Nicholson Baker has written a song about Jeju Island. Watch it here:
Jeju Island, a Unesco World Heritage site, full of wonders of nature—called the Island of Peace by South Korea’s former presiden—is now the locus of a large and controversial military construction project. The South Korean government is building a base there, which will be used by the United States to house missiles, submarines, and aircraft carriers, with which to “project force” against China. Samsung is the contractor. This is folly and should be stopped.
