Joint US-ROK naval training exercise to be held in the east coast of Korea 핵잠수함·이지스함 동해상 뜬다…한미, 내주 해상훈련 By Kim Kyu-yup

A joint naval training operation is scheduled to take place next week on the east coast of the Korean peninsula. The navy will mobilize nuclearpowered submarines as well as an integrated naval weapons system, simply known as Aegis Combat System. Military officials declared in a press release that both parties will execute a *joint navy exercise from the 4th to the 6th. The US Navy plans to mobilize the USS San Francisco (6900t),

a nuclear submarine, as well as the USS Shiloh (9800t), a naval cruiser equipped with the Aegis system. The ROK Navy will dispatch the Sejongdaewang (7600t), a naval cruiser also equipped with the *state-of-the-art Aegis system. *Destroyers, patrol frigates, antisubmarine aircraft, and *multi-purpose military helicopters will also be sent off. Military authorities stated that joint military exercises are held every year and that


this operation is irrelevant to the recent diplomatic strife with North Korea. But critics have voiced that the operation is an armed protest at

a crucial time in which North Korea declared their 3rd nuclear test. North Korea has held nuclear experiments in 2006 and 2009.

Nuclear missile defense 핵 미사일 방어 대책 By Moon Sung-kee

The nuclear might of North Korea’s recent experiments are estimated to be of Hiroshima *caliber. Their technology may even be *miniaturized into a *warhead. If North Korea is indeed able to fit its nuclear *arsenal into missiles like the one launched last December, it places not just South Korea but Japan and the US in danger. South Korea has two Israeli made Green Pine Radars. Green Pine Radars have a detection range of about 500 kilometers. Its detection range is lower than that of a SPY-1 radar on naval Aegis Combat Systems, but it has the advantage of being able to be *deployed on a fixed location. PAC-2 (Patriot) missiles also have the capability to intercept mounted nuclear warheads midair. The South Korean

government is considering to further improve its defense by upgrading to PAC-3s. Last October, South Korea revised their missile policies. 300km/500kg *ballistic missiles are to be upgraded to 500km/1t missiles or 800km/500kg missiles. 300km missiles are being improved for the time being. Kim Kwan-jin, the Minister of National Defense, recently visited troops near the border and told them that there is a need to “hasten the development of 800km missiles in order to combat the threat of North Korean missiles and nuclear warheads.” South Korea is to follow up by introducing long range airto-surface missiles to counter North Korean missile stations and mobile launching pads.

They are considering either American JASSM missiles or German Taurus missiles. South Korea had previously planned to introduce JASSM missiles to their arsenal in 2011, but lacked approval from the American Senate. Taurus missiles were *deemed too expensive. South Korea is currently working with what is available. The Agency for Defense Development (ADD) recently developed a GPS homing mid-range missile called the KGGB. The project is still in a stage that is too early for mass production, but it has been revealed that it can be loaded into FA-50 and F-5 jet fighters.

INTERVIEW The following is an exclusive interview with Mrs. Cherie Blair (current Chancellor of Asian University for Women and wife of Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of UK) and The Corea Courier in joint with The Women News. The dialogue took place at Mrs. Cherie Blair’s room at the Millennium Seoul Hilton hotel. Before the interview, Chairwoman Kim Mee of The Women News and Cherie Blair exchanged greetings and personal tokens.

이하 내용은 코리아 쿠리어와 여성신문이 공동으로 취재한 셰리 블레어 (현 아시아여성대학 총장, 전 영국총리 토니 블레어 부인) 와의 단독 인터뷰 내용입니다. 인터뷰는 밀레니엄 서울 힐튼 호텔에 위치한 셰리 블레어 객실에서 이뤄졌습니다. 인터뷰 시작 전, 여성신문 김미 회장과 셰리 블레어는 안부인사와 기념품 교환의 시간을 가졌습니다.

“We should be having a dialogue about how everybody, men and women, can fulfill themselves” 남성과 여성 모두에 대한 담화가 필요합니다. Cho Hye-young (Chief Editor, The Women News): 조혜영 (여성신문 편집국장)

Why and how did you come to promote education for Asian women?

