Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (July 13, 2016)
1. A report says that the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system will be deployed in Seongju, Gyeongsang Province. The Ministry of Defense does not deny the report, saying ‘the government will explain the situation soon.’
I feel sorry for delicious melons in Seongju. I am just saying it.
2. Prosecutors who have investigated on humidifier disinfectant concentrate on the government negligence. They will summon related dozens of related government employees, beginning with eight to nine officials since last week.
I am scared of the prosecutors of saying the statute of limitations on the case has expired. They will not do that, will they?
3. One of the top executives in the Korea Skating Union prepared false documents for his daughter. The high-ranking officer ordered his subordinate to make up false papers for his daughter’s transfer to a renowned university.
Well, he knows how it feels like if you slip on ice.
4. The investigation technique that collects human DNA from blood-sucking insects and analyze the sample is first adopted by the scientific team in South Korea. As mosquitoes that drink blood become heavy, do not fly more than 170 meters, these blood-sucking insects discovered in the closed crime scene provide evidence when police pursue a suspect.
This does not mean that using mosquito repellant make me a criminal, does it?
5. South Korea’s air purifier market soars on Chinese yellow dust concerns. The neighboring Jiri-san local governments push ahead with air purifier businesses that sell Jiri-san’s fresh air.
Companies sell air purifiers like hotcakes in Beijing. The market in Korea has gone up in smoke because of THAAD.
