Am I Concerned about North Korea?

 

I’ve lived in South Korea since 1995. I’m used to family and friends outside of Korea asking about the dangers of living here, especially whenever the current leader of the Crazy Kim Clan issues some ridiculous Dr. Evil-sounding threat. This latest ‘next generation’ round of bluster from Kim Jeong Eun* seems to have resulted in an all-time high of concern/fear from outside of Korea.  Even some expats here seem worried as evidenced by 45% of people responding that they were “Very concerned and thinking of leaving” in a recent Koreabridge poll.  I suspect many of the 45% are relative newcomers to the peninsula. Most of the oldtimers I’ve spoken with seem more concerned about calming family members than planning evacuation routes.

Comic World Busan – Behind the Lens

 
 
Comic World Busan
May 5-6, 2012 @ BEXCO
More event info here
 
The Bi-monthly Comic World is taking place at Bexco this weekend.  
Korean Language Comic World Site:  comicw.co.kr

The convention itself consists of a few aisles of booths selling comic related paraphenlia.The action was pretty tame at most booths, although this one consistently had long lines. 

There is a stage with scheduled events, but the real action though takes place through camera lenses.  Photographers of every age, constume, and background can’t help but click away at the plethora of comic characters walking around.

A few selected photos are below along with the complete slideshow of my visit there.
