Ask a Korean! News: The Korean Radio Show

Most people with a blog like this may receive book deal first, but not the Korean.

Actually, the Korean received a radio deal.

NPR liked Ask a Korean! enough so that they are now offering a 30-minute weekly show featuring the Korean, answering questions as he would do at AAK!

With luck, this would be a start of the Korean's career as a media celebrity.

Occasionally, the Korean would also have guests on his show of his choosing as well.

Obviously, the Korean is pretty excited about it.

Just thinking that AAK! only started as an inauspicious blog, it is pretty incredible.

Energizing, even.

October 21, 2009, the three-year anniversary of AAK!, would be the first air date.

List of questions will include the fan death issue, so be ready.

Got a question or a comment for the Korean? Email away at

    The Korean Revealed

    it has a tradition on this site!

  10. At first I thought it was an encrypted anagram as the first letter of each sentence had the same number of characters as "April Fools," but I couldn't understand the vowel pattern. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure it out then I realized it was as simple as.

    Man Woo Joel.

    April Fools in Korean. Duh.

  11. Congrats, congrats! :)
    I look forward to your segments!

  12. Congrats! This is well deserving. I am hoping this isn't a Aprils Fools Day hoax.

    If you need a MC, please do let me know. I am very versed in social, political, and economical histories of Korea.

    I would do it free.

    MC hoping to be a real MC!!!!

  13. That's more fun than twenty rabbits in a hangari - get down on it, AAK!!

  14. April Fools!

    The Korean thanks everyone for playing. See you all again next year.

    Carol, the Korean does wonder about that. Care to email?

  15. AAK, your wish is my command. Hopefully, this will address The Korean's curiosity: solving the Korean equation. Keep your shirt on!

  16. Ha ha, I thought Man Woo Jeol was your name, until I Googled it. =)

  17. So at what time? Will it ve like car talk by 2 MIT guys?
