Welcome to the Korean News & Culture thread! This thread is for the discussion of all current news and events in South Korea, as well as the discussion of Korean culture in a wider sense that isn't necessarily covered in the main K-Pop thread. Of course, articles and stories related to K-Pop are certainly welcome in here, just as long as the focus is a bit more broad (stuff like "blah artist is coming back next month!!!" or chit chat about the latest hit song isn't really the purpose). If you see an interesting article or news piece related to South Korea, please share with everyone in here!
