The Treasury said it is sanctioning one Chinese individual, 13 entities in China and North Korea, and 20 vessels owned by North Korean shipping companies. They will be banned from accessing the U.S. financial system.

S. Korean tycoon's son under heat for misconduct

In a statement released Tuesday by Hanwha, Kim Dong-seon, the youngest son of Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-youn, publically apologized for his use of foul language and assault while intoxicated during a dinner meeting with a group of attorneys in September. "If given the opportunity, I would like to meet with the people I hurt and express my heartfelt apology for my misdeeds," he said in the statement.

US Slaps New Sanctions on N. Korean, Chinese Companies

The U.S. has announced new sanctions against North Korean and Chinese entities and vessels a day after relisting North Korea as a state of sponsor of terrorism. The Treasury Department on Tuesday said that it is sanctioning one Chinese individual, 13 entities in China and North Korea, and 20 vessels owned by North Korean shipping companies.

ITC Calls for 50% Tariff on S. Korean Washing Machines

The U.S. International Trade Commission(ITC) recommend on Tuesday a 50 percent tariff be placed on large residential washing machines by Samsung and LG if imports exceeded one-point-two million units.

The panel was split on whether the U.S. should impose a tariff rate of zero or 20 percent on units below the quota line. The recommendation came in response to a safeguard petition by U.S. appliance giant Whirlpool. The ITC decided last month that Samsung and LG washing machines were having an adverse impact on the domestic industry. Whirlpool had demanded a tariff rate of 50 percent on all units, while Samsung and LG proposed a 50 percent tariff on units exceeding a quota of one-point-45 million.

Mugabe leaves legacy of economic ruin, upheaval in Zimbabwe

From widely acclaimed liberator of his nation to despotic dictator, Robert Mugabe's 37-year rule of Zimbabwe has been one of Africa's most controversial and influential. Wily and ruthless, the 93-year-old Mugabe outmaneuvered his opponents for decades but was undone by his own miscalculation in his final weeks in power. He blundered when he sidelined his right-hand man in order to position his wife, Grace, as his successor. He didn't anticipate that the fired vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, would swiftly and skillfully depose him.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Korea Times (http://www.koreatimes.co.kr)

Lawyers file complaint against Hanwha son over assault

The Korean Bar Association (KBA) filed a complaint with the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office, Tuesday, against Kim Dong-seon, the third son of Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-youn, for assaulting lawyers at a dinner party. "We have begun an investigation into the case involving Kim," the association said. "We will send a document to Hanwha Group regarding the details of the case."

The KBA said it would have the lawyers who were assaulted file a compensation suit against Kim.

North Korea likely to harden stance toward China, US

All eyes are now on what steps North Korea will take after its leader Kim Jong-un apparently refused to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping's special envoy Song Tao, and U.S. President Donald Trump re-designated the North as a state of sponsor of terrorism. Song wrapped up his four-day visit to Pyongyang and returned home Monday. But none of North Korea's state-controlled media had reported as of Tuesday whether he met Kim. This suggests that the young North Korean tyrant may have snubbed Xi's gesture to thaw Pyongyang-Beijing ties and accelerated the regime's international isolation amid growing U.N. Security Council sanctions.

A man who threw a soju glass into the windshield of a Ferrari has to pay a 20 million won ($18,200) damage bill.

"A" threw his glass into the windshield of the 500 million won ($455,400) Ferrari. The soju glass shattered and scratched the car's windshield, police said.

DongA Ilbo (http://english.donga.com)

Trump designates N. Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism

U.S. President Donald Trump has placed North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism in nine years in a direct move to go against expectations that the two countries may decide to bring themselves back for long-awaited dialogue. With the latest designation, tensions seem likely to only grow between Washington and Pyongyang. On Monday (local time), President Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cited the killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s estranged half-brother Kim Jong Nam at a Malaysian airport in February and the death of American citizen Otto Warmbier after he was taken into custody in North Korea, as an act of terrorism. The official designation of Pyongyang as a state sponsor of terrorism is the first to be made since 2008. Decrying Kim’s “murderous regime,” Trump also condemned the rogue regime, saying, “In addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism including assassinations on foreign soil.”

