Sanghun Choe has taken the time out FROM co-authoring "The Bridge at No Gun RI: A Hidden Nightmare from the Korean War" receiving a special award from the Korean Journalists Association for the report and the book, is working as an AP reporter in Seoul, South Korea, to whip up this steaming HOT delicious bimbap of colloquial dissonance between Korean and American sayings.
I am already hungry for more.

AMERICANS SAY: Once on shore, you pray no more.
KOREANS SAY: The person you are when you go to the toilet is completely different from the person you are when you walk out of the toilet.

WE CALL IT: A useless gesture
KOREA CALLS IT: Touching the balls of a dead boy

BUY BORROW or BURN?
BUY
