Of all the reporters in Howard County, Jin Hong Park has perhaps the most specialized beat. "All Korean, all the time," said Park, a reporter for the Korea Daily, a newspaper based in Seoul, South Korea. Park is the paper's correspondent in the Baltimore region, which means he is responsible for covering most of the state. When a Korean person dies, gets married or arrested, Park has to write the story. "It's a big responsibility," he said. Park, who grew up in Seoul, has worked at the Korea Daily for nearly four years.

Fox Girl, by Nora Okja Keller. Viking. 290 pages. $23.95. In Fox Girl, Nora Okja Keller invokes a world so harsh, the most essential forms of human connection count as luxuries there. With bare survival in doubt, emotional bonds prove shockingly superfluous. That world lies near an American military installment in South Korea, soon after the Korean War. Under the conditions there -- extreme scarcity, moral corrosion and cultural schizophrenia -- love itself is hard to afford. Narrating her own coming-of-age story in Fox Girl is Hyun Jin, a teen-ager living on the outskirts of "America Town."

Joe Gallagher, of Baltimore, asks: "When I am in Baltimore, and watching the sun set, where in the world is that same sun rising?" At the equinoxes, sunrise and sunset occur 180 degrees of longitude apart. Our setting sun is rising near Jin chang, in north central China. Earth's seasonal tilt changes the geometry: In summer our setting sun is rising over the Iran/Afghanistan border. In winter, it's rising on Japan.

LANZHOU, China - The first time Jin Aiguo decided to confess to trafficking in heroin, he said, his police interrogators were being quite persuasive. They had cuffed his hands together in an awkward position - one behind his back, the other stretched back over his shoulder - then threaded a wooden rod under his arms and lifted him off the ground until he agreed to sign the statement they had written for him. "I would say, `I will sign! I will sign!' But after they let me down, I would try to persuade them I did nothing wrong," said Jin, a 32-year-old taxi driver.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland students at Comcast Center were waiting to explode the moment Jin Soo Kim's three-pointer settled into the bottom of the net for the first time. Finally, with a little less than 15 minutes left in yesterday's 104-60 exhibition win over the NAIA's Northwood University, Kim hit a three. The explosion came - from the students and then from Kim. Though he struggled with his outside shot, making only one of six three-point attempts, Kim finished with 20 points - 18 in the second half and most resulting from slicing drives to the basket with either hand.

"Coach [Gary] Williams and [the] other coaches seemed really enthusiastic about basketball. I felt that Maryland is where I belong."

KUNMING, China - By the time they came to this city's first methadone clinic last month, Jin Yongxiang and his wife were already both lucky and unlucky: They were lucky never to have contracted HIV, but they had been arrested several times for their heroin habit. Determined finally to break their addiction, they stepped into the methadone clinic, but few of their friends had the courage to follow them into the government's care. Jin understands why, for even as the Ministry of Health sought to help him through the voluntary program, a much more powerful arm of the state, the Ministry of Public Security, arrested his wife.

PRINCESS ANNE -- The first kill from Maryland-Eastern Shore's Wang Furong in a recent volleyball match against Howard University barely made it over the net, but that was the idea. If the other team expects power, use a little finesse.Soon enough, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference's leading hitter would start pounding away. It just took some time for her velocity to pick up.Wang and her setter, Gao Yiyang, have used a similar approach to ease into college life in this country.Juniors Wang, 24, and Gao, 20, are the first athletes from China to play the sport at UMES, and it's no coincidence the Fighting Hawks' 10 wins are among the most in the program's history.

Zhang Ziyi has a great "who do you love?" scene - indeed, a great "who do you love?" half-hour - in Zhang Yimou's deliriously romantic martial-arts extravaganza, House of Flying Daggers. All through the movie she's a heartbreaker. It's hard to say what's more exhilarating or traumatic: the simultaneously spiritual and erotic instants when, as a blind girl, she runs her hands over a man to read his character, or the expressions that cloud her face when she realizes that she doesn't love the man she feels she should love.
