I will be taking a three-day trip to Jeju Island from tomorrow with the rest of the research group. It is in conjunction with a conference, but there will be some fun and won't be all work. And for some, there won't be much work at all. With any luck, I won't die of dehydration while hiking Mount Halla ...
Welcome to my world! The world you have just entered is a pretty bland one. I work, play, and travel just like any person. I do have some uncommon interests and an occasionally warped perspective. This world has yet to reflect many of my eccentric qualities, however.
My full name is Yoo Chul Chung, and I am not a very talkative person. This is true for both my online and offline lives, which explains why I have not been a big fan of instant messaging or parties. I can’t help it, so if someone dies of boredom while talking to me, please don’t arrest me.
I maintain the blog Stochastic Scribbles, where I write about anything random that catches my fancy.
Haeundae (해운대) is the recently opened Korean movie depicting a tsunami wrecking havoc on the city of Busan.

The title of the movie refers to a well-known beach in Busan that is popular with vacationers.
I use Google Reader to keep track of a lot of feeds, so I don't have to regularly visit hundreds of websites every day just to find that there has been no updates.

I'm trying out Google Friend Connect on this website. I'm not quite sure what good it will be, and so far only a members gadget has been included in the left sidebar. Contrary to what "Join this site" or "Sign in" suggest, it does not actually let someone sign in to this website, which means that one needs to write in names and links as usual when commenting.
For now, Google Friend Connect is only useful for showing one's interest in this website through the members gadget (and who would be interested in my little personal website?). Perhaps one of these days there will be more to be gained from Google Friend Connect, although it may also be likely that I'll give up on it eventually.
I got my thesis proposal through yesterday, although there's still a bit of paperwork left to be done. Now to finish up my thesis by November ...
