I'll have to check which day it was, but the teacher who replaced me at my former place of employment told me that she's read my blog and that she saw Yie Eun-woong in Itaewon on the weekend, during the afternoon, following a drunken, stumbling foreigner down some stairs (forgot to ask which ones, but I have a hunch). She also told me that several foreigners were standing around watching him, well aware of who he was. Kudos to the author of that LA Times article - he deserves a beer or two (but not in Itaewon - who knows who could be watching?).
I was aware of the T-shirt made of him (and other riffs on it), but not that someone had figured out where the photo of him was taken. Good work, all around.
