Trump says to meet Putin soon to discuss N.K.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he plans to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in the "not-too-distant" future to discuss various issues, including North Korea.Trump announced the plan after holding a phone call with Putin to congratulate him on his reelection."The call had to do, also, with the fact that we will probably get together in the not-too-distant future so that we can discuss arms, we can discuss the arms race," he said ahead of talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House. "And also to discuss Ukraine and Syria and North Korea and various other things."

Moon likely to hold three-way summit with Chinese, Japanese leaders in May: official

South Korean President Moon Jae-in will likely hold a three-way summit with Chinese and Japanese leaders in early May, an official from Seoul's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Wednesday."It is true the countries are moving to hold the South Korea-China-Japan summit in early May," the official told reporters, asking not to be identified.The remarks partly confirmed an earlier report that the three countries have agreed to hold the three-way meeting in Tokyo around May 8-9. The Cheong Wa Dae official said no date has been set while noting his country may want to avoid holding the meeting around May 9, which marks the first anniversary of Moon's election to office.

Smartphone makers offer discriminative warranty services in S. Korea

The quality of smartphone manufacturers' warranty services provided in South Korea fall behind those of other countries despite the average sales prices being higher here, industry watchers said Tuesday.Samsung Electronics Co. is currently preparing the launch of the so-called Samsung Mobile Care service in South Korea, where users can extend a warranty period for a year, and receive discounts in replacement of batteries and displays. Subscriptions to the service come with a monthly fee of 5,300 won (US$4.93).The South Korean tech giant, however, has been offering a similar "Butler Service" in China since last year. The program has a shorter warranty period, but includes free display replacement. An official from Samsung said the company decided to roll out a more aggressive marketing program in China to expand market share.

S. Korea Seeks 3-way Summit with China, Japan in Early May

The presidential office says it is seeking to hold a three-way summit among South Korea, China and Japan in early May. A senior presidential official confirmed to reporters on Wednesday that efforts are being made to open the summit in early May. However, he was quick to add that a definitive date has yet to be set, saying that Seoul has many factors to consider, including a ceremony marking the first anniversary of President Moon Jae-in’s inauguration. The top office also denied some media reports that the South Korean military had announced that the joint South Korea-U.S. military drills would be conducted for one month in April when in fact they would run through mid-May. The official explained that in the case of the Foal Eagle exercise, there are a series of drills that the U.S. and South Korean military conduct on their own which would go beyond April but drills that are jointly conducted will be carried out for one month.

Trump Congratulates Putin on His Reelection

U.S. President Donald Trump has congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his reelection and stressed the importance of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. The White House said that in a telephone conversation on Tuesday, Trump and Putin discussed bilateral relations and the need to continue dialogue on key security priorities and challenges. They also confirmed the need for cooperation on strategic stability. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office that he congratulated Putin on “his electoral victory,” adding that he and the Russian president would get together “in the not-too-distant future.”Trump said he intends to meet with Putin to discuss various issues, including Ukraine, Syria, North Korea and an arms race that is “getting out of control.”

1.5 Track Meeting in Finland Centers on Upcoming Summits

The two Koreas and the U.S. have extensively discussed the upcoming inter-Korean and North Korea-U.S. summits during a one-point-five track meeting in Finland. The rare "one-point-five track" meeting was held on Tuesday in the official residence of the Finnish prime minister, located north of Helsinki, under heavy security, apparently requested by the North Korean participants. The meeting saw the participation of senior North Korean diplomat Choe Kang-il, former U.S. ambassador to South Korea Kathleen Stephens and Chairman Baek Jong-chun of South Korea's Sejong Institute.Participants are said to have held talks on a broad range of issues amid a smooth atmosphere without set agendas, including what efforts are required to successfully hold the upcoming summits.

Moon likely to hold three-way summit with Chinese, Japanese leaders in May: official

South Korean President Moon Jae-in will likely hold a three-way summit with Chinese and Japanese leaders in early May, an official from Seoul's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Wednesday."It is true the countries are moving to hold the South Korea-China-Japan summit in early May," the official told reporters, asking not to be identified.The remarks partly confirmed an earlier report that the three countries have agreed to hold the three-way meeting in Tokyo around May 8-9.The Cheong Wa Dae official said no date has been set while noting his country may want to avoid holding the meeting around May 9, which marks the first anniversary of Moon's election to office.The three-way summit was last held in Seoul in November 2015. It has since been stalled largely due to what Seoul and Beijing see as Tokyo's attempt to whitewash its wartime atrocities against its Asian neighbors.