Cherie Blair(셰리 블레어): I think the reason was I myself was the first person in my family to go a university. There were certainly no lawyers in my family. My parents were actually both actors. My grandfather was a merchant seaman on one side and a miner on the other. Now of course two of my four children are lawyers, so it’s a different situation. I was a person who felt like Korea as a country has been transformed by education. So I as a person was transformed by education. Going from Liverpool which is a port in the north of England to the LSE (London School of Economics) and then of course eventually moving into 10 Downing Street. That’s quite a big transition. Anything that helps encourage education particularly of bright girls who otherwise didn’t have an opportunity has always been an interest to me. 그 이유는 제 자신이 가족 중에 최초로 대학을 간 사람이었기 때문이라고 생각합니다. 물론 제 가족 중에 변호사는 없었습니다. 제 부모님께서는 사실 배우이셨습니다. 제 조부모님께선 한 편으로는 바다 상인이셨고, 또 한 편으로는 광부셨습니다. 하지만 지금은 상황이 많이 달라졌습니다. 제 네 자녀 중 두 명이 변호사입니다. 저는 교육을 통해 부모님, 그리고 조부모님 세대와는 다른 직업을 택하게 된 사람입니다. 또한 저는

한 인간으로서 교육을 통해 달라졌습니다. 영국 북쪽의 한 항구인 리버풀에서 생활하던 제가 런던정치경제대학에 진학하게 되었고, 결국 10 Downing Street*으로 이사를 가게 되었습니다. 그것은 꽤나 큰 변화였습니다. 달리 기회가 없던 여성들에게 교육의 기회를 제공하는 것은 제게 늘 크나큰 관심거리였습니다.

I feel that almost when I went down to the LSE in 1972 I was doing law and there were handful of girls in the class. When I became a barrister for the first time, it was the first time the number of female students has gone above 10%. In my daughter’s class, when she was qualified as a barrister 50% were women. And I almost feel that the situation for women here is Asia mirrors more the situation as I found it when I was 18. I could relate to the situation— maybe offer them something from my own personal experience. 제가 1972년에 런던정치경제대학을 처음 갔을 때 여학생들은 몇 명 없었습니다. 제가 처음 법정 변호사가 되었을 땐 최초로 여학생 비율이 10%를 넘어섰습니다. 그리고 제 딸이 법정 변호사가 되었을 땐 그 비율이 50% 로 상향했습니다. 이곳 아시아의 상황이 제가 열여덟 살 때 겪었던 상황과 매우 흡사하다고 봅니다. 그 때문에 저는 동질감을 느낄 수 있습니다. 제 개인적 경험에서 도움이 될 만한 무언가를 제공하고 싶습니다.

Lee Jae-sung (Publisher, The Corea Courier): 이재성 (코리아쿠리어 발행인):

Korean society is interested in raising more workplaces for women. What is your opinion on women’s rights and the participation of women in the workforce?

Cherie Blair: I’m a lawyer and for many years part of my practice has been business law but also women and employment rates. In the UK we have seen a transformation. In many of the cases I contributed to that transformation. So it’s clearly something that I feel strongly about, but I actually think that it’s old-fashioned to say this simply in terms of woman’s rights. I actually think today we should be having a dialogue about how everybody, men and women, can fulfill themselves through their family life and their personal life and through work. 저는 변호사입니다. 제가 변호사로 활동하는 동안 상법뿐만 아니라 여성과 취업률 또한 다뤄왔습니다. 영국 사회는 변화를 목격하였습니다. 대부분의 경우 제가 그 변화에 기여했습니다. 따라서 저는 그 부분에 대해 아주 완고합니다. 그럼에도 저는 그것을 단순히 여권과 관련하여 설명하려는 것은 구식이라고 생각합니다. 저는 실제로 오늘날 모든 사람들, 즉 남성과 여성 모두 가정생활과 개인생활, 그리고 직장생활을 통해 어떻게 하면 자아 실현을 이룰 수 있는지, 그 방법에 대해 논하고 싶습니다.

