About Korea Beat


Korea Beat, a part of the Galbijim family, was created to bring you a fun way to read Korean news as it’s actually written instead of as filtered through the English-language press. We’ll scour the Korean papers, media and blogs for the best stories and put them here, in English. What we promise to give you is what falls through the cracks everywhere else — for a glimpse of the real Korean media, this is the place to be.

In short, what you’ll read here is Korean blogs, magazines, and news articles translated into English for your edification and enjoyment, straight, no chaser, with an occasional lime twist of random goodness.

Any comments, feedback, questions, and requests can be directed to koreabeat@gmail.com. The main translators here are Nathan and Dave.
