  Devastation in DaeguPDF files may take a moment to load

I first heard at 1:00 p.m. on Tues., Feb. 18, three hours after it began. One of my students told me there was a fire in the Daegu Subway, and it had been started by an arsonist.

I have been living in South Korea for two months teaching in Gumi, a small city on the outskirts of Daegu. I was surprised by what my student told me that afternoon but didn't discover the gravity of the situation until I arrived home at 4:00 p.m. and began watching Korean news on TV.
