    Imnam Dam on the Bukhan River, Changdo-gun, Kangwon-do, North Korea: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=38.4225,127.792222&spn=0.01,0.01&t=h&q=38.4225,127.792222

    Nice job, Ut Videam.

    I might have gotten this if it didn’t pop up at 4:25 a.m. :|

    Yes Ut Videam did get the correct answer. This is the dam in North Korea that forced the ROK to build their own Peace Dam in order to protect Seoul from a flood attack by North Korea.

    That one was easy. The first thing that popped into mind when I saw the picture.

    Spiritual reading for kushibo: Matthew 25:1-13.

    Glans, having attended madrassa church since I was an infant, I’m familiar with the parable. Is there anything in particular that that led you to put that up specifically for me, or is there something you think that applies to especially?

    kushibo, the parable’s punchline, verse 13, “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh,” is the reply to your excuse, “I might have gotten this if it didn’t pop up at 4:25 a.m.”

    I’m still rooting for you, pal.

    Glans (#7), you realize that puts our blog host into the position of the Son of man, don’t you?

    To which I’d respond by paraphrasing Leon LaPorte in #8:

    GI Korea? Jesus Christ!

    kushibo 9, you’re so literal! You think I meant that GI Korea is the Son of Man, so I reckon you think I also meant that you’re a foolish virgin.

    I’m not foolish.

    Korea Finder is one of the most pleasant features of the ROK Drop, even for me, even though I can’t compete.
