It's been a big week in the world of J-entertainment:
- TV personality ‘Becky’ (known for her girl-next-door, IU-like image) had an affair with a married rock star. Her contracts were pulled and made an official apology.
- IKEA in Japan, dining at busy canteen-style restaurants - interesting cultural learning
- EYK new neighbourhood in Japan – Kichijoji
- Dog culture – Japanese people seem more friendly/open towards dogs compared to Korean people.
- Webtoons – becoming increasingly popular in Korea. An alternative to traditional comic books/manga. Can cater to a wider audience. Like reading a Korean drama!
