A Toast With Makgeolli
When the presidential couple hosted lunch for Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama and his wife, Miyuki, following a summit at Cheong Wa Dae on Oct. 9, the menu included "makgeolli," a traditional Korean rice wine.

Too Many Mea Culpas
Everyone's into apologies these days. Which isn't surprising, considering that a lot of people have a lot for which they should apologize, both publicly and privately.
