Death of print media? Nope
The head of a major vernacular newspaper recently observed, "If we enter the broadcasting business, we will go bankrupt in 10 years. If we stay away and just continue what we have been doing, we will be able to survive for 20 years."

June party
The monsoon season arrived just-in-time. The rain falls as if to quell the early summer heat and to tone down our turbo-charged football fever. The wildly popular Taeguk Warriors, the South Korean national football team, returned home Tuesday from ..

Euh Yoon-dae paradox
Perhaps, Euh Yoon-dae is about to land the wrong job at the wrong time. Not that he had coveted the job as the governor of the Bank of Korea and didn't get it.

Red Devils still hungry
There is nothing like football to drive South Koreans into such a wild, collective frenzy. The chant "Dae~hanminguk" (Republic of Korea) is a commanding spell that lets loose the "Red Devils" en masse.

It is only a game, isnt it?
On one hand, I love football. On the other, I hate it.

Political regionalism was the sole voting pattern in previous elections. But this changed to some extent by region in the fifth local elections on June 2.

Its time to talk
Red, the color of the Red Devils fan squad for the Korean football team is replacing the verdant green nationwide. The national squad plays its first match Saturday against Greece in South Africa.

Professor Kim Min-jun of Kyunghee University raised an interesting point during a late-night television panel discussion, Saturday, on the upset for the ruling Grand National Party (GNP) in the June 2 local elections.

Caught in Catch-22
Did North Korea really attack the warship Cheonan? To steer clear of this uncomfortable but haunting question, the government and military should leave no stone unturned in their inquiry into the sinking.

End of brotherhood
We South Koreans should learn a couple of lessons from North Korea's fatal assault on our navy corvette Cheonan with a twist on the Talmudic approach that allows ourselves to neither forget nor forgive.

Repeat of slogan
The National Assembly has failed to take steps to appoint an independent counsel to investigate serious corruption allegations against a group of 50 former and incumbent prosecutors during the last parliamentary session.

Is BOK chief perfectionist?
A blog, run by Knight FX dealing with foreign exchange-related issues, made an interesting comparison between the current Bank of Korea (BOK) Gov. Kim Choong-soo and his predecessor Lee Seong-tae.

May Musings
May is a favorite month of mine. The verdure or "sillok" in Korean that the month brings along relaxes the eye and pleases the soul. It's undeniably the most pleasant month of the year, I must say. Brides are all beautiful but the May bride is ofte..

Lawmakers or lawbreakers?
Rep. Cho Jeon-hyeok is a brave man. He did something none of his colleagues in the ruling Grand National Party have ever done: exposed the sensitive list of unionized teachers on his homepage.

Kohl, MK, Byrne
I usually stick to the rule of ``one subject for one column'' because I suspect columnists, who write brief opinions about multiple subjects on one platform, either suffer from a lack of in-depth knowledge or are overambitious.

What to do as a global leader
Neither South Korean President Lee Myung-bak nor Kim Yong-nam, North Korea's No. 2 leader, acknowledged each other's presence at a special dinner Chinese President Hu Jintao held for about 20 state guests before the opening ceremony of the 2010 Wor..

Bravo! Oh Eun-sun
Last September I had the pleasure to meet Oh Eun-sun, now the first female climber in the world to conquer all 14 summits that are higher than 8,000 meters above sea level, when she visited my office for an interview.
