Uncertainty hangs over joint Korean hockey team as Olympic roster takes shape

The Olympic roster for the joint Korean women's hockey team appears to be taking shape, as a shroud of mystery came over the 35-deep squad on Tuesday.The joint team had three practice sessions on Tuesday, at Kwandong Hockey Centre in Gangneung, the site of its three group stage games during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Korea will take on Switzerland on Saturday, Sweden next Monday and Japan two days after that in Group B. Coached by Sarah Murray, the unified Korean team lost to Sweden 3-1 in its only pre-Olympic contest last Sunday. The team arrived in Gangneung around 1 a.m. Monday, and mostly players who didn't dress for Sunday's game practiced for about an hour Monday afternoon.Then Murray added two practice sessions to her original schedule of one for Tuesday. The first session featured 22 players -- 20 skaters and two goalies -- and that's the exact size of the game roster during the Olympics.

Tougher rule to subject more chaebol firms to inter-unit trading ban

Nearly 30 subsidiaries of South Korea's family-controlled conglomerates may be newly subject to a ban on inter-affiliate trading when the nation's antitrust watchdog toughens a related rule, a market tracker said Wednesday.In a policy report last month, the Fair Trade Commission said it will seek to revise the law forbidding inter-affiliate trading within a business group whose owner and family hold 30 percent or more of listed affiliates by lowering the threshold to 20 percent. For unlisted subsidiaries, the limit is 20 percent.Should the law be amended as reported, 28 more subsidiaries of the 57 conglomerates with assets of 5 trillion won or more would be subject to the ban on inter-affiliate trading, according to CEO Score, a website that monitors conglomerates.

Plenty of fun and games at practice for Korean hockey team

They were whooping it up on the benches. When one side erupted in cheers, the other side gave friendly jeers. High-fives were exchanged, and there was even a case of silent treatment, a prank usually reserved for baseball.These were some of the highlights from a late night practice Tuesday for the joint Korean women's Olympic hockey team at Kwandong Hockey Centre here in Gangneung.Tension? What tension? There may be some on the divided Korean Peninsula, but certainly not on this team -- made up of 23 South Koreans and 12 North Koreans. With each passing day, concerns over possible friction within the team -- composed as it is of athletes from two countries technically at war -- seem to dissipate.

N.K. cheerleaders set to travel to S. Korea ahead of Olympics

Hundreds of North Korean cheerleaders are set to visit South Korea on Wednesday and are expected to root for a unified women's ice hockey team and the two Koreas' athletes at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.A total of 229 cheerleaders are among the 280-member delegation that will travel to the South via a western cross-border land route, according to Seoul's unification ministry.The delegation, led by Sports Minister Kim Il-guk, also includes four officials from the National Olympic Committee, 26 taekwondo demonstrators and 21 journalists, the government said.A rare reconciliatory mood surrounding the Feb. 9-25 Games set in after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un extended a rare olive branch to Seoul in his New Year's message following a year of tensions sparked by the North's nuclear and missile provocations.

N. Korea university learns to cope under U.S. travel ban, sanctions

North Korea's only private university has been learning to cope with a travel ban and sanctions imposed by the United States but could face an uncertain future if the restrictions continue, its president said Tuesday.Yu-taik Chon, the Korean-American head of Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), said he has been unable to go to North Korea since the travel ban took effect in September.And the measure has also affected more than half the faculty and staff of the institution, which was jointly established by a South Korean foundation and North Korea's education ministry in 2010.

Deadly earthquake strikes Taiwan; shelters opened

A magnitude-6.4 earthquake struck Tuesday near the coast of Taiwan, killing two people and injuring more than 200 others, officials said.The ground floor of the Marshal Hotel in Hualien county caved in, causing the death of one employee. Another person died in a residential building, the national fire and rescue service reported. Chen Minghui, a maintenance worker who was rescued after being trapped in the hotel’s basement, said the force of the earthquake was unusual.At first it wasn’t that big ... we get this sort of thing all the time and its really nothing. But then it got really terrifying,” Chen said after he was reunited with his son and grandson. “It was really scary.”Other buildings shifted on their foundations and rescuers used ladders, ropes and cranes to get residents to safety.Taiwanese media reported that a separate hotel known as the Beautiful Life Hotel was tilting. The agency also posted photos showing a road fractured in several parts.

