Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (May 23, 2016)
1. A large number of politicians from both ruling and opposition party are expected to participate in the memorial ceremony, marking the seventh anniversary of the death of former president Roh Moo-hyun. Bongha village was crowded with visitors.
There are so many people who never stop talking about the so-called ‘hegemony of pro-Roh’ but changed the wording by saying the spirit of Roh Moo-hyun when they visit Bongha village.
2. President Park Geun-hye, who visited Uganda for the first time as a president, generated public attention. Chungwadae explained the Uganda recently showed keen interest in the Saemaeul Movement, the modernization of the rural community in South Korea and are looking to collaborate with the Korean government.
She is going abroad, again? I hope she pays more attention to the Korean economy, rather than the Ugandan economy.
3. The police who investigated the murder in the public room near Gangnam station concluded the case as a ‘don’t ask assault’ by a man with schizophrenia. The announcement came after psychological analysis by profilers who said that the case was one of those ‘don’t ask assault’ crimes committed by a person with mental problems.
Is there a hate crime when the police conclude the case like this?
