Where are the characters of yesteryear? Where are the greats like Sonny and Ramblesofftopic? They were consigned to the waygook archives by the kimchi dzigae bore jobs who like to make their own marrkolee on Sundays. We need a new hero. Someone to put some spice into this bland site of briefcase wielding green tea drinking let's take the bus instead of a taxi generation of waygooks. At the least KimMandu reporting someone in Starbucks for monetizing a 37 view youtube video to the Korean ministry of foreign affairs. Anything man.

Oooooh. True.

Smaug was pretty awesome, and I liked the... randomness? ... of Splongebob's advice too. And Frozencat was great because he was both eloquent *and* super easy to rile up.  :laugh:

I don't know, the one I miss the most at the moment is Donovan. He knew how to be funny without being a jerk about it.

But genderpotato / meep were good, too.

Yep, Donovan was great too, but... I mean, who stops endlessly posting on the interwebs just because they had a baby?  :rolleyes:  :laugh:

He had an existential crisis, but he's also not really gone for good, yet, either.

Forgot about him. And his mini-me version.  :afro:

But was Camden ever among us?
Did he *really* do everything that's been said about him?
All we have is the word of that one bitter poster who complained about his utter awesomeness.
Must I really take his awesomeness on faith alone?

Camgnostic.  :sad:

TBH I'm not sure. I'm also Camgnostic. But, part of me does want to believe that Camden is truly out there;
Being that super awesome, almost godlike, ESL teacher, that the church of Camden (that 1 bitter poster), told us about; and making ESL teaching in Korea, mildly better!

Don't know. Evidently he is still active, but maybe is just a lurker now.

The appearance by North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, on Sunday at a concert by South Korean musicians in Pyongyang was all the more unusual because his authoritarian government has been struggling to stave off what it sees as an infiltration of the South’s pop culture among his isolated people.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/01/world/asia/kim-jong-un-north-korea-k-pop-concert.html

Attention was focused on how Mr. Kim would react to the pop singers, particularly Red Velvet. The five-member girl group is typical of South Korean girl groups — known for their chirpy, bubble-gum harmonies and sexy choreography.

Their tunes are so infectious that the South Korean military has broadcast them across the border in a psychological war against North Korean soldiers. The North used to threaten to direct its artillery at the loudspeakers, warning of an “all-out war” if the South didn’t turn them off.

How things have changed.

South Korean officials said the North did not attempt to reject any of the South Korean song lineup or change the pop stars’ lyrics or risqué dance moves.

(But apparently, even North Korea had a limit to how far it would go in accepting K-pop. South Korean officials said the North had rejected their suggestion that the global star Psy, the singer famous for his “Gangnam Style” hit, be included in the visit.)

    Probably because Psy has been known to include political and social commentary in his lyrics, unlike the vapid majority of other pop stars.
    It's too bad... I was looking forward to what his "Pyeongyang Style" dance would've looked like!

True. But he's already made 2 or 3 big comebacks. Who knows, that Pyeongyang gig might have been the big breakthrough performance to kickstart comeback #4!

...don't get me wrong, I don't actually like his music, but I do like wasting time on what-ifs.

I'm pretty sure NK wasn't interested in Psy because he's a chubby ajjeosshi. Had he been a pretty thing in her 20s, he'd have been welcome.
