News blogsEdit

  • Two of the best, most accurate/in-the-know Korean blogs are The Marmot's Hole and Oranckay. Oranckay is a seasoned veteran, fluent in Korean and living here since the mid-80's. They are both translators for various news media in Korea and get most of the news first. Marmot's blog tends to attract a lot of commentors of all kinds, making it essentially a forum with one supreme moderator.
  • Mongdori draws its content from popular Korean video sites to keep you up-to-date on news and entertainment from a netizen's perspective. Videos range from the humurous, the serious, to the downright bizarre. The videos have English summaries, and offer insights into modern Korean life.
