Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (August 30, 2016)
1. The prosecution’s special investigation team raided Presidential Civil Affairs Secretary Woo Byung-woo’s family company Jeonggang and deputy commissioner’s office in Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. The team came forward to collect evidence on tax evasion, breach of duty, embezzlement, and suspicions on Woo’s son serving as a conscripted policeman that receive favors in his assignment due to his father’s position at Cheong Wa Dae.
Reporting this properly? Woo will be surprised to hear all these.
2. The South Korean government decided to cut some parts of rooms to recover missing bodies after salvaging the Sewol ferry in September. The Sewol Special Committee and bereaved families strongly opposed against the government’s decision, saying ‘the authority must not destroy the evidence of Sewol Ferry tragedy.’
If you have a guilty conscience, please pay attention to the families.
3. Ildong Pharmaceutical company’s ‘Aronamin’ was the top-seeling over-the-counter drug in the first half of this year. As Koreans become more interested in health, consumers spend more on multi-vitamin supplements and energy tonic to relieve fatigue.
You must be tired, aren’t you? People say that it is because of liver. Well, I don’t think so. It is because of you.
