The funeral of late leader Kim Jong-il has been held in North Korea, with hoards of wailing citizens lining the streets. His son and successor Kim Jong-un has signaled the start of a new leadership by walking next to the hearse.

A hearse carrying Kim Jong-il’s body and the following procession appear in front of Kumsusan Memorial Palace in the center of Pyongyang. His successor is seen walking next to the hearse with the top seven officials of the communist regime.



[Soundbite] "We’re here to solemnly pay respects to our dear leader and supreme commander."



The North’s state-run Korea Central TV broadcast live the three-hour state funeral from 2 p.m. Wednesday. The funeral procession weathered snow in going around Pyongyang and returning to the memorial palace. A 21 gun salute was also performed. Kim Jong-un inspected the North Korean military at the center of a platform along with Pyongyang’s top brass. He played a central role in holding his father’s funeral, signaling the beginning of the North’s new leadership.



Hacking Probe



[Anchor Lead]



Grand National Party lawmaker Choi Ku-sik returned home Thursday morning after undergoing an interrogation regarding the cyber attack on the National Election Commission’s Web site. Choi firmly denied the accusations against him.



[Pkg]



Prosecutors investigating the cyber attack on the National Election Commission’s Web site the day of the October by-elections summoned Grand National Party lawmaker Choi Ku-shik on Wednesday afternoon. Two-term lawmaker Choi was subpoenaed as a witness. He returned home Thursday morning.



[Soundbite]Rep. Choi Ku-sik (Grand National Party) : "(Did you know about it beforehand?) I didn’t. (Did you order the attack?) No."



The prosecutors grilled Choi over whether he knew that his former aide, Kong, ordered the hacking attack. Sources say Choi reiterated many times that he was unaware of the scheme. Choi aroused suspicions that he may have played a part in the cyber attack because his former aides were found to have been involved in the hacking scandal. Earlier, the prosecutors also summoned Choi’s brother-in-law, Kang, as a witness because he was found to have contacted the people involved in the scandal. The prosecutors have concluded that a former parliamentary speaker’s secretary, identified by his last name Kim, collaborated with Kong in masterminding the cyber attack. Now the prosecutors are zeroing in on which one of the two conceived the scheme first and whether there are others involved in the attack.



Benz Scandal



[Anchor Lead]



The independent counsel assigned to investigate the so-called Benz prosecutor scandal has announced the results of its probe. The judge implicated in the scandal is confirmed to have taken bribes, but investigators say the case only involved the three main figures, and was not a large-scale legal scam.



[Pkg]



An independent counsel investigation has found that a judge of the Busan District Court received drinks and meals worth nearly 1,500 U.S. dollars from a lawyer. But since no large amount of cash was exchanged, the team wrapped up the case by notifying the Supreme Court of disciplinary measures. This is how the probe into additional allegations on the case ended. A former prosecutor, the lawyer who provided the Mercedes Benz, and another person were arrested. But other executives implicated in the illegal lobbying scandal were cleared of charges. Investigators say a mere liaison entangled with an affair, its disclosure and lies snowballed into a legal scam,.



[Soundbite] Lee Chang-jae (Special Prosecutor) : "No trace of unjust handling of the case was found, so the suspicions have been all cleared."



The independent counsel searched around 50 sites over 28 days, summoned about 70 figures for questioning, and traced more than 270 bank deposits. But critics have blasted the investigation as grossly failing to meet expectations.



SNU Incorporated



[Anchor Lead]



Seoul National University, Korea’s top college, has been re-established as an incorporated university. The change has sparked concerns as well as expectations.



[Pkg]



Seoul National University has been the nation’s top university over the past 65 years. Now, it’s an incorporated entity, freeing its name as a government organization. The university can now make independent personnel, financial and managerial decisions without obtaining approvals from the government. The university is now an autonomous institution that will be managed by a new board of directors. The board will be the one who appoints the next university president. All professors and employees, who used to be considered public servants, are now categorized as corporate employees. The biggest change is the university’s ability to engage in for-profit activities.



[Soundbite]Nam Ick-hyun (Dean of Planning & Development, SNU) : "We hope that the university will meet public expectations and the standards of advanced economies."



However, the change has also sparked concerns. A rally opposing the university’s incorporation has been staged on campus. The protesters say the university’s academic foundation will be destroyed while tuition fees will soar if the school ignores its social responsibility and pursues only profits and efficiency. All eyes are on what step Seoul National University will take next, as other state-run universities, including Incheon University, are also trying to become incorporated.



School Bullying



[Anchor Lead]



The recent suicide by a middle school student in Daegu has laid bare the severity of school violence in Korea. But very few bullies are held responsible for what they do.



[Pkg]



A 15-year-old girl has fallen victim to school bullying and violence. She killed herself last month, leaving a note listing the names of the students who bullied her. Before the girl committed suicide, her parents asked her school to protect their daughter. But the school did nothing. Instead, the parents say their daughter suffered more bullying after seeking teacher assistance in April last year and teachers questioned the alleged bullies. Police launched an investigation but failed to question the bullies due to lack of cooperation from the school.



[Soundbite]Middle School Student : "Teachers tell students not to do that but the punishment isn’t that harsh. "



Roughly one-fourth of students in Korea experience school bullying. But more than 40 percent of bullies are never punished. Just 4 percent receive school discipline and 2 percent are referred to police. Because bullies mostly get off scot free, more than half of bullying victims don’t seek help from their parents or teachers.



Cab Crackdown



[Anchor Lead]



It’s not easy to catch a cab during the year-end party season. The Seoul City government has been cracking down on taxi drivers who turn down customers looking for bigger fares, but even that has done little to reduce public inconvenience.



