I've been too busy with work these days... and writing and researching always take a lot longer than I anticipate. So I figured it might be a good idea to spread the words for some worthwhile blogs.
AskaKorean! series on IMF bailout of Korea during the East Asian Financial Crisis of 1997
Roboseyo vs. AskaKorean! They have been discussing on the topic of "Nobody owns Arirang". Both have been going on in multiple blog posts to highlight their points. Chronologically :
Nobody Owns Arirang (Roboseyo)
Uh, No. Arirang Belongs to Korea. Thanks. (AskaKorean!)
Koreans USE Arirang... but OWN It?: Part One: The Stakes (Roboseyo)
Koreans USE Arirang... but OWN It?: Part Two: Identify, Use... but Own? (Roboseyo)
All are very rich in information, politics, philosophy, and all that sophisticated shenanigans. Many of you are probably unfamiliar with the topic, but I think it's a very interesting read regardless.
