David Yonggi Cho, founder of world’s largest Pentecostal congregation, was found guilty by South Korean court for committing breach of trust and corruption of 13 billion won (US $12 million), according to Yonhap News Agency. Yoido Full Gospel Church senior pastor received a suspended sentence of three-year prison term with a five year probation and ordered to pay a penalty of 5 billion won (US $4.7 million) by Seoul Central Distrcit Court on Feb. 20, 2014. The court also sentenced Cho’s elder son Hee-jun, secretary general of Yeongsan Christian Cultural Center and former chairman of Next Media, to a three- year prison term without suspension. He was formally arrested before the court ruling, the Yonhap News reported. In 2002, while serving as chairman of a church-affiliated newspaper Kookmin Ilbo, Hee-jun sold the church 250,000 shares of stock in I-Service at 86,984 won (US$80.06) per share, which was much more expensive than the market price of 24,032 (US$22.12) per share, the hankyoreh reported.

wary of provocations by N. Korea after execution | Yonhap News
The disgraced uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un - Jang Song-thaek - has been executed, the country’s state media reports. This comes after the second most powerful man in North Korea was dismissed for committing "criminal acts." Official KCNA news agency said on Friday that Jang Song-thaek was guilty of “attempting to overthrow the state.” His death sentence by a military tribunal on December 12 was carried out immediately, it added. "The accused Jang brought together undesirable forces and formed a faction as the boss of a modern day factional group for a long time and thus committed such hideous crime as attempting to overthrow the state," the agency said. The government named Jang a "despicable human scum...who was worse than a dog." He was removed from power earlier this week, with KCNA reporting as translated by KCNA Watch that "Jang and his followers committed criminal acts baffling the imagination and they did tremendous harm to our party and revolution." Adding that “when Kim Jong I ...

S. Korea expresses 'deep concerns' after execution of NK leader's uncle - Yonhap News
Uncle accused as 'traitor for the ages' an image taken from footage shown by North Korea's KCTV and released by South Korea's Yonhap News Agency on December 9, 2013, Jang Song-Thaek is reportedly being dragged away from his chair by two police officials during a meeting in Pyongyang. North Korea confirmed on December 9 that the powerful uncle of Kim Jong-Un, the nation's leader, had been removed. New reports from North Korea say that Jang has been executed. Chinese President Hu Jintao, right, greets Jang in Beijing on August 17, 2012. Jang met China's President and Premier in an effort to improve the relations between the two countries after Kim Jong Un irked Beijing with a rocket launch soon after taking power.

Gold Bars "Sold by North Korea to China": Claim Wednesday, 12/11/2013 16:00 Un-named sources give conflicting news on sales of gold bars... North Korea has been selling gold bars to neighboring China in a bid to raise urgent cash against its worsening economy, a news agency reports today. Citing an un-named source, and not putting any figures on the apparent gold sales, Yonhap News says the secretive Communist state – locked out of world trade by international sanctions since 2005 – has been selling gold bullion bars for "several months". "Overseas sales of gold are a barometer," says the source, "of whether the North Korean economy is in a crisis or not." This marks "the first time" says Yonhap that the North Korean dictatorship has sold gold bars from its reserves under the current supreme leading, Kim Jong-un, who took power after his father, Kim Jong-il, died of a heart attack in December 2011. September 2012 however saw South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo report gold bullion sales of two tonnes by ...
Iraq signs $1.1 bn deal to buy S. Korean fighter Iraq signed a $1.1 billion deal Thursday to buy 24 multi-role light fighters from South Korea, officials said, in what will be the Asian nation's biggest arms export. Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) said it would deliver the T-50IQ, a variant of its T-50 supersonic aircraft, to Baghdad between 2015 and 2016, under the terms of the deal signed in Seoul. The company also said it expected to sign an additional $1.0 billion deal in 2014 to provide parts, equipment and pilot training for 20 years. The T-50IQ is an advanced multi-role fighter that is equipped with precision-guided weapons, missiles and machine guns. "It's the biggest order in the history of South Korea's arms exports," a KAI spokesman told AFP. KAI officials hope the deal will help their company tap into the lower-end fighter market as they seek to expand the global outreach beyond Southeast Asia, Europe and South America, according to the South's Yonhap News Agency. It quoted KAI Chairman Ha Su ...
SEOUL—North Korea's highest-profile leadership purge since Kim Jong Un took power is viewed by outside observers as a move to consolidate power that could trigger instability if it upsets the balance between the military and the ruling party. On Monday, North Korean state television showed Mr. Kim's uncle, Jang Song Thaek, being dragged out of a meeting by security officials, reinforcing the unusually public downfall of the de facto No. 2 in the regime. Mr. Jang and his associates were accused of a litany of "antistate" crimes, ranging from corruption to womanizing and drug-taking, by a meeting of officials from the central committee of North Korea's Workers' Party on Sunday. The report was carried on the front page of North Korea's main newspaper, with a large photo of Mr. Kim overseeing the meeting. Mr. Jang's fate is unknown. One report from a radio station in Seoul run by North Korean defectors said he had been executed. South Korean intelligence officials believe some of Mr. Jang's aides have been ...

