Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (June 28, 2016)
1. Civic and media groups in South Korea opposed the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS)’s decision to abolish their news media self-critic program, ‘KBS News Ombudsman,’ by the end of June. If the program is abolished, two in three media critic programs will disappear. The only program that is left is ‘TV Critic Viewer Desk’.
No one wants to be self-critical when people do take other people’s criticism. I understand.
2. The best-selling food product this year came from the products of those old ‘steady sellers.’ The most popular food was the 66-year-old ‘Chilsung Cider’, followed by Saeuggang and Matdongsan.
The name sounds warm. Anyway, Chilsung Cider is much older than I am. I will treat the drink well.
3. South Koreans sleep the least in the Asia-Pacific region. Koreans slept 6.3 hours a day on average, falling 0.6 hours short of people in Asia-Pacific region.
Sleep is the best medicine. Having an adequate amount of sleep is important.
4. Elementary school students believe ‘good parents’ are those who listen to them, spend time with them, and do not compare them with other children. Parents think that the virtue of ‘good parents’ is those who listen to their children and have a conversation with them.
There is not much difference in thinking between children and adults. However, parents spend less time with their children. They always feel sorry for their sons and daughters.
