Warrior spirit
Two weeks after North Koreas artillery attack on Yeonpyeong Island in the West Sea, citizens in the South remain shell-shocked, still ensnared by a collective sense of insecurity, much of it derived from the governments inability evident during..

Specter of war
South Korea deserves a lot of credit for seamlessly hosting the G20 summit on Nov. 11 and 12. For months, a countless number of government officials and police officers as well as volunteers sweated and toiled in preparation for the event.

No more cheeks left to turn
On Nov. 23, North Korea bombarded Yeonpyeong Island in the West Sea with a shower of artillery shells and rockets.

China and belligerent ally
On June 29 during the 2002 South Korea-Japan FIFA World Cup, two North Korean boats crossed the Northern Limit Line (NLL) in the western sea again. South Korean patrol ships approached to deter the infiltration, and the North abruptly opened fire, ..

Reading Lee Kun-hee
Trying to guess what Samsung Group is up to and predicting how it will behave is similar to reading tea leaves. As with tassology, it is completely unscientific and more likely than not simply a wild stab in the dark.

Reflections on G20
Its funny how November of 2010 invoked the days leading up to the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics. Obviously, the deepening and fast fading foliage was not the reason.

Forgotten agreement
Prospects of constitutional change during the incumbent administration appear cloudy as the leader of the main opposition party expressed objections to revision of the basic law during President Lee Myung-baks tenure.

A street vendors tale
He sells packs of chewing gum on the street. If its not a rainy day, he can be spotted every afternoon on the corner of the entrance to the Myeongdong commercial district in central Seoul.

A strident power
Chinese trawler captain Zhen Qixiong flashed V-signs when he arrived at his home in a village, Jinjiang City, southeast Chinas Fujian Province, after being released by Japan.

One thing missing in G20 preps
President Lee Myung-bak is giving everything he has to ensure that the upcoming G20 Seoul Summit is a success. But his all-out endeavors miss one important point either from his mistake or that of his public relations team the lack of effort to ..

More than meets the eye in NK?
Topping as the most surreal moment this year is when on Sept. 28, North Korea debuted its paramount leader Kim Jong-ils third-son, Kim Jong-un, as the heir apparent.

Fair Society
Popular singer and TV-show host MC Mong is no longer to be seen on TV. At the peak of his career, the entertainer, hit by draft-dodging allegations, has been ditched by every program.

Be different, be Lady Gaga
First, two clarifications: for space constraints, I decided to drop for a while from the title of todays column, and the suggestion it is making is only for a selective few who can dare to do so.

DP leadership race
Nine of 16 contestants have passed the preliminary round of the race for the main opposition Democratic Party's (DP) top posts chairman and five members of the decision-making Supreme Council.

MBs Roh Moo-hyun spirit
What is wrong (or more exactly, right) with President Lee Myung-bak?

What a man must do to change
