BUSAN, South Korea — After a week of torrential rains, it looks like we lucked out and missed Typhoon Khanun which was expected to give us more rain this week. Rains are projected for the weekend, but the weather in Busan can change quickly and the weather forecasters have been known to be wrong on many occasions.
There's some great music planned for this weekend, as well as movies, plays and the opening of a new art exhibition.
