Photo News 2005

Kt1200506142119501Pres. Roh and and his "Woori" friends walk to a meeting followed by Opposition Leader Park Geun-hye (walking a modest 5 steps behind the men, like all proper Korean women should). Notice Park Geun-hye checking out Rep. Moon Hee-sang, chairman of the ruling Woori Party. I bet she's wondering how many North Korean families could be fed just on the meat in Moon Hee-sang's head alone.

Lovely ties, don't you think? They say that behind every pink tie in Korea is a pot-bellied middle-aged ajoshi who desperately hopes that said tie will make him look more youthful, thus giving him a chance to score with his hot 21-year-old secretary.

Vnok200506142053311_1South Korea’s U-20 football players preparing for a big match with Nigeria.  "South Korea are placed at
the bottom of Group F with one loss."

"Placed at the bottom of Group F." That can't be good psychologically.

Vnok200506141907321Daewoo Group founder Kim Woo-choong arriving at the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office building to face charges of accounting fraud.  Poor guy. His life is going to be hell for the next year or so until he gets his customary full pardon.
Note how that pink tie makes Kim (age 68) look like a spritely 67 year old.

Kt2200506131816401President Roh looks on as former President Kim Dae-jung spews out some BS about how wonderful life has become since he paid Kim Jeong-il a shit-load of money to shake his hand and take pictures in Pyeongyang.
Pres Roh looks a little pouty to me.  I would be too if I couldn't get out of the shadow of a failure like Kim Dae-jung.   
"LG Electronics executive vice
president Nam Sang-geon, right, and company employees... work at a charity
bazaar in front of LG Twin Towers in Yoido,
central Seoul, Saturday. LG Electronics employees donated some 40,000
items and were forced to work err....volunteered as one-day salesclerks."

I know some LG employees, and believe me they had as much of a choice to give up their weekend as a North Korean has when voting in the DPRK general elections. Some LG employees were expected to come in on Sunday to make up for the work that they normally would have done on that Saturday.  Yippee! Wouldn't want all this charity to work to cut into our profits!

Kp1_2050314n1240Ja Woo Rim (자우림) lead singer Kim Yun-a holding up a Pepsi in their new commercial. This is the same Kim Yun-a who makes anti-western videos and professes to hate American globalization and "white supremists" in the States. It's really nice to see how quickly she falls on her back and spreads her legs when one of them big white corporations waves some money under her nose.

Keep raging against the machine, sweety...

Those silly ties are metrosexual gheyness for the ajossi set.

you are hollywood gold stealers. dokdo is our land.

Posted by: dokdo | June 17, 2005 at 08:49 AM

Dokdo, that was an excellent rebuttal to a post that had absolutely nothing to do with Dokdo or Hollywood.

And for the record, I swear I have never at any time stolen gold from Hollywood.

"I bet she's wondering how many North Korean families could be fed just on the meat in Moon Hee-sang's head alone."


I'll bet she's wondering if she can have KJI some more children, but hey that's a good idea about Moon. The head is a terrible thing to waste.

"Park Geun-hye (walking a modest 5 steps behind the men, like all proper Korean women should)"

Umm... I think propriety has nothing to do with it.

How can a woman be manipulative towards men if she's walking out in front?

How does a farmer whip his livestock along to the desired destination from anywhere but 5 steps behind?

Again, honourable Pooper, you have outdone yourself. BTW, when are you going to make it to Vancouver? There is an excellent pub just down the road that is right on the ocean. I'll buy the first round.

Posted by: kimchipig | June 19, 2005 at 09:37 AM

KP: Won't be in Canada anytime soon, I'm afraid. No thoughts of visiting Korea again just for the memories? Anyway, stop with the excuses and get blogging again. Nobody in Vancouver is too busy to blog.

Oranckay: Though most of us around here may be "oranckay" in the usual sense of the term, methinks you are not the original "oranckay" in the Korean blogosphere (the KJI reference in particular seemed out of character).

Oranckay, I stand corrected. I'm glad to see my blog brings out those kinds of comments from you. :)

Liked the "fertilizer" comment on your blog, by the by...

