N. Korean Leader's Sister Blasts S. Korea, US over Joint Military Exercise

The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has blasted South Korea and the United States for conducting a joint military exercise. Kim Yo-jong issued the criticism in a statement on Tuesday as Seoul and Washington kicked off preliminary training ahead of next week's main summertime military exercise. Kim said in the statement that South Korea and the U.S. started the drill that further escalates instability and that the North expresses "strong regret over the act of betrayal by South Korea." Calling the exercise the expression of the U.S.' hostile policy against North Korea, Kim warned that the dangerous war rehearsal by South Korea and the U.S. in disregard of the North's repeated warnings will lead them to face a grave security threat. She also said the Biden administration's North Korea policy of the so-called diplomatic engagement and dialogue without preconditions is nothing but hypocrisy and a disguise to hide its ulterior ambition of invasion.


COVID-19 Vaccination Begins for People Preparing for College Entrance Exam

COVID-19 vaccinations have begun for those preparing for this year's college entrance exam. According to the state vaccination task force on Tuesday, high school graduates and other people outside high school preparing for the annual college entrance exam will receive COVID-19 vaccines from Tuesday to Saturday. About 95-thousand eligible people who made reservations will receive the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at medical institutions across the nation. They will get their second shot four weeks later. Meanwhile, vaccination is under way for high school seniors and teachers as well.


Summit Involving Youth from S. Korea, ASEAN to be Held This Week

An annual summit involving young people from South Korea and countries belonging to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations(ASEAN) will be held virtually this week. Under the theme "Inclusion and Integration for the ASEAN-Korea Community," South Korea's Ministry of Gender Equality and Family is set to host the 2021 ASEAN-Korea Youth Summit for four days starting Tuesday. The forum, which is a part of the two sides' exchange and cooperation, is expected to bring together 100 youth from ten countries to seek ways to resolve COVID-19-led conflict and socioeconomic gaps. The participants will also address the issues of carbon neutrality, non-contact society, coexistence and inclusion among social classes and gender sensitivity.

N.K. leader's sister slams S. Korea, U.S. over joint military exercise

The sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Tuesday slammed South Korea and the United States for going ahead with joint military exercises, saying the drills illustrate Washington's hostile policy and warning the country will further strengthen its defense and preemptive strike capabilities. Kim Yo-jong made the remarks in a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency as South Korea and the U.S. launched a preliminary training Tuesday in the runup to next week's main summertime military exercise. "The U.S. and South Korean militaries eventually began combined military exercises that further facilitates instability," Kim said. "We express strong regret over South Korean authorities' act of betrayal. "We will strengthen our national defense and strong preemptive capabilities to swiftly respond to any military act."


Samsung heir to be released on parole on Friday

The justice ministry said Monday it will release jailed Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong on parole later this week, a decision fiercely protested by civic groups and welcomed by Samsung Group and other business leaders. The vice chairman of Samsung Electronics Co. has been serving time since he was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison by the Seoul High Court on Jan. 18 in a retrial of a bribery case involving former President Park Geun-hye. He was convicted of bribing Park and her longtime friend to win government support for a smooth father-to-son transfer of managerial power at the conglomerate. Justice Minister Park Beom-kye announced that Lee will be among 810 inmates to be released at 10 a.m. Friday in celebration of the Aug. 15 Liberation Day. The South Korean government has used the national holiday to grant paroles or special presidential pardons for national unity. The ministry considered "the country's economic situation and the conditions of the global economy amid the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic" as factors behind the decision, Park said in a briefing.

