I love kim chi and Runningman!

There’s much to love about Korea. The people, the food, the dramas and of course the more recent trend setters – the k-pop frenzie! Albiet I could be a little to old to dance on the table but never to old to do it behind closed doors. Its so catchy don’t you think? Take the recent Psy video on Gangnam Style??

Though I haven’t been to Korea, much has been dreamt of. What I admire most about Korea is their loyalty to support their very own. Thats how Hyudai became a top selling car…. their perseverance to achieve greatness as a country is uncompromising. They will not stop at anything to gain better knowledge, better technology to come out with better products that the whole world can appreciate.

Often times, the invention is not new… they simply improve what has been done for decades by their ancestors that today’s technology can enhance. Isn’t that great? You already have something that works…why reinvent the wheel right.

Here’s a few examples
