Horror’s Not Dead in South Korea.

Posted by Peter Hall - January 12th 2009 @ 3:12 pm

Time to hit the dusty trail again.  I’ll be in Seoul for work until, possibly, February.  It’ll be my last international business trip on this contract, so its a tad bittersweet on this end.  This time around, however, I don’t have to worry about internet access or, say, armed soldiers wanting bribes late at night.  In fact, I was told at the travel briefing, “You can stumble drunk down the street at 2am and no one will bother you.”  Should be an interesting trip.

I expect posting business as normal, so no need for preemptive withdrawal shakes.  I’m anticipating plenty of down time on this trip, which is why I haven’t finished the 2008 Retrospective yet.  After I get settled in, I plan on capping off that wrap up, as well as getting to a few overdue reviews.  Sadly, I’ll be missing MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D.  A review may still find its way here if R.J. Sayer is to be believed.  This is also a person who, just this second, sent me an IM explaining that he was, “Bitten by a dog last night.  In a bar.”  A review is less than guaranteed.

Oh, and I never did see THE UNBORN.  Wanted to get in a lot of relaxation before the trip and, well, from what I read the David Goyer directing curse struck once again.  Laying on a couch was a much more appealing alternative.  If it is still playing when I get back, I’ll review it.  Same goes for MBV3D or any other greatly anticipated titles that release conveniently every time I’m out of the country.

    To clarify: When I say “girl” I mean “adult female”

    Enjoy the frozen puddles of puke on the sidewalks! South Korea is an alcoholic’s haven (if you could remove the xenophobic locals that is).