Trump says to meet Putin soon to discuss N.K.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he plans to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in the "not-too-distant" future to discuss various issues, including North Korea.Trump announced the plan after holding a phone call with Putin to congratulate him on his reelection."The call had to do, also, with the fact that we will probably get together in the not-too-distant future so that we can discuss arms, we can discuss the arms race," he said ahead of talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House. "And also to discuss Ukraine and Syria and North Korea and various other things."The White House said in a readout of the call that Trump "emphasized the importance of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula."Russia has been a key player in international efforts to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. It serves as a permanent veto-wielding member of the U.N. Security Council and last year backed three sanctions resolutions against Pyongyang in response to its sixth nuclear test and three intercontinental ballistic missile launches.

S. Korea bolsters efforts to attract foreign tourists for spring

South Korea is beefing up efforts to attract foreign tourists in line with the upcoming flowering season, the country's tourism promotion agency said Wednesday. The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) said it has developed various programs targeting foreign visitors during April and May, and has been actively promoting them at their overseas branches in Asia and the Middle East, in particular. Some 15,000 foreigners are expected to visit South Korea via the tour programs, according to the tourism promotion agency.The programs range from an eight-day luxury trip, costing some 4 million won (US$3,700) per person, to those planning to visit Yeouido district, a popular spot for viewing cherry blossoms in Seoul, it said. "South Korea's spring flowers are very competitive as a seasonal tourism product, along with snow, in the Asian and Middle Eastern markets," a KTO official said.

South Korea, China, Japan to hold summit in May: report

South Korea has agreed with China and Japan to hold a three-way summit in May to discuss ways to boost economic, environmental and cultural cooperation, Japan’s Kyodo News Agency reported Tuesday.The summit is to be chaired by Japan and attended by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, possibly on May 8-9, the report said.The last such trilateral summit was held about two years ago in November 2015 in Seoul. Moon would be the first South Korean president to visit Japan since former President Lee Myung-bak’s did so in December 2011.

Moon seeks ‘direct democracy’ though Constitution amendment

Cheong Wa Dae on Tuesday revealed the first part of the government’s Constitution amendment bill that would strengthen the basic rights and power of the people. “The amendment must be centered on the people,” Cho Kuk, senior presidential secretary for civil affairs, said in introducing the proposed changes, adding that the candlelight protests had shown the people’s desire for “direct democracy,” and the desire to exercise their sovereignty.“Therefore, the amendment must be about expanding the rights of the people by guaranteeing quality of life, freedom and safety of the people, and expanding direct democracy.”

S. Korea, US issue different statements on resumption of joint drills

The South Korean military and US Pentagon on Tuesday issued differing statements regarding the duration of their upcoming joint military exercises, raising suspicions of an attempt by Seoul to contain possible fallout from the resumption of the drills.According to the Ministry of National Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff, the postponed joint military exercises will start on April 1, with the field-training Foal Eagle exercise that is to be halved in length from two months to one followed about three weeks later by the computer-based Key Resolve exercise. The Pentagon and Combined Forces Command in Seoul, however, stressed that the upcoming drills would be held at the same scale and duration as previous iterations, with no mention that the length of the Foal Eagle exercise would be halved.

South Korea to send 160-member art troupe to North Korea

The two Koreas agreed Tuesday that a 160-member performance troupe from the South will perform two times in Pyongyang in April.The troupe will visit the North from March 31 to April 3 and perform twice, once each at the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre and the Ryugyong Chung Ju-yung Gymnasium in Pyongyang. They are likely to hold the performances April 1 and 3, but these dates are tentative, according to the Ministry of Unification.The troupe will include older and younger generation Korean pop musicians, including Cho Yong-pil, Lee Sun-hee, Girls' Generation's Seohyun and girl band Red Velvet.

