The Korea Post news:

Even outstripping front-running Saenuri Chairman Kim Moo-sung

Yoo now frontrunner among ruling camp Presidential hopefuls

Former Floor Leader Yoo Seung-min of the ruling Saenuri Party now is the frontrunner among all the Presidential hopefuls of the ruling camp even outstripping the hitherto front-running Chairman Kim Moo-sung of the Saenuri Party.

According to the result of a survey conducted by Real Meter on July 8-10, 2015, Yoo, who was literally deposed as the Saenuri Party floor leader on July 8 under the pressure of President Park Geun-hye, scored 19.2% support outrunning Kim Moo-sung who got 18.8%.

The minor hopefuls following Kim are former Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon with 6%, former Gyeonggi Province Governor Kim Moon-soo with 5.3%, former Saenuri Chairman Chung Mong-joon (chairman of Hyundai Heavy Industries) with 4.3%, Jeju Provincial Governor Won Hee-ryong with 2.6% and incumbent Gyeonggi Province Governor Nam Kyung-pil with 1.9%.

Since his involuntary resignation as the Saenuri floor leader on July 8, Yoo has been extolled by the reform-minded conservatives, the middle-of-the-roaders and even the liberal opposition politicians and progressives.

Asked how he felt being praised by the opposition politicians, Yoo was quoted as saying, They put me in an awkward situation.

The Korea Post notices:

Proudly introduce the traditional foods of your country:

I am pleased to inform Your Excellency that The Korea Post is publishing a Special Report in all its five media units (two in Korean and three in English) to introduce the regular food table of each country.

This is in preparation for the Grand Exhibition of Food Tables of the World to be shown to over half a million people expected to visit the 2015 Namyangju Slow Life Planet Festival on October 8-17, 2015.

Please email to edt@koreapost.com a copy of the regular Food Table of your country for publication in The Korea Post and also at the Exhibition Center of the 2015 Namyangju Festival for a duration of 10 days.

In Korea, the table normally consists of a bowl of rice, a bowl of guk (watery soup), a bowl of Jjigae (stew), a dish of roast fish, a dish of Namul (seasonal greens) and a number of other dishes (small pancakes, steamed eggs, fried bean curds, jelly, etc.). The number of bowls and dishes differ depending on the financial status of the family and on the different occasions. On such festive occasions as Seollal (Lunar New Years Day) and Chuseok (Autumn Full Moon Festival), the number of foods and variety are much larger than at normal time, and each has a specific food item that must not be left out, eg., Ddeokguk (rice cake soup) on the New Years Day and Songpyeon (stuffed small rice cake in a half-moon shape. (Please call 010-5201-1740 for further details.)

Send your news releases and feedback:

Send the Embassy news releases to edt@koreapost.com for publication by all its five media units, including one Korean (www.koreapost.co.kr) and one English (www.koreaposst.com) Internet dailies, which are updated real-time. (Call 010-5201-1740 for further details.)

[Interview] British writer asking why Koreas democracy is still delayed

Daniel Tudor spent seven years in South Korea, and has written a new book claiming the country doesnt have real conservatives or progressives

I sat on this interview for a long time. It was at the beginning of last month in a book cafe in the Gwanghwamun area that I met him - Daniel Tudor, 33, former Seoul correspondent for the Economist. Tudor came to Seoul at the end of May. During the ten or so days that he was here, he had already had quite a few media interviews. Even after he returned to the UK, prerecorded interviews were broadcast on the TV news. If there wasnt anything for this interview to add, I would have just quietly killed it. An interview isnt interesting unless its hot off the press. But unfortunately, the points that he made are still hot and fresh in South Koreas retrogressive political machine, especially considering how the machine is creaking more every day.

408-day aerial protest ends with an arrest warrant

When Cha Gwang-ho, 45, a dismissed worker at Star Chemical, decided to end his 408-day-long aerial protest atop a smokestack, it was an arrest warrant from the police that awaited him. As workers asking for time to greet their coworker who had endured such a bitter struggle squabbled with police officers who insisted on serving the arrest warrant, Cha was unable to descend the smokestack at the appointed time. .

One elderly woman says she indeed suffered forced labor in Japan

On May 30, 1944, the principal of my elementary school, whose name was Gondo, told me he would send me to school if I went to work in Japan and said I could make a lot of money. So I took my parents seal without them knowing. But when I got scared and tried to back out of it, the principal threatened to take my mom and dad to the police station. .

CDC seeking revision of guidelines to require notification of the US bringing in dangerous pathogens

The Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), affiliated with the Ministry of Health and Welfare, stated that Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) should be revised to require the US military to notify South Koreas health authorities before bringing anthrax and other dangerous pathogens into the country, the Hankyoreh confirmed on July 7. .

Pres. Park offloading her education pledge on local governments.

Some of President Park Geun-hyes signature education and welfare pledges - including free high school education and daycare for elementary school students - are in danger of coming to nothing after the government delegated them to local education offices without a source of funding. Even next year, the fourth year of Parks presidency, there is little chance that money from the budget will be allocated for these projects. .

Basic pension a success, but elderly poverty still a serious problem

One year after the basic pension program was launched, recipients are highly satisfied with the program, a survey found. This illustrates just how important a role basic pension plays in welfare for the elderly. However, experts believe that reform is needed in a wide range of areas before real progress can be made in resolving elderly poverty. Basic pension provides a minimum of 100,000 won (US$88) and a maximum of 200,000 won (US$176) to people 65 years and above who fall within the lowest 70% of income earners. .

Galaxy S6 fails to have expected effect on Samsungs Q2 performance

On July 7, Samsung Electronics released its tentative Q2 performance results, posting 48 trillion won in revenue and 6.9 trillion won in operating profit. Revenue was up 2.6% and operating profit 15.5% from Q1 as the company continued a gradual uptick in performance since Q3 of last year.