아이를 낳고 키우기 위해 애씁니다. 직장 생활이 20대 중반부터 시작된다고 가정하고, 고령화가 진행 중이라는 점도 감안한다면, 직장 수명이 최소 60대 후반까진 이어질 거라 예상해도 무방합니다. 그 기간은 무려 40 년이나 됩니다. 이런 맥락에서 볼 땐 아이를 갖는 시기는 상대적으로 짧은 시기입니다. 저 또한 아이들이 있습니다. 그들은 아직도 아이들입니다.


Moon Sung-kee (CPO, The Corea Courier): 문성기 (코리아쿠리어 생산관리본부장):

As a country that’s had a female Prime Minister in the past, what kind of changes do you expect from Korea, if any? And what do you think the president-elect should do to help women’s rights? Lee Seung-kon (Chief Editor, The Corea Courier): 이승곤 (코리아쿠리어 편집인):

Work-family balance is a very critical issue for all women, especially Korean women, and that is a barrier for a lot of Korean women at this moment. As a successful woman in that field—bringing up four children and pursuing your career—what sort of ideas or suggestions do you have for those that are making that effort?

기술에 의존하게 되어 그것에 속박 당할 수도 있지만, 또 다른 한편으로는 더 많은 융통성을 누릴 수 있습니다.

I for example, when I was at Number 10 I used to work from home a lot, I’m a lawyer I have to prepare my cases, I have to give advises to my clients, and I have to appear in court. Now obviously, appearing in court—I have to be in court. But the other two things, actually when it came down to it, it didn’t necessarily matter where I was, so long as I could have access to the materials—the law reports and the books that I needed. Because of the internet and technology, I was able to do that. 일례로 제가 Number 10* 에 있을 때 재택근무를 자주 했습니다. 저는 변호사이며 소송사건 준비를 해야 합니다. 고객들에게 조언을 해 주어야 하며, 법정에 출두해야 합니다. 물론 법정 출두는 직접 하는 방법 밖에 없습니다. 하지만 그에 앞서 말한 두 가지 활동은 장소에 구애 받지 않고 할 수 있습니다. 단지 제가 필요한 자료들만 (이를 테면 도서나 판례집) 접할 수 있으면 전혀 상관 없었습니다. 이것은 모두 인터넷과 기술의 발달 덕분입니다.

Cherie Blair: Well, there are all sorts of things to do today—in a world where technology enables you to work anywhere. I’m talking here in Korea, a country (that) in the late 1990s absolutely realized that broadband, mobile technology was the key to the future and has become a leader in that in that field preemptively in an amazing way. Sometimes technology can be tyrannical because you’ll never escape but on the other hand it does give you more flexibility. 요즘 세상에는 할 수 있는 일이 참 많습니다. 기술의 발달로 장소에 구애 받지 않고 일 할 수 있습니다. 바로 이곳 대한민국이 그렇습니다. 대한민국은 90년대 후반 브로드밴드와 모바일 기술이 미래를 주도할 것을 깨닫고, 그 분야를 놀랍게 선점하여 일인자가 되었습니다. 때로는

There still is too much in companies, a view that, at a certain age if you haven’t reached a certain level then you’re obviously not designed to go all the way to the top, and that works very heavily against young women. Because that certain age tends to be in their 30s. And these days, that’s also the age when women are struggling to have their children and bring them up. If we started to think that any career these days starts in the mid-twenties and with aging population, it’s likely to go to the late sixties at least. That’s forty years. In that context, the time when you got young children is a relatively a small period. Now of course I have children. I still have children. 아직도 기업에서는 특정 연령 혹은 특정 반열에 오르지 못하면 가장 높은 자리까지 승진하지 못한다는 인식이 만연합니다. 그리고 그것은 젊은 여성들에게 특히 불리하게 작용합니다. 그 특정 연령대가 주로 30대로 인식되기 때문입니다. 요즘은 그 연령대의 여성들이 주로

