The BEST restaurant in Seoul, especially for Gingseng Chicken Soup! I was told a former South Korean president used to frequent this restaurant 'cause it's so good!

Our ONU graduates of Hanyang University's Summer School. Finally I got a picture of all eight of them! They all really did great, especially Sheila who received an academic achievement award (and a gift of a digital camera) and Travis who received a best smile award, and Rachel who received a Korean Language award.

Well, South Korea has finally come out with a banknote with a higher denomination than 10,000 won. The picture doesn't do it justice - it's really pretty. Not very many Koreans apparently knew it was coming out until it did - many were surprised. On June 23, 2009, the Bank of Korea released the 50,000 Won note. On the front a portrait of Shin Saimdang, a prominent 16th-century female artist, calligrapher, and mother of Confucian scholar Yulgok can be seen. She is supposed to be the best example of what korean mother should be.
