According to today’s news reports, Seoul was shaken by a mild earthquake Tuesday night. Registering at a 3.0 magnitude, the quake was the first of its degree to be detected in more than 30 years. No one was injured.
One of Korea’s top English newspapers, The Chosun Ilbo, reported the earthquake could be felt in regions surrounding Seoul within the Gyeonggi Province. But with Suwon located a good 20 miles south of the nation’s capital, residents of the “happy” city remained safe and sound and wholly unaware of what was shaking northward. I myself was unable to fall asleep until 5 a.m. but I blame that on my youtube marathon of The Amazing Race, not the earthquake!