Foreigners-only casinos hit hard by THAAD row

Foreigners-only casinos in South Korea have taken a big hit from the fallout of a diplomatic row between Seoul and Beijing over the deployment of an advanced missile defense shield here, industry sources said Wednesday.In March last year, China banned the sale of package tours to South Korea and took other retaliatory measures against South Korean companies following the installation of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery in southeastern South Korea.The move has led to a tumble in the number of Chinese tourists to South Korea, battering the local tourism industry and South Korean companies that have made forays into the world's second-largest economy.According to the sources, casino operator Paradise registered consolidated sales of 668 billion won (US$623 million) in 2017, down 3.9 percent from the previous year.

US-ROK drills to minimize deployment of strategic assets

The upcoming joint military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea will minimize the deployment of U.S. strategic assets such as nuclear subs and strategic bombers.In a brief statement, the defense ministry said on Tuesday the drills, which had been delayed until after the Winter Olympics and Paralympics, will begin on April 1, on "a scale similar to previous years."It did not provide details on what assets will be deployed or state how long the drills will last in comparison to previous years.The United Nations Command notified the North Korean military of the plan the same day, and that the drills would be held as a regular exercise for defense purposes, the ministry said.The Foal Eagle exercise will reportedly be held for one month ― compared to the usual two-month duration. The Key Resolve drills have usually been held for two weeks.

S.Korean Artists to Give 2 Performances in Pyongyang

About 160 South Korean artists including veteran pop singers Cho Yong-pil and Lee Sun-hee and girl group Red Velvet will give two performances in Pyongyang in early April, according to the Unification Ministry on Tuesday.The two Koreas issued a joint press release after cross-border talks in the truce village of Panmunjom that day.The South Koreans will perform in Pyongyang between March 31 and April 3. Other performers include Choi Jin-hee, Yoon Do-hyun, Baek Ji-young, Jung In, Seohyun, and Ali.It will be the first performance by South Korean artists in North Korea in 16 years. Cho, Lee, and Yoon have performed there before.Cho gave a solo performance in August 2005, and Lee performed there in 2003.

All-Night Opening on the Wane Due to Lack of Customers

The bright lights illuminating Korean cities at night are going out one by one due to lack of customers in the establishments that advertise themselves in neon. More and more convenience stores and fast-food restaurants that opened 24 hours are reducing their hours of operation, while a growing number of bars are opting to stop serving drinks at midnight. Part of the trend is a growing awareness of work-life balance among Koreans and a consequent drop in night-time activities. On top of that, the minimum wage hike is prompting owners to close down early due to soaring overhead costs.

Korea to Slash the Number of Top Brass

The Defense Ministry wants to slash about 100 generals over the next four years from the top-heavy roster of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, according to a government source on Monday. About 90 generals will be lost to the Army alone, which has a whopping 313. The ministry plans to put the reduction plan in a report to Cheong Wa Dae next month after gathering opinions in the military this month. "The Moon Jae-in administration originally sought to cut the number of top brass by about 80 as part of a defense reform plan," the source said. "But Defense Minister Song Young-moo wants to slash another 20 Army generals."The plan is focused on the Army, which is seen as wielding undue clout and enjoying undue privileges in the military overall. Little resistance is expected because the ministry has already been carrying out a reform plan that aims to cut troop numbers by 118,000 to around 500,000 and revamp military organizations by 2022, which means many command positions will disappear anyway.

Prosecutors explain that Lee Myung-bak’s arrest was “based on law and principle”

While explaining Prosecutor General Moon Moo-il’s decision to request a detention warrant against former president Lee Myung-bak on Mar. 19, the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office emphasized in particular that this was “a judgment based on law and principle.” Justice Minister Park Sang-ki expressed the view that it was “desirable for Lee not to be detained during the investigation and trial in light of the nation’s prestige and image overseas,” but the prosecutors explained that they had no choice but to follow the letter of the law because of “the gravity of the matter and the possibility of evidence being destroyed.”

President Moon to submit constitutional amendment bill next week

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has decided to submit a constitutional amendment bill on Mar. 26 that would give presidents up to two consecutive four-year terms, expand individual rights and increase the centralization of power. Moon intends to have Blue House Secretary for Civil Affairs Cho Kuk provide a detailed briefing of the constitutional amendment bill to persuade the public of its validity starting on Mar. 20 and lasting for three days before submitting the bill.This means that the bill will be submitted five days later than the Blue House’s initial schedule of Mar. 21. Moon had publicly declared that he would hold a national referendum on a presidential bill during the local elections on June 13 following a vote in the National Assembly if the National Assembly failed to agree on its own constitutional amendment bill for the referendum. But with the presidential bill unlikely to pass the National Assembly because of sharp resistance from the Liberty Korea Party, the country’s most powerful opposition party, Moon appears to have adjusted the bill submission schedule as a political gambit to use a national public relations campaign to bring the National Assembly to a consensus on a constitutional reform bill.

