Dia Frampton Participates in the Preliminary of Korean Music Audition Program

Dia Frampton appeared in the preliminary round of
“Super Star K,” a Korean music audition program.
She is already the second place winter of The Voice in 2011,
which is a music program by NBC in the U.S.

The size of Korean music market is like a miniature of the Asian music market.
It has been over decades that many other Asian countries such as
China, Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand have called Korean songs as K-pop.
Also, sweeping Korean music creates an effect like sweeping throughout entire Asia.

Since Gangnam Style,
Korean music has often appeared on Billboard Music chart.
Clearly, there is an enough reason that Dia Framptom has decided to

come to Korea and participate in a Korean music audition program.

한국의 음악 오디션 프로그램, "슈퍼스타 k" 의
예선무대에 등장했다.
그녀는, 이미 미국 NBC 에서 진행하는
The Voice 의 2011년 준우승자다.

한국 음악시장의 크기는 아시아를 축소한것과 같다.
이미 중국, 일본, 대만, 태국 등 여러 아시아국가는. 
한국의 노래를 k-pop 이라 부르기 시작한지 수십년이 지났고.
한국음악을 휩쓰는것은, 아시아 전체를 휩쓰는것과 같은 효과를 낳는다.

강남스타일 이후,
한국음악은, 줄곧 빌보드차트에 직행하기도 한다.
그녀가 한국에 와서 오디션 프로그램에 다시 참가한 이유. 
충분히 있다.


We respect Mr. Kyeongdeok Seo’s promotion of Korea

We respect Mr. Kyeongdeok Seo’s promotion of Korea

We Full Korea respect Mr. Kyeongdeok Seo’s promotion of Korea.
However, some raise objections to Mr. Seo’s promotion ways as follows.

But we are wondering what outcome for the promotion of Korea
that the person who wrote this has made.
Of course, we do not believe that Mr. Seo’s actions are all correct.
There are many things to be improved.
We Full Korea are also a bit sorry that Mr. Kyeongdeok Seo’s aim to
has become like
However, don’t you think small promotional activities of Korea should come together?
As you know, the government does not take the initiative to do anything.

Although a civil diplomatic body’s actions are not that good enough,
we should encourage each other and improve them.


North Korea Fires Artillery at South Korea

North Korea Fires Artillery at South Korea

Korea is the only divided nation in the world.
It is divided into North Korea and South Korea.
It has not been reunified yet.
While Germany was divided into East Germany and West Germany
and was reunified into one nation later,
in Korea, North Korea fired artillery at a speaker through which
South Korea sends announcements toward North Korea.
130 residents in the area escaped.
South Korea fired back at the North in return.

The feeling that a war will begin has been continuing for decades.
The division of Korea into South and North started
when both were divided into two different regimes in July 1947,
so Korea has been divided for 67 years as of 2015.
North Korea provokes the South every 3 to 4 years.
Recently, the Chinese stock market keeps dropping.
South Korea, the 10th largest economy in the world, is heavily influenced by China.
On top of this, North Korea also provoked South Korea,
which is having a bit troubled day.

A Good Article to Understand Korea Easily

A Good Article to Understand Korea Easily

Korea is the only divided nation in the world.
There are still North Korea and South Korea.
It is a country where the separation due to the war still exists,
and it is a country of repeated sadness as my family is only a few hundred km away
but cannot be reached due to a political conflict
—the sadness that is incomparable to the separation of a couple.

Brothers who were separated in their teens reunited when they became old men,
and had to say farewells in only two hours.
Would they be able to see each other again in their life?

North Korea, as you can always see on CNN, is a communist country
with the 180th largest economy in the world.
The development of nuclear weapons is the only breakthrough for this country.

However, South Korea has the 10th largest economy in the world.
It produced Samsung, LG, and Hyundai Motor, advanced to the semifinals in the
World Cup, and won the 4th place in the Olympics.
In 2012, Korean singer PSY was ranked 2nd place on Billboard with ,
which became worldwide dance music following Los del Río – Macarena.
It uses the fastest internet in the world and the most number of internet devices.

This is the reason that many people pick South Korea as a country
that has achieved the fastest and largest development in the last 100 years.


Full Korea for the Past 5 Years

Full Korea for the Past 5 Years

Full Korea (www.fullkorea.com) that you are reading now has been run since May 2010.
It is August 2015 right now, so it has been running for 5 years and 3 months.
So far, we have hoped Full Korea to be famous overseas
rather than being famous in Korea.

With a concern that it will be uncomfortable to make contents freely
if we received a lot of attention from Koreans, and since
that it is a medium to promote Korea,
we focused on presenting Full Korea to overseas more than in Korea.
We have created many contents about various Korean news and information on
Korean society, politics, Dokdo, economy and culture.
As a result, our record for the past 5 years and 3 months are as follows.

About 61,400 people from the U.S., 12,000 people from France,
8,000 people from Ukraine and Israel, and about 2,000~4,000 people from
each of Germany, China, Russia, Canada, and Malayisa….
These people obtained the information of Korea through FullKorea.com.

FullKorea.com is my precious and valuable hobby.
Also, it is a unique website that has described
openly about Korea for someone living abroad.
As far as I know, FullKorea.com is the only promotion channel about Korea
that has been exposed to the most number of foreigners as a single channel.


Korea Grand Sale, Stupid Korean Politicians

Korea Grand Sale, Stupid Korean Politicians

MERS, which is equivalent to SARS, swept through Korea.
It resulted in a total of 186 patients and 36 death tolls.
Korea had the second highest number of death tolls after
the Middle East, the initial place of origin of MERS.
What the government presented as a measure to deal with MERS was
“Avoid any physical contact with camels.”
There are no camels in Korea.
The government also announced that if foreigners who visited Korea during
MERS period, the government will pay for all medical expenses,
so they should keep visiting Korea to travel.

Korea is also planning and running Korea Grand Sale to revitalize shopping.
It is similar to Black Friday.
It is hosting Korea Grand Sale, which was originally held
during off season in the winter, from August 21st to October 31st.
It is because to increase the tourism sales that was reduced due to MERS.
And, it is too difficult even for me who was born and
raised in Korea to receive the discounts.

It seems that Korea Grand Sale is a day to show the dark side of
Korean politics in a black way, not an actual Black Friday.
