Two interesting articles about Korea and Korean Americans in New York Times recently.
Thomas Friedman writes that the world needs more American leadership, extensively quoting from Korean officials. The Korean wholeheartedly agrees.
Second generation Korean Americans are coming up with interesting Korean fusion food that is gaining in popularity. The Korean is actually a purist when it comes to Korean food, so he is ambivalent about this development. Thank you for the readers who sent the story. The Korean already saw the article by the time it was emailed, but thank you anyway.
But the Korean cannot let that story pass without saying this. About a decade ago, the Korean and the Korean Brother discussed a plan to retrofit a truck such that it can grill galbi on a stick. We would have taken it to the beach and sell it to the passers-by. Unfortunately, the Korean and the Korean Brother had to go to college and end up at boring jobs. We would have been millionaires.
