North Korea fired artillery rounds into waters near Yeonpyeong Island in the Yellow Sea on Thursday. South Korea suffered no casualties in the incident.

[Pkg]
North Korea fired two artillery shells toward the Northern Limit Line near Yeonpyeong Island in the Yellow Sea. The Joint Chiefs of Staff says two explosions presumed to have been caused by North Korean artillery shells were heard at 7:46 p.m. yesterday. One of the shells landed near the Northern Limit Line northeast to Yeongpyeong Island. Earlier, at around 1 p.m., the sound of gunfire was heard three times near the North Korean island of Yongmae. One of the fired shells fell on the Northern Limit Line. The distance between Yongmae and Yeonpyeong islands is 19 kilometers.

The shell fell just eight kilometers from Yeongpyeong Island. After the firing, the South Korean military fired six shells toward the North using the K-9 self-propelled artillery. The Joint Chiefs of Staff says the South fired back because one of the shells fell on the Northern Limit Line.

[Soundbite] Im Byeong-cheol (Local) : "We were scared when we heard the announcement because we’ve already gone through this before."

The South Korean military assumes that the North fired the shells to check the preparedness of the Northwest Islands Defense Command, which was founded back in June. The North also apparently wanted to send a warning against the South Korea-U.S. Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercise slated for next week. Some say the North's provocation was masterminded by its hard-liners. The North denies it fired shells in the Yellow Sea and says that the South has mistaken dynamite explosives in South Hwanghae Province for artillery shells.

2. Relief Supplies

[Anchor Lead]
On the same day that North Korea was firing its artillery toward the inter-Korean sea border, South Korea announced it would provide relief supplies to help alleviate rain damage in the reclusive country. The aid is due to be delivered to the North as early as before the Chuseok Thanksgiving holiday next month.

[Pkg]
The South Korean government has conveyed a list of relief items to be sent to North Korea. The list mainly comprises foods including 1.4 million packs of nourishing meals for infants and toddlers, 1.9 million chocolate pies and 1.6 million packs of instant noodles. Pyongyang has asked for large amounts of aid including food and cement. So Seoul has expanded the scale of food assistance while excluding living goods and medical supplies. Also excluded are rice, flour and cement that could be used for other purposes.

[Soundbite] Chun Hae-sung (Spokesman, Unification Ministry) : "We sent a list of specific items. We hope the supplies will reach the residents suffering from rain damage as soon as possible."

Seoul will get Pyongyang's consent then prepare the supplies over the next three or four weeks. Delivery to the North is planned for before the Chuseok holiday.

The head of the South Korean operator of the Mount Kumgang tours also visited the scenic resort area last week. Chang Kyung-chak attended a memorial ceremony for the late Hyundai Group Chairman Chung Mong-hun on August 4th. But his visit was solely for discussing property rights in Mount Kumkang. Both sides are said to have "earnestly discussed" the mater and showed the possibility of further talks.

3. Historic Map

[Anchor Lead]
An 18th century British map describing the waters between Korea and Japan as the Sea of Corea has been made public for the first time. The name of that body of water is a contentious issue between the two nations, and Koreans are hopeful this could help their case against the use of the name “Sea of Japan.”

[Pkg]

[Soundbite]

The East Sea and Mt. Baekdu...

The waters directly east of Korea is mentioned first in the Korean national anthem. So the Korean people are angry over U.S. support for the name "Sea of Japan" to describe the waters instead of the "East Sea."

The Universal Gazetteer was published in 1760 in Britain. The text clearly describes the East Sea as "Sea of Corea." The publication also gives a detailed explanation that the Sea of Corea lie between Corea and Japanese islands. Even Korea's location in the 18th century is scientifically measured in the periodical. Revisions of the material that were published every ten years also describe the waters as Sea of Corea.

The waters were also called "Sea of Joseon" by the New Geographical Grammar published in the U.S. in 1787 and by a Japanese map published in 1835.

