Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (July 1, 2016)
1. The phone conversation, which was unveiled to the public, became a controversial issue in South Korea as Lee Jung-hyun, senior secretary for public affairs during the Sewol ferry disaster, pressed Kim Si-gon, report bureau chief of the Korea Broadcasting Systems (KBS) not to make a critical report on the maritime police. Lee, the lawmaker of the ruling Saenuri Party, regretted to make a comment on the Sewol ferry disaster.
He does not care about people in Korea. The only thing he worried was the president’s mood. I also regret to make a comment on him like this.
2. A study found that a person who eats dinner alone is likely to be depressed by up to 2.4 times than those who eat dinner with their family. Men are more apt to be depressed than women as men who eat supper by themselves feel gloomy by 2.4 times than men who eat supper with their family.
Ah, I feel gloomy now. I will not be depressed tonight.
