Events This Week: 28/11/2011

There are rather a few huge events on this week in Seoul and South Korea, including one so hyped that a brand new subway car on the recently-opened Bundang line has been decorated in celebration of it.  Yes, we’re talking about the 15th birthday of K-Pop factory YG Entertainment, where huge stars 2NE1 and Big...

Bang(ing?) Culture ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
