Extra! Korea

Well f*** me

10 Magazine* is conducting a poll entitled “Your Favorite English Blog.” Korea’s most excellent blogs are in the running, including Gusts of Popular Feeling and Brian in Jeollanam-do. (No disrespect to the others that I didn’t mention.) Well, I’m not in the running, which of course is disappointing. Ask a Korean! and Dokdo Is Ours aren’t either, so I feel a little better. Wait a minute, Lousy Korea is in the poll. Well f*** me. The people have spoken, and they want more Springer, less Sopranos.

* It’s about time that Seoul Magazine had some serious competition. Groove and … I forgot their names already … don’t count.


  1. No idea how Lousy Korea might be considered the *best* Korean blog… In any case, sorry you weren’t listed – you should have been 🙂

    • Thanks. I see that you’re in the running. Congratulations, you deserve to be.

  2. I’ve had to remind myself it’s not a poll for the “best,” but a poll for the “favorite,” something I can’t really campaign for. Don’t feel bad, some of those other sites have been campaigning pretty hard, and have been voting, um, creatively in order to throw off the results.

  3. I don’t understanding voting either… seems skewed to say the least… the current favourite is boring, self indulgent and uninformative when there are others that are ‘streets ahead’ in terms of interest, relevance to Korean matters and affairs, life etc… I am really disappointed…

    • And the one that’s currently in second looks like it’s written by an ex-frat boy who came to Korea to indulge his yellow fever.
