Dear wonderful readers, I first want to start by expressing my deepest condolences to those who lost their lives and were injured in the airport shooting in Florida yesterday. This was another senseless act of violence and my thoughts go out to everyone affected by this horrendous act.
As for my return, I am starting to work on my post covering the New Year’s speech by Kim. That post will also include a look ahead for the peninsula into 2017. That post should be up within a couple weeks at most – currently tied up by extraneous events. This will be my first post of 2017.
As for returning to Daily Updates and other more regular functions of this blog, I am expecting to start those in February. I apologize for leaving out January, but personal items are coming first. As for Breaking News and Updates, those will continue throughout January if anything of note is to happen in Korea.
Thank you for being wonderful readers and I look forward to having a lot of fun analyzing Korea in 2017 for all of you.
Seasons greetings from the author of this blog, Benjamin Zimmer. I want to wish all the readers a happy holidays and best wishes for the season. 2016 made sure it went out with a bang and I look forward to covering 2017 on the Korean Peninsula for you all. For this new year, my resolution will be to post more frequently. I hope you all make some wonderful resolutions and have an amazing time with family, friends, or whoever you spend this wonderful time with. Again, Happy Holidays to all my wonderful readers.
The holiday is coming up and I want to wish all the readers of this blog a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays throughout the world. As for me, I will be posting one more short analysis piece on the current infighting in the Saenuri party, then will be taking a vacation from posting for the holidays. (I know my posting recently has been spotty at best, but I am working on it.) If anything major on the peninsula happens during the holiday season, I promise to write short breaking updates, but that is all I will be doing over the majority of the holiday season. I will also try to get a “2017 on the peninsula” post up around the first of the year, though no promises because life is a thing. As for the return of Daily Updates, analysis pieces and the like, I will try to commit to a mid-January start of these posts. No promises on this, again since life is a thing I am trying to figure out, and because of this I will not commit to a hard date to restart those posts. I do wish you all a Happy Holidays and I am awaiting 2017 and its implications for Korea and the world.
