    Wooo I'm stationed in Seoul with the U.S. Navy! I've been here for over two years and I have HUNDREDS of photos BUT MY SCANNER IS BROKEN!!! I finally had a chance to win and I only have 3 (maybe) photos that were uploaded before the scanner died. Bummer.

    My mother is Korean, but unfortunately I don't speak nor understand any Korean at all and I havent't been there in 10 years- but I'm planning to go there next year after I finish university. Will be too late for this rumble, though :)
