Welcome to the ROK Drop the leading military weblog out of Korea.
This website has been online since June 2004 providing news and analysis about the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia. This site features the personal opinions of the authors that contribute here. The opinions of this site is of course are our own and should in no way be interpreted as the opinions of the Department of Defense or the US military in general since we comment a lot about the US military on this site. So in other words don’t complain to the Pentagon because you don’t like what we write because they in no way endorse this blog.