NK ferry carrying art troupe arrives in S. Korea amid protests

The North Korean ferry Mangyongbong-92 carrying the 140-member Samjiyon art troupe arrived in South Korea at 5 p.m. on Seoul’s blessing to temporarily lift sanctions on the vessel. The ship crossed a de facto maritime border in the East Sea around 9:50 a.m., sailing at its maximum speed of 13 knots or about 24 kilometers per hour as it headed to Mukho port on the east coast, according to the Unification Ministry. Two South Korean Coast Guard vessels and two tugboats guided the ship into the port as it neared its destination. Although South Korea’s unilateral sanctions ban North Korean ships from entering its waters, Seoul made an exemption for

Mangyongbong-92 as part of an Olympic overture. The sanctions announced on May 24, 2010 were imposed in response to North Korea’s alleged sinking of a South Korean Navy corvette.

Samsung Lee's appeal puts spotlight on Lotte Chairman Shin's verdict

The ruling Monday that reduced the sentence of Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong is bringing attention to Lotte Chairman Shin Dong-bin’s court verdict slated for next week.Monday’s verdict, which freed Lee, is expected to set the bar for how rulings on bribery charges involving family-run conglomerate owners will unfold. Lotte’s Shin, 62, will face a court verdict at the Seoul Central District Court on Tuesday on charges of bribery worth 7 billion won ($6.4 million) to a foundation run by Choi Soon-sil, a friend of impeached former President Park Geun-hye. The date for the verdict was postponed from Jan. 26. The bribes were alleged to have been used by the K-Sports foundation to build a sports facility.

GM may close Gunsan factory first

GM Korea will undergo drastic restructuring, which will most likely entail the closure of Gunsan operations and much more. The Gunsan factory is the smallest of the automaker's three assembly lines that also include its mainstay in Bupyeong and the second largest in Changwon. The Gunsan employs 1,500, about one 10th of the automaker's workforce of 16,000 and is now on temporary shutdown for increasing inventories.Already, the Gunsan factory is seen as a basket case with little chance of recovery.But the restructuring won't stop at Gunsan and will surely affect other factories because of the dismal outlook facing the automaker. Gunsan accounted for 30,000 of 500,000 units GM Korea produced last year.

Samsung to invest W30 trillion to build chip plant

Samsung Electronics plans to spend 30 trillion won ($27.8 billion) to set up a second chip-production line in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province amid surging demand for memory chips, according to industry sources, Wednesday."Samsung is in talks with officials in Pyeongtaek over a new chip-production line in that city," said a source who asked not to be named.

However, the source added detailed plans have yet to be determined. Samsung held a meeting of management committee members early today to discuss it."The meeting finished but we cannot talk about what was discussed. We talk about investments but the details are not decided yet," a Samsung official said.

41 Olympics security staff ill with norovirus

Some security agents responsible for the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games have been infected with norovirus, forcing organizers to quarantine about 1,200 agents and replace them with soldiers. The committee categorized 41 staff members as "suspected patients" on Monday. Earlier the day, the committee had said three of them were confirmed to have contracted the virus, also known as the winter vomiting bug, while 38 were suspected of having it. The patients vomited and suffered from stomach pains. Some of the agents were in charge of the athletes' village, raising concerns that the virus may affect international athletes who will stay there.

N.Korean Orchestra Refuses to Attend Welcome Dinner

North Korea’s Samjiyon Orchestra arrived in South Korea by ferry on Tuesday and promptly refused to attend a welcome dinner hosted by the South Korean government. They also refused to look around the Gangneung Culture and Art Center in Gangwon Province, where they are scheduled to perform on Thursday. The Unification Ministry did not say exactly why the North Koreans behaved with such bad grace, but they may have been upset by anti-North Korean protests in Mukho port, where their ship is docked.

N.Korea's Ancient Head of State to Visit S.Korea for Olympics

North Korea's titular head of state Kim Yong-nam is to visit South Korea for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, which kicks off on Friday. Cheong Wa Dae on Monday "welcomed" the visit from the nonagenarian, who is practically the only senior North Korean official not to be blacklisted under international sanctions.Kim, who is no relation to the ruling Kim family, has held the ponderous title of "president of the presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly" since 1998 but is purely a figurehead.

Otto Warmbier's Father Coming to Pyeongchang Olympics

The father of Otto Warmbier, the American student who died a week after being sent home in a coma from North Korea, will attend the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics as a guest of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence. Fred Warmbier declined to answer questions about his itinerary from the Chosun Ilbo. The White House invited Warmbier and a North Korean defector to U.S. President Donald Trump's State of the Union address at Congress on Jan. 30.

Appeals court tosses out Lee Jae-yong’s bribery conviction

Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, 50, was freed on Feb. 5 with a suspended prison sentence in his appellate court ruling. In its exoneration, the court said it could find “no evidence of typical government-business corruption” in the inappropriate transactions between South Korea’s top political leader and biggest chaebol group, describing payments as a “component of social contribution activities.” Observers in and around the judicial committee criticized the ruling as turning back the clock on judicial justice to before the 2016 government interference scandal.

