The one-year anniversary of North Korea's sinking of the South Korean naval vessel Cheonan is approaching. A variety of events is being held in South Korea to remember the 46 sailors killed in the attack.

[Pkg]

[Soundbite] “Salute to the 46 sailors of the Cheonan.”

Mourners hold a silent prayer for the 46 soldiers killed in the sinking of the Cheonan in March last year. They lay flowers in a gesture to console the spirits of the young soldiers.

[Soundbite] “I feel sad when I thinking about the 46 victims. It has inspired me to love my country.”

Daejeon National Cemetery has seen a ten-fold jump in the number of visitors this week to a daily average of 700. Volunteers clean the tombstones of the 46 soldiers.

[Soundbite] “My son served in military. I feel really sad and sorry for the victims.”

A stream of mourners visit a joint memorial altar for the 46 seamen and naval diver Han Joo-ho, who died while searching for survivors in the sinking.

[Soundbite]Lt. Jr. Grade Jeon Su-han (Naval Base Command): “We’ll protect the waters of the nation. You may rest in peace.”

[Soundbite] “Chief petty officer Park Bo-ram.”

The names of the 46 soldiers are called out. The Navy also holds a memorial race to remember the day the Cheonan was sunk on March 26 last year.

2. Quake Warning

[Anchor Lead]

Some experts are urging Korea to equip itself with an earthquake warning system like the one in place in Japan, which provides a few precious moments of preparation before the tremors hit.

[Pkg]

Japan's Fukushima was jolted by a 6.0-magnitude aftershock. Only a few seconds after the quake was observed, Japan's broadcaster NHK delivers breaking news about the upcoming tremor.

[Soundbite] “This is breaking news. Please get prepared for a powerful quake.”

An NHK camera soon captures the scene of the city shaken by the quake. The quick broadcasting was possible because Japan's meteorological administration observed the first shock waves and informed the broadcaster of the quake before the devastating S waves reached the area. The powerful S waves took only a few seconds before reaching the region. But it's enough to issue an early warning and reduce the risks of accidents.

[Soundbite]Lee Bok-jun (Korail): “If a warning is issued early, we'll have more time to get prepared for earthquake damage.”

Korea's meteorological administration takes two minutes to announce the occurrence of an earthquake. Facilities vulnerable to earthquakes, such as a nuclear power plant, don't have enough time to prevent potential damage.

[Soundbite]Jeong Tae-ung (Sejong University): “Shortening the time needed to issue an early warning is crucial for the safety of IT industries, nuclear power plants and high-speed trains.”

Experts are calling for a revamp of an earthquake observation network and the creation of a quake early warning system.

3. Tours Halted

[Anchor Lead]

The number of foreign tourists visiting Korea has plunged since the nuclear crisis in Japan because of rumors that radiation could reach Korea. The decrease in the number of Chinese tourists is especially conspicuous.

[Pkg]

Chinese travel agencies have seen a surge in cancellations of trips to Korea by Chinese tourists. This travel agency expected 300 to 400 Chinese tourists to visit Korea but has sent just 70. All trips to Korea scheduled for next week and afterward have been canceled.

[Soundbite](Travel Agency Official): “We’ll likely have a hard time finding customers in the next three years because the public is concerned about radiation.”

Rumors that Korea is no longer safe to travel have spread among Chinese tourists since the nuclear crisis broke out in Japan. In Shanghai alone, more than 1-thousand people have canceled their trips to Korea.

[Soundbite](Chinese Tourist): “Korea is too close to Japan. Once the wind direction changes, Korea could become affected by radiation. I don't have plans to visit Korea for the time being.”

Korea's tourism sector will likely suffer further damage. A cruise spanning Korea, China and Japan that departs from Shanghai with 700 to 800 passengers has canceled its stop in Busan.

4. Olympic PR

[Anchor Lead]

Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province is trying to win the support of international sports journalists as part of efforts behind its third bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

[Pkg]

Pyeongchang is appealing to international sports reporters in its efforts to win the right to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. In the congress of the International Sport Press Association, Pyeongchnag delivered a presentation and stressed the potential advantages that can be gained through its hosting of the winter Olympic games. One of the advantages is the spread of winter sports activities in Asia.

