Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 15, 2017)
1. The National Assembly took a preemptive attack by submitting Ko Young-tae’s recorded files, the one that President Park Geun-hye has requested. The files reportedly say that the president can do nothing without Choi Soon-sil and that she plans to build her private residence after she leaves her presidency.
Another mistake, huh? Are they defending themselves or doing stand-up comedy?
2. The Korean government made a strong protest against the Japanese government by calling the Japanese minister to Korea as the Japanese authority refused to amend the government guidelines for teaching for elementary and middle school students which say Dokdo is Japanese territory. The Korean authority says that it is very deplorable and Japan should withdraw their position immediately.
We should also recall our ambassador to Japan and consul general. Don’t just say it. Prove it.
