Travel Journalist required to go to Korea

I just got this in a newsletter from Seoul Selection which may be of interest:

The Magazine Seoul Selection is looking for reporters and writers who can contribute pieces on Seoul's travel and culture scene to major global media.

Seoul Selection
is currently bidding for a Seoul Metropolitan Government program to help foreign media cover the city, and we welcome any story suggestions from foreign journalists, regardless of nationality and language.

Selected journalists will come to Seoul for a one-week stay, and be provided with any and all support they require, including airfare, accommodation and interpreters.

Please send your story idea, name of your media company, resume and a story sample to hank < at >, preferably by Jan 21. Even if we fail to win the bid, we will convey your ideas to the city. If you'd like some assistance with story ideas, please ask by email.

I wish them luck in their presentation.

I'm sure you can't make head nor tail of the rubbish in the first comment, which I suppose was done by a computer translation programme. I'm pretty certain you'll struggle with the korean too so i'll translate the second comment for you:

Hello, I am the korean who wrote the english above. I am afraid you won't be able to understand the words above so I decided to leave a comment in Korean.

Hello, I am a Korean. I came across your blo while surfing the web. And I, myself am a korean blogger. I think your blog is really amazing. And I hope you will pay a visit to my homepage. The address is ..... I wish we could could continue to meet online.

Many thanks indeed for the translation.

Thanks for dropping by.
I took a look at your site, but I'm sorry can't understand any of it. Still, I'm glad you found this blog.

Great title for this post. I can imagine the poor reporter rolling his eyes and saying, "Oh Christ, not Korea."

Thanks Aaron.
I can see from a recent post over at the marmot's
that they are still looking for such a person!
