Place: The Grand Head Temple of the Korean Buddhist Jogye Order at Gyeonji-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul (see attached location map)

[News analysis] Does N. Korea’s underwater missile poke a hole in Seoul’s missile defense network?

South Korean officials say Pyongyang could develop submarine ballistic launch capabilities within 2-3 years

North Korea will be capable of integrating a submarine with ballistic missile carrying and launch capabilities as early as two or three years from now, it was predicted on May 11.The news had some in the ruling Saenuri Party (NFP) questioning whether the North’s successful test launch of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) means a full-scale reexamination of the missile defense system is in order.

Could North Korea’s underwater missile spark a submarine arms race?

Attention is focusing on whether North Korea’s successful ejection test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) will trigger competition between countries in Northeast Asia over their submarine fleets. Because submarines allow clandestine penetration of enemy waters, they are considered a reliable counterstrike method. During the Cold War, both the US and the Soviet Union regarded their nuclear-powered submarines, .

Former policy makers say all-out war with North Korea is unlikely

Former high-ranking civil servants in the area of unification think that it is unlikely that an all-out war will occur between North and South Korea in the next 10 years, but that there is a high probability of a local conflict breaking out in the West (Yellow) Sea. .

Police water cannons spray the highest volume in six years

The three high-pressure water cannons that the police deployed to disperse participants in an all-night demonstration for the Sewol tragedy on May 1 used 40,000 liters of water that night, police figures show. This was the largest amount used over the past six years. In addition, the police used portable dispensers to spray 719.7 liters of capsaicinoid tear gas (not including water cannons) in the faces of protestors during five recent assemblies and demonstrations, which is 3.72 times the total amount used last year (193.7 liters). .

In South Korea, a war over how to remember the Vietnam War

A “war of memory” over the Vietnam War has been raging in South Korea since the turn of the millennium, a recent paper concludes. The conflict, which traces back to investigative reports by the weekly newsmagazine Hankyoreh 21 and fact-finding campaigns by civic groups in 1999-2000, is pitting the camp of “official memory” against that of “counter-memory”, showing the social reality of ongoing Cold War-era division. .

S. Korea-Nepal fair trade projects threatened by deadly earthquake

Gift of the Himalayas is a Nepalese coffee made of Arabica beans cultivated in the hills of Sindhupalchowk, Nepal. Imported and sold as a fair trade product by the non-profit organization Beautiful Coffee, it is popular for a bitterness that is redolent of dark chocolate. .

Was North Korea’s underwater launch a missile or a dummy?

North Korea announced on May 9 that it had carried out a successful underwater test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile. While the US and South Korean militaries said the test was the ejection of a dummy projectile rather than the launch of a ballistic missile, it seems clear that North Korea is accelerating its development of strategic weapons that have stealth and mobility. .

Artists’ years of support by mother and sister the basis for film on labor’s agony

His mother spent 40 years working as an assistant at a sewing factory, but she did not try to force him to change his dream of becoming a poor artist. Long after his mother told him to “life is yours to live as you want,” the words continued to echo in his brain. His mother quietly watched and supported him as he endured the challenges of life as an artist, moving from painting to video and community art and finally to indie documentaries. .

US professor chronicles Asia’s unknown uprisings

The four-hour opening event, titled “Meeting the Seoul Station Elevated Road for the Second Time: Spring on the Road,” was held on the elevated road between 11 am and 3 pm by the city .

After a drunken peak, makgeolli’s 3 year hangover

Five years ago, the makgeolli industry was drunk on itself. Today it lacks the energy it once had. The makgeolli boom began in 2009 and by 2011 production amounts, sales, and exports reached the highest points in history. After 2012, the makgeolli market began declining. Exports fell from 458,198kl in 2011 to 426,216kl in 2013, and sales decreased from around 509.7 billion won ($466.4 million) in 2011 to around 473.8 billion won ($433.1 million) in 2013, declines of 7%. .
