Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (March 27, 2017)
1. Supporters of the weekly candlelight vigil who have continued the peaceful assembly for 20 weeks in a row took a break for one week and gathered again last week, calling Park Geun-hye’s arrest. About 100,000 people participated in the rally, saying, ”With Park down, Sewol ferry up” and would attend the three-year anniversary of Sewol ferry disaster on the 15th of April.
The candlelight vigil will continue until the truth about Sewol ferry is uncovered and Park Geun-hye is arrested.
2. The fact that a college student who demanded the nullity of the Korea-Japan agreement on comfort women was sentenced 18 months in prison was made belatedly public. Sukmyung Women’s University student Kim Sam would have to stand trial four times a month.
They like Japan and make their citizens become criminals if they go against their will. Do we live in the Republic of Korea?
