With a multitude of potential threats radiating over the border from North Korea, South Korea can not be lax when it comes to security.
As such, Seoul places a premium value on the training and capabilities of its military and police forces. This is clearly illustrated through the para-military capabilities of the South Korean National Police (KNP) SWAT teams.
A 2014 video from LiveLeak shows the incredible training in small arms maneuvers that these SWAT members go through.

Eating out by yourself can feel a little awkward and embarrassing, but a restaurant in Korea billing itself as being just for single diners caught the attention of plenty of passersby. And that’s “single” diners in both senses of the word: unaccompanied and also without a boyfriend or girlfriend.
But while all of the diners walked in lacking a romantic partner, some of them significantly improved their dating prospects while they filled their stomachs, thanks to a special surprise that was waiting for them.

We’ve seen many Studio Ghibli tributes from around the world–some in the form of still artwork, and others in even more ambitious video formats. Today, we’d like to share another fantastic tribute by a South Korean artist that’s sure to please anyone with an eye for some clean graphic design!
Some anime series have complex plotlines, but when it comes to successful character-based franchises, it doesn’t matter so much what the animated cast is doing as long as fans get to enjoy their cute or attractive designs. Really, they could be doing just about anything: hanging out in their school club meeting room after class, eating strawberry parfaits, or even vomiting strips of paper, like at this theater in Korea.
We commonly associate coloring books with children, but some months ago, coloring books designed for adults were all the rage in many countries, including Japan. Grown-up coloring books have been around for some time, but the sudden trend triggered off a new supply-and-demand chain reaction, filling the market with more coloring books for adults than ever.
However, in recent months, a somewhat similar yet new hobby has been silently enchanting adults in Korea with its simplistic beauty. Known as “Scratch Night View”, these scratch-off art projects promise breathtaking night views upon completion, and all you have to do is scratch the special board in the specified areas to unveil the beauty hidden in the darkness!

In many countries where baseball is a major form of sports entertainment, it’s common to see celebrities grace the mound for the ceremonial first pitch. Earlier this year, we saw Japan’s infamous robotic dancing group World Order execute a seven-man pitch which incorporated their signature dance moves.
We never thought we’d see another seven-man pitch this soon, but this group of South Korean performers raised the bar with an amazing gravity-defying pitch! See the whole routine after the jump!
Since their debut in 2009, 2ne1 has been an unstoppable force on the Korean pop music scene. Not only have the members found phenomenal success as a group, but three out of 2ne1’s four members have gone on to have active solo careers as well.
For vocalist CL, 2015 has been an especially busy year, and just last week Rolling Stone named her “One of 10 people you need to know”. But despite this, in a recent photo taken of her and someone else, for some reason CL wasn’t the one getting all of the attention.
The beach is, for obvious reasons, one of the most popular leisure destinations during summer. There’s so much to enjoy at the beach during the hotter months: the sun, the sea breeze, the refreshing water… and of course it’s bikinis and guys with well-sculpted bods galore.
But this summer in South Korea, it’s not just the beach babes and hunks who are strutting around in their skimpy swimwear. Even the world-famous probiotic beverage Yakult is showing off its shapely body in a variety of swimsuits! Check out the designs after the break!
Who doesn’t love a birthday? And while usually the best thing about birthdays is all the cool stuff you get, Starbucks Coffee is instead celebrating 16 years in Korea by giving things away.
To mark this special occasion, the coffee house chain has released a special range of merchandise including an anniversary mug, thermos and, very cool glass tumbler which changes colour as the temperature drops. The color-changing tumbler takes us back to when we were kids and Hypercolor T-shirts were all the rage.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that North and South Korea used to be the same country. On the one hand, you have South Korea, plastic surgery and cute baby capital of the world, and on the other hand you have North Korea, which is apparently constantly on fire, possibly due to “gasoline clams.”
However, many would love to see the two Koreas reunited once again, among them South Korea’s president, Park Geun-hye. In a speech that she gave at a recent meeting, she said that the two Koreas might even be reunited as soon as 2016.
This of course set off a chain of reactions from South Koreans online, some praising the idea of immediate unification while others criticized it – and not necessarily for the reasons you might think.
They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but that seems to be more of a guideline than a prescription for any and all maladies, and eventually we all find ourselves in the waiting room of a clinic or a hospital for a check-up or to get our head stapled back together.
Medical staff are well aware that clinics and hospitals aren’t exactly the kinds of places that make patients feel at home, so many medical facilities have tried improving their drab décor and entertainment options to help patrons feel more comfortable about their visit.
One clinic in Japan, however, appears to have gone a little overboard in the interior design department, and is making many of its patients feel like they’ve walked straight into a psychedelic nightmare instead.
Clothing, particularly T-shirts, is among the most common type of official merchandise that many anime, comic and even film makers produce to promote their work. Few fans have any qualms about showing their love for their beloved anime, manga or video games by wearing clothes that feature said work’s main characters on a daily basis, but have you ever noticed that most wearable merch only comes in men’s cuts and sizes? Even the anime collaboration tees that major fashion retailer Uniqlo produces are rarely available in ladies’ fit.
Korean online fashion retailer Daily Apparel, however, is hoping to change all that by making a series of Pokémon-themed tank tops just for the ladies, and they’re pretty much the sexiest pocket monster apparel we’ve ever seen. More pictures after the jump!
