End of South Korea's squid habit?

In parts of South Korea, dried squid -- some fully dried, "some still fleshy and semi-soft, like taffy" -- is a daily snack, consumed like popcorn, writes John Glionna from Ulleungdo, an island 75 miles off South Korea's eastern coast.

Known as the country's squid capital, Ulleungdo faces hard times with the squid catch reduced by global warming and overfishing. Glionna follows 72-year-old Kim Yae-sun (above) for a day's work.

Manzke lands, finally!
