Looks like it is about 50 miles from Seoul and equidistant from the border. I'm sure they are far enough from the demilitarized zone to not worry about Kim Jong Un.

That strikes me as a fairly ignorant thing to say about South Korea.

I wasn't aware of all of the combat going on in this part of South Korea. Tell us about it.

1950's cold war Korea? Ok, then maybe, I don't know.
But I do know these days it's far from what you would consider a combat zone.

I have several friends formerly and currently in the military in South Korea. And when asked, they'd like for me to call you out on your Bull S*it.

I didn't call you ignorant, I said it was an ignorant thing to say. And one of my coworkers from S. Korea would like to pass along his own call about B.S.

Look at all of the tanks!

There was a war in Korea--60 years ago. I am surprised that Disney opened Euro Disney and Tokyo & Shanghai Disneys in "Combat Zones" from WWII.

How do King's Dominion, BG Williamsburg, SF over Georgia survive being located in "Combat Zones?" (Civil War battles were fought in all of those areas)

Not to mention Hershey Park is near Gettysburg. :)

They're really going to have to shoehorn that park in.

"Legoland Korea is running out of room to expand!"
