Lee Seong-hyon, right, a China expert at the Sejong Institute, gesticulates at a roundtable hosted by The Korea Times in its conference room, Monday. Clockwise from Lee are the paper's chief editorial writer Oh Young-jin; Kurt Achin, TBS radio show host; the paper's columnist John Burton and journalist/copy editor David Nicoll. Michael Breen, who is about to resume his bi-weekly columns, was delayed and is not in the photo. The topic was Seoul's decision to close the Gaeseong Industrial Complex -- the last vestige of inter-Korean cooperation -- and other North Korea-related issues.
