Today is Remembrance Day. Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the world’s freedom and peace. Especially all 516 of Canadians who lost their lives in Korean War service or subsequent Korean peacekeeping service.
Total of 26,791 Canadians served during the Korean War that raged between 1950 and 1953. We thank and remember! 감사합니다.

It was really disgusted to get this kind of news from Korea. Is Korea still in 60′s and 70′s era? The paper saying that drawing on public signboards is an offense in Korea in which the offender receives a fine. I would believe it would be same for many countries that many offenders charged with vandalism by paying do not face jail time. Although an arrest-warrant request was rejected by a local court, Seoul Metropolitan Police requested a warrant for the college lecturer’s arrest, arguing that it was a conspiracy to obstruct the G-20 summit.

In the upper panel, a college lecturer paints a mouse on the signboard promoting the G-20 Summit in Seoul in front of Lotte Department Store in Myeongdong, Seoul.
A policeman spots him and calls to report the scene, saying, “Someone is drawing on the sacred promotional material for the G-20!”
In the lower panel, an agent part of the illegal surveillance of civilians gives an order on his daepo phone, unregistered phone, saying, “Request a warrant for arrest!”
The lecturer reportedly said that he drew a mouse to satirize the Lee Myung-bak government’s fixation on the G-20 summit. The letter ‘G’ sounds similar to the Korean word gwi, mouse, and President Lee has been called “Gwi Myung-bak” by the opponents.
It just ridiculous response by the police! See how citizen’s response to this incident, that’s your lesson 2MB “Gwi” admin.

There was a religious terror, yes it was a terror on my perspective, on a Buddhist temple, Bongeun-sa (봉은사), in the Gangnam area of Seoul. A Group of students from the Church Equipping Worship School (찬양인도자학교) recently went to Bongeun-sa praying for the treading down of a temple.
“This place will be demolished and God will win it back….Useless idols here made me really sad,” a twisted-religious cult said in the clip.
Reverend Choi Ji-ho leads those students from the Church Equipping Worship School to Bongeun-sa to make formal apology on Oct. 27. I doubt it was a sincere apology from their heart. Nor this attack would stop these insane religious cult people doing same disrespectful attack on Buddhism or any other religions. News are popping up that this kind of religious attack also been practiced in Dongwha-sa as well as in a temple in Myanmar.
Are they really believe in Jesus? Or their Jesus is different from mine? Okay, so maybe not Jesus, Jesus probably pretty swamped with all other stuffs. Religion starts from comprehension and appreciation of others, you idiots.

Fantastic performance! Yu-na Kim was crowned Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games champion with a new world record combined total of 228.56. She won with a huge margin of 23.06 points.
“Kim Yu-na dissolved into tears after she obliterated the opposition to become the first South Korean to win an Olympic figure skating gold medal, while a grieving Joannie Rochette melted millions of hearts with a display of sheer courage…”
The “Queen” Yu-na, center, stands with silver medalist Mao Asada, left, and bronze medalist Joannie Rochette of Canada during the medals ceremony.
Kim Yu-na can finally relax and not need to think about the future after the teenager rose to the occasion and won the gold medal in the women’s figure skating on Thursday.
The 19-year-old was the overwhelming favorite to finish top of the podium but said the pressure going into the event was immense.
“I feel now as if a huge burden has been lifted,” the Games’ highest-earning female athlete — she makes an estimated $8 million a year — said after her dazzling, near-perfect program where she nailed all of her 11 jumps.
“I will enjoy this moment and think about things later. I was just thrilled on the podium and I feel so relieved. I had been running toward this dream of the Olympics and was so happy to be here,” she said.
“Since I have accomplished the most important goal in my life I am going to enjoy this moment for a while and then think about what I am going to do,” a beaming Yu-na said…
And here’s clip explains the “Queen” Yu-na with Canadian Coach Brian Orser!
Thank you, Yu-na Kim! 연아야 고마워!
