Intl Standard on Substitute Holiday
Many salaried workers shared the feeling that they were shortchanged by the last Lunar New Year's public holiday, as it overlapped with a Sunday. To their dismay, June 6 Memorial Day, Aug. 15 Liberation Day and Oct. 3 Foundation Day also fall on Su..

Seeing Sense
I woke up to see Seoul turned into a white fairytale land. Everywhere I looked there was snow, and lots of it, as we head to mid-March. The erratic climate personally makes me think how nature can be so unpredictable. And just like nature, how life..

Bad Apple
I don't find fault with what some say were "silly" questions that Evan Ramstad, Seoul correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, asked Finance Minister Yoon Jeung-hyun during a briefing at the Foreign Correspondents Club (FCC) on Monday.

Republic of Seoul
A huge banner reading "Welcome Redevelopment!" is often hung in front of old housing units or apartment complexes, a sign that can be seen only in Korea.

Proud President Gets C+
I wouldn't blame President Lee Myung-bak if he feels people are ungrateful for what he has done over the past two years as head of state.

Free Lunch
The adage ``There's no such thing as a free lunch'' is generally accepted as most people think nothing is free and that somebody is paying for the lunch of others.

Love of Apol(l)o
Love comes in many forms but the best is the love that you have right now, regardless of whether it causes you heartburn, doubt, joy, numbness, vertigo, etc.

New Ambassador to Russia Lee Youn-ho reignited talks about a tripartite natural gas pipeline involving North Korea, in a meeting with reporters on the sidelines of an annual conference of mission chiefs abroad in Seoul that ended late last week.

Rooting for Little Manila
A couple of years ago, I first came to know of "Little Manila" in the heart of Seoul.

Sonata Man
I met three people, each a leader in his or her respective line of work, on Monday.

Tiresome Battle Over PD Notebook
If a businessman plays a round of golf with a prosecutor, who will pick up the bill? It's the businessman. If a prosecutor goes out golfing with a journalist, who will pay? You know who.

Googles Decision to Withdraw From China
``Remember: first, you have to be in China. Second, if you are in China, you play by their rules, otherwise you will be shown to the door." These are the two main assumptions made by American and Europeans companies on doing business in China.

My Heart Goes Out to Kim Eun-hye
Kim Eun-hye was a star reporter when she worked for MBC TV. Then, she quit her job to join the current Lee Myung-bak administration as a spokeswoman.

Papa Rich and Noblesse Oblige
They each spend more than 10 million won a month in pocket money, own two imported cars of the highest quality and enjoy golfing abroad in their leisure time.

Missing the Bus Too Often
Great nations don't make a habit of missing opportunities. When they do, they are relegated into the league of ordinary nations, often with no prospect of regaining their power.

Getting Beef Soup to People
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War.
