Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (October 4, 2016)
1. As disputes escalate over the death certificate (cardiopulmonary arrest) of a Korean farmer, the Seoul National University Hospital Special Committee and Baek Nam-ki’s doctor elucidated the cause pf his death. The committee said Baek’s certificate was different from general one, but they did not have any problems recording the cause in details.
What the committee says reminds of the phrase, “I had some alcoholic drinks but what I did was not was not drunk driving. What the committee has said is a hit.
2. Disputes are heating up over a sushi restaurant in Osaka in Japan, where the restaurant serves Japanese food to foreign tourists with full of horseradish (Japanese wasabi). An employee in this restaurant used some expressions to ignore Koreans and sneered at Korean customers when they had a hard time eating wasabi.
Those who play with their food are jerks. They should be forced to try capsaicin.
3. Halal food gains popularity in South Korea as people consider them as healthy food. Although restaurants and supermarkets in Gangnam area sell Halal food, Korean consumers are unable to find out whether products are Halal food or not as companies do not include distribution and slaughtering process.
I am worried that fake Halal product affects our health. Anyway, I just wonder why Halal food is healthy.
