The Korea Post notice:
The Korea Post is organizing a tour of the Hamyang County for the ambassadors and spouses in a one-night-two day program to attend the Opening Ceremony of the 2015 Hamyang International Wild Ginseng Festival on Thursday 30th-Friday 31st, July 2015. KTX VIP Train will be used.
The Hamyang County has been hosting the Sansam Festival every year for the past 11 years--capitalizing on the cleanest environment in the famed Jiri Mountains (where wild ginseng grew and where the legendry male sex symbol Byeon Gang-soe and female symbol Ongnyeo lived together) and the widely known natural surroundings best fit for the growth of the wild ginseng plus the incomparably high value of the wild ginseng.
In 2020 the County plans to host a large-scale wild ginseng expo. For story and photos, please visit /news/view.html?section=161&category=181&no=1004.
Students packed the grand auditorium of a university where a renowned sexologist was to talk about “Everything You Want to Know about Sex.”
As he was discussing various aspects of human sexuality in due time that delicate phase in sexual intercourse, the climax of excitement, came up for discussion
and he mentioned of a woman who experiences multiple orgasms in a single session.
“This woman reaches orgasm more than ten times in a single session…”
Here and there students blurted out their surprises, and from the back a male student asked, “Who’s the woman?”
Then a female voice followed, “Wow, terrific! Who’s the guy?”

NIS accused of purchasing powerful program to monitor smartphones

Evidence is mounting that South Korea’s spy agency had in fact purchased a powerful hacking program capable of monitoring smartphones and been operating this in secret for several years. Previously, the agency had complained that its lack of equipment for monitoring mobile phones was interfering with investigations and pushed for a law that would require telecoms to install surveillance equipment
Sources: Pres. Park made a secret visit to the NIS in June
On June 30, President Park Geun-hye paid a secret visit to the National Intelligence Service (NIS), where she was briefed by key officials, sources say. This is Park’s first visit to the country’s spy agency since she took office in Feb. 2013.While the Blue House described her visit as a “courtesy call,” there is also suspicion that Park, who is nearly at the midpoint of her presidency, hopes to use not only the prosecutors but also the NIS to bolster her domination of the government. .

On top of troubling reports about exports - a mainstay of the South Korean economy - exports of goods wholly or partially manufactured overseas are decreasing as well, analysts say.These exports fall into two categories: processing trade, in which raw materials and half-finished products are sent from South Korea overseas for local companies to assemble, and intermediary trade, in which finished projects from overseas are imported to South Korea at a low cost and then re-exported to other countries.

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 email@example.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 Year’s 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 Year’s Day and Songpyeon (stuffed small rice cake in a half-moon shape.
