While domestic voices and events in South Korea remain a priority for The Korea Times, significant world events are also vital to subscribers and friends online and offline. From civic protests against U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and the aftermath of the Catalonian government's bid for independence from Spain to soccer fever in European football leagues to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, international news is forever on the move.
And a clear eye and informed knowledge about what is happening around the world is required to showcase the most relevant stories and photographs.
Photos of the Day is The Korea Times' selection of pictures that best show what is happening in communities and countries around the world as captured by our partner news agency Reuters.
Greatness is humanity's ability to adapt to diverse and hostile environments, whether man-made wars or catastrophes or those driven by Mother Nature.
Being able to gain insight into such events as well as influences behind them broadens our knowledge and reminds us that the events that shape our world ― from earthquakes, politics and crime to sport, wars, dictatorships and the environment ― are happening every day, everywhere, all around us. One way or another, today or tomorrow, we are all part of this exciting, ever-changing world.
