Nerine Viljoen, a South African woman who was teaching English in Mokpo, has died as a result of injuries sustained in a November 29th apartment fire. As per the Facebook group:
Nerine passed away at 11:00 this morning.(Korean time) Her heart failed and the doctors could not get it going again. The memorial service will be Tuesday morning in Mokpo. I just wanted the parents to tell the family first and not for family members to read it on facebook. That's why I'm only informing everyone now.

A reader wanted to pass along some information regarding the "Mokpo Pub Quiz," a regular event that, this time, will benefit Nerine's cause. The next one is planned for December 19th, in Mokpo of course; more information on the Facebook page.