TOP OFFICIAL BOOTED North Korea says Kim's uncle purged from power Korea has acknowledged the widely-reported purge of the powerful uncle of the country's leader Kim Jong Un, claiming he was removed from power for "anti-state" acts and "double dealing." The lengthy dispatch Monday from state media says Jang Song Thaek formed a faction in the ruling party "by creating an illusion about him" and distorting and weakening party goals. South Korean intelligence officials have said two of Jang's aides were executed for corruption. South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported late Saturday that documentary footage of Kim was apparently edited so as to remove his uncle. Yonhap reportedly viewed the documentary footage of Kim's inspection visit to a military unit, which was rerun on the North's Korean Central Television Station, and noted in a report that Jang had been hidden or deleted in a total of 13 scenes. By contrast, a version that aired nine times in October clearly showed Jang accompanying his nephew and sta ...
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Images of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's uncle have been removed from an official state TV documentary, a disappearing act that appears to lend credence to Seoul's claim that Pyongyang's second most powerful official may have been purged by his nephew. South Korea's spy agency told lawmakers last week that it believes Jang Song Thaek was likely sacked after the executions last month of two close associates, allegedly over corruption. The National Intelligence Service hasn't explained how it obtained the information, and skepticism followed the claim because of past intelligence failures in Seoul regarding the inner workings of the North's secretive government. But some worry that, if true, the purge of such a powerful figure could lead to dangerous instability. On Saturday, North Korea's state TV repeated a documentary on Kim Jong Un's military inspection trips. Although Jang appeared throughout the version that aired on Oct. 28, images of him had vanished from the new versi ...

North Korea: Kim Jong-Un's Uncle Cut From Film North Korean television documentary about leader Kim Jong-Un has edited out the uncle who has reportedly "disappeared" after being apparently sacked from his roles in the regime. The country’s official television channel has already aired the documentary nine times but for Saturday’s re-run Jang Song Thaek, appeared in different positions to make his face invisible and entire scenes were re-cut to remove him. He was hidden or deleted from 13 scenes, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency. It reinforces reports that one of the most powerful men in the country has been ousted. South Korea's spy agency said it believed Mr Jang was relieved of his posts last month. If true, the changes could mean Pyongyang is undergoing the biggest upheaval in the leadership circle since the death in 2011 of former leader Kim Jong Il, the current leader's father. Mr Jang is married to Mr Kim's aunt, the daughter of the North's founding leader Kim Il-Sung, and was wid ...

One of the great debates in the U.S. military has been the role of reconnaissance troops, essentially -- how much mobility and reconnaissance vs. how much combat response. It goes back as far as U.S. Cavalry under the command of leaders like General Patton. Today, a large part of U.S. reconnaissance is by helicopter, and cavalry troops are routinely mounted in rotary wing aircraft. This week, a new media post reporting U.S. reconnaissance troop deployments in the Korean Peninsula demonstrates that role (below). Today, New Zealand's mounted, armoured reconnaissance troops (our Div Cav) are response ready -- to patrol aggressively and to lightly engage the enemy if needed, as they explore the boundaries of the battlefield to identify enemy positions, behaviours, and strongholds. In addition, multiple forms of reconnaissance are part of New Zealand's force and battle plan for potential conflicts in the Pacific. Here is the U.S. news ...

