The Korea Post notice:

How much do you know about genuine Sansam (real wild ginseng)?

Genuine Sansam (wild ginseng) is believed in Korea to have many times the medicinal efficacy of the regular ginseng, and especially to increase man’s potency of men and woman’s capacity.

This is why the price of real wild ginseng is very, very high, and even today a 100-year-old Sansam sells for tens of millions of Won while a six-year-old top-quality ginseng of the same size is available for mere several thousand Won a root at ordinary market.

According to the Academy of Korean Studies, Simmani (the wild ginseng hunter) enters the intractable mountains difficult of access by ordinary people for discovering wild ginseng from Cheoseo (end of summer [August 23 this year]) to Ipdong (beginning of winter [November 8]) and before they do this they avoid many things to keep themselves clean so that they do not ‘offend the Mountain God.’

Genuine wild ginseng is found growing only at a special spot deep in the intractable mountainous terrain denying access to man, where the humus soil is made with fallen leaves accumulated for hundreds of years and humidity is maintained at an optimal level for the rare medicinal plant in spite of the worst dry season.

Due to such particular surroundings, the wild ginseng is known to have a special medicinal efficacy good for many diseases?such as loss of energy, weak brain functions, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, diseases of the heart, and various other adult diseases.

Sansam is also known to be effective in reducing the ill effects of menopausal symptoms, mental stress, anemia, ageing of the eyes, metabolism, strengthening of the immunity system, controlling the growth of cancerous cells and lowering the sugar level of the blood. The Saponin content in Sansam is believed to keep the Cholesterol at an optimal level and help the creation of clean blood--thus helping the prevention of hypertension. The Malton content in in the genuine wild ginseng is known to be good for recovery from fatigue and prevention of the ageing of the body.

A very rare opportunity for the Excellencies to learn the truth about genuine wild ginseng:

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.

Excellencies might not wish to miss this rare opportunity as it has come for the first time in 12 years.

Doctor's Pastime

The medical doctor who works for a general hospital was relaxing in his living room after supper when the phone rang.

He heard the familiar voice of a colleague on the other end of the line.

“What’s up?” he said.

“We need a fourth guy for poker,” the colleague said.

“I’ll be right over,” the man answered.

As he put down the phone, his wife asked, “Is it serious?”

“Oh, yes,” the doctor said gravely. “In fact, there are three doctors there already.”

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 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.
