Pak No-ja speaking at Yonsei this weekend

For anyone living in Seoul you have a great opportunity to hear Pak No-ja (aka Vladimir Tikhonov) speak at Yonsei University this weekend. He will be giving a special talk hosted by Ta Hamkke on "Korean nationalism and the left." As the author of 당신들의 대한민국 ["Your Korea"] and most recently 우승優勝 열패劣敗의 신화 ["The Myth of the Survival of the Fittest"] I think we can expect his views to be very interesting and perhaps quite challenging for some leftwing activists in Korea. Details.

Wow, I would love to go and get the jist but alas my Korean is so bad it would hardly be worth it...

I would encourage you to go anyway as he's a very interesting person. He speaks good English and Norwegian I think too. You may also meet some fun people there. You could see it as a fieldtrip to research the Korean leftwing student scene...
