· Read about Korea from people around the world!
|The Korea Blog is an English-language blog run by Korea.net (www.korea.net) – the official webpage of the Republic of Korea, operated by the Korean Culture and Information Service (KOCIS). The aim of the Korea Blog is to show the contemporary side of Korea and its culture while opening up a space for community discussion.
