No more revisionist history, but Korea is in dire need of a sober, mature, and honest reevaluation of the past 150 years of our history and a better understanding the histories of other people in the region and elsewhere. Less histrionics when dealing with Japan and China, more sober skepticism when dealing with the US.
When I first got here in 2003, I was pretty much a news junkie and was working on a degree in International Relations, so I followed the local politics as best as I could in English. Since then - I can't say whether this is due to getting older, burnout from studying, or the dismal state of affairs the past few years - I haven't paid much attention to current events recently - stopped reading the Korea Times and Korea Herald, stopped visiting my regular news sites, et cetera.
As far as Korean politics in particular go, I find trying to keep up to date rather disheartening. The major parties are generally useless, left or right, and the discourse tends to be a bunch of posturing with little to no substance. I remember getting sick of the old 한나라당 leader (Choi Byeon Nol?) responding to absolutely every question with "This is because Roh Moo-hyeon is too liberal."