Director Shin said during an interview with Yonhap News "Most people assume that he landed a part in my movie because he is an idol star. But I don't care about idol stars. I cast him because I saw great potential and passion in this young actor." Shin said he was impressed by Lee Joon's desire and passion to become and actor. No other 20-something actor who tried out for the part displayed his level of desperation. He added: "To compare actors in their 20s on how good they are is as meaningless as comparing how studious a group of elementary school children are. What really matters is the difference in their attitude towards the craft and their level of desperation." "Most filming took place during late last year, which was when Lee Joon was busy making variety show appear ...

S. Korean Puppet Group Accused of Its Fascist Action against Pro-reunification Patriots Pyongyang, September 28 (KCNA) -- The South Korean supreme court sentenced Ro Su Hui, vice-chairman of the South Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification (Pomminryon), to four years in jail on Thursday, according to South Korean Yonhap News. The South Korean puppet group committed such barbarism as hurling hooligans into forcibly taking him to prison as soon as he crossed the demarcation line in Panmunjom in July last year, incriminating his courageous visit to Pyongyang to pay condolences over the greatest loss of the nation on behalf of compatriots in the south. The puppet group has inflicted all sorts of physical and mental pain upon him behind bars for nearly a year and 3 months since then. It sentenced him to a jail term at a series of trials on charges of violation of the "Security Law." At a hearing of final appeal held that day the supreme court upheld the sentence of 4 years in priso ...

Samsung will announce a curved smartphone next month, but it won't be 'completely flexible' In the midst of Samsung's global launch for its Note 3, the company is already thinking about its next big reveal. This time around, it'll involve a curved display. The unnamed device could appear in Korea next month, according to Reuters, although Yonhap News (through the wonders of Google Translate) was told to expect a new device announcement some time in Q4. In either case, it's soon. The last time we heard about Samsung's handheld flexible displays was back in CES in January, where a 5.5-inch prototype device named 'Youm' was revealed -- that's what you can see above.

Pantech founder resigns as vice chairman due to firm's poor performance been mustering all it's got to win folks over with its smartphones, but poor business performance has prompted Park Byeong-yeop, the firm's founder and current vice chariman, to resign. Despite Samsung's recent $50 million investment, the firm's taking additional measures to solve its financial woes, which weren't eased by disappointing smartphone sales and a $46 million operating loss in Q2 2013. The Korean manufacturer is asking approximately 800 employees -- roughly a fourth of its workforce -- to take a voluntary, unpaid leave of absence for six months. If the outfit's circumstances haven't improved by the end of that period, it plans to ask another 800 folks to swap places with those on leave. Tough times are ahead for camp Pantech, but here's hoping the fiscal belt-tightening changes the state of its coffers.

News Updates: South Korea Rejects Boeing’s F-15SE Fighter, Will Restart FX-III: South Korea has decided against selecting Boeing's F-15 Silent Eagle Fighter Jet as the winner of its FX-III competition, according to local media reports. On Tuesday Yonhap News Agency reported that South Korean defense officials decided against awarding the 8.3 trillion won (US$7.2 billion) contract to Boeing over concerns about the F-15SE Fighter’s lack of stealth and suitability in future conflicts.

South Korea, military modernization; the long story around the KF-X fighter plane. KF-X Fighter: Pushing Paper, or Peer Program? EADS Cassidian reportedly announces that they would invest $2 billion in the K-FX fighter development project, and help market the plane internationally, if the Eurofighter is chosen for F-X-3. Investments would include a maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) facility that could extend to the KF-X, and an aerospace software center. It isn’t a bad idea for EADS. Barring multiple orders from new sources, it’s very unlikely that the Eurofighter will still be in production by 2022. Upgrades and maintenance will continue for some time, but the C-203 KF-X design could offer EADS a new option to sell, with a fundamental design that can improve toward stealth fighter status. The question is whether South Korea wants to go forward. Yonhap News . South Korea has been thinking seriously about designing its own fighter jet since 2008. The ROK defense sector has made impressive progress, ...
