The CEO of South Korea’s #2 conglomerate is in a bitter divorce battle with billions of dollars at stake. SK Group Chairman Chey Tae-won seems to have the upper hand so far against his estranged wife No So-young.

But No So-young, the daughter of former South Korean President Roh Tae-woo is not giving up until she gains control of her ex-husband’s precious business conglomerate! This is the real K-drama everyone.

Does this handsome face belong to a serial killer or a K-pop idol? Lee Ki-young, a 31-year-old con artist faces numerous charges of getting rid of the people with whom he just couldn’t get along. But how many bodies he’s buried is the question.

On Christmas Day 2022, Lee’s girlfriend opened a closet in search of cat food, and was shocked to find a taxi driver. Her call to the police started an intense investigation that has led to other harrowing details of South Korea’s latest high-profile criminal.

Have yourself a shady little Christmas, Seoulites! Per popular request, I printed out our BTS Military Exemption petition, added a sassy little Christmas card and mailed it over to the president’s office to spread some holiday cheer. Also, the present is designed to remind the president that alienating global consumers of Korean products is hardly the smartest thing to do as we’re predicted to face economic headwinds in 2023.

Though the military exemption issue has largely been concluded, at least we’ve gone through the ritual of sending our voices to South Korea’s top office. See how I put together the care package and the response by the postal ladies at the post office in this video!

Are the walls finally closing in around Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung? The man who almost became the South Korean president in 2022 has long had dark rumors of mob ties, corrupt slush funds and convenient ‘disappearances’ of his enemies tied back to him. But was the latest drastic move by Kim Man-bae a failed attempt or a coded message to prosecutors? Only time will tell if he can survive long enough to avoid a tale that many see as make-believe becoming reality.

December 13, 2022. A momentous day. The first BTS member started his mandatory military duty. Jin arrived around 1:50 pm at the Yeoncheon military base near the North Korean border where he’ll receive five weeks of training. Accompanying him were all his fellow bandmates of BTS to wish him a warm farewell. We won’t be seeing Jin as a civilian until June 12, 2024. Should we be worried? Well, there have been deadly incidents at this exact army base in the past as I outline in this video.
