Naver's problems

In choosing hospitals or private educational institutes, people usually search articles written by those who have had experience at these facilities before. Frequently, they will find these articles on Naver, Korea's largest portal operator.It has just been discovered that most of these "experience stories" were fake information manufactured by business enterprises and advertising agencies. The Seoul District Prosecutor's Office Friday booked three people who had opened about 70,000 Naver accounts with "cloned cellphones" and sold them to ad agencies for around 260 million won ($233,600), while prosecuting 48 people at 22 companies who committed "fake marketing" with these accounts.

Apple under scrutiny over unfair practices

South Korea's corporate watchdog is probing U.S. tech giant Apple Inc.'s practice of shifting the cost of advertisements to local mobile carriers, industry sources said Tuesday.South Korea's three mobile carriers started television advertisements for the iPhone 8 earlier this month. According to the sources, local mobile carriers currently bear the full cost of Apple's commercials, which could be considered an unfair business practice. "Whenever there's a new product, mobile carriers air the same advertisements decided by Apple," an official from a local mobile carrier said. "As no action has been taken by the FTC, mobile carriers have no choice but to follow Apple's guidelines to grab consumers' attention for a few seconds." FTC stands for Fair Trade Commission.

American politicians and media blast Trump’s Asia Trip

U.S. President Donald Trump’s first visit to Asia is creating controversy over his low-profile diplomacy towards China, the Russia scandal and wordy war on North Korea. Critics assert that Trump is swayed by Chinese President Xi Jinping, incurring isolation and losing the U.S. leadership position in the international community.Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer called President Trump’s trip to Asia a “flop” on his twitter on Sunday (local time). “Trump Asia trip a flop: POTUS acts like a lap dog to Xi and China, but talks tough to our friends in Southeast Asia,” said Schumer, blasting Trump for his remarks in China blaming past presidents instead of Beijing for trade deficit between the two countries.

Presidents Moon and Xi restore bilateral ties through Da Nang summit

During his summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Nov. 11, South Korean President Moon Jae-in officially restored ties between the two countries. This represented a confirmation by the leaders of the two nations that they are moving to thaw ties that have been frozen since South Korea and the US began deliberating the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system in Feb. 2016.This was Moon and Xi’s second summit, following a previous meeting this past July in Berlin, Germany, where they were attending the G20 summit. During a press briefing after the summit, Blue House spokesperson Park Soo-hyun indirectly referred to the THAAD conflict by saying that “Moon and Xi also candidly shared their opinions about differences of opinion between the two countries.”

Conflicting interpretations of China’s decision to again raise issue of THAAD deployment

China’s decision to raise the THAAD deployment during the South Korea-China summit puts the spotlight back on an issue assumed to have been settled during deliberations on Oct. 31. Chinese President Xi Jinping mentioned the THAAD issue during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Da Nang, Vietnam, on Nov. 11. A statement released by China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Nov. 12 said that Xi had reconfirmed China’s position on deploying THAAD in South Korea during his meeting with Moon the previous day. “Xi said that South Korea-China relations are at a critical point and that the two countries must respect their key interests and their grave concerns, safeguard reciprocal trust in political affairs and strengthen communication and cooperation,” China’s Foreign Ministry reported.

Press announcement hints at US openness to dialogue on North Korean nuclear issue

A White House press announcement a day and a half after US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Nov. 9 summit in Beijing mentioned efforts to resolve the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue through dialogue. The message’s inclusion is seen as signaling that the two sides reached something of an agreement at their summit on the need for dialogue with Pyongyang to achieve a breakthrough.

The press announcement sent to reporters on the evening of Nov. 10 said that China and the US would “work toward resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue through dialogue and to addressing the reasonable concerns of all parties.” The message has not been included before in past US press reports on the US-Japan summit outcome or in joint press releases following the South Korea-US summit.

Former president Lee may face wide range of probes soon

Speculation is growing that the prosecution will soon question former President Lee Myung-bak in multiple probes of his administration’s alleged interference in domestic politics and a corruption scandal involving the businessman-turned-politician.

Closer Relations Between South Korea and China and U.S. Comments on Dialogue with North Korea

On November 11, President Moon Jae-in and Chinese President Xi Jinping held a summit meeting and agreed to quickly restore bilateral exchange and cooperation to previous levels in all areas. The leaders of South Korea and China also agreed to a stable management of the present security situation on the Korean Peninsula and ultimately resolve the North Korean nuclear issue through dialogue. The two leaders decided that President Moon would visit Beijing next month and hold another summit. The two officially announced the restoration of relations between South Korea and China, which had been in conflict due to the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system.

Lee Myung-bak Refuses to Reflect on His Irregularities and Criticizes Efforts to Root Them Out

Former President Lee Myung-bak accused the Moon Jae-in government's efforts to eradicate long-established irregularities, including the Prosecution Service's investigation of the online comments posted by the military's Cyber Command and the National Intelligence Service (NIS), as political retaliation. On November 12, former President Lee said, "Looking at the government's efforts to root out long-established irregularities for the past six months, I began to wonder if this was in fact reforms. I had some expectations after the new government entered office, but conflicts and division have deepened in all social fields." He also said, "We are facing a crisis in security and foreign affairs, and I think the government treating the military organization and intelligence agency indiscriminately and unfairly puts our security in greater danger."

Cooperation with ASEAN Countries as a Community of People, Peace and Mutual Prosperity

On November 9, President Moon Jae-in announced his plans for a new "southern policy" as part of an effort to diversify South Korea's foreign relations and seek balance. The new southern policy is the counterpart of the "new northern policy" that President Moon presented during his trip to Vladivostok, Russia last September, and it aims to increase cooperation with ASEAN countries to break away from South Korea's geo-political position, which is excessively dependent on the U.S. and China.

The government has decided to give support to North Korea worth US$8 million in programs helping its vulnerable people including children and pregnant women indirectly through international organizations.

AJU Business Daily (http://eng.ajunews.com/korea)

Get ready to jump off tightrope any time

The principle that security issues should never be compromised is appealing. Security is a top priority in foreign policy, but the question is how much we can yield to China. China and the United States are basically competitive. It is hard to expect China to abandon North Korea and allow South Korea to absorb it. It is our task to take all of these factors into account and keep our security at its best.The United States is snubbing China's stance to swap North Korea's nuclear development for an end to the ROK-US military exercise. Our security situation is not affordable enough to consider stopping it. China is aware of this and its demand is probably aimed at undermining the ROK-US alliance. The same is true of THAAD retaliation. In the future, China can take similar measures to weaken the alliance.
