Korean stuff

These things popped up

1. I am a big fan of David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas—and the movie version will star Bae Doona, one of my favorite Korean actresses (Linda Linda Linda, Barking Dogs Never Bite, Take Care of My Cat, The Host, et al.). (iamkoream)

2. Iris Shim's documentary, The House of Suh, sounds hair-raising. Music is by Michael Hearst, of One Ring Zero fame. (Also from iamkoream)

3. Joshua Davis, in the Stanford alumni magazine, has an interesting story about Korean pop star Dan Lee (Epik High), whose academic credentials (a B.A. and M.A. in 3.5 years) were assailed even after multiple attempts at clarification.

4. Did North Korea fake a flood picture to attract aid? (Business Insider)
