I got a couple of hits to my site from a Korean site, http://www.cubemania.co.kr, in particular their favorite links page:
http://www.cubemania.co.kr/favorite.php

I don't understand Korean, let alone read it, so I put it through Google's translation service:

http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cubemania.co.kr%2Ffavorite.php&langpair=ko%7Cen

And got this result:

Twistypuzzles.com
All it ladles almost and cul it is a site which introduces the field.. truth it is many to ladle, cul there is a field.

Jaap's Puzzle Page:
To ladle and cul the laws the field do most plentifully Fall in are the place which is.



Pure poetry this is.
Jaap

Did it mention anything about viewing your pictures with a crunching sound?

Haha, no it didn't. What site/language/translator did that come from?

I often use Altavista's Babel Fish translator:

A lot of Japanese sites I come across translate pretty humorously with phrases like that. :P

By the way, I guess you guys figured out that the guy behind this site is the one who sold great custom puzzles on eBay in the past half a year or so. They're listed in the "Custom Work" section.

He does have some great custom designs. However, In my opionion, the quality of his work could use some improvement. Nice site though.

Reading Korean is actually quite easy. Most people can be taught to read and write Korean in a matter of hours.

Of course comprehension would be a totally different matter...
