Earthquake. Tsunami. Nuclear meltdown.


Praying for the situation in Japan right now. 

On the day of the earthquake and tsunami, I was actually quite worried cos the first thing that hit my mind was the 2009 movie "Haeundae/Tsunami" where a megatsunami formed near Japan and wrecked destruction on the Haeundae and Gwangan beach areas. But my Korean friends and professor were quick to reassure me that Korea is safe because the country is in an earthquake-free zone and tsunamis are blocked by Japan.

So the biggest threat and worry now is what if a nuclear meltdown happens and high levels of radiation leak into the air? Still, Busan is about 1,000km away from Fukushima but weather officials fear that if the wind direction changes and blows the radioactive wind towards South Korea rather than to the Pacific ocean then we could be exposed to danger.

So, keep praying guys.............
