Here is a new shameless gimmick item -- a quick list of articles that the Korean read. For the Korean's Facebook friends, most of the links can be found on the Korean's Facebook wall. Will the Korean be able to stick to it, or will it meet the fate of the last shameless gimmick item, which is yet to see another installment? We'll see.
