It’s the new year, and Yim Jae Beum is coming to town! After a sold-out show in Los Angeles last October, he is coming back to hold two U.S. concerts for the 2012 Lunar New Year. Everyone already knows this man can sing! He’s got an impressive resume, debuting as a rock singer back in 1986, releasing Korean classics, such as “For You,” and most recently, joining and winning first place twice on the MBC show, “I am a Singer.”
Seattle and New Jersey, get ready! We are happy to announce that we will be giving away TWO (2) pairs of tickets! Continue Reading »

It’s not just a hoodie, it’s not just a scarf, it’s both!
Korean American David Park founded Scoodie, a Southern California-based company which manufactures the “original detachable hooded scarf.”
We knew there was a need to create a product that would eliminate the very thing that people from all cultures and subcultures dislike, and those are restrictions. So the end result was the creation of the patent pending “Detachable Hood and Scarf Combination”.
The Scoodie is made out of very warm and soft fleece and is perfect for snowboarding and other outdoor activities. We’ve tested it out here at KoreAm and we like it.
The folks at Scoodie have graciously allowed us to choose three (3) winners for the Monday Giveaway and this time our non-U.S. readers are also eligible to enter. Yay for global shipping! To win, just enter a comment below on why you think you should win. Retweet the Tweet for an additional entry.
The deadline to enter is Friday, Oct. 7 at 5pm PST. Good luck!
