The Lee Myung-bak administration has a knack for shocking people at the end of every year.

Dont blame President Lee
Dont blame President Lee Myung-bak.

Pain or pleasure?
Many Korean baby boomers have not saved much for retirement. They are retiring in their mid-50s, whereas their life expectancy is rising fast.

What went wrong?
There was considerable brouhaha concerning the initial reaction by Cheong Wa Dae to North Koreas Nov. 23 artillery attack of Yeonpyeong Island in the West Sea

Speed of a tiger, nimbleness of a rabbit
