The Korean daily media headlines and humor

Monday, Aug. 10, 2015

Your Excellency:

Here are The Korea Post notices, humor from Korean business daily and a roundup of important headlines from all major Korean-language dailies, TV and other news media this morning:

The Korea Post notices:

URGENT: Tour of Gyeongjju Silk Road Culture Expo was expanded to one-night-two-day tour from a one day event and the departure time was changed to 0900 hours Friday morning 21 August 2015 from 0730 hours the same day. Accordingly the returning time in Seoul has also been changed to 12:32 hours hours the following day (Saturday 22 August) instead of Friday 21 August.

It is considered good news because the previous time (0730 hours) was too early and also the new schedule allows ample time to tour the famed Yangdong Folk Village.

A new schedule will be emailed to Your Excellency within today and I hope that the changed schedule would meet Your Excellency’s convenience.

HYANGDAN HOUSE IN YANGDONG FOLK VILLAGE IN GYEONGJU?One of the biggest traditional Korean tile-roofed houses of the nobility in the Joseon Dynasty. It is located at the entrance of the Yangdong Folk Village in Gyeongju City. Hyangdan was built in 1543 and was designated as the 412th Treasure on Nov. 14, 1964. Hyangdan was the house of Governor Yi Eon-jeok of the Gyeongsang Province during the Joseon Dynasty. Yi had the house built for his younger brother, Yi Eon-jeok, who looked after his ageing mother in his place because he could devote himself to serving the King. Hyangdan, therefore, stands for good brotherly relations, filial piety for parents and loyalty to the king. Yangdong Village was designated as the 189th Important Folk Relic on Dec. 20, 1984 as an upper class community. Hyangdan is one of the main tourist destinations for the ambassadors and spouses during their visit to Gyeongju on the occasion of the Gyeongju Silk Road Expo on Friday 21, August 2015.


Invitation to Gyeongju Silk Road Culture Expo

I am pleased to inform Your Excellency that Governor Kim Kwan-yong and Mayor Choi Yang-sik of Gyeongju City cordially invite Your Excellency and Madam to a one-night-two-day tour and to attend the Opening Ceremony of the Gyeongju Silk Road Culture Expo on Friday 21 August 2015, which includes a drama on the noted ‘Korean Buddhist Monk Hyecho’s Pilgrimage and Tour of India and the Middle East’ in the 8th Century and a tour of the Gyeongju Museum and Yangdong Korean Folk Village. Now preserved at the Paris National Museum in France, the rare hand-written book by Ven. Hyecho features various strange customs of living, which include ‘Men and women living stark-naked,’ ‘Tribal community where the brothers share one woman,’ ‘Cooking rice in a clay pot’ and ‘Tribes having no sauce but only salt.’

Earlier in May this year, over 60 ambassadors and other senior diplomats attended the prelude event ‘Gyeongju Student Silk Road Festival’ when the drama featured the “Love Story of Silla Princess and Iranian Prince.’ The Main Gyeongsu Silk Road Culture Expo (unlike the prelude student event) has many interesting programs extremely attractive to the Ambassadors and Madams.

As in the case of the previous (student) festival, deluxe KTX Train will be used between Seoul and Gyeongju.

A formal letter of Invitation will be faxed and emailed to Your Excellency today.

Just in case of our possible transmission failure, our contact phone numbers are:

Obstinate Passenger

Explaining luggage regulations to passengers can often be quite a tough task for flight attendants.

One day a woman tried to board with an enormous bag.

The flight attendant told her why it could not be carried to her seat, but the woman argued that her bag was a carry-on because it had wheels and a handle.

The attendant was firm and said, “My Ford car has wheels and a handle, but that doesn’t make it a carry-on.”

What does USFK’s changing role mean for Korea’s future?

Concerns being raised that the US’s military presence is being used as a counter to a rising China

As the US-China rivalry becomes more defined and inter-Korean relations change, the nature and standing of US Forces Korea (USFK) has become the topic of ever greater debate. Long a stabilizing presence in a divided Korea, USFK is now being called an advance guard in checking China, leading some to fear that a backlash from Beijing could further hamper the peninsula’s eventual reunification. The Hankyoreh sat down with Korea National Strategy Institute director Kim Chang-soo in Seoul‘s Yeouido neighborhood on July 31 to hear his take on the significance of USFK’s changing role.
