Soccer, Conscientious Objectors, and Drama News

Honestly, I think the best thing that happened this week was all the random Twitter videos of Mexican soccer fans cheering on any random Korean person they found. XD Also, things are getting much worse for the Korean Air family, and by the end of next year, there will be an alternative military service for conscientious objectors.

Korean Air scandals: “Recording reveals alleged rant of Korean Air ‘nut rage’ heiress” and “Prosecutors question Korean Air chairman.”

Supreme Court power abuse case: “The Supreme Court Allegedly Destroyed Evidence: Will This Lead to the First Ever Search by the Prosecutors?”

#MeToo: “Warrant issued over YouTuber’s leaked photos” and “Witness of Jang Ja-yeon sexual abuse case comes forward publicly.”

Yemeni asylum seekers on Jeju: “Refugee fears grip Korea,” “Refugee issue prominent at Jeju Forum,” and “Justice Ministry proposes reinforcement measures to amend refugee act.”

“South Korea stuns Germany 2-0” and “Mexicans thank Koreans for helping team advance to World Cup round of 16.” Honestly, it sounds like a very exciting game, and I don’t even watch soccer.

“New 52-hour workweek comes into effect July 1.” This is down from the limit of 68 hours. Thank god for my max 40 hours.

“Korean students set to cross America for ‘comfort women’ campaign.” They’ll be crossing the U.S. on bicycle to raise awareness of the comfort women.
