Too bad I don't have cable

Hip Korea, a documentary series which "examine[s] Korean culture through some of its top stars," premiers tonight (in Korea) at 9pm on the Discovery Channel with a look at Rain. Mark Russell does a much better job of explaining the series than the Korea Times, what with its calling the Discovery Channel "the world-renowned cable channel." (Why does the English language Korean media always have to write a panegyric to any foreign media outlet that gives good press to some aspect of Korea?) Hopefully I can find it on the internet before too long.

Here's the preview:

The last time I was in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, there were so many "hipsters" that it was clear the word was beginning to lose its meaning.

With the conjoining of the terms "hip" and "Rain," it is now officially deceased!