Cherie Blair: I wouldn’t be so presumptuous to tell her what she should do. She has done an amazing thing. It’s not easy to become a leader of your country and it takes a lot of skill to get there—having been married to someone (Tony Blair) who did achieve that—so I’m sure that she already will have some very clear ideas of what she wants to do with this amazing service that she is going to give to her people. 제가 주제넘게 박근혜 대통령 당선인께 어떤 일을 해야 할지에 대해선 언급하지 않겠습니다. 그 분께서는 놀라운 일을 해내셨습니다. 한 나라의 지도자가 되는 것은 쉬운 일이 아니며 많은 능력을 필요로 합니다. 저는 그 업적을 이미 달성한 사람 (토니 블레어 전 영국 총리) 과 결혼생활을 해봐서 잘 알고 있습니다. 따라서 저는 박 당선인께서 명확한 계획을 갖고 계시리라 확신합니다.

When my husband came to power in 1997, he came to power with a whole cohort of women MPS—over a hundred women MPs— and that was the first time that we’d had more than a hundred women MPs in parliament. All the research shows what you need—you know one and only woman on the board cannot change the culture. You need a certain mass, and they say there needs to be about 30% before you really change a culture. It’s not simply what the president can do; it’s also about how many women you have in your parliament, how many women you have in your government. 제 남편이 1997년에 영국 총리가 되었을 때, 그는 수많은 여성 하원의원들을 등용하였습니다. 무려 백 명이 넘었습니다. 바로 그 순간이 영국사상 최초로 여성 하원의원 수가 백 명을 넘었던 순간입니다. 단 한 명의 여성이 문화 전체를 바꿀 수는 없습니다. 집단이 필요합니다. 문화를 본질적으로 바꾸기 위한 하위 집단의 비율은 전체 인구의 약 30%에 달해야 한다고 연구자들은 전합니다. 단순히 대통령이 무엇을 할 수 있는지에 대해 묻는 것은 전부는 아닙니다. 몇 명의 여성이 의회에 있는지, 그리고 몇 명의 여성이 정부에 있는지가 중요한 겁니다.

Dear Daddy

Dear Daddy (From your *shopaholic daughter) 아빠에게(아빠의쇼핑중독자딸로부터) Dear Daddy, Happy Birthday. Honestly speaking, I would’ve completely forgotten about it if mommy hadn’t called me yesterday and told me to fetch some dried seaweed for the birthday soup. And to be more honest with you, I was actually *frustrated that she wouldn’t do it herself. See, the thing is, I am broke, and whenever I go outside, I am constantly reminded of my dire financial situation. It’s worse because the supermarket closest to our home happens to be a part of a giant mall. So even if I need to get something small, like a bag of dried seaweed, I still need to enter that mall. Daddy, you always *underestimate the power of the mall. You are not a twenty-something-year-old university student obsessed with Gossip Girl and just SO MANY THINGS. Bags, shoes, dresses, leather jackets, fur coats, sexy *lingerie, the ultimate push up bras, lip sticks, eye shadows, dark powdery stuff I put on my jawline to make them look sharper, jewelry... and OH MY GOD they are all in the MALL! Daddy, it’s been two weeks since mommy has *confiscated my credit card, and I am beginning to have *withdrawal symptoms. I can’t sleep. I can’t keep my mind still for even a minute. I am constantly worrying about the stuff I need to get before somebody else gets it, like the purple dress that I noticed on the way to get your damn seaweed. Anyway, yeah, I did end up getting the seaweed. I’m sorry for *digressing, talking about my problems again. I’m sorry for writing this letter as if I am writing a new Facebook status. Okay. Back to your birthday. Daddy, I hope you like the Uggs we got you. Mommy paid for most of it, but I did chip in, and it was my idea to get them. I saw the way you used to look at my adorable little Uggs when we would go out for random walks. And I remember you asking me a million questions about the experience of wearing them. “Is it really that warm?” “How does the fur feel between your toes when you wear it without any socks?” “Does it itch?” “Do guys wear them too?” Yes. That last question right there. That’s when I knew you wanted a pair of your own, but you were just too scared to ask. Daddy, you shouldn’t be worried. Not a lot of men can pull off Uggs, but you can. I know they are no longer a “trendy” item, but still, if a man could look decent wearing Uggs, RESPECT. Daddy, thank you for showing interest the stuff I wear, and also showing interest in getting some of it for yourself. It let’s me know that in the end, you are also interested in some of these THINGS. We should totally go shopping together. I am going to show you a clip from a show called Parks and *Recreation where two colleagues, an little Indian boy and a Black woman designate one day of the year to buy whatever they want for themselves. They call it, “Treat Yo Self.” They just get out in the middle of work and go to the mall and start *shopping like the Kardashians. Cafes, *bistros, *boutiques, hair salons, spas, they go EVERYWHERE. Daddy, we should have our own Treat Yo Self day. We have an awesome mall ten minutes away from our home!!! Thinks about it. I’m serious. Well, I should start *wrapping up this letter because I have said more than enough like I always do. We will talk more when you get back home from work. I’m sorry I don’t work like I do. I’m sorry for being *addicted to shopping when I don’t earn even a dollar.

