At Ansan Culture Plaza on May 1-3, 2015

Ansan City hosts International Street Drama Festival

The Ansan City, some 26 miles southwest of Seoul, hosts the 2015 Ansan International Street Drama Festival (AISDF) at the Ansan Culture Plaza on May 1-3, 2015 in a three-day run on the theme of City in Action! which is also a slogan for the event.

A total of 61 works will be presented during the Festival, namely 48 from Korea and 13 from nine foreign countries.

The AISDF poses a substantial contrast with conventional street drama festivals in the fact that it attempts to produce new works created through a harmonious merger between the intrinsic artistic value of the street dramas and regional features of Ansan.

Among the 12 official entries are six Korean works and the remaining six entries from a number of different countries, namely France, Australia, the Netherlands and Portugal.

The Korean works consist of (1) AnNyeong (literally, Hi!) created by Creative Group NoNI, (2) Falling As I Lean Against the Wall, (3) Living The Good Life by Ambiguous Dance Company, (4) Pyro Art Work by HWARANG Art Pyrotechnics (5) Donkey Shadow Trial by Art-Factory Comma And and (6) Tempest by THEATRE HADDANGSE. Among the six Korean works, the opening work is AnNyeong.

Among the foreign works, the opening entry is one from France named Envolee created by Aerosculpture Group. Others include the Megaphone Project by the Megaphone Project from Australia, The Poet on the Street from the Netherlands and the Remaining People from Portugal.

Ambassadors and Madams are invited to attend the opening ceremony on May 1, 2015. For our possible transmission failures, please call Tel 2298-1740/2, 010-5201-1740 or send an email to edt@koreapost.com or korpost@chol.com.

[News analysis] In Indonesia speech, Abe makes no apology for colonial aggression

Japanese PM only makes direct mention of World War II, regression that is further complicating S. Korea-Japan relations

In a speech on Apr. 22 marking the 60th anniversary of the Bandung Conference, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ultimately did not express deep remorse or express a heartfelt apology for Japans colonial rule and aggression.There is a high possibility that Abes attitude toward history will also be expressed in his address to a joint session of the US Congress on Apr. 29 and in the statement he will release this August. In the speech on Wednesday,

South Korea and US initial successor nuclear energy agreement

The Atomic Energy Agreement with the US that has served to regulate South Koreas peaceful nuclear activities for the past 42 years has been renegotiated. The new terms still disallow independent uranium enrichment and spent fuel reprocessing by South Korea. But they also open up the possibility of limited low enrichment of uranium and expand the scope of research on spent fuel pyroprocessing (dry reprocessing) in what can be seen as an expansion of South Koreas nuclear autonomy. .

Members of US congress urge Abe to apologize

On Apr. 21, four members of Congress one after the other stood behind the podium in the chamber of the House of Representatives, located in the US Capitol in Washington, D.C. It is here that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is scheduled to deliver his address on Apr. 29. While the official session of Congress had ended for the day, these representatives had asked to make special topic speeches to urge Abe seize his address as an opportunity to make a sincere apology for the past actions .

[Reporters notebook] President Parks notebook says, There are no apologies.

After President Park Geun-hye was briefed in Peru - her current stop on her tour of four countries in Central and South America - about Prime Minister Lee Wan-koos offer of resignation, her main reaction seemed to be sympathy for Lee. It is very unfortunate, and I can sense the anguish the Prime Minister is going through, she said. Once again, Park made no apology and expressed no regret for the chaos and power vacuum caused by a prime minister she had appointed. .

[Reporters notebook] THAAD could mean another bloody battle over land

The debate over a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system appears to have quieted down after heating up the peninsula in recent months. For now at least, the issue looks to have slipped below the surface. But high-ranking US military officials now seem to be making efforts to keep the THAAD debate alive, with US Pacific Command commander Samuel Locklear and USFK commander Curtis Scaparrotti recently saying that discussions were under way on the deployment of a battery .

Another US newspaper calls on Abe to apologize for war crimes

With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe planning to visit the US at the end of this month, major US newspapers are openly calling for Abe to apologize for the war crimes committed by Japan, including the issue of the comfort women. Following an editorial in the New York Times on Apr. 20 that urged Abe to adjust his attitude, the Washington Post warned in an Apr. 21 article filed from Tokyo that, if Abe makes only a cursory reference to historical issues - .

Yellow Sewol ribbons have become a symbol of rebellion

In Gwanghwamun Square in central Seoul, where the families of the victims in the Sewol sinking have been staying in tents for close to a year, there is a large yellow ribbon sculpture that is waiting for the nine people who are still missing. The yellow ribbons, which have become a symbol commemorating the victims in the tragic sinking of the ferry, started with a proposal by ALT, a coalition of university clubs, on Apr. 19, 2014, a few days after the ferry went down. .