New infections under 1,500 on fewer tests; cases piling up outside of Seoul

South Korea's daily new coronavirus cases fell back to below 1,500 on Monday on fewer tests over the weekend as the country has extended its highest virus rules for another two weeks due to the relentless spread of the virus. The country added 1,492 COVID-19 cases, including 1,455 local infections, raising the total caseload to 212,448, according to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA). The latest caseload was down 237 from 1,729 the previous day, falling below the 1,700s for the first time since Wednesday. The country added four more deaths from COVID-19, raising the death toll to 2,125. Health authorities decided to extend the Level 4 distancing measures, the highest in the country's four-tier system, for the greater Seoul area until Aug. 22, with other areas remaining under Level 3. The Level 4 restrictions ban gatherings of more than two people after 6 p.m., place a 10 p.m. curfew on restaurants and cafes, and suspend the operations of nightclubs and other entertainment venues.

South Korea weighing all possibilities to help flood-hit North Korea: ministry

South Korea’s Unification Ministry said Monday that it would explore all possible ways to help relief efforts in North Korea’s flood-hit eastern regions. We will leave all the possibilities open, including cooperation through state and civilian channels and international organizations, and then come up with concrete cooperative measures,” ministry spokesperson Lee Jong-joo told reporters. Our basic stance is that humanitarian cooperation between the two Koreas should be separate from political or military tensions,” she said, adding that when the North suffered from flooding or other disasters in the past, the South provided humanitarian assistance. But she said the North had not yet shared any information on the flood situation via the recently restored direct hotline.


Rep. Park Jin urges government to protest China’s interference

Rep. Park Jin, a four-term lawmaker vying to become the People Power Party’s presidential candidate, has urged the government to protest what he called China’s interference in South Korea’s security sovereignty. At a videoconference at the ASEAN Regional Forum, held Friday, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed opposition to the Korea-US joint exercises and called for the easing of sanctions against North Korea. On Sunday Park wrote in his blog, “Wang Yi’s remarks are unfortunately an infringement of South Korea’s security sovereignty and unfair interference in internal affairs.” He added that the timing of Wang’s statement led him to suspect it was a “calculated statement to shake the Korea-US alliance.” Park condemned what he called China’s two-faced attitude, saying that at the same meeting, China had dismissed criticism about continued human rights violations in Tibet, Hong Kong and Xinjiang and had accused critics of “intervention in internal affairs.”


Rivalry between banks and Big Tech casts cloud over state-backed loan exchange platform

The government‘s plan to bring loan products under one platform by October to help consumers easily compare the options available is facing headwinds from traditional banks and their tech rivals in the wake of their already intensifying competition to gain the upper hand in digital financing. The “mobile-based loan exchange platform” pushed by the policymaking Financial Services Commission since January is a mobile application, whereby debtors can browse the number of available loan products and easily transfer their current credit loans to those with a lower interest rate, without having to visit offline bank branches or other financial institutions. Operated by Big Tech and fintech firms in cooperation with the Korea Financial Telecommunications and Clearings Institute -- a non-profit organization under the FSC, which manages several inter-bank payment systems -- the new contactless service is expected to increase consumers’ access to financial services, the FSC said in a statement.

Samsung chief to be released on parole Friday

Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong will be released from prison on parole Friday, however, there are uncertainties as to his role at the country's largest conglomerate as he will not immediately be allowed to officially return to running the group. "Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong has been included on the parole list in consideration of the country's economic situation due to the continued pandemic, as well as the global economic environment," the Ministry of Justice said in a briefing, Monday evening. The ministry's nine-member parole commission approved of Lee's release, which Justice Minister Park Beom-kye later confirmed. "The ministry took into consideration the estimated economic impact of the continued COVID situation," Park told reporters, in explaining the decision. Lee has been in prison since January of this year after a guilty verdict on charges of bribery and embezzlement involving impeached and jailed former President Park Geun-hye back in 2017 was upheld by a high court.


Banking groups on alert over hawkish regulators

Korea's banking groups are on growing alert over the newly appointed chiefs of local financial regulators, who have been sending repeated signals of adopting principle-based regulations. A group of banks and financial firms are still grappling with the aftermath of their mis-selling of some risky fund products, but they have been able to evade sanctions due to the absence of a leader at the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS), after its former governor, Yoon Suk-heun, left office in May. The months-long leadership vacuum, however, ended last week when Jeong Eun-bo was appointed as the final figure to lead the watchdog until the end of the current Moon Jae-In administration. Jeong underlined his strong willingness to fulfill the FSS's supervisory role with a focus on following the rule of law and principles. "We are going to focus on financial supervision based on law and principles," he said in a recent address following his appointment.