[Soundbite] Prof. Kim Sin (Kyunghee University) : "The term "Sea of Corea" was used around the world at that time. The term appeared in maps, dictionaries and texts published back then."

Around 100 maps and texts will be used as crucial evidence to refute Japan's claim that the body of water be called "Sea of Japan."

4. Rain Damage?

[Anchor Lead]
An entire village in North Jeolla Province has been buried in mud because streams overflowed after the heavy rain.

[Pkg]
Jeonguep, North Jeolla Province has been devastated by the heavy rain. The water has receded but the village is still buried in eroded soil. Muddy water has destroyed household goods, which must be discarded now. Products at supermarkets have become useless because of the waist-high water inside. Restaurants were also flooded.

[Soundbite] Yu Gyeong-ja (Restaurant Owner) : "The window glass was broken and everything inside was destroyed. Everything is gone."

Meat at inundated butcher's shops has gone bad, and some of the mills in the village were washed away. Residents are still terrified to recall the flood.

[Soundbite] An Seong-min (Butcher) : "I'd have died if I had stayed inside. We all evacuated to the rooftop."

Residents try to restore their village using excavators, but they're at a loss as to where to start.

5. Bogus Labels

[Anchor Lead]
The price of the Korean favorite pork belly known as samgyeopsal is skyrocketing in Korea. This has apparently caused many restaurants and suppliers to falsely label the country of origin on the product.

[Pkg]
Prices of pork have skyrocketed due to an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease and high demand in the summer vacation season. Domestic pork costs three times as much as imported pork.

A government team for agricultural product quality barges into a livestock company in Gyeonggi Province.

[Soundbite] An Dong-yun (Inspector) : "It's marked and packaged as domestic."

But the packaging material says the meat was produced in the Netherlands. The warehouse is packed with imported meat. This company marked 87 tons of imported pork as domestic and sold it for 907,000 dollars. Pork with false labeling was supplied to restaurants near military barracks and even to famous restaurants. The price was lower than that of domestic pork but higher than imported pork. The National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service will step up its crackdown to prevent false labeling of the country of origin for pork.

6. Legal Fraud

[Anchor Lead]
These days, online communities offering free legal consulting services are popular. But police have arrested a man in his 30s who was falsely calling himself a legal expert and fooling people into paying money.

[Pkg]
This online community offers free legal consulting services. Dozens of people post messages seeking help.

This man identified by his surname "Kim" posted a message seeking legal advice regarding a police investigation early last year. He received a phone call from a lawyer identified by his surname "An," who said that he was an ex-prosecutor.

[Soundbite] (Victim (Voice Modified)) : "He told me that he was an ex-prosecutor. (One of my friends) was being investigated by police. I wanted to get legal advice."

But he has turned out to be a fraud. Kim and other five people let him use their cell phones or gave 9,000 U.S. dollars.

[Soundbite] Ha Gi-yeong (Incheon Namdong Police Station) : "Free legal consulting Web sites don't ask for money. You should never leave your phone number on open message boards."

People are advised not to give their personal information in detail on the open message boards of online legal consulting communities. Police have caught An on charges of fraud.

7. Hanbok Show

[Anchor Lead]
Ulleung Island has hosted a fashion show of hanbok, the traditional Korean costume. Renowned hanbok designer Lee Young-hee has introduced royal attire of the Joseon Dynasty and summer outfits made with ramie fabric.

[Pkg]
Hanbok is gracefully blown by winds against the backdrop of high, blue waves in the East Sea. Modern variations added to the traditional garments are characterized by gentle lines and beautiful colors. The works are by designer Lee Young-hee, the first Korean hanbok designer to show her works at the Pret-A-Porter show in Paris. The traditional Korean outfits were a hit in the French fashion show. Lee in the Ulleung show introduced modernized hanbok with the themes of Ulleung and Dokdo as well as Chinese plums, orchids, chrysanthemum and bamboo.

[Soundbite] Lee Young-hee (Hanbok Designer) : "I want to express a message of peace and call for the spread of peace from Korea to the rest of the world."

