EPIK has posted a notice about the shelling of Yeongpyeong Island. Because I'm unable to post the url (EPIK's website doesn't allow it), the following is cut and pasted from "What's New" no. 161:

"Dear Guest English Teachers,

In regard to the North Korean shells dropped on Yeonpyeong Island, which sits two miles from the Northern Limit Line(NLL), the EPIK Office would like to inform that the situation is under control and there has been no more exchange of fire since 16:00, November 23rd, Tuesday.

President Lee ordered the authorities concerned to respond firmly but make the best efforts not to worsen the situation.

The North Korean fire occurred yesterday afternoon during a routine military drill conducted by the South Korean Army, known as the Hoguk exercise, which began on November 22, 2010. North Korea criticized the drill and untruthfully called the drill an invasion. By North Korean provocation, two soldiers died and nineteen people including three civilians were injured.

However, apart from the residents of Yeonpyeong Island, the rest of South Korea is still very safe. All citizens of South Korea are calm and are continuing their normal life as usual.

We, the EPIK Office, will continually update information regarding the current situation and would like to advise you to let your family members at home know that you are safe, and that you manage your daily routine as usual."

Sincerely yours,

The EPIK Team"