Japan PM Suga's support slides to record low as Olympic Games close: survey

Support for Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga slid below 30 percent for the first time since he took office, a survey showed on Monday, a sign the Tokyo Olympic Games failed to boost his ratings amid a resurgence of coronavirus infections. Roughly a third disapproved of holding the Games which closed on Sunday and 60 percent said they did not want Suga to stay on as premier, according to the poll conducted by Asahi newspaper, darkening his ruling party's prospects in general elections to be held later this year. In the poll conducted over the weekend, Suga's support slid to 28 percent, the lowest since he became prime minister in September last year. Of those polled, 56 percent of those who replied said it was good to hold the Tokyo Games, while 32 percent thought it was a bad idea. Japan's slow vaccination rollouts have hurt Suga's popularity and a spike in new infections, caused by the rapid spread of the Delta variant, has overshadowed the Olympic Games with cases hitting a milestone of one million on Friday.

Another Setback for Korea's Vaccination Plans

Production of some 40 million doses of Novavax's coronavirus vaccine in Korea has been delayed indefinitely, throwing yet another spanner into the government's vaccination plans. The American biotech firm is unable to give the go-ahead to its licensee in Korea, SK Bioscence, because it postponed its application for emergency authorization to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Novavax accounts for a whopping 20 percent of Korea's total planned vaccine supplies. The company last week called off emergency FDA authorization from the third to fourth quarter, having already postponed the application in May to the third quarter. "The U.S. government has recently instructed us to prioritize alignment with the FDA on our analytic methods before conducting additional U.S. manufacturing and further indicated that the U.S. government will not fund additional U.S. manufacturing until such agreement has been made," the company wrote in a quarterly report. It apparently has trouble securing raw materials for the protein-based vaccine.


S.Korea, U.S. to Start Preliminary Training for Joint Drills

South Korea and the United States start preliminary training on Tuesday ahead of their annual joint military drills that start next week. North Korea is demanding the joint drills to be canceled. The preliminary training will be four days of crisis management staff training, this year led by South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, with the aim of preventing the expansion of conflict or terror into an outright war. The actual military drills, from Aug. 16 until Aug. 26, are led by South Korea-U.S. Combined Forces Command, and it's widely expected that they'll be scaled down from previous years due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Stock Trading Accounts Reach 50 Million

A stock market frenzy that started last year means that Koreans now have more than 50 million brokerage accounts or almost one for every person in the country. According to the Korea Financial Investment Association on Sunday, there were 50.03 million active brokerage accounts in Korea as of Aug. 5, surpassing the 50 million mark for the first time ever. The number of accounts surged by 10 million over the last five months alone. The number of retail investors in Korea stood at 9.14 million last year, up by almost 3 million compared to 2019 as the Korea Composite Stock Price Index surpassed 3,300 points this year and sparked to a gambling frenzy. Retail investors bought W69 trillion worth of Korean stocks in the first six months of this year, more than the entire amount of stocks they bought in all of 2020 (US$1=W1,143).

Amid S. Korean, US gestures for dialogue, N. Korea signals its “will for peace”

South Korea and the US renewed their calls on North Korea to resume dialogue during the Foreign Ministers’ Meeting for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Regional Forum (ARF), the only multilateral security discussion framework in the region where South and North Korea and the US are all formal members. North Korea did not respond directly but signaled its “will for peace,” sources said. During the 28th ARF Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, which took place via videoconference Friday, South Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs Chung Eui-yong called for “an agreement between the South and North Korean leaders to honor their promise to turn the Korean Peninsula into a place of peace without nuclear weapons or nuclear threats,” the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Saturday.