The fashion show was initially scheduled to be held on Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo on August 15th, or Korean Independence Day. But the venue was changed to Ulleung Island because approaching Dokdo was impossible due to bad weather.

8. Inspiring Journey

[Anchor Lead]
A 15-year-old boy who is suffering from a rare muscle disease is travelling in a wheelchair around Jeju Island as a way to encourage other disabled people not to give up. Here's more.

[Pkg]
Bae Jae-guk is a patient of muscular dystrophy, a disease that weakens the muscles of the body. The 15-year-old boy has embarked on a nine-day trip along the 280 kilometers of coasts in Jeju.

[Soundbite] Bae Jae-guk (Middle School Student) : "I'll do my best to finish the course."

Volunteers have come to help at the news of his challenge. An hour has passed since the boy hit the road. He keeps going along the beautiful coastline. The boy has arrived at Gimnyeong Beach, today's destination, in nine hours after he left.

[Soundbite]

It’s great that they’re walking with me. I’m thankful and appreciative of the support.

This is the fourth time for him to travel in wheelchair around the nation. He began the challenge to give the message of hope to other disabled. He is planning to travel 48,000 kilometers across the U.S. next year.

9. Walking Tips

[Anchor Lead]
Bad walking habits can have long term effects on your body. If you don't walk properly, your backbone can bend and in some cases, you can get a slipped disk. Today we give you some tips on walking the right way.

[Pkg]
People walk in all different ways. This woman says walking is a problem for her.

[Soundbite]

My husband once told me to walk away from him because my walk looks weird.

Her shoes wear out quickly, especially the heels.

[Soundbite]

If I buy a new pair, I have to replace (the heels) every three weeks. The shoe repairman always says, "You're back again?"

As she walks with her toes turned out, she only wears pants. If you walk properly, it helps your body become fit and balanced. Let's take a look at her physical balance.

[Soundbite] Kim Seob-gwan (Physical Therapist) : "Her physique is not balanced, her arms are different lengths, and her shoulders are drooping. From the back, you can see that her left shoulder isn't properly placed."

Her balance is off due to her gait and posture. She also has some other issues.

[Soundbite] Dr. Jo Seong-tae (Orthopedist) : "She has the typical out-toed gait, so her waist is bent and straight in all the wrong places. Walking this way for so long, her neck is also affected. She has a neck problem."

If she continues to walk this way, she may end up slipping a disk.

So here are some tips on correcting posture. One way is to restore the function of the muscles that control posture. Strengthening the pelvic muscles and the rear thighs is particularly important.

[Soundbite]

It really hurts. I'm barely moving but the back of my thighs ache.

[Soundbite] Kim Seob-gwan (Physical Therapist) : "Due to her poor walking style, the outer muscles of the pelvis and thighs are strained and have become shorter."

Also avoid crossing your legs while sitting. On a chair, put your back against the back of the chair and if sitting on the floor, stretch out your legs. These are ways to correct your posture. Now let's move on to walking. Park received a pressure test on her legs for a diagnosis of her condition.

[Soundbite] Kim Eung-seok (Gait Correction Expert) : "The red area means the pressure points are concentrated there. It shows the weight of the left foot is in the front and that of the right foot on the heel."

Because she walks with her toes turned out, her feet don’t receive even pressure. Stand up straight and try to align the top of your head, ears, shoulders, hip joints and your ankles in a straight line. Also when walking, the order in which the different parts of your feet touch the ground is also important.

[Soundbite]

If you walk properly, this will raise your hips and work the muscles in your rear. And the lower part of your body forms a smooth line.

Choosing the right shoes is also a key. Shoes that fit your gait and the shape of your feet will help your walk. These tips can help you straighten out any walking issues you may have. Park has been practicing what she’s learned, starting from the basics.

[Soundbite]

Like me, my daughter's heels also wear out quickly. I’m going to this habit for her in the early stages.

[Soundbite]

I’m going to walk in a beautiful and confident manner.

With proper walking, you can regain your health and confidence.
