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

“Yo, Mom!” one of them called down.
The mother was too tired to respond and ignored.
Then she heard the second girl ask the first, “How do you know that woman is somebody’s mom?”
“Who else would take that trouble?” the first girl replied.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
