Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (September 22, 2016)
1. The ‘Korea House’ in central Seoul, which was established to promote Korea’s traditional culture is under criticism as the center is expected to include a French cooking school and restaurants later. The Mir Foundation led this business plan, and the foundation was under the allegation of earning billions of Korean won by involving Cheong Wha Dae.
The organization completes its work with lightning speed as President Park said ‘Creative Fusion Cuisine of Korean and French Cooking’. Great!
2. South Korea’s two opposition parties, Minjoo and Justice party, submitted a motion to dismiss Kim Jae-su, the Minister of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs.In the beginning, all three opposition parties were expected to submit the motion, but People’s party decided not to participate in after the final discussion.
After the general election, Korea made opposition parties a majority. But now what? They knew this would happen.
3. Lee Cheol-woo, Saenuri Party’s lawmaker, says he will move to the area where THAAD is deployed. The defense minister, Han Min-ku, enthusiastically agrees with the ruling party lawmaker, saying he is also willing to move to the deployed location.
THAAD deployment is not comedy chat of Jang So-pal and Go Chun-ja. Why don’t both lawmakers live in Gim-cheon and Seongju after moving residents in both regions to other areas?