S. Korea to invest $1.92 billion toward domestic vaccine development over 5 years, Moon says

South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced plans Thursday to turn South Korea into “one of the five global vaccine powers by 2025.” His remarks came while he was presiding over a “K-global vaccine hub vision and strategy” report meeting at the Blue House that day. The government plans to name vaccines as one of three national strategic technology areas along with semiconductors and batteries, with 2.2 trillion won in investment over the next five years,” he said. As part of this, he announced plans to “vastly expand tax benefits for research and development and facility investment” while “enabling domestic companies to maximize their production capabilities through self-sufficiency in the production and technology for necessary materials, components and equipment.”


Yoon Seok-youl sparks controversy by denying there was radiation leak in Fukushima nuclear disaster

Following gaffes about letting people work 120 hours a week and defending poor-quality food, former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-youl has now claimed that there was “basically no radiation leak” from the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan because the “reactors themselves didn’t collapse.” Yoon made the comments in an interview with the Busan Ilbo, a newspaper in South Korea’s port city of Busan, on Wednesday, after a reporter noted that Busan, Ulsan and South Gyeongsang Province had the world’s highest concentration of nuclear reactors and that locals might have a different attitude about the current administration’s plan to phase out nuclear energy. Yoon responded to concerns about expanding nuclear power by defending the safety of nuclear energy. The nuclear energy we use in Korea is different from Chernobyl.

Ex-Pres. Chun Doo-hwan visits Gwangju court in nine months

Former South Korean President Chun Doo-hwan on Monday made the first appearance at an appellate court in Gwangju after he was found guilty of defamation of late priest Cho Bi-oh in the first trial. It was his first visit to the Gwangju Court in nine months since the previous one was made last November. However, he left the courtroom 30 minutes after the start of the trial due to health issues. Arriving in the Gwangju District Court at 12:43 p.m. on Monday, Chun was assisted by his security guards while walking into the courtroom right before the trial with his wife Lee Soon-ja accompanying him as a person in fiduciary relationship. He had a hard time listening to the presiding judge’s inquiries due to hearing issues while exhibiting lack of mobility.


PPP may lose in election by 5% points as of now, says Lee Jun-seok

The main opposition People Power Party’s leader Lee Jun-seok said in a talk show event held at Waterway Park around Lake Andong in North Gyeongsang Province on Sunday evening, “If we have a presidential election now, we would lose by five percentage points because Busan and Daegu have a fewer number of our supporters than before.” Lee analyzed that the victory in the 2012 presidential election by a gap of three percent points was thanks to former President Park Geun-hye but things have since changed. However, bringing up the Seoul and Busan Mayoral by-elections in April, he made it clear that the PPP can win the presidential election if it successfully garners support of voters in their 20s and 30s. His message seemingly intended to give a warning sign to the power struggle between presidential candidates and the party’s leaders at the goal of gathering supporters of the opposition.


U.S. to start booster vaccine next month

Controversy is intensifying over whether to give booster shots to the vaccinated or not between those for and against the measure in countries including Israel, the U.K., Germany, and Japan amid a global Covid-19 vaccine divide. The U.S. that has reported the highest COVID-19 prevalence in the world is reportedly put in place a booster shot vaccination plan by as early as next month. With new daily confirmed cases having exceeded 110,000 for three consecutive days from August 2 in the nation, Washington is pushing to implement the measure to curb escalating transmission. The Wall Street Journal said Thursday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is pushing to conduct booster vaccination in senior citizens 65 and older, immunocompromised people, and those who took the jab during early days of the vaccination campaign last December and January.

