1. Seoul Metro accepted resignations from two executive-level managers and discharged five officials responsible for the Guui Station accident. Seoul Metro said accepting resignation early was a necessary measure to stabilize the organization.

I feel that I am seeing a gangster who goes to the prison for his boss. Oh, Seoul Metro is Mefia (Metro and Mafia).


2. The Ministry of Education clarified their position which once accused grilling mackerel as the main culprit of fine dust. With increasing media reports on mackerels, the ministry explained the situation after two weeks when Korean consumers turned their back against mackerels.

Consumers are eating mackerels at a low price because of the ministry. I am sorry, mackerels.


3. In China, the first-class postnatal care center came forward with a monthly fee of 180,000 US dollars. The center uses hotel room and Korea’s postnatal center plan to enter the Chinese market.

Are babies in the center born with a diamond spoon in their mouth? They don’t even have teeth!


4. Korea has the second largest aging population by 2050. Those in their 50s and 60s are afraid to face their later life with their income remain the same due to economic slowdown. In fact, the so-called ‘the retirement preparation index’ in Korea exacerbates.

I am worried about my later life. That’s why I couldn’t sleep at night. Getting old is sad.

5. English villages that have generated nationwide boom about ten years ago became a serious problem for local governments in South Korea due to chronic deficits. Some of the villages are closed while some of the facilities are used as human resources training center and life-long education and experience center.

Something like that, right?
