READER MISSION FINISHED!!!!
Thanks to all the people who participated in the contest. I have chosen the winner, and the winner is:……..
Who’s the Winner?
Melly Bay from Italy! In the last reader mission, I asked people to write about prominent citizens in their country that were of Korean descent, that have contributed positively to society. I gave the example of John Cho, for his work in activism. A lot of the entrants thought that they then needed to choose other actors. In this contest it was hard to choose a winner as there were three really great entries. Gina Joy from the U.S. wrote about a politician, Harold Koh, and Jun Takayama from Japan wrote about Shin Kyuk-ho, a businessman. Melly’s entry on Min Sang Cho was especially great because he’s not really all that famous to begin with, and she’s from a country where celebrities of Korean descent aren’t really easy to come by. So, for amount of effort and difficulty, I have to award the prize (some funky socks and ramen noodles) to her. I’ll also link her blog.
Congrats Melly, and I hope you’ll continue reading.
