South Korea gets its own crop circle

On June 3rd, 2008, a crop circle mysteriously appeared on a farm in Chungnam Boryoung City, South Korea. Pictures of the crop circle were taken by South Korean photographer, 98papa. His blog and more pictures of the crop circle can be found here: Photography is Life! If you can read Korean, please help translate a little! I’m itching to know what it says.

Crop circle in Chungnam Boryoung City, the first crop circle
to be documented in South Korea.


Is it a hoax? A work of art? Hmm…

I’ve spent the last 1/2 hour weeding through paranormal websites in an attempt to find out more about Korea’s first crop circle, but their reports are so vague.

Well, at least I’ve learnt that “genuine” crop circles have microscopic iron deposits lacing the bent plants creating a magnetic field. That lightheadedness people report when stepping into a crop circle could be the iron in their blood reacting to the magnetic field. Of course, this is all speculation.

Heh, you learn something everyday.
