  • (79) Female companionship at gold mines

    2012/05/27, Source
    By Robert Neff A miner's life is often lonely and the Western gold miners in northern Korea during the early twentieth century were no exception. Very few Western women visited the mines and those who did were generally missionaries or their daughters, White Russians, or visitors from Seoul or Pyongyang - curious to see Korea's Wild West. It was partially due to this shortage of Western women that some of the miners sought wives amongst other nationalities. Some miners married Japanese women. Amongst them were Ebeneezer Barstow, the transportation supervisor for the Oriental Consolidated Mining Company (OCMC); Soldan Blain, a young miner from Indiana; and Brede Pederson whose son, Charles Pederson, was born in Busan during the Russo-Japanese War and later went on to win a Nobel Prize. Most of these marriages were happy and long ones,...More

  • Kim So-eun's Song Picks

    2010/04/28, Source
    Actress Kim So-eun [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] They say a picture is worth a thousand words but one's voice sometimes has power beyond what one sees. That is why Kim So-eun stands out amongst all the numerous girls that have cheeks as rosy as peaches. Her slightly low tone of voice which is in contrast to her bubbly appearance, discerns her as an actress of good conduct yet one with determination. What stood out more than the dignity cast on her small face or the tears that wet her cheeks was the reverberation and depth of her voice in KBS drama "The Iron Empress" and in "Boys over Flowers", "He Who Can't Marry" and "Good Days when the Wind Blows", her voice once again did not go unnoticed,...More
  • Uhm Tae-woong's Song Picks

    2010/01/07, Source
    Korean actor EomUhm Tae-woong [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] Of the many actors who suddenly become unreachable superstars or who have a hard time getting out of their own characters, Uhm Tae-woong is someone who has quietly walked his own path. After many years as a struggling actor, he played a dying man faced with a death sentence in KBS TV series "Drama City", which led to his role as a fantastic villain who was impossible to hate in "Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang". And after shooting "Revnege" and "Devil", in which he expressed a soul conflicted between the good and bad, between sin and punishment, he gained the nickname "the Eom force". His roles -- a free-spirited young man who falls in love with a woman twenty years his senior in the film "Family Ties", a cold elite coach for the National Women's Handball Team in "Forever the Moment", and a celebrity manager who is driven to the extreme in "Hand Phone" -- are so various and full of effort that one cannot easily make presumptions about him. This year, he lived as Kim Yoo-shin in MBC TV series "Queen Seon-deok", a character which is most befitting for an actor like him. In describing this great general who helped Queen Seon-deok achieve unification of three countries, Eom says, "I can't say that my character is portraying the real General Kim Yoo-shin but I think this man was truly a "big man". He may seem brusque to women and inconsiderate to the general public, but he tried hard and went through agony to attain a big goal rather than a small one". His character was not allowed to show his emotions in the drama, but he recently expressed Yooshin's longing for Deok-man by singing a song called "Only One Person" for a special soundtrack for "Queen Seon-deok".,...More
