Korean Blogathon 2011

The Korean Blogathon 2011 is now over!

Below are links to all of the posts in this years blogathon. It was our first year of running the event but certainly won’t be the last – we’ll be back at a similar time next year. Everyone at NewkoreanCinema.com and cineAWESOME.com would like to say thank you to everyone involved – everyone who took the time to write a post and everyone who took the time to read them. It really is appreciated. The aim of the blogathon was always to promote Korean cinema and to highlight the many great sites, writers and opinions about Korean cinema. The posts below speak for themselves – top tens, reviews, profiles, interviews, examinations of themes and ideas – there’s something here for everyone.

Thanks again to everyone!
