Picture of the Day: Taeguki’s In New York

A group of Korean women in traditional costume carry a large Taegeukgi, the national flag of Korea, as they march through the streets of New York City in the annual Korean Parade event on Oct. 3. (Yonhap)

    You don't need the apostrophe…

    I thought so too, at first.

    Then I realized, GI Korea wrote exactly what he intended for a very good reason.

    You think "Taeguki’s In New York" means the obviously nonsensical, "Taeguki" possesses an "in New York".

    Your solution is to drop the apostrophe… making it "Taegukis In New York".

    But that is equally inaccurate as there seems to be only one Taeguki in New York… at least according to the picture.

    Since there is only one, and GI is a smart guy, we must conclude he means "Taeguki IS in New York".

    I will now go on to demonstrate that black is white and water is not wet.

    The parade was Oct 2nd but who cares LOL. Overall it was a good parade with a lot of good food after. Next year I'm going to wear a 외국이 shirt just to play the card. :razz:

    Under ChickenHead's interpretation, wouldn't the correct statement be “The Taeguki’s In New York.”? To me the simplest explanation is that GI Korea, a fine blogger, a brave service member, a splendid human being, isn't a good speller. We all have our strengths and our weaknesses.