Pyongyang will pressure Seoul with freeze-to-freeze deal,’ says Thae Yong-ho

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is expected to put pressure on South Korea around the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games slated for February next year with the so-called “freeze-to-freeze” deal, which refers to China’s proposal to suspend joint military exercise by South Korea and the United States in exchange for North Korea halting nuclear and missile tests, according to Thae Yong-ho, a former North Korean diplomat who defected to the South last year and is currently serving as a consultant to the Institute for National Security Strategy.

LG Uplus launches cloud-based drone control system

LG Uplus has launched a “Uplus Smart Drone Cloud Drone Control System” that controls drones remotely with a mouse click in a control center. When connected to communication networks, LG Uplus drones can carry out their tasks even in invisible areas and at night without any limitation on distance. The cloud-based drone control system will allow flight-control style drone-flying by locating them in real time. Unlike drones controlled by a person with a controller, the entire procedure — take-off, flying and return — is autonomous except for entry of a destination.

Youth Unemployment Soars Despite Gov't Efforts

Six months have passed since President Moon Jae-in came to power vowing to fight youth unemployment, but there has been almost no progress. Job growth is stuck at around 200,000-300,000, and the youth unemployment rate scales fresh records every month. Critics fear the worst has yet to come when welfare policies like the minimum wage hike and conversion of temporary workers to regular employees kick in next year.

Chinese Envoy Leaves N.Korea Without Meeting Kim Jong-un

Chinese President Xi Jinping's top envoy returned to Beijing on Monday after a four-day visit to Pyongyang but seems to have been snubbed by leader Kim Jong-un. It would be a serious snub to Song Tao, who is also head of the Chinese Communist Party's International Liaison Department. China's official Xinhua news agency said Song "met and held talks with leaders of the Central Committee of the Workers Party" but made no mention of Kim.

Test-Takers Face Bitter Cold for College Entrance Exam

A cold snap will hit the country on Thursday when students across the country take the college entrance exam. Temperatures will be normal on Tuesday and Wednesday. But on Thursday the mercury is expected to drop around six degrees, the Korea Meteorological Administration said Monday. Test-takers will have to brave morning lows of -5 degrees Celsius in Chuncheon, -3 in Seoul, -2 in Daejeon, 2 in Gwangju and Pohang and 3 in Busan. Daytime highs will rise to five to seven degrees in central and southern parts. Snow or rain is expected in most parts in the afternoon.

Special envoy returns to China with no report of meeting Kim Jong-un

Song Tao, chief of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) International Liaison Department, returned home on Nov. 20 after visiting North Korea as a special envoy for President and CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping, but there was no word on whether he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The absence of reports on a meeting in either side’s state-run media after Song’s return is being viewed as an odd signal. In the past five years, four senior officials at the department head (ministerial) level or higher have visited North Korea before Song: Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference Vice Chairman Wang Jiarui (July 30–Aug. 3, 2012, as International Liaison Department chief), National People’s Congress Vice Chairman Li Jianguo (Nov. 29–30, 2012), Vice President Li Yuanchao (July 25–28, 2015), and Politburo Standing Committee member Liu Yunshan (Oct. 9–12, 2015). All four had meetings with Kim.

Funerals held for five missing victims of Sewol ferry disaster

Three years ago, students and teachers at Danwon High School departing on a spring trip with broad smiles on their faces and a father and son moving to Jeju Island with big dreams were taken from their families and lost their lives in the icy wind. On Nov. 20, the five victims of the sinking of the Sewol Ferry whose bodies were never recovered were sent to their eternal rest. Their bereaved families never managed to find a single bone of their bodies as they had desired. 1,314 days have passed since the Sewol tragedy, and 223 days since the hull of the ferry was raised onto dry land.

South Korean Foreign Minister makes first visit to China

Minister of Foreign Affairs Kang Kyung-wha arrived in Beijing on Nov. 25 for her first visit to the country since taking office. Kang’s visit to coordinate a China visit next month by President Moon Jae-in signals a second round of summit diplomacy to normalize relations between Seoul and Beijing after the two sides resolved their conflict over the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) issue. Minister Kang Kyung-wha plans to visit Beijing for the first time since taking office on Nov. 21 and meet on Nov. 22 with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi for South Korea-China foreign minister talks,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Nov. 20. The ministry also said the talks would include “discussions to prepare for our head of state’s China visit in December and review various related issues.”

