Korean beauty trends via online videos are becoming more popular, 10 Magazine showcases 10 over-the-top gift sets for Chuseok, Eat Your Kimchi reflect on suicide in Korea, and how good is your K-slang?

"Korean beauty YouTubers reach out to global viewers"

Korea's cultural influence extends beyond the notable means of mainstream music and cinema scenes. Individuals and organisations are taking advantage of video-sharing sites like YouTube to reach international audiences to share their beauty secrets: "Video-sharing websites -- YouTube and AfreecaTV -- are becoming the top destinations for young tech-savvy viewers seeking customized mobile content and two-way communication, according to Kang Mee-eun, a professor of communication and media at Sookmyung Women's University".


"10 Over-the-top Korean Chuseok Gift Sets"

It's custom in Korea to share gifts sets around Chuseok, South Korea's harvest celebration, and in this post 10 Magazine takes a look at some of the more, well, interesting and over-the-top sets that may find themselves to you and yours.


"Suicide in Korea"

The Eat Your Kimchi crew discuss a very important topic in modern Korea: suicide. Korea has one of highest suicide rates in the world, and it's a phenomenon that isn't restricted to one particularly demographic. They discuss the statistics and also provide contact details for those struggling with depression. Pass it on.


"[Review] As much as a rat's tail Korean Slang"

How good is your K-slang? Hanguk Drama reviews Peter N. Liptak and Siwoo Lee's "Korean Slang" to find out if this streetwise slang book is worth it: "Not one of your run-of-the-mill Korean resources, this one focuses on Korean slang – those that people do use. Although the basic format is somewhat like a vocab book / phrasebook, it is an addictive read. Yes. Addictive".