[Soundbite]Cho Yang-ho (Chairman, Winter Games Bid Committee): “Asian people account for 60 percent of the global population. Asia is posting a fast economic growth; Korea has great potential.”

Pyeongchang also promised to offer a convenient environment for journalists to cover the games. It said that reporters will be able to reach all game facilities within 30 minutes and they will be provided with free internet access around the clock. European reporters who feel close to other candidate cities also expressed expectations for Pyeongchang's promises.

[Soundbite]Franco Fava (Italian Reporter)

In its presentation, Munich emphasized its experiences of having hosted several winter sports events in the past. Annecy highlighted that France was the country to host the first Winter Olympic Games.

5. Dulle Paths

[Anchor Lead]

As the government pushes to develop the nation’s forestry resources, five major trails will be developed to connect forests on the Baekdudaegan mountain range and in demilitarized zones. Forests for natural healing will also be set up to allow long periods for treatment.

[Pkg]

A winding pedestrian path is lined with larch trees. The path extends to the border between the Jeolla and Gyeongsang provinces. This is the so-called dulle path of Mount Jiri. Such paths will be developed around Korea's five major mountains including Mount Jiri and Halla. Five trails will be built to connect paths around the Baekdudaegan mountain range and demilitarized zones. The Presidential Council on National Competitiveness has announced this plan for developing and utilizing national forestry resources. Health enhancement and treatment centers will be set up in forests.

[Soundbite]Lee Don-koo (Minister, Korea Forest Service): “There are alternative treatments using forests instead of going to the hospital. Forests produce healing substances; the air and sunshine are clean and good for your health.”

Two thousand hectares of forests will also be developed to minimize damage from natural disasters.

6. 3D Info Models

[Anchor Lead]

A history park and a design plaza are being built on the former site of Dongdaemun Stadium in Seoul. The new facilities were designed by a world-renowned architect who used three-dimensional techniques.

[Pkg]

This structure looks like a labyrinth. It's the masterpiece of globally renowned architect Zaha Hadid, who designed the Walt Disney Hall. Like her other works, her design of the Dongdaemun Design Plaza also looks unique. But drafting a floor plan of the structure is a problem.

[Soundbite]Song Deuk-beom (Head, Metropolitan Infra Headquarters): “It's impossible to represent the accurate shape on a flat surface. The only way to do that is to use three-dimensional techniques.”

Plumbing and exterior siding also pose challenges. To resolve this problem, a three-dimensional designing technique has been applied. Known as "building information modeling," the technique not only allows to design a structure but also to view its construction process in virtual space. The system will facilitate communication among designers, builders and construction material producers.

[Soundbite]Kim Seon-u (Design Engineer): “The files are transmitted directly to the factory, where each model is produced mechanically according to the files.”

The Dongdaemun Design Plaza is 43 percent built. It's slated for completion in July 2012.

7. Academic Zeal

[Anchor Lead]

Learning is said to be a lifelong process, but this is more true for some people than the rest of us. This next student is going back to college at age 70

[Pkg]

This is the first-year choir class of the Department of Utility Music at the Chung Cheong University. One of the students looks too old for a freshman. He's 70-year-old Kim Yeong-min. He already has two college degrees. Kim worked as a public military servant upon graduating from high school. In 2007, he applied for the Department of Elderly Welfare at the Chungcheong University. Later, he went on to earn a degree from the Department of Magic Entertainment at the Dong-Pusan College.

[Soundbite]Kim Yeong-min (Chung Cheong University): “I decided to apply for college because I didn’t go after graduating from high school.”

Until last year, Kim mastered the art of magic. This time, his goal is to learn how to play the saxophone.

[Soundbite]Jo Ju-hyeong (Chung Cheong University): “I'm impressed by how hard he studies regardless of his age. He inspires me to do the same when I get older.”

Kim is a role model for his juniors thanks to his dedication to lifelong learning.

8. Sports Update

[Anchor Lead]

The national soccer team will welcome back Europe-based stars Lee Chung-yong and Ki Sung-yueng for Friday's exhibition game versus Honduras in Seoul. Here's more on that and other news from Korean sports.