Korean, US, and Japanese National Security Advisors discuss plans for denuclearization in advance of spring summits

Blue House National Security Office director Chung Eui-yong discussed plans for the Korean Peninsula’s “complete denuclearization” at two days of meetings with his US and Japanese counterparts in San Francisco on Mar. 17–18, the Blue House reported on Mar. 19.This marks the first confirmed meeting of senior officials from the three sides for coordination since Pyongyang agreed to hold an inter-Korean summit in late April and North Korea-US summit in May.“Chung Eui-yong met with US National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster and Japanese National Security Advisor Shotaro Yachi in San Francisco on Mar. 17–18 for trilateral discussions among national security office directors on the Korean Peninsula’s total denuclearization and the inter-Korean and US-North Korea summits,” Blue House spokesperson Kim Eui-kyum announced that morning.“The participants agreed that it was important not to repeat past failures and decided to continue cooperating closely over the coming weeks,” Kim added.

Moon discloses his changes to the Constitution

The Blue House on Monday made public a part of President Moon Jae-in’s bill to amend the Constitution, aimed at expanding basic rights of the people and deepening Korea’s democracy. “The upcoming constitutional amendments must be centered on the people,” Cho Kuk, senior presidential secretary for civil affairs, said in a media conference outlining Moon’s proposals. “The amendments must expand basic rights to guarantee freedom, safety and quality of life to the people and broaden the people’s rights such as expansion of direct democracy.” Moon has vowed to submit his constitutional amendment bill to the National Assembly next Monday, based on a timeline to hold a national referendum along with local elections on June 13. The Blue House promised to disclose details of the bill over three days starting Tuesday.

Postponed joint U.S.-Korea drills start April 1

The United States and South Korea will resume their annual combined exercises on April 1 on a scale similar to those of previous years, the Ministry of National Defense announced Tuesday.The ministry said the United Nations Command informed North Korea about the schedule Tuesday and the “defensive nature” of the exercises, code-named Foal Eagle and Key Resolve, at the truce village of Panmunjom, which straddles the border. The news was also relayed through a recently restored military hotline connecting the two countries along the west coast.

Mnuchin told Korean view of new steel tariffs

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin discussed steel tariffs with South Korean Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon in Buenos Aires and said he’d convey Seoul’s worries back to the White House.According to the Korean Finance Ministry, the two economic chiefs held a meeting in Buenos Aires on Monday on the sidelines of the G-20 Finance Ministers meeting and discussed a wide range of topics including the 25 percent steel tariffs that will go into effect at the end of this week.Kim and Mnuchin agreed on the positive effect of the Winter Olympics on negotiations about North Korea’s nuclear threats, easing geopolitical risks on the Peninsula.

Prosecutors Claim "Risk of Destroying Evidence" and Request an Arrest Warrant for Lee Myung-bak on Bribery Charges

On March 19, prosecutors requested an arrest warrant for former President Lee Myung-bak (77, illustration) for allegedly receiving 11 billion won in bribes and embezzling 35 billion won of funds from DAS, an auto parts maker that Lee is suspected of owning. The arrest warrant for the former president was requested five years and a month after he stepped down as the president in February 2013. If the arrest warrant is issued, former President Lee will become the fourth former president to be arrested following former presidents Chun Doo-hwan, Roh Tae-woo and Park Geun-hye. The investigation team at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office announced this afternoon that they requested an arrest warrant for the former president. Yoon Seok-yeol, the chief of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office delivered the investigation team's request that they needed to keep the former president under arrest during the investigation to Public Prosecutor General Moon Moo-il on March 16 and the public prosecutor general decided to request the warrant after a three-day review.