Too many foreigners?: The total number of foreign residents in Seoul has been recorded to be nearly 280,000. Of that population, the majority have been found to be ethnic Koreans from China by a large margin. The myth that Seoul is a highly *diversified city may not be true: Korea is still a homogenous country, despite rumors of rapid immigration. It is not too difficult to find a foreign neighbor nowadays but that does not imply an escalating *incursion of foreign citizens. This city is small and compact. Public transportation infrastructures are highly advanced. In an overcrowded metropolitan city, local residents may perceive that Seoul is becoming crowded with different ethnics in far-reaching regions but information from this data proves otherwise. Foreign Residents are clustered in three districts:

Mongolia 2%

Russia 1% Philippines 2%

Thailand 1%

Taiwan 3% Japan 4%

Vietnam 2% United States 11%

< Foreign Residents in Seoul by Nationality > Source: Korea Statistical Information Service

Yeongdeung, Geumcheon, and Guro Districts have the most foreign residents with 42,112, 31,440, and 20,818 residents respectively. All three are mostly populated by people of Chinese ethnicity. Europeans are scattered all over the city with little or no established communities. Southeast Asians are growing in number, but only marginally relative to Chinese ethnics. All three districts are *dominantly ethnic Chinese communities. Why?

is a differentiation of which communities are small minorities in comparison to larger ones. Now, what explains the small number of Europeans, a larger number of Americans, and more dominant communities of South East Asians and ethnic Chinese? South East Asian and Chinese counterparts may have better production networks in Korea than in their home countries. Most foreign residents in Korea come because of better economic opportunities.

Europeans and Americans live mostly in Gangnam and Seocho areas. Population data on Latin Americans is hardly available. What we can gain from this chart 핵심 단어

Where tourists get nose jobs?

CEO Yeom, the Navigator of Inplanet

외국인이 찾는 코성형외과 By Lee Jae-sung

What better way to start t h e N e w Ye a r t h a n w i t h new appearances? It’s not that hard. Fresh Plastic Surgery Clinic is famous for *rhinoplasty (better known as nose-jobs) and nonsurgical treatment options. Fresh Plastic Surgery Clinic is located in one of the wealthiest districts of Seoul. It is rapidly gaining a reputation amongst tourists as a popular plastic surgery clinic specializing in rhinoplasty. So why are nose-jobs so popular? According to Dr. Ahn Tae-hwan, the head doctor of Fresh Plastic Surgery Clinic, “it’s natural that the nose commands so much attention. It is the only visible projection on the human face and it’s usually the first thing people recognize. Our customers approach us for our services looking for a way to make their nose look straighter and have a more upward appearance."

C l o s e d r h i n o p l a s t y i s performed from inside the nose as opposed to open rhinoplasty, which involves going in from the base of the nose. Unlike open rhinoplasty, closed rhinoplasty does not leave any scars, but requires a much more experienced d o c t o r.

