The Korea Post notice:

Introduce the traditional food and beverage of your country to the world as well as to Korea at Namyangy Slow Life Festival Oct. 8-17, 2015

(Please share the information with Madam.)

The Korea Post is supporting the 2015 Namyangju Slow Life Planet Festival on October 8-17, 2015, and publishes a Special Report on the Traditional Dishes of all the different countries of the world in its August, September and October issues this year in all its five media units, three in English and two in the Korean language. It consists of introducing:

1. The table-setting of each of the 60 different countries

2. The world food show

3. Invitation of the ambassadors and madams to the opening ceremony on October 8, 2015.

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.


Please boast the wonderful foods and beverage as shown in the above article!.

For participation and further details, please call 010-3388-1682 (Korean) or 010-5201-1740 English.)

Big Surprise

A third-grade teacher assigned the children to write a story titled “My Biggest Surprise.”

Not until the end of the school year did the parents of a girl see their daughter’s work. It read: “I got up this morning and I ran into my mom and dad’s bed room and hopped in. But it wasn’t mom at all - it was our neighbor Mrs. Baker!”

What her essay failed to say was that Mrs. Baker was called in late at night to stay with the children while her mom was taken to the hospital to have her fourth child.

The opposition blasted the party on July 31 as “the real ones hurting security and breaking the law.”Lee Jong-kul, floor leader for the opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy (NPAD), attacked the Saenuri Party over the leaks