Photo Fun June 2005

BoybagsSwiped this picture from connectkorea. In modern Korean families with only 1-2 children (most likely stopping as soon as the first male child is produced), this is what happens when you do not have an older brother around to kick your ass when you do something totally gay.

Thank God Korean males go to the military where this kind of behavior is literally stomped out.

Kt1200506022124231SNU professor Hwant Woo-suk, who recently become a household name in Korea for making extraordinary advances in stem-cell research, reportedly telling Science and Technology Minister Oh Myung at a ceremony: "Dude, you wouldn't believe the kind of tail I'm getting these days. I'm a fuckin' rock star!"

Vnok200506012209000From the Korea Times: "Water flows down Chonggyechon stream during a test run of the stream’s
water flow, Wednesday. The stream near Kwanggyo, central Seoul, had
been covered by pavement for the last 40 years. The stream’s
restoration will be completed on Oct. 1"

It will be really nice for Seoulites to have a new place to dump their garbage (the Han River really isn't that accessible). I can't wait for the mass demonstrations to come when the first American GI gets caught tossing a beer can into it.

Drama5Stole this picture from you know who (excreted at 1 AM; the Big Ho's most brilliant work always comes along in the wee hours). The original caption read: "We're staring at your tits and we like what we see."
I've found the picture's concept works even better if you drop your pants in front of the computer screen (especially considering the expression of the girl in the pink shirt).
Drama3If you find while waving your pecker in front of the computer screen that the Big Ho's expression is more than a little disconcerting, try the same
exercise in front of this picture. The pink shirt girl's expression is even better (YES!!), the girl on the right is flatteringly terrified of your manliness, and you even get a little response from "Z" (not an easy thing to do, I understand). The Big Ho, in response to this challenge to his mating dominance of the herd, assumes battle positions.

Sheer genius. And the best I can come up with is fish blogging. Wanna see my bass?

Your pecker? Sheer pathetic-ness.

Is that all you got Bluejives? IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?!?

In the words of my 43rd most favorite American president: Bring it on.

[Angry white male expats and even angrier Korean male kyopos; don't you just love it?]

Posted by: partypooper | June 07, 2005 at 06:37 PM


What makes you think I'm angry? Does my text on your screen look angry to you?
Dude, I come in the name of peace and to further my understanding of this strange creature that is an expat who lives and work in korea through the examination of their blogs.

BTW, I really loved your Gaywatch Korea post. Pretty fucking hilarious. You were point on about how Koreans seem to have a poorly developed sense of "gaydar", as you put it. Anyone who didnt know any better would think Korean males were a bunch of latent queers from reading your blog.

I also found your "disclaimer" that just because you happen dwell on gayish subjects doesnt mean you're gay yourself. Interesting. You've got a link to the right that says "Mincing with Myojung". I clicked on it and took a look. It turned out to be a blog of a gay man in Korea. I dont know, man. Something's fishy.

BTW, I like your light pastel green and pink colors. Kinda like a chick's blog.

Important Disclaimer

Just because this author spent hours and hours on this subject does not in any way mean that he might be gay. I'm sick of people claiming that I must be secretly gay because I expend so much energy talking about it. I love women. Lots of them. As a matter of fact, I even have sex with them, sometimes even more than once. So just stop thinking that about me right now.

Posted by: bluejives | June 10, 2005 at 07:24 PM

Bluejives! My fellow American! I was worrying you wouldn't come back to play. Thanks for the compliments on my gaywatch post. A lot of people have enjoyed that. Some dense and/or humorless people just don't get it, but it's nice to see that you did. :)

Are you Real Reality from over at Dave's? You seem like the same person...

Posted by: Jackie | June 20, 2005 at 09:39 PM

Sorry Jackie, we are not the same person. If I were to join the Dave's Cafe crew, I would choose a really super clever name like "kimchi Jjang!" or "Bondegi Warrior" and post some fresh and new topics, like about how Korean girls are when dating or a top-ten list of what bothers me about living in Korea.
