KOREA FACTS: Dokdo Day, Oppan Dokdo Style!

Today (October 25) is Dokdo Day in South Korea, a day commemorating the Korean Empire's legislation enacted on October 25, 1900 to claim Dokdo as Korean territory. FYI, Dokdo refers to a group of small islets located in the East Sea of Korea. To celebrate the day, South Korea's Dokdo Coast Guard made a parody  video of Psy's "Gangnam Style." So, if you're interested in watching South Korea's handsome coast guards who can dance, then click on the following "Dokdo Style" video. Ehhhhhhhhh, sexy coast guards! Op Op Op Op!
