- Andrei Lankov tells us Part 1 of the story of the ethnic Koreans on Sakhalin Island. Wikipedia also has a little write-up on the Sakhalin Koreans. Fascinating stuff.
- Richard Kagan did some research and a comparative study on some Vietnam War-era literature that came out of Korea, Japan and the US. Great read for Vietnam War buffs.
- An article from 1899 in the NYT talks about the troubles the first trolley encountered as it tried to launch in a nation that had never seen such a thing. Prelude to the 2002 Armored Tank Incident?
Enjoy your weekend! Jazz Festival anyone?
