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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Korean Revealed
it has a tradition on this site!
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.ReplyDelete

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