Half of Single Households Are Fathers Living Alone

Some 60 percent of the one-person households in Korea are actually married people with children, according to Statistics Korea on Tuesday, and four in 10 are over 50. This is due to a growing number of fathers living apart from their wives and children because they work somewhere else and senior citizens living alone after their spouses die.

There are 5.28 million one-person households in Korea, 169,000 more than last year, accounting for a whopping 27.8 percent of total households as of 2016. But 59.1 percent or 3.12 million are in fact married people.

Monsoon Season to Start Later Than Usual

The summer's first monsoon rains will fall in Jeju on Saturday, the Korea Meteorological Administration said on Thursday.

This is four to five days later than normal. For the past 30 years, seasonal rainfall has started on the southern resort island on or around June 19-20.

"The seasonal rain front is blocked from moving north by the North Pacific anticyclone, which is expanding to the east and west due to cold air in the upper atmosphere over the Korean Peninsula", a KMA official said. "This will likely delay this year's rainy season in the southern and central regions as well".

Men Still Earn Vastly More Than Women

Employed Koreans earn W3.29 million a month on average, but men make 1.7 times more money than women and staff in big businesses 1.8 times more than in small firms, according to a survey of 1,500 salaried workers by Statistics Korea on Thursday (US$1=W1,143).

The median income amounts to only W2.41 million a month, but the average salary is W880,000 higher the medium income because of a small number of ultra-high earners.

Baek Woong-ki at the state-run Korea Development Institute said, "As technology develops rapidly, managers and skilled workers reap most of the profits, while unskilled workers are left out".

Road in Front of Cheong Wa Dae to Open 24/7

Cheong Wa Dae has decided to open the road passing in front of the presidential office to the public starting next week.

Presidential spokesman Park Soo-hyun told reporters on Thursday that people will be able to walk freely along the street at night and that he hopes the route will become a "popular hiking course in Seoul".

Cheong Wad Dae sits in handsome landscaped grounds at the foot of a wooded hill.

At present, the road closes to the public from 8 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. for security reasons. This will be the first time in some 50 years that the road is open around the clock.

[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Man to Man” Episode 8

Halfway through "Man to Man" the requisite separation begins. Seol-woo extricates himself from the woman he fell in love with and from his bromance with Woon-gwang in order to return to his ghost agent duties. While sad, he seems ready to deal with the separation until, of course, circumstances brings them all back together again.

Seung-jae is to blame for the reunification of Seol-woo with Do-ha and Woon-gwang, but not in a good way. He is the mastermind behind the manipulation of funds and government in order to secure his power in Seoul politics. He cuts off Jang's access to NIS funds, has him suspended, and threatens his girlfriend, causing Seol-woo to search elsewhere for support and funds. Where better to look than with rich and famous actor Woon-gwang and his crafty manager Do-ha? While the bromance is wonderfully reinvigorated, Do-ha still aching from her recent heartbreak is much more reticent. But this is the stuff that drama lovers adore and Park Hae-jin and Kim Min-jeong work the separation angst to the fullest. Perhaps the most effective part of the separation is how mercilessly Laywer Lee teases Seol-woo for his lovelorn behavior and how Woon-gwang's crew things that he and Guard Kim got into a fight. It's the silly things that really propel this drama forward. The actual intrigue with the missions and bad guys is not as neatly wrought.

[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Lookout” Episodes 7 and 8

"Lookout" is barreling forward with Soo-jin at the lead. This grieving mother is brave, intelligent, and determined to bring her daughter's killer to justice. Her independence throws a wrench in the plans of Do-han and keeps everyone else on their toes. It's hard not to love such a driven heroine who keeps us guessing at how she will escape each new situation.

The focus of this pair of episodes is the search for Woo-sung, the man whose case incited cover ups and began Soo-jin's involvement with Chief Prosecutor Yoon and Chief Oh. Woo-sung is a lowlife, having taken the life of a man and then living free while an innocent young man took the fall for his crime. It is only Soo-jin's dogged hunt for him that brings him back to prison after Yoon releases him. In general, it is the chase and capture of Woo-sung that drives the episode, shows off how amazing Lee Si-young is at being a badass woman, and allows for Team Justice (Soo-jin, Bo-mi, and Kyeong-soo) to really get to know each other and reveal some of their stories to us. Mostly it is Bo-mi, the closeted woman who monitors the CCTV feeds of the city, who reveals herself to us. A cranky nay-sayer and the primary person who thinks Soo-jin should strickly follow their Leader's orders, Bo-mi has a trauma that keeps her shut up 100% of the time. She alludes to it when she decides to go against their Leader's orders and help Soo-jin find and apprehend Woo-sung, who kidnapped his daughter to get revenge on his ex-wife. She mentions not wanting any other children to live in fear. Both she and Kyeong-soo have backstories that I want to unearth.
