Why not women cabinet
I wouldn't ask for the formation of an all-female Cabinet but the current problem with the selection of Cabinet members would be solved by nominating female candidates. Why? We have a proud female president. Women nominees for any minister position..

Cautioning against armed Japan
Regarding Japan's recent move to overturn its pacifist defense policy: Japans recent move to amend provisions of its postwar Constitution, which bans mobilization of its armed forces to settle disputes overseas is more alarming than it looks.

Shaking hands with China
On Oct. 19, 1950, at the peak of Korean War, Pyongyang fell to U.N. forces, and the two Koreas were just about to be unified under the jurisdiction of the U.N. and South Korea. On the same day, the People's Volunteer Army (PVA) crossed the Yalu Riv..

When child is born so are grandparents
Jane Han, reporting from New York for The Korea Times, now a happy and busy mother of twin girls, said in her Mom Spot column on June 21 that her grandparents, who came from Korea, treated her babies with complete lenience. And the young mother was..

Double-faced government
I have become increasingly angry by what recently happened; two plainclothes policemen had dogged the bereaved families without any agreement until they were spotted. It appears that the authorities of the Korean police think that they are above th..

Time to stop blaming government, crew
The whole country has blood on its hands and is responsible for the ferry disaster. People need to stop blaming the government and the Sewol crew and instead concentrate their efforts on eradicating the ills that plague Korean society: corruption, ..

'I pushed my daughter into water'
Mr. Huh, a 50-year-old factory worker, has seen several female corpses every time rescue divers brought bodies back from the sunken ferry Sewol and onto the rescue wharf. He believes his daughter will come back to him as there are still some 20 pas..

Complaints about Gmarket
I am a Hong Kong customer of Gmarket. I ordered a few winter clothes and cosmetics on Gmarket in November 2013. However, due to some problems of Gmarket delivery, I still did not receive my parcel (now in May 2014).

Leaning building of Asan
A leaning officetel (office-hotel) in Asan, south of Seoul, shown on the page 3 of The Korea Times (May 13) resembles the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the freestanding 56 meter tall bell tower known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side. The Towe..

Public response to disast
An article written by Lee Chang-sup on May 2 touches on the deepest part of the nation's heart, and my mind as an expat who dearly loves this country. It shows insight in the analysis and incompleteness in the resolution of the Sewol tragedy, which..

"It is the beauty of equilibrium, the word which I can never pronounce properly," the tour guide started her interpretation breathlessly in her French-accented English in front of the ancient Greek statue Venus de Milo at Palais Royal Musee du Louv..

Bieber's visit to Japan war shrine
Not that I particularly care for his infamous manner of speech and eccentric behavior, which have troubled many across the globe, but Justin Bieber touched on a very sensitive line of emotion when he visited a Japanese war shrine. Whether the Canad..

Tokyo's sushi diplomacy
President Obama and Prime Minister Abe met at the Sukiyabashi Jiro sushi house in Ginza. The rather small pure sushi restaurant, with some 10 stools surrounding the kitchen on the basement floor of a Tokyo building, is so famous among Japanese and ..

Side thruster and equilibrium
The large hole, about 2 meters in diameter, in the bow hull of the sunken ferry Sewol, shown in the photo (page 4, Apr. 18, The Korea Times) is called a bow thruster. Its not a rescue hole, and it does not provide access to inside the bulkhead. T..

Virginia governor deserves recognition
After much fuss about whether it is appropriate for a state legislature to intervene in what is a dispute between two countries, Korea and Japan, over the name of a body of water, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has finally signed into law the Ea..

Suppression of acts of nuclear terrorism
I refer to the topical article "Summit aims to counter nuclear terrorism threat" by Andrew Hammond, published by The Korea Times, in the opinion page on March 21 which is focused on the third Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in The Hague, Netherlands.

Positive responses to KOTRA ad
I am writing in response to the Feb.19 story, Chopsticks ad puzzles some foreigners.
