Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (July 25, 2016)
1. The South Korean government individually contacted the victims of sexual slavery of Japanese army and encouraged them to participate in the ‘Comfort Women Foundation’ ceremony that launches on the 28th. There are suspicions over the ‘treatment to lunch’ in the process as the government encouraged the victims to join the ceremony.
In other words, don’t say anything because we invite you to the lunch, right? What da heck.
2. Vice defense minister Hwang In-moo visited Seongju, Gyeongbuk Province where the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system is deployed to establish communication with residents. Seongju residents turned away the Hwang’s plan to stay in Seongju from 22 to 24 of this month and initiate communication with them and commissioners on a strike against THAAD.
Are there any other external influence? Why didn’t you take a close look?
3. Some activities opposed the Sewol Ferry Special bill and deliberately spread the posts that disparaged the Sewol Ferry victims of bereaved families in social media. The Sewol Ferry Special Committee used the keyword ‘Sewol Ferry’, analyzed all the posts, and came up with the results.
I heard that the pattern of posts was similar to Korea National Intelligence Service.
