[ed] Resumption of dialogue
Barring unexpected problems, hundreds of people from South and North Korea will likely meet their long-separated family members next month. If the North links the family reunion to the cancellation of joint military exercises by South Korea and the..

[ed] Tobacco litigation
About 6 million people die each year globally of diseases related to tobacco. Yet it is not easy to prove a person died solely because of cigarette smoking, and not anything else. None of the four Koreans who tried to do so in court have succee..

[ed] Wage guidelines
New guidelines on normal wages set by the labor ministry appear to be the embers that will cause further labor-management strife to catch fire.

[ed] Keeping competitive edge
While it's true the trickle-down effect has waned significantly, there is no underestimating the importance of exports, given the fact that Korea has to import energy worth $100 billion a year.

[ed] A day after the fair
The Korean government is second to none when it comes to the speed with which it patches up a crisis. Barely five days have passed since the news broke out about the unprecedentedly huge theft of private data, but officials announced comprehensi..

[ed] Rights law in N. Korea
The ruling and opposition parties have agreed to discuss a law dealing with human rights in North Korea at the National Assembly in February. The two sides are still in dispute about the details of their agreement, but the mere fact that they will ..

[ed] Third party in Korea
A tempest in a teacup, or a typhoon?

[ed] Foreign workers' rights
Extremely low wages. Filthy and dangerous work environments. Rampant abuse of workers' rights. These were common in Koreas industries during the 1970s and '80s.

Historical provocations made by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have made the relationship between Korea and China closer than ever before.

[ed] Safe return
It's fortunate that the government has confirmed the safety of Han Seok-woo, head of the Libya unit of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) who was kidnapped by four gunmen in Tripoli Sunday evening (local time).

[ed] Theft of personal data
The entire nation is dumbfounded by a massive theft of private data, which is unprecedented in both width and depth.

[ed] Rules for local elections
A partisan squabble is heating up over whether to abolish party nominations for candidates to run in municipal governments and councils in the upcoming June 4 local elections.

[ed] Fear of bird flu outbreak
The government is stepping up quarantine measures after confirming the outbreak of a highly pathogenic avian influenza at a poultry farm in Gochang, North Jeolla Province. Officials identified the virus as H5N8, a highly pathogenic strain, the firs..

[ed] Reform in limbo
The labor unions of 38 state companies and organizations are poised to put up a strong resistance against the government's move to "normalize" poorly-managed and heavily-indebted state companies.

[ed] Breaking the deadlock
South and North Korea have both started 2014 by expressing intentions to improve their relationship but then going the other way.

[ed] Another rebuke for Abe
Seven years ago, the U.S. Congress issued a yellow card for Japan's continued denial of the fact that its military forced foreign women into sexual slavery during World War II, by adopting a resolution. On Friday, Capitol Hill showed a red card to ..

[ed] Jobs for youth
