Well, I figure I should do more news reports. So much is not known about things in this part of the world…or things that are related to Korea.
SEOUL, South Korea — Nine North Korean defectors have been forced to return to their country from China after being captured in Laos, a South Korean news report says.
Laos had been assumed to be a safe route for North Koreans leaving their mostly poverty-stricken homeland. Activists say that defectors who are returned to North Korea can be punished or even killed by the regime, considered one of the world’s most repressive and brutal.
Surprise surprise. I just can’t really fathom a country that goes to such great lengths of control. It simply can’t last.
PYONGYANG, North Korea — New international sanctions aimed at thwarting North Korea’s nuclear weapons program are having unintended consequences: halting money transfers by foreign humanitarian groups working to help those most in need and forcing some agencies to carry suitcases of cash in from outside.
Sometimes I am a little mixed. I mean, people should be allowed to do what they want but at the same time, if other people want to do something different, then it should be so. If you simply cannot bear to think on you own and let someone else run your life, that’s fine by me but you should be aware of the alternatives and make an informed decision.
A painful plastic surgery usually only performed for medical reasons is being embraced by South Koreans as the latest way to improve their appearance.
Double-jaw surgery is a radical solution to correct facial deformities and is usually carried out on people who are unable to chew properly due to an excessive over or underbite.[emphasis mine]
First, I could easily tell from the pic that it was a fake ‘before’ image. You start to see these ‘advertisements’ all over the place where it’s rather obvious the ‘before’ pic is simply an edited version of the ‘after’ pic. I especially like the one poster where they changed the size of the ‘after’ to make it look even more dramatic :)
