I'm outside of the country so I can't gauge the response. Is this something "everybody" is talking about? Is it the only thing people are talking about? In the whole scheme of things, a terrorist attack where only four people are killed is not a huge incident, but when everyone (?) was from the same country — a country that is usually not the target of terror attacks — I could see this being a huge deal for a long time.
Well, to be honest I've been isolated and busy with work and stuff, so I don't know. None of the English-speaking Koreans I've met have brought it up, and just listening to conversations it doesn't sound like it's a huge deal. The biggest story now is the WBC; they had it on in the teachers' office yesterday, and I don't know about the time zone difference, but I'll bet Korea vs. Japan will be the biggest deal. But I'll wait for others to chime in.
It's almost 8 p.m. here in Hawaii right now, and the game is to be played tomorrow at 8 p.m. California time, so in about 24 hours, it will be all over. Hmm... calculating more precisely, figure that it starts at noon on Wednesday, Korea/Japan time.
No Americans were killed in the explosion.
