Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (August 9, 2016)

 

1. The so-called ‘mother troops’ gathered again to criticize six first-term lawmakers from the main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea’s visit to China. They called these lawmakers as a traitor and advised the Park Geun-hye administration to maintain their firm position despite Pro-North Korea and Pro-China’s arguments.

I wonder whose mothers they are.

2. Going to sleep without brushing teeth after having alcoholic beverages at night has a negative influence on oral health. These drinks contain sugar, which causes not only tooth decay and gum disease but discolored teeth.

Chimaek (combination of chicken and beer) during the Olympics will give people stained teeth smile.

 

3. Amid the scorching heat, South Korea’s electricity rates came under fire as the demand for electricity hit an all-time high but many businesses open the door while the air conditioner is still on. The government will issue a public announcement on ‘limit on energy usage’ and plans to apply fines to the shops in which leave the door open while the air conditioner is on.

Applying the government’s progressive electricity billing system to the shops is much more effective than fines. I am melting, melting.
