As I was attempting to eat a new dish at the duck restaurant, yet only able to order a fish hae jang guk due to being a single person, I knew something crazy was up by the repeat news footage of something burning somewhere off the coast called Yeonpyeong-do.
Sure enough, it was North Korea artillery being fired on a South Korean island. Of course, I’ve no idea whether or not there were casualties, or what the status is. But I was just issued a state department alert. It’s not a good time to be in the Navy in South Korea, since most of the tension seems to be in that arena.
Two military dead, fifteen civilians injured.
