North Korea is attacking us

Since today afternoon North Korea is attacking South Korea. According to my colleagues here, and what we also noticed, there have always been smaller shootings at the border. But this time the attacks are unexpectedly strong. Please read more at The Korea Herald newspaper. Accoring to my home local news web site vol.at the attack took place on Yeonpyeong island at around 14:34 p.m.

The alert phase here in South Korea is high and I was just informed that some of our Korean friends were enlisted by military. There are whispering voices that say that South Korea is going to strike back tonight. – And I was trying to register for the DMZ tour for this weekend. Luckly there was no space in the bus anymore!
Today it seems as if the moods of the people is calming down. Many are still watching the situation fiecely while others think that the attackes were just pushed by media. I personally think that nothing additionally will happen and that the situation will cool down within the next weeks. But all we can do is waiting and go on as usual.

I will keep you up to date as good as possible.
