Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (August 22, 2016)
1. Cheong Wae Dae sees allegations of corruptions concerning Senior Secretary for Civil Affairs Woo Byung-woo as an effort to ‘kill Woo’ and make the Korean government helpless. Some of media, corrupt vested power and leftists work together to remove Woo but will not find a compromise with the government in the past.
Do they mean that dogs and pigs bark? There are also corrupt vested power and leftists in Saenuri Party.
2. The Seongju Committee for the Withdrawal of the THAAD asked for other spots for THAAD deployment but withdrew their request later. While the committee’s request brings division and conflict between residents, Kimcheon residents are expected to move forward.
So that is how it goes. Where will the government go when Kimcheon residents oppose the THAAD deployment?
