남: [interested] How’s your resort project going?

▶Survival How-tos 1
The Korean National Police Agency reported an average of 18 cases of spy cam activity per day in 2015. More than 16,000 people were arrested between 2012 and 2017 for being involved in such activities. While the legal punishments carry a possible fine of up to 10 million to 30 million won ($9,000) and a maximum 5-year sentence, in 2017 only 2% of the 5,400 people arrested faced any jail time.
▶Survival How-tos 2
Locating a source of water quickly is essential to survival in the wilderness. No matter the outside temperature, the human body is constantly losing water. Dehydration impacts mental and physical health, and it takes only a few days without water for the situation to become critical. Yet, water found in the wild can be dangerously contaminated, so it's important to purify it before you drink it.
