Re: Winter Olympics

Has anyone who's in Korea been to any events yet? Is there anyone in Korea still reading this forum?

I haven't heard the usual moaning in the Western media about the crowd sizes, so presumably that means they've been OK.

Re: The "48"

By the way, do you know if it's really possible to reach Korea on the ground. I mean train from Europe to China and then boat? Do you think it's very expensive this kind of long trip? It's definitely possible, both through China and just staying in Russia. There's a ferry from Vladivostock to Dongh...

Re: Winter Olympics

German-born Aileen Frisch (아일린 프리슈) was in the Korean mixed luge team as they achieved a very respectable 9th place (Germany won gold, wall-to-wall coverage...) She became Korean in 2016. Apparently she's not a great fan of spicy food but her favourite K-pop band is Big Bang. https://gangnam.com/fil...

Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

How do the Hong Kong teams rank against the teams from Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Indonesia? I know that some of the Thai teams (Buriram?) have some money-bags owners behind them and some of the Indonesian sides get home gate many times what Korean teams draw. Are the Hong Kong sides smaller t...

Re: 2018 K League 1

Yes, your points is right, but let's not forget that Jeonbuk has a great squad depth as well. Can overcome the problems with injuries. It doesn't matter how much you spend, it can happen to anyone, even Man City, who have spent so much on their squad they could have built Jeonbuk a new stadium. htt...

Re: I'm turning into my mum

Have I understood correctly that there will be two levels of play-offs in the top tier, one to decide the overall Nation's League winner and one to decide the team that qualifies for the European Championships? If only one group winner fails to qualify in the usual qualifiers will they automatically...

"1) Bunte Socken? Das könnte peinlich werden. Denn in einem Tempel, einem Teehaus und vielen Restaurants müssen Sie in Korea Ihre Schuhe ausziehen."

Temples don't like colourful socks.

Re: K-League in the IFFHS

It's baffling why they think any of this makes sense, but given Korea's relatively poor performance in last year's ACL (no teams in the quarter-finals and only one team (Jeju) out of the groups) it's perhaps not surprising that Korea has been pegged back a bit. Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal got to the fin...

Re: Winter Olympics

The countdown has begun in earnest now in Germany. Moon Jae-in is appearing on TV ads wishing everyone peace on Earth and the German state broadcaster has 10 do's and don'ts for visitors to the Winter Olympics ; don't wear colourful socks, watch out for the soju, every man for himself on the buses, ...

Re: 2018 K League 1

Many are saying that Jeonbuk has already won the title. Do you agree? No. No team ever wins a title without a match played. It doesn't matter how strong your team is. Injuries happen, people fall out with each other, top profiles get bigger and better offers to go elsewhere, committees decide you c...

I'm turning into my mum

I've tried before to understand how UEFA's new Nation's League is supposed to work. Now that they've made the draw for the groups the BBC have tried to explain it to me again, but I still don't understand. Tiers, groups, play-offs, some qualify for the European Championship, some don't. What are the...
