone or an iPad.
Also, I don't believe hulu.com or hulu+ are available in South Korea. At least, last time I was in Seoul I could not get hulu.com to work (ditto with my Netflix membership, which happens to have a large pool of Korean movies).
