Gusts of Popular Feeling: "The Seoul Olympics, 25 Years Later"

The Korea-centric blog Gusts of Popular Feeling has a series of posts about the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul that is very interesting. I knew about Byun Jong-il before, and it's good to read more about him and the situation that led to his sitting down and pouting in the boxing ring.

Anyway, it's interesting stuff to reflect upon, especially considering the 2018 Winter Olympics which will be in Pyeongchang.
