The Korea Post news:

At Gijisi Juldarigi Tug-of-War Culture Festival

International students enthrall Mayor Kim, Dangjin citizens, everyone

Students of Azerbaijan, the United States and scores of other countries in Korea captivated tens of thousands of people in Dangjin City and other Koreans from all parts of the country and from abroad, including Japan, on April 12, 2015--with their colorful, eye-catching traditional costumes and cheerful, playful and happy smiles and giggles. They attracted the eyes of not only the people on the ground but also of the cameras of the KBS TV drone that hovered over thousands of people pulling the 100-meter long straw ropes of the Gijisi tug-of-war match?as well as the dozens of the foreign students studying in Korea. (List of participating students is at the end of this article.)

Mayor Kim Hong-jang of Dangjin City invited the foreign students in Korea as well as well as the ambassadors and the Seoul bureau chiefs of international media a couple of days earlier to impress them that Dangjin Gijisi Juldarigi (tug-of-war) was 500 years old and must get recorded by the UNESCO as world cultural heritage.

Today’s humor:

Hankuk Kyungje

Man's Advantage

-I’m glad I’m a man, because:

-I don’t get wasted after only two beers.

-I won’t spend hours deciding what to wear.

-I spend 5 minutes maximum fixing my hair.

-I don’t gossip about friends or stab them in the back.

-I think it’s a privilege for me to have a penis and two balls and stand when I pee.

-I’m glad I’m not capable of child delivery.

-I’m glad that my gender gets me a much bigger raise.

(KP editor’s note: Ladies could call the man a ‘male chauvinist pig!’)

North Korean real estate market: sustained boom, or bubble?

Rising home prices and number of transactions show growing marketization of the North’s economy

They say there are apartments in Pyongyang selling for US$200,000.” Jung Eun-yi, a research professor at Gyeongsang National University, was talking about how rapidly housing prices in North Korea have been rising. Jung had just returned from spending January and February in Dandong, China, where she had been tracking trends in the North Korean housing market. In July 2014, the highest price for an apartment in Pyongyang that heard about in Dandong had been US$100,000.

[News analysis] Why is the US taking Japan’s side on historical issues?

It was early this year that the US first started taking Japan’s side in its historical conflicts with South Korea. When Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced at a New Year’s press conference in early January that he would be including reflection on war and ways of contributing to Asia and the world in a statement by Abe to be produced in August, the US praised it as a “constructive” move. .

[News analysis] Seoul failing to break out of its diplomatic dilemma

South Korea is finding itself caught in a two-pronged diplomatic dilemma. Already faced with a difficult balance between the US and China on the issue of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense deployment, Seoul is now wedged in an awkward position in its trilateral relationship with an increasingly tight-knit Washington and Tokyo. Its failure to come up with a way out has many now accusing it of a diplomatic failure. .

A memorial forest to victims of the Sewol ferry tragedy is being planted 4.16 km from Paengmok Port in Jindo, South Jeolla Province. The social enterprise Tree Planet announced plans on Apr. 8 to plant a Sewol Memorial Forest in Jindo during the first half of 2015, with the help of Sean Hepburn Ferrer, son of the famed film actor Audrey Hepburn. “In May 2014, we received an email from Sean telling us that he wanted to carry on his mother‘s legacy by doing something meaningful for the children .

[News analysis] THAAD controversy an outcome of much longer, ongoing debate

The recent debate over deployment of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on the Korean Peninsula is an extension of a years-old ongoing debate over US missile defense systems. THAAD‘s emergence as a major diplomatic issue could stem from a lack of strategic judgment and Cold War-era antagonistic policies from Seoul. The issue of South Korea’s participation in US-led missile defense has surfaced repeatedly over the past decade. .

With payday looming, wage hike issue hanging like a dark cloud over Kaesong Complex

Storm clouds are once again gathering over the Kaesong Industrial Complex.

April 10 marks the beginning of March wage payment for North Korean workers at the complex, for whom Pyongyang has unilaterally demanded a wage hike. On Mar. 11, North Korean authorities single-handedly amended 13 provisions in the complex’s labor regulations. Two of those provisions were applied in late February, .

Japan’s Diplomatic Bluebook deletes phrase about “shared values” with South Korea

On Apr. 7, the Japanese cabinet adopted a Diplomatic Bluebook for 2015 that deletes a phrase describing South Korea as sharing fundamental values such as “democracy and basic human rights” with Japan and includes a phrase about Dokdo being Japan’s “sovereign territory.” Along with the results of the middle school textbook assessment that Japan published the day before, this bodes ill for relations between Seoul and Tokyo. .

[Cine interview] The current Climate of Korean cinema

At this year’s 9th Asian Film Awards, which was held on March 25th in Macau, two Korean film professionals were recognized for their achievements.

Although there weren’t any trophy grabbers, there were Korean nominees in each category of the awards including two sets of performers who joined the festivities during the breaks to cheer on the strong Korean presence and heighten the celebration. But who selects and votes for the nominees and the winners? Out of the fourteen jury members, there were two Korean professionals who participated in the selection. .

[Cine feature] Korean film remakes boom in China

Chinese remakes of Korean films have been booming since the big success of 20, Once Again!, a remake of the Korean film Miss Granny (2014). What elements led to remakes of Korean films such as Blind (2011), Architecture 101 (2012) and Cyrano Agency (2010)? Let’s look into why remakes of Korean films are booming in China. On February 25, the preliminary agreement on Korea-China FTA was signed after 30 months of negotiation. .

Threats of violence from veterans groups derail Vietnam War event

“They’re going around the whole country trying to make us look like butchers of innocent people.” “It looks like those [censored] found out that we were gathering and moved somewhere else.”On the afternoon of Apr. 7, about 300 members of the Korean Victims of Agent Orange Veterans Association (KAOVA) held a demonstration across from Jogye Buddhist Temple in central Seoul and shouted invectives over a loudspeaker. .

Before ruling on prostitution, masked sex workers to rally in Seoul

Before the Constitutional Court rules on the constitutionality of the Special Law on Prostitution, several thousand female sex workers will join a large masked demonstration in downtown Seoul, the first such demonstration in four years. After the court struck down a law against adultery, female sex workers and related businesses have their hopes up, but feminist organizations argue that a hasty attempt to argue for the law’s unconstitutionality will not help the cause of women‘s rights. .

More Japanese textbooks to refer to Dokdo as Japanese territory

There has been a significant deterioration in the way Dokdo (called Takeshima in Japan) is introduced in the textbooks that will be taught in Japanese middle schools starting next year. Among a total of 18 textbooks in the three subjects that fall under the rubric of social studies - civics, geography, and history - the number of textbooks that refer to Dokdo as the “sovereign territory” of Japan will increase from nine to 15, while the number of textbooks that claim that South Korea is “illegally occupying the island jumped more than 200% from four to 13.
