Korea to form Ministry of Bbijim

In recognition of Korea’s global dominance in the art of Bbijim, President Lee Myeong-bak has declared his intention to formally establish a Ministry of Bbijim to develop Korea’s Bbijim infrastructure and promote Korean Bbijim abroad.

The act has been compared by many to Pak Chung-hee’s Ministry of Television Stacking and Adornment, better known to many as MiTSA.  That organization is best known for promoting the career of artist Paik Nam-June.  It is Lee’s stated goal that the Ministry of Bbjim can develop an artist 15% better than Paik per year over the next five years.

The decision comes after Jun Ji-hyun won a lifetime achievement award at the 2007 Parma Sulking and Pouting Festival:

Translation: Jun Ji-hyun, Korea’s pride, representing the 6,000 year history of Korean bbijim to the world.

The initiative comes as no surprise to long time residents of both South and North Korea.  Korean culture places a great emphasis on the power of Bbijim, an untranslatable native Korean concept that represents the sense of injustice one feels when something that never should have happened, happens.

In recognition of the fact that Bbijim stands shoulder to shoulder with Korea’s other cultural properties, the National B-Boy squad will be performing with the national Bbijim Squad at the Staples Center in LA this August.  Tickets for the four hour show, tentatively titled ‘We are B and Bb to the Sky’, are on sale now at Ticketmaster.co.kr and can be purchased with cash, dotori, or KTF points.