[Pkg]

The national soccer team practices for an upcoming game. Ki Sung-yueng flaunts his precise passing and sharp free kicks, while Lee Chung-yong displays his quick footwork and diligence. Both players face the important task of establishing communication with the team's new players.

[Soundbite]Lee Chung-yong (Midfielder, National Soccer Team): “Sung-yueng and I are perfectly in sync. We look forward to our future collaboration.”

[Soundbite]Ki Sung-yueng (Midfielder, National Soccer Team): “I want to play a central role on my team.”

Slugger Kim Sang-hyeon of the Gwangju Kia Tigers hits a monster homer covering 125 meters in the sixth inning. He hit a home run in his second straight exhibition games, seeking to regain the title of "home run king" after two years. Hong Sung-heon of the Busan Lotte Giants went 3-for-3 in leading his team to victory, 3-1.

[Soundbite]Hong Sung-heon (Outfielder, Lotte Giants): “If I have many opportunities to act as an outfielder, I want to work hard to win the Golden Glove.”

From Kim Hyun-soo of the Seoul Doosan Bears to Choi Jin-haeng of the Daejeon Hanwha Eagles, who finished second in homers last season, left fielders in the eight-team pro baseball league continue to wow fans.

In the Korean Basketball League, rookies make their debut by helping fans perform volunteer work. The players look serious on the court but bond with the children in no time.

[Soundbite]Oh Se-geun (Center, Anyang KGC): “I thought about my grandmother, who isn’t feeling well. If I make money as a professional basketball player, I'll be able to give back more. I'll work harder for my fans.”

The rookies say giving back to society is just as important as honing their basketball skills.

9. Just Desserts

[Anchor Lead]

Cakes and cookies are dessert classics, but they’re coming up against some tough competition. Street snacks such as stuffed pancakes called hoddeok and roasted sweet potatoes are turning into classy dessert dishes. There are also special course desserts served with cocktails. Let's take a look.

[Pkg]

Spring is in the air here, and cakes and ice cream are being served. Filled with the aroma of strawberries, this is a strawberry-themed dessert buffet. The berries are in season now.

[Soundbite] “There're strawberries everywhere!”

First and foremost, strawberries make for enticing presentation. There're many, many desserts to choose from.

[Soundbite] “There are so many strawberries here. It's strawberry heaven!”

This is a fusion-style Korean dessert place. Here, roasted sweet potatoes, a staple winter street food, are served in a cafe setting. The soft, warm treats are a particular favorite of women in Korea.

[Soundbite] “We usually have sweet potato with kimchi or water kimchi at home. I feel the same here. I like the sweet and sour aftertaste.”

Another popular street food called hoddeok, which are pancakes stuffed with brown sugar filling, have been transformed into elegant pancakes. Korean rice cakes called ddeok and red bean porridge are used to create a new take on fondue.

[Soundbite] “The transformation of the street foods, the hoddeok and the sweet potato, is such a delight. Just eating it brightens me up.”

The music and lights here make it seem almost like a dance club. But this is a dessert bar where you have your dessert with a cocktail.

[Soundbite] “I usually have dessert with coffee. But after work, I go for a drink and something sweet. This is the right place.”

There's also an extra special menu.

[Soundbite] “We’d like the course menu.”

A full-course dessert meal.

[Soundbite]Kim Chan-hui (Dessert Bar Staff Member): “We made the course so diners can enjoy different kinds of desserts.”

The entree is silky tofu pudding. Tofu souffle and soy milk ice cream are then served. Cookies and chocolate are the finale.

[Soundbite] “We usually have dessert at the end of a meal. But a full course dessert is just wonderful to look at.”

Customers at this cafe are busy perusing the menu.

[Soundbite] “This isn't a menu but a selection of desserts customers can make in our baking class.”

This is a place where you can learn how to make desserts.

[Soundbite]Park Yu-na (Pastry Chef): “We make the food that is sold at our cafe. We also teach customers so they can make it at home.”

Once customers make their pick, pastry chefs help them make the dish. You may never have baked in your life but it doesn't matter. With a little help, you can whip up a tart in two hours.

[Soundbite] “I'd always buy dessert but it’s neat to make it myself. I’m going to make it for my husband. Wait for me!”

These places are taking dessert and making it the main attraction.
