Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (November 25, 2016)
1. About 5 million Jeju residents join the candlelight vigil in Gwanghwamun Square, demanding President Park Geun-hye to step down on the 26th of this month. The residents are expected to spend 50 million won for purchasing air tickets as they are equal to renting three aircrafts.
History will say one thing that Park did well before resignation was revitalizing the slowing Korean economy.
2. The Korean rapper San E’s new song, ‘Bad Year’ topped the music chart. The song appears to portray his breakup with her, but the lyric sarcastically refers to the current political situation in South Korea, which garner explosive attention from music fan.
I wanted to start the the Year of the Monkey with good laughter, but it turns out to be a bad year.
A bad year is a homographic pun for b-word.
