Taekwondo Shuffle

I don't know if you guys have already come across this ridiculously ridiculous video but basically ...
"a group of young men and women mix pop music and a fighting style by putting Taekwondo moves to the tune of LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem.” When the tune switches over to 2PM’s “Hands Up,” the young men and women show off very skillful martial art moves. They spin and flip to break wooden boards and one young woman in particular has no fear of gravity as she runs upward to kick a board held extremely high in the air. The surprising mix of music and martial arts entertained the spectators as well as over a million online viewers".


 Now here's one more reason to be proud to be a Korean and yes, we can do more than just play Starcraft.

An ex-special agent CHA Tae-shik's only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. Her mother, Hyo-jeong smuggles drugs from a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-shik with the product, without letting him know. The traffickers find out about her smuggling and kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. The gang promises to release them if Tae-shik makes a delivery for them, however it actually is a larger plot to eliminate a rival drug ring leader. When Hyo-jeon's disemboweled body is discovered, Tae-shik realizes that So-mi's life may also be in danger.

LiNK Reliance Tour

KASA will be hosting a LiNK Screening for their Reliance Tour on November 10th, 2011 (107 Robinson) from 6:00PM-7:15PM. A short GM will proceed after the screening. 

LiNK (Liberty in North Korea), is an organization that aims to redefine the North Korea crisis through creative storytelling, while providing emergency relief to North Korean refugees and pursuing an end to the human rights crisis. The Reliance is a human network of individuals committed to seeing every North Korean refugee free. 
We always hear stories about the North Korean refugees and how it is "over there" but rarely do we hear real stories from real people whose lives are at stake every moment of their lives.

Human Rights Crisis:
A Cult of Personality:Indoctrination programs to worship Kim Jong Il start in nursery school, every citizen has a Kim pin on his/her lapel, there are Kim portraits in every household, and there is no tolerance for criticizing or “subverting” the Kim regime in any way.

Food Crisis: 33% of the population is currently undernourished, 23% of children under the age of five are underweight, and a near-total breakdown in the public health system has left an entire generation of children physically and mentally impaired. 

Lack of Fundamental Freedoms: The North Korean government prohibits freedom of speech, press, assembly, and association. Not only wrong-doers, but "wrong-thinkers" are punished, the press is centrally controlled, and there is virtually no access to outside information.

Imagine living in a place like this.

Moving hearts, screenings have touched and changed lives; many students and young adult become nomads to rescue the refugees while raising awareness of the North Korea crisis.  Now is your chance to take look inside the North Korean regime and to find out how we're all connected.