[Pkg]



The Gangnam Station area is a popular venue for year-end parties. People scuffle to try to be the first to catch a taxi. Although there are many taxies on the streets in Seoul, trying to find a cab from Seoul is a challenge as most are from Gyeonggi Province and Incheon. Seoul taxi drivers shun the Gangnam Station area to avoid crackdowns on cabs that turn down customers.



[Soundbite]Taxi Driver : "I prefer Gyodae Station to the Gangnam Station area. The fine is 100,000 won (US$86). My daily income isn’t that much."



Seoulites need Seoul taxicabs, because Gyeonggi and Incheon taxies only go to their respective areas. But even so-called "passenger helpers" trying to aid ordinary passengers in catching a Seoul cab are not successful. Meanwhile, this area abounds in Seoul taxies. Yet, many of these cab drivers turn down customers. Crackdowns on taxies result in fewer cabs available, whereas a lack of crackdowns causes many drivers to turn down customers. A failure to find a solution to the taxi problem only further aggravates the inconveniences for passengers.



2012 Plan



[Anchor Lead]



Parking will be allowed on weekdays on roads near traditional open-air markets starting next year. This is among the changes the Public Administration and Security Ministry has in line for 2012.



[Pkg]



This traditional outdoor market in downtown Seoul has attracted more customers seeking cheaper products amid soaring inflation. But parking is a major headache. Parking on roads near traditional open-air markets is allowed weekends or holidays only. But from next year, weekday parking will be allowed. An S-O-S public security service will also be introduced nationwide. Children can contact police by calling 1-1-2 on their cellphones. The government will also generate 20-thousand jobs by helping job seekers from low-income families get hired in the public sector. Efforts will also be stepped up to create jobs in the provinces.



[Soundbite]Kim Nam-seok (Public Administration & Security Vice Minister) : "We’ll create new jobs related to landscape architecture management, maintenance and administration of sports facilities, and managing ecology park to utilize the waterfronts of four major rivers and bike trails."



To prevent violence against children, a new system will enable control centers to monitor surveillance cameras installed in or near schools.



Doll Exhibition



[Anchor Lead]



An exhibition is being held that features miniatures of celebrities such as Steve Jobs and K-pop stars. Let’s take look.



[Pkg]



One of Apple’s co-founders, Steve Jobs, passed away in October this year. A black turtleneck shirt and a pair of jeans was the signature outfit for Jobs, an icon of innovation. A figure resembling him also wears the symbolic outfit. A teddy bear holding an iPad in its hand reminds people of Steve Jobs. These dolls in white wedding dresses are the members of the girl group "Girls’ Generation." These dolls look like the girls from the group "Kara," which is popular in Japan, and these dolls mimic the unique style of another girl group "2NE1." Dolls and teddy bears that resemble K-pop girl groups are on display.



[Soundbite] "The dolls that look like them are cute. So we took a lot of photos. "



Here are figurines of actor Tom Cruise and Prince William. A variety of figurines, dolls and teddy bears catch the eyes of visitors. The exhibition features 10,000 works produced by 500 domestic and foreign doll makers. Here at this exhibition, viewers have a chance to enjoy seeing and being with this collection of bears, dolls, and figurines of celebrities and other high-profile stars.



Laughing Out Loud



[Anchor Lead]



Laughter, they say, is the best medicine, and studies have proven that it can help you improve both your mental and physical well-being. Here are some people who have changed their lives through laughing.



[Pkg]



We met seasoned actress Jeon Won-ju, who is known for her hearty laugh.



[Soundbite] "I’m actress Jeon Won-ju, your laughter evangelist."



But she wasn’t always like this.



[Soundbite]Jeon Won-ju (Actress): "Once I was slumping to the bottom of the entertainment business. I even thought of retiring. Then one day, I heard a woman in the market laugh out loud. And I thought that even a merchant like her lives a far more strenuous life and I was a fool to be depressed every day"



Laughter brought her a new lease on life.



[Soundbite] "No matter how much I eat, shortly after laughing, I’m hungry again. I realized that laughing can be exercise. It energizes my life and many good things happen through laughing. I laugh and good things happen, and I laugh more."



Here’s another person who regained his energy through laughter. Kim Gyeong-sik began to laugh ironically when he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2004. One of the things he began to do to keep his hopes up was to laugh. He practiced laughing out loud. Eight years later, he has a lot of faith in the effects of laughter.



[Soundbite] "There are many aspects to treating an illness including modern medicine, alternative medicine, exercise and diet. Even so, I believe laughter contributed about 50% (to fighting the cancer.)"



A therapeutic laughter class is held at this university hospital.



[Soundbite]Nurse Lee Im-seon (Seoul National University Hospital) : "Laughing out loud raises the activity of what’s called NK cells of the immune system in cancer patients. And this considerably helps in preventing and treating cancer. "



Laughing is a great way to turn feelings of depression and anxiety into hope.



[Soundbite] "NK cells, aka natural killer cells, attack harmful virus and cancer cells. Laughing boosts the activity of NK cells according to many dissertations on this subject."



Here’s another class that teaches ways of healing yourself through laughter.



[Soundbite] "Garaetteok! Ssuk tteok! Ddeokbokki"



If you miss the beat, you have to dance around wearing a ridiculous mask. It gives everyone a good laugh.



[Soundbite] "I want to live healthily. I can do many things in life but I believe my health is the most important thing."



Even if you can’t find anything to laugh at, it’s said that forcing a fake laugh still has its benefits. One tip is to set your own "laughter button."



[Soundbite]Han Gwan-sik (Laughter Therapist) : "This is a secret but my laughter button is right here. If you have a button, you can always laugh whenever, as fast as you can. When you get upset or your life gets tough, don’t forget this life secret, your laughter button."



Whether it’s real or fake, laughing is the best treatment that doesn’t cost a penny.