Female Migrant Workers Remain in the Blind Spot of #MeToo

The Ministry of Employment and Labor decided to conduct a survey of sexual assault in 504 workplaces hiring women migrant workers until April 27. This is the first time that the government will conduct a survey of sexual assault victims among female migrant workers. The labor ministry announced, "We will concentrate and check to see if female migrant workers were exposed to sexual violence and take strict measures against workplaces that violated the law." Women migrant workers are in a situation where they cannot even protest when suffering from sexual violence. They are even excluded from the #MeToo campaign, which has been spreading throughout the Korean society.

South Korea Refuses to Accept UN Recommendation to Abolish the Death Penalty

The South Korean government announced that it would not accept the 97 recommendations by the member states of the United Nations (UN) including the abolition of the death penalty and the introduction of an alternative service for men who refuse to serve in the military for reasons of conscientious objection. A number of President Moon Jae-in's campaign pledges were also included in the recommendations, but the government said that it could not accept them for now due to a lack of social consensus. Human rights and civil society group criticized the latest decision claiming, "The government is not willing to implement the recommendations by UN member states."

Former president Lee Myung-bak awaits tragic path like predecessors

South Korea's conservative ex-president Lee Myung-bak claims to be the innocent victim of carefully-orchestrated political retaliation but he may take an unavoidable path because of his ill-fated relationship with President Moon Jae-in.Lee, 76, has a unique political background as a businessman-turned former president in South Korea's turbulent political history that prompted two former presidents to die a tragic death and left four others jailed or expelled against their will.As Seoul mayor from 2002 to 2006, Lee was credited with a massive urban renewal project to restore a 10.9-kilometer-long stream in central Seoul and turn it into a modern public recreation and popular tourist spot.

S. Korea and U.S. to resume suspended joint military exercises in April

South Korean and U.S. troops will resume annual joint military exercises in April that were suspended after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made a surprise peace overture to dispatch athletes, cheerleaders and high-level delegations to last month's Winter Olympics, military authorities said Tuesday.Foal Eagle, an annual field training exercise, will be staged for four weeks from April 1, starting with an eight-day landing drill by American and South Korean marines, according to the South's defense ministry. Key Resolve, a command-post war game, will take place for about two weeks from mid-April.There will be no visible change in the number of soldiers to be mobilized for the exercise, but this year's field training period will be cut half, compared to the previous exercises which usually ran for two months.

Number of S. Korean direct buyers increase by 35% on-year in 2017

The total purchase of foreign goods by South Korea's "Jikgoo" consumers who shop directly through foreign shopping malls instead of middlemen at home hit a record high of 2.1 billion US dollars last year, official data showed Tuesday, reflecting a gradual change in the habit of young tech-savvy consumers. Jikgoo (direct purchase in Korean), which means buying straight from sellers, has settled as a new shopping habit among South Koreans who are familiar with smart devices and internet. Jikgoo Tribe is a term used to describe smart consumers who shop directly from foreign online malls such as Amazon, eBay and Alibaba. The Korean Customs Service (KCS) said in a statement Tuesday that the number of Jikgoo imports last year rose 35.6 percent on-year to 23.5 million while the total amount of Jikgoo imports increased 29.1 percent on-year to 2.1 billion US dollars.

Galaxy S9 sweeps consumer review charts in Europe

Samsung Electronics Co.’s latest flagship smartphone Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus topped the list of consumer reviews in six European countries. According to industry sources on Tuesday, the new phone from the South Korean tech giant occupied the top spots on the magazines of six European consumer groups, including France’s Que Choisir, Italy’s Altroconsumo, Spain’s OCU, Portugal’s Deco Proteste, Belgium’s Test Aankoop and Sweden’s Rad & Ron. The magazines all touted Galaxy S9’s high-definition display and improved camera capabilities along with its long battery life. But its high price tag was considered a major drawback.

South Korea, U.S. to resume joint military drills on April 1

South Korea and the United States will resume joint military exercises next month after a month’s delay to ensure peace during the Winter Olympics and Paralympics held in the southern part of the Korean peninsula, according to Seoul’s defense ministry on Tuesday. The world’s attention is now shifted towards how Pyongyang would respond to the commencement of the Seoul-Washington joint military drills amid the new detente created on the Korean peninsula, which is still divided between two Koreas by the heavily fortified militarized zone, after the North leader Kim Jong-un offered to hold meetings with the South President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump.