The operation can be performed without skin incision though it includes grafting nasal septal cartilage onto the tip of the nose. Since this operation uses cartilage rather than synthetic implants, the surgery is less likely to bear side effects. The operation lasts about one and a half to two hours and the final results can be seen within 6 weeks to three months. F r e s h P l a s t i c S u rg e r y Clinic’s foreign patients

*convenient: 편리한

Since 2001, Yeom Jung Bong, CEO of Inplanet has promoted R&B and Hiphop music in Korea through Rhythmer (www.rhythmer. net), music distribution, and music production. The Rhythmer was born from Yeom’s aspiration for R&B and Hip-hop and is well known for its objective music ratings and critiques. When Yeom started the Rhythmer, he had a secure job at a major portal company, but his passion for music continuously conflicted with his regular working schedule. Yeom decided to resign from his job and focus his time and effort on the promotion of what he considers as “genuine music” rather than popular music. Over the past decade, Inplanet has grown into a company in which the full process of music making is possible: recording, promoting, distribution. Inplanet does not promote any idol singers. According to Yeom, “Inplanet is not a profit seeking company, and all our members practice music that we like.” The Korean music

industry is flooded with idols. Many of them are under contracts which give an unfair advantage to the music company rather than the artist. Interest in *slavery contracts spiked during 2009 when three members of a popular boy band decided to file a *lawsuit against their label company. Yeom explains that his relationship with his artists, such as Boni is a “partnership” with a reasonable allocation of profits. Boni is nationally acclaimed singer from the TV show Man’s Qualification. Yeom emphasizes that despite his hardships, he has never prioritized money. He concluded our conversation by saying, “music makes me happy and happiness is my motivation.”

He is bribed and threatened to give up the names of his classmates but refuses to buy his future. The headmaster plans to punish Charlie for his silence, but the blind man (Lt. Col.

Headmaster Trask (트라스크 교장): Stand down, Mr. Slade! 물러나세요 슬레이드씨!

Lt. Col. Slade (슬레이드 중령): I'm not finished! As I came in here, I heard those words, "Cradle of Leadership". Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here. It has fallen. 저는 아직 끝나지 않았습니다! 제가 이곳에 오면서 이런 구절을 들었습니다: “지도력의 요람”. 가지가 부러지면 요람은 떨어질 것이다. 여기는 이미 떨어졌습니다. 떨어졌습니다.

Makers of men, Creators of leaders. Be careful what kind of leaders you're producing here. I don't know if Charlie's silence here today is right or wrong. 사람을 만드는 사람들, 지도자들의 창조자들이여. 이곳에서 어떠한 지도자를 만들고자 하는지 고려해야 됩니다. 오늘 찰리의 침묵이 올바른 건지 그릇된 건지 모르겠습니다.

I'm not a judge or jury, but I can tell you this: He won't sell anybody out to buy his future! And that, my friends, is called integrity. That's called courage. Now that's the stuff leaders should be made of. 저는 판사도 아니고 배심원도 아니지만, 이 말은 하겠습니다: 그는 자신의 미래를 그 누구에게도 팔아먹지 않을 것입니다! 그것은, 친구들이여, 청렴결백 입니다. 그것은 바로 용기입니다. 지도자들이 갖고 있어야 하는 특징들입니다.

Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard. 저도 제 인생에 있어 선택의 기로에 여러 번 놓이게 되었습니다. 저는 항상 올바른 길이 어느 것 인지 알고 있었습니다. 예외 없이 알고 있었습니다. 하지만 그 길을 항상 택하지 않았습니다. 왜 그랬는지 아십니까? 그러기가 너무 어려웠기 때문에.

Now here's Charlie. He's come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path. It's the right path. It's a path made of principle that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey.

여기 찰리가 있습니다. 그는 선택의 기로에 놓여졌습니다. 그는 길을 선택하였습니다. 그것은 올바른 길입니다. 그가 선택한 길은 정의롭고 기골이 있는 길입니다. 그가 그의 길을 걷도록 내버려두십시오.

You hold this boy's future in your hands, committee. It's a valuable future. Believe me. Don't destroy it. Protect it. Embrace it. It's gonna make you proud one day, I promise you.

이 아이의 미래가 당신들의 손 안에 있습니다. 매우 소중한 미래입니다. 저를 믿으십시오. 그의 미래를 파괴하지 마십시오. 보호해주십시오. 포옹해주십시오. 그것은 여러분을 자랑스럽게 만들어줄 것입니다. 제가 약속합니다.
