[SO WHAT ELSE ... ?]So much to do, and so little timeFrom now through mid-November you should get busy -- socially and culturally.
In autumn, Koreans say, "the sky is high," which means the sky is clear and blue. In short, it's a good time to hike and enjoy the fall foliage in the nearby mountains and parks.
Or perhaps you may want to join the many marathons that are being run almost every weekend (marathon.joongang.co.kr).
Artists from Seoul and abroad are displaying all kinds of artwork, be it digital ("Media City" at the Seoul Museum of Art), jazz (George Benson at the Sejong Center for Performing Arts) or photography ("Contemporary American Photography 1970-2000" at the Ho-Am Art Gallery). Rejoice, cinema geeks, the 7th Busan International Film Festival (www.piff.org) belatedly kicks off Nov. 14.
And attention, kids of all ages: dress up wild and spooky for next week's trick-or-treating Halloween events. You can discover whether ghosts in Korea speak English.
