Congratulations!! Have you heard about a novel, "After 9/11: A Korean Girl's Sexual Jorney?" I think it is going to be next Korean American movie. I strongly believe that you will have something to say about it, especially about Kimchi, soju, Dog Meat Stew...including Dokdo's America life in chapter 32.

Most amazing is Chapter 43, "9/11s Are Forgiveness," which makes "9/11" a general noun for the worst disaster that could happen in one's life. I have never seen any writer put it this way. See you soon.

At my blogsite you posted: "Good Hershey question by the way -- it was a pity that Kang's answer was sort of lost in translation." Could you parse for me what the director actually responded? I would appreciate it!

And congratulations on a truly interesting program this year!! My first time to attend but you can be sure I will be back next year, and if ever there's anything you'd like me to mention on my blogsite, let me know, I'd be happy to assist!
