When the male staff shook his head and repeatedly said, "No," she defended herself by saying that if it was a British girl, she"d do the British accent. 



An Asian girl speaks up at this point, imitating a very Asian way of saying "Thank you," and then claiming it was okay when she did it because she was Asian herself. Some of the staff themselves look rather uncomfortable with the exchange.

Folklorist”s obsession leads to exhibition

The Myeongdu mirrors that Korean shamans believed would protect them from evil spirits.

Kim Tae-gon (1936-96), an expert in Korean folklore and literature, spent his life observing the works and lives of Korean shamans, keeping notes and collecting relics. Kim - a professor at Wonkwang University and Kyung Hee University - was known for his meticulousness and habit of recording every single detail in his journals.There are several influential folklorists in Korea, but museum director Cheon Jingi said it"s notable that Kim was one of the few who both studied shamanism and collected artifacts. Kim has followed shamans since he was in college, collecting the paintings and other items that they usually burned or buried underground when they stopped practicing the religion, museum officials say. He wrote 34 books on Korean shamanism and left 200 articles and other texts.After Kim"s untimely death at the age of 61 in 1996, his wife tried to preserve the relics and texts he left behind at their home, even installing a special climate-control unit to protect his possessions. But eventually, in 2012, his family donated his collection on shamanism - comprising of about 30,000 photographs and video clips and 1,500 artifacts - to the National Folk Museum of Korea."Most shamanistic rituals disappeared with the history in Korea"s modernization efforts", curator Jang Jang-sik said, "but thanks to photographs and video clips Kim left, some of them could"ve been restored properly". One is the Namijanggun (General Nami) Sadangje, or the ritual to console the spirit of General Nami (1441-68), who was executed after being falsely accused of conspiring against the government. Museum officials emphasized that Kim did not limit his studies to Korean shamanism. He also traveled to Mongolia and Siberia to examine the similarities and differences with Korean shamanism. One section of the exhibition is dedicated to Kim"s records and relics of shamanism in Mongolia and Siberia.BY KIM HYUNG-EUN[kim.hyungeun@joongang.co.kr] "Korean Shamanism from a Vision of Folklorist Kim Taegon" runs until June 22 at the National Folk Museum of Korea in Gyeongbok Palace, central Seoul. The museum closes on Tuesdays. Admission is free. For more information, visit the museum"s website (www.nfm.go.kr) or call 02-3704-3114.

Faulty Elevator Nearly Leads to Gruesome Scene

Faulty Elevator Nearly Leads to Gruesome Scene

A faulty elevator almost led to a horrible accident at an apartment building in a suburb of Seoul.

The video of the incident, featured below, shows a man as he attempts to enter an elevator. When the doors open, however, the elevator continues to ascend instead of coming to a stop. Unaware of this, the man trips into the elevator as it continues to rise, but is luckily able to escape before being crushed.

According to the SBS report, the defect that causes an elevator to function while its doors are open can be fixed with the addition of a single safety mechanism. Although a 2000 law made the installation of such a mechanism mandatory, the elevator in question was installed in 1999 and was thus exempt from such regulations.