KITA says FTA created 40,000 jobs in America

Korean companies have created roughly 40,000 jobs in the United States since a bilateral free trade agreement between Korea and the U.S. went into force, the Korea International Trade Association (KITA) reported Tuesday. The report is intended to counter claims that the trade pact was a job-killer in the U.S. The trade group analyzed data from American research consultant Dun & Bradstreet and found roughly 75,000 people in the United States were hired by 1,716 corporations and overseas branch offices either wholly-owned or majority owned by Korean companies as of August.

U.S. puts North on state sponsor of terrorism list

U.S. President Donald Trump Monday designated North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism nearly a decade after it was delisted, part of his campaign to exert maximum pressure on the regime to force it to denuclearize.Today, the United States is designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. It should have happened a long time ago,” said Trump at a cabinet meeting. In addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil.”

Fears of soil liquefaction in Gyeongsang grow

After finding some 100 locations with signs of soil liquefaction in the North Gyeongsang city of Pohang, which can cause buildings to collapse, experts say such liquefaction may have taken place during the Gyeongju quake last year as well. Near the epicenter in Gyeongju, we found water flowing some 3 meters [9.8 feet] under the surface, which is unusual because underground water is normally found deeper than that,” Kim Yong-shik, a researcher at the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources, told the JoongAng Ilbo in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

"North Korea Censors the General Political Bureau for the First Time in Twenty Years. Intelligence on the Punishment of Hwang Pyong-so and Kim Won-hong"

On November 20, the National Intelligence Service (NIS) announced that North Korea was examining the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) for the first time in two decades. The intelligence agency also claimed that they obtained intelligence that heavyweights in the North Korean regime including Hwang Pyong-so, the director of the General Political Bureau, and Kim Won-hong, the first deputy director of the bureau, were punished by the regime. The NIS also mentioned the possibility of Pyongyang launching a ballistic missile within the year and claimed that it was keeping a close eye on the North.

Avian Influenza Alert with the PyeongChang Olympic Games Just Around the Corner

The terror of avian influenza (AI) is sweeping the nation once again, as the highly pathogenic AI virus has been detected in Gochang in Jeollabuk-do and Suncheonman Bay in Jeollanam-do. With the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games just three months ahead, the spread of AI has raised a quarantine alert throughout the nation. On November 19, a highly pathogenic H5N6 avian influenza virus was detected in a duck farm in Gochang, Jeollabuk-do. Soon after on November 20, the same virus was confirmed in the feces of migratory birds in Suncheonman Bay in Jeollanam-do. The authorities are making every effort to stop the spread of the disease with initial quarantine measures. To stop the spread of the disease, the authorities have decided to disinfect all poultry farms and vehicles nationwide.

"Trump Never Mentioned a Preemptive Strike Against North Korea"

"You cannot solve the North Korean issue by dividing it into separate issues, such as the nuclear program, missiles, and human rights. That is why we have failed for the past two decades. We need to solve this comprehensively, and the only way to do that is to sign a peace treaty." If someone made this argument, it would be nothing new. After all, it is just an extension of direct engagement with North Korea, which South Korea and the U.S. have both argued for. But if the same person at the same place argued, "That doesn't mean we should exclude the possibility of the use of force against North Korea," then it becomes a whole new story, especially if that person is a former advisor to the U.S. Donald Trump administration.

Korea's MBI to Establish EV Plant in Vietnam

MBI, a Korean manufacturer specializing in making transmissions, will build an electric car plant in Hanoi, Vietnam, jointly with local firm N&G Group.

The government has decided to give support to North Korea worth US$8 million in programs helping its vulnerable people including children and pregnant women indirectly through international organizations. It, however, has not decided when to start sending money and exactly how. This is interpreted as a choice to deflect criticism that it is undertaking an aid project at a time when North Korea is causing an international storm by launching a series of missile tests.

Tourism and Duty-free Industries Hopeful about Improving Korea-China Relations
