The Korea Post notice:

Why is a genuine wild ginseng 10,000 times the price of a regular 6-year-old ginseng?

Find out during the tour of Hamyang, home of genuine Sansam (wild ginseng)!

Genuine Sansam 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.

'Defense mafia' creates corruption in all three branches of the military

Analysts say the military’s insular and hierarchical culture lends itself to corruption  

Numerous cases of defense industry corruption have come to light since the November launch of a joint investigative team on the issue. With the team planning to continue its investigations through the end of 2015, it is still too early to determine how many more cases will be uncovered. But the ones that have emerged to date are already drawing major criticism from the public.

NIS hacking targeted South Korean nationals in China

The National Intelligence Service’s chief target after purchasing a remote control system (RCS) program from the Italian security firm Hacking Team was an unspecified number of South Korean nationals in China, it has been alleged. The allegations of hacking against South Korean nationals - which is illegal even when they are overseas - is making a prosecutors’ investigation appear increasingly likely. .

In defense white paper, Japan again claims Dokdo as its territory

[Reportage] Area around the DMZ still strewn with 600,000 dangerous landmines

After a cluster of anti-tank and anti-personnel mines were discovered near a village in the Civilian Control Zone (CCZ) in the city of Paju in Gyeonggi Province more than 50 years after they were laid, some are asking how much longer unconfirmed minefields around the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) are going to be ignored. The area around the DMZ, which has been virtually untouched for decades, is regarded as an ecological treasure trove, attracting around two million tourists each year. .

After 20 arduous years, an ‘angel’ leaves S. Korea as a mere 'illegal alien'

It was 8:55 pm on July 19 at Incheon International Airport when the doors closed on Air Asia flight Z2085 bound for Manila, and the announcement said that the fuselage was separating from Gate 117. That was when Roger, 51, a Filipino worker in South Korea, finally breathed a sigh of relief. As the plane took off, the fear of South Korean immigration that had terrorized him both waking and sleeping since his twenties, faded just like the runway far below.
