From the Korea Times:

New culture: Foreign residents and Koreans salute the Korean national flag during an event to commemorate the 88th anniversary of the March 1 Independence Movement of 1919 against Japan’s colonial rule (1910-1945) at the Independence Hall in Chonan, South Chungchong Province on Monday. This is a symbolic scene of South Korea’s increasingly multi-racial and multi-cultural society. The number of foreign residents in South Korea accounted for 1.1 percent of the nation’s total population last year.

Memorial photos of the nine illegal foreign workers who died in a fire at an immigration "protection" facility.

(The top photo is almost as good as the Korea Times article Migrant Workers Enjoy Their ‘Sollal’, published 4 days after the fire.)
