Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 6, 2017)
1. Lotte Group considered whether to hand over the golf course in Seongju in Kyungbuk Province as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) deployment but delayed the final decision.

I am sure that Cheong Wa Dae mentioned patriotism when they extort money from Korean conglomerates. They are suckers for frisbees.
2. Oxy products that led to more than 1,000 deaths are still available online market, which represents that boycott campaign does not work. However, pundits say that even if consumer strike does not necessarily affect company performance, it is still required to change consumer perception.
We probably need a campaign for product recommendation as well as boycott campaign. Ottogi Ramen instead of Nongshim Ramen.
