The Marmot's Hole was a weblog by American writer Robert J Koehler dealing with Korean politics and society. It was believed to be the most widely read English-language blog dealing with Korea-related topics.[1] Because of this status, it was frequently used as a source for news stories about the expat community. [2] In addition, many international sources turned to it for reaction after the 2006 North Korean nuclear test.[3] The Marmot's Hole also received attention from Korean media, notably on the occasion of its recommendation for Americans to thank South Korea for aid following Hurricane Katrina.[4] The blog first gained media attention in 2004, with a Korea Times piece on expat blogs. [5] Citing a lack of motivation to continue the blog, it was closed by the owner, Robert, in December 2015.