Officials accompanying Kim Yong-nam will provide clues to future of inter-Korean relations

By selecting Kim Yong-nam, the president of the Presidium of the North Korean Supreme People's Assembly, to lead the high-ranking delegation that will be visiting South Korea from Feb. 9 to 11 to celebrate the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, North Korea can be said to have shown the greatest possible “sincerity” in terms of formality. But Kim’s symbolism aside, the identity of the three officials and 18 support staff who will accompany him to the South will aid predictions about the future of inter-Korean relations.

Blue House welcomes visit of Kim Yong-nam

Following the announcement that Kim Yong-nam, the president of the Presidium of the North Korean Supreme People's Assembly, will be leading a delegation of high-level North Korean officials to South Korea from Feb. 9 to 11, attention is focusing on the possibility of a meeting between the delegation and South Korean President Moon Jae-in and the courtesy that will be shown to the delegation.During a press briefing on Feb. 5, Blue House spokesperson Kim Ui-gyeom welcomed Kim’s visit. “This is the first time that Kim Yong-nam, North Korea’s constitutional head of state, will be visiting South Korea, and he’s the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit the South to date,” Kim Ui-gyeom said.

Wall Street panic spreads to Kospi, which falls 1.5%

Korean markets gyrated wildly on Tuesday, taking a cue from U.S. stocks’ slide overnight and extending a sell-off from the previous day. The main Kospi bourse opened 2.2 percent lower than Monday’s close and went on to dip more than 2.5 percent in an intraday session. The index, however, recovered somewhat to close at 2,453.31, down 1.54 percent.

Investors fear a more aggressive pace of interest rate hikes from the U.S. central bank, which could end an era of easy money for both companies and individuals.

The South Korean spy agency blamed Pyongyang for hacking attacks on local cryptocurrency exchanges that stole tens of billions of won. Suh Hoon, director of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), said Monday, “North Korea is continuously making hacking attempts to seize cryptocurrency,” adding that “some [domestic] exchange operators had tens of billions of won in cryptocurrency stolen.This was the first time the South’s intelligence authorities confirmed that North Korea stole cryptocurrency through hacking.

Ivanka Trump may come to closing ceremony

U.S. President Donald Trump’s daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump is likely to attend the closing ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics later this month. CNN reported Monday, citing White House officials, that Ivanka Trump will lead the U.S. presidential delegation for the closing ceremony of the Winter Games at the request of her father and the United States Olympic Committee. Trump is expected to attend some sporting events the United States is competing in, according to the official.

The court released Lee Jae-yong, vice chairman of Samsung Electronics, after suspending his sentence. On February 5, Criminal Department 13 of the Seoul High Court (Chief Judge Jeong Hyeong-sik) sentenced Lee to two and a half years in prison, but suspended his sentence for four years. Previously, Lee was sentenced to five years in prison in the initial trial. In the first trial, Lee was found guilty on five charges including bribery and embezzlement according to the Act on the Aggravated Punishment, Etc. of Specific Economic Crimes.

Choi Gee-sung, the former head of the future strategy office at Samsung and Jang Chung-gi, former deputy head of the future strategy office, who were found guilty in the first trial, also had their sentences suspended.

Prosecutors, "Lee Myung-bak Ordered the NIS to Hand over Special Activity Expenses"

The Prosecution Service currently investigating allegations of bribery in Lee Myung-bak's Cheong Wa Dae concerning the special activity expenses of the National Intelligence Service (NIS) charged Kim Baek-jun (78), who was formerly in charge of general affairs at Cheong Wa Dae, on February 5 and concluded that former President Lee Myung-bak (77, photo) was the person who ordered the intelligence agency to cough up the special activity expenses. The Prosecution Service announced that the former president personally asked the directors of the intelligence service at the time to hand over the special activity expenses. Prosecutors have officially cited former President Lee as a key suspect in the case, making an investigation and prosecution of the former president reality.

"Amendment vs. Preservation" "Socialist Amendment": Ruling and Opposition Parties Engage in a "War of Perspective"

The ruling Minjoo Party of Korea finalized its draft amendment of the Constitution, which has put the amendment discussions in full swing. The ruling party is pressing the opposition by turning the issue into a debate between constitutional amendments versus preservation, to which the Liberty Korea Party is fighting back arguing that the ruling party's amendment is secondary and that it is a socialist amendment. Other opposition parties that have supported the ruling party's efforts for a referendum in June are now voicing different views on the direction of power restructuring, complicating the situation surrounding the constitutional amendment.
