South Korea has found itself at a crossroads yet again. Those threatening its economy this time include Kim Jong-un’s sixth nuclear test, downward pressure on the country’s credit rating resulting from the provocation, debates over nuclear armament, China’s economic retaliation that has followed THAAD deployment in the South, and negotiations for revising the KORUS FTA.

These days, more and more people in the American political community as well as the Donald Trump administration are advocating the redeployment of tactical nuclear weapons in the South. U.S. Senate Armed Forces...

A controversy is brewing over recent remarks from Moon Chung-in, special presidential adviser for unification, foreign and security affairs. On June 16 (local time), he said at a Woodrow Wilson Center seminar in Washington D.C. that the South Korean government may discuss reducing the scale of the joint ROK-U.S. military drill with the U.S. government if North Korea suspends its nuclear and missile activities. He also mentioned that THAAD deployment in South Korea is not the whole of the ROK-U.S. alliance and it is no alliance if it breaks up for issues related to the deployment.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met with each other in Florida on April 6. Their summit talks gained much attention as an indicator of Washington’s North Korea policy and the future of Sino-American relations.

After the summit talks, both Washington and Beijing have been showing unprecedented moves. For instance, China has returned coal to North Korea, stopped flights to Pyongyang and imposed a ban on travel to North Korea, which constitute an unexpected pressure on the North. Even the possibility of stopped crude oil and food supply is being mentioned...

Sometimes, when the change is too rapid and dramatic, you might not know whether it is really taking place or not. It is understandable, considering that you simply don’t recognize it. A dramatic change, however, happens anytime without your realizing it.

When Klaus Schwab talks about the 4th Industrial Revolution, it would be not so much difficult for you to just look away and stay in total denial. You could repeat it to yourself, “It’s not happening, it’s not happening! How can it happen in the situation that 1.2 billion people across the world can’t access to electricity as the...

Five Years of Free Trade

I still remember the anxiety I got from driving an American-made car in Seoul in the mid-1990s. On occasion, I had my car keyed, tires slashed, or woke up to find it covered in eggs. I was prevented from parking in certain lots and even had a nationalistic Korean refuse to sell me imported gas for my American imported vehicle at the height of the 1997 financial crisis. For a while I took these incidents personally, until I realized that the same thing was happening regularly to drivers of almost all foreign cars – even if those drivers were Korean.

Fast-forward to 2017. The days of...

China’s blatant bashing as of late against S. Korea’s decision of THADD deployment can be an opportunity to find out the true nature of China and can lead to some positive effects.

China’s retaliation against the South Korean government is continuing to intensify in the wake of the latter’s decision to accept the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system.

The retaliation took the form of anti-Hallyu measures in July last year. More recently, the Communist Party of China began to mention a severance of diplomatic relations and boycott campaigns after Lotte decided to provide land for THAAD installation. A major e-commerce company in China has shut down its sales network for Lotte and official Chinese news agencies are instigating a...

The National Assembly of South Korea voted for the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye in response to the people’s outcry and now the ball is in the court of the Constitutional Court of Korea.

It is well known that their recent candlelight vigils are not their first one. Back in 2008, a South Korean broadcasting station spread a canard about the opening of the local beef market and import of U.S. beef, which resulted in similar nationwide candlelight vigils. At that time, demonstrators included those carrying babies in strollers while refusing to feed them with U.S. beef that...

The General Security of Military Information Agreement between South Korea and Japan, which was resumed in four years and signed at once, is regarded as a starting point for the enhancement of the three-way alliance among South Korea, Japan and the United States. Experts are pointing out that South Korea has definitely veered toward the U.S. and Japan instead of its honeymoon relationship with China.

South Korean President Park Geun-hye has lost her authority because of the “Choi Sun-sil scandal” related to her intimate old friend’s involvement in the national affairs. At the same time, her late father and former President Park Chung-hee’s halo that made her the President is waning along with South Korea’s brand image.

Compounding the matter now is those who are trying to survive or rebound by taking advantage of the scandal and the President in a political coma. They include opposition party lawmakers, even those from the ruling party and the media, which all are like clans of...
