Kozine for K-popped! Singaporeans

My 언니 residing in Singapore came home for Christmas and brought with her a Korean-English magazine called Kozine.

Cute kids on the cover of the magazine

It’s apparently the "No. 1 Korean-English Lifestyle Magazine" that is distributed in Jakarta (Indonesia) and Singapore.

Some useful Korean phrases for the holiday season! (top right)

The dual-language mag has items on entertainment, food, shopping, travel, education and news. The December 2007 issue features Bae Yong-joon and his hit historical drama The Legend (Taewangsashinki).

The mag claims that the drama will start another Hallyu

Apart from that, there is also an interview with the Nanta team that performed in Singapore and a look at the 12th Pusan Film Festival.

There’s also an interesting look at Korean expats celebrating Christmas in Indonesia and how they are missing a white Christmas.

The magazine is free and its official site is still a work in progress.

Hello ezkarelnrold and 3888, we asked out 언니 and she said she got the mag at a Korean mini-mart at Marine Parade. It's a shopping complex in Singapore. Hope this helps.