President Moon’s Approval Rating at 41.5%, While the People Power Party’s Approval Rating Climbs for 2 Consecutive Weeks

President Moon Jae-in’s approval rating fell 2.6% from the previous week, but it remained in the 40% level for five consecutive weeks. The People Power Party’s approval rating climbed for two weeks straight and managed to extend its lead ahead of the Democratic Party of Korea beyond the margin of error for the first time in four weeks. According to a survey of 2,530 adult men and women conducted by the poll firm, Realmeter, from August 2 to 6, President Moon’s approval rating dropped 2.6% from the fourth week of July to 41.5% (24.1% answered that the president was doing very well, 17.4% fairly well). Negative evaluations accounted for 54.9% of the replies (bad 14.3%, very bad 40.5%), 2.5% higher than in the previous survey. People who answered, “I don’t know” or abstained from answering increased 0.1% to 3.6%. The difference between positive and negative assessments was 13.4%, the first time in four months that it recorded a double-digit gap.


You Won’t Find a Single Female Director in Six out of Ten Listed Companies, Even with Eyes Wide Open

The number of female executives in listed companies is rapidly increasing, but there are still 1,431 companies that don’t have a single female director. This accounts for 63.7% of all 2,246 listed companies. In other words, in more than six out of ten listed companies in South Korea, women can’t even dream of becoming an executive. The remaining 815 companies (36.3%) had both men and women on their boards with at least one or more female executives. There was no company that did not have a male executive. In reality, male executives were the “default.” There were only eight gender-equal companies with women accounting for 50% or more of the board. Companies with assets of 2 trillion won or more will be subject to Article 165-20 of the Financial Investment Services and Capital Markets Act next year, and 118 (77.6%) of all 152 companies have appointed a female director. In particular, 85 (55.9%) of the 152 companies appointed one or more women as a registered director, so more than half of the companies subject to the legislation have met the legal standard.


The Case of a Nursing Assistant Who Suffered Paralysis Following Vaccination Recognized as an Industrial Accident: The First Case in South Korea

A, a nursing assistant who suffered from quadriplegia (paralysis of all four limbs) after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, was recognized as a victim of an industrial accident. This is the first case in which a side effect of the vaccine was recognized as an occupational accident. On August 6, the Korea Workers’ Compensation and Welfare Service announced, “After a review by the Occupational Disease Award Commission, we recognized A’s case as an industrial accident.”


A, a nursing assistant who worked in a hospital in Gyeonggi-do, suffered from quadriplegia and binocular diplopia (double vision) and was diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), related to an immune reaction, after she received the AstraZeneca vaccine on March 12. Her case was made known to the public when her husband posted a petition on the Cheongwadae petition website in April. On April 23, A’s family applied for recognition as an industrial accident, and the case was acknowledged after more than three months.

The decision to grant Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee parole was made after comprehensively considering various elements such as social atmosphere and dormitory life,” Park said.

Hanwha Solutions to buy France’s RES Mediterranee in its largest M&A deal

Hanwha Solutions Corp., the energy unit of South Korea’s Hanwha Group, will acquire a full stake in French renewable energy company RES Mediterranee SAS, in what would be its biggest M&A deal, as part of its efforts to diversify its new renewable energy business portfolio and target markets. Hanwha Solutions announced in a regulatory filing on Monday that its board approved a plan to purchase a 100 percent stake in RES Mediterranee in an all-cash deal worth 727 million euros ($854.5 million). The deal, which includes RES Mediterranee`s 5GW solar and wind power projects in France, is expected to be completed by Oct. 20. The acquisition marks the largest M&A deal for Hanwha Solutions launched in January 2020 by the three-way merger of Hanwha Q Cells, Hanwha Chemical and Hanwha Advanced Materials.


Korea to keep nuclear, ditch coal and LNG by 2050 for carbon neutrality

South Korea will achieve near to complete zero carbon emission through LNG replacement or entire phase-out from coal or gas-powered generation by 2050, according to its action plan for carbon neutrality goal. The country aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 96.3 percent to 100 percent versus 2018 when the country released 686.3 million tons by 2050. For the goal, it plans to completely stop power generation from coal and liquefied natural gas (LNG) or minimize such activities under three scenarios, according to the outline released by the presidential committee on carbon neutrality on Thursday. The committee will collect feedback on each scenario from industry experts and the general public until September. The final plan will be announced in late October after the legislative approval.
