A few interesting bits o' news

A really nice list of 10 Reasons to visit Jeju Island (the "Hawaii of Korea" which I hit up in Fall, '09) over at CNN. Truly one place that I think deserves all of the hype it gets from Korean people.

A really interesting bit o' statistics from the Wall Street Journal: suicides are down in Korean subway stations but up on bridges. Korea has the highest suicide rate within all of the OECD developed nations.

And finally, a really interesting piece in the New York Times today about South Korean online matching making services trying to find the perfect match for Kim Jong-Un (all in the name of fun/marketing, of course). Surprisingly insight into the quagmire that is dating in Korea, I thought...
