The mayor of Seoul's recent decision to crack down on illegal street vendors is economically controversial, but it seems that this decision was not motivated by economics but by cosmetics: namely, the mayor wants to improve Seoul's image in light o..

Behavior of Taxi Drivers
I wish to inform you of my deep dissatisfaction with the treatment my group received from some of the Seoul taxi drivers on Jan. 2. Six of us all foreigners decided to visit the Namsan Tower.

Teacher Evaluations
It will all end in tears. That's what I thought immediately upon reading of the education ministry's plan to evaluate native English teachers and get rid of the incompetent ones.

Japan Hands Ready With Bad Advice
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently summoned Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki to the State Department and told him that there was no change in the U.S. position regarding the relocation of the U.S. Marine Corps air base at Futenma, ..

No Longer Utopian Vision

Congratulations on FSSs Win!
In a Korea Times article titled ``Regulators Kick Out KB Chairman Nominee" on Page 2 of its Jan. 1 to 3 issue, I would like to point out the continuation of Korea's backward policy toward financial institutions.

Condoms Spread HIV/AIDS
``I would say that this problem of AIDS cannot be overcome with advertising slogans. If the soul is lacking, if Africans do not help one another, the scourge cannot be resolved by distributing condoms; quite the contrary, we risk worsening the prob..

Health Care Reform and Abortion
With the health care reform bill, the U.S. Senate is poised to bail out abortion provider Planned Parenthood. A Harvard Business School case states that this organization is facing financial difficulties, stemming from the uneven strength of its U...

Christmas Is Much More Than Just Tradition
Christmas is much more than just a tradition as it transports us to a very important truth: we are very important to God.

Close to Christmas, which commemorates the birth of Jesus, actor Chuck Norris has lashed out against President Barack Obama's health reform.

Spirit of St. Nicholas
There has long been some opposition to teaching children to believe in Santa Claus. However, the Claus tradition has religious origins that can be helpful in teaching children of all ages the values of humility and giving. The legend of Santa Clau..

Meaning of Christmas Feast
The Christmas star is not Father Christmas with his big display of generosity and friendliness. Neither is it the tree which we all decorate profusely; it is not even the children bursting with happiness.

True Essence of Christmas
If personal faith plays a major role in a family's life, their observance of Jesus's birthday will reflect their beliefs. But all too often, we see people drifting away from celebrating Christmas for its true meaning.

Victims to Hagwon Owners
I am a native South African who has been an English teacher at a hagwon (private language institute) in Gyeongju City for more than two years and I can mostly say only positive things about my sojourn in this wonderful country.
