Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (July 20, 2016)
1. Hanil Electric’s Ultraviolet sterilizer dryer for baby bottles used some of 3M’s harmful antibiotic filters and the company voluntarily recalled the dryer. The harmful substance is as similar as Aekyung’s humidifier disinfectant.
I am glad that the company came forward and voluntarily recalled the product, but it was scary, though.
2. Most victims and bereaved families of Sewol Ferry disaster still suffer from psychological, physical problems. The Special Investigation Commission made an actual report on the Sewol Ferry survivors and their families.
This is entirely understandable that they still suffer the consequences because the authority does not heal the wounds but tries to cover it up. Whew.
3. A study found that about 46% of summer holiday-goers visit tourist spots from July 30 to August 5, increasing the number of 41.1%. Traffic congestion in freeways is expected to reach the peak in the last two days. A household is projected to spend 658,000 for domestic travel and 3,859,000 for overseas trips.
There is no place like home. I will be stuck in the room.
