    This is a cute one  from the folks at BuzzFeed: When Star Wars Fans Become Journalists.

    I’m a Star Wars junkie bar none, so this cracks me up.  As someone who lived and worked in South Korea for over eight years, I’ve got a very good feeling on what happened.

    This a case of a native Korean writer who is functional in English but who has only superficial cultural knowledge of Western society. Unfortunately, that means it probably wasn’t the creation of a Star Wars fan.  However, that’s okay because it’s still hilarious.  The cultural divide happens a lot, and it’s almost always funny.
