The wife of independent presidential candidate Ahn Cheol-soo allegedly signed a bogus contract when purchasing an apartment to avoid paying taxes.



[Pkg]



The wife of independent presidential candidate Ahn Cheol-soo was found to have signed a fake agreement while buying an apartment in 2001. The price mentioned in the contract was lower than the actual price. Ahn’s wife, Kim Mi-kyung, who is also a Seoul National University professor, bought an apartment in Munjeong-dong, Seoul in October 2001. A person close to Ahn said that the apartment price she reported was US$ 223,000, but she in fact paid more. The person claimed that a contract stating the actual price of the apartment was under Kim’s possession. He admitted that Kim paid more for her apartment than was reported, but that the exact price is hard to find out at this point. Sources say apartment units similar in size to Kim’s cost more than US$ 400,000 at the time she bought her home. Now that Kim has been discovered reporting a false price, some say she may have tried to evade the real estate registration and taxes. The person close to Ahn said the forged contract that was submitted to the district was written up by a realtor at the time, but he still apologized for the scandal and claimed it was wrong to forge the price. In his recently published book, "Ahn Cheol-soo’s Thoughts," he wrote that tax evasion must be exterminated by strengthening the taxation procedures and by punishing tax dodgers more severely.



2. Three Campaigns



[Anchor Lead]



As the Korean thanksgiving holiday of Chuseok approaches, the three main presidential candidates Park Geun-hye, Moon Jae-in and Ahn Cheol-soo continued their campaigning.



[Pkg]



On Wednesday evening, ruling Saenuri Party presidential candidate Park Geun-hye visited a shopping center in Seoul’s Dongdaemun district to target young voters and to get a feel of the domestic business sentiment ahead of the Korean thanksgiving Chuseok holiday.



[Soundbite] Rep. Park Geun-hye (Saenuri Party Presidential Candidate): “We will lower the credit card transaction fees to 1.5%. I hope it will help you a bit.”



Beforehand, Park became the first of the three presidential contenders to inaugurate her central election management committee. Main opposition Democratic United Party candidate Moon Jae-in announced his measures for protecting small and medium-sized businesses and small neighborhood mom-and-pop shops.



[Soundbite] Rep. Moon Jae-in (DUP Presidential Candidate): “I’ll ban the entry of conglomerates at the very source, and as for those that have already entered, they will hand over their businesses.”



The opposition candidate designated former environment minister Yoon Yeo-joon as head of his election camp’s national unity committee. Yoon, a former member of the Grand National Party, is known to have once been a mentor to independent candidate Ahn Cheol-soo. Meanwhile, the former-software-guru-turned-presidential contender Ahn Cheol-soo visited the grave site of late president Roh Moo-hyun and paid his respects to Roh’s wife, former First Lady Kwon Yang-sook.



[Soundbite] Ahn Cheol-soo (Independent Presidential Candidate): “Former president Roh was a truly warm-hearted man and treated people with sincerity.”



Afterwards, Ahn made a trip to his alma mater in Busan. He also met with officials from the Busan International Film Festival in order to draw support from the voters in his hometown.



3. Smartphone Battle



[Anchor Lead]



All three Korean mobile phone producers have begun selling their new smartphone lines, including Samung Electronics’ Galaxy Note 2. With the upcoming Korean debut of the iPhone 5, which uses the LTE network, handset producers are fiercely competing to take the lead in the LTE market.

A user can easily capture and send an image with a touch of a pen. Photos and video clips can be enlarged using the pen on the screen. Samung Electronics unveiled its latest smartphone Galaxy Note 2 in Germany late last month. Samsung began selling the new smartphone first in the Korean market, a far cry from the company’s tradition of selling new products overseas first.



[Soundbite] Shin Jong-kyun (President, Samsung IT & Mobile Communications): “We’ll provide voice and data services using the high-speed LTE network in Korea, the first country to introduce Voice Over LTE services.”



Pantech introduced their new smartphone, the Vega R3, this week, declaring its head-on competition with Apple. The new Pantech smartphone comes with a large screen measuring five-point-three inches, but users can hold and fiddle around with it using one hand. Its batteries also let users talk on the phone for 14-and-a-half hours. LG Electronics similarly unveiled its new smartphone the "Optimus G" last week. It will introduce another new smartphone on September 29th to capture a greater share of the market. Handset producers are scrambling to keep up with the red-hot growth of the LTE smartphone market by introducing new smartphones. The number of subscribers to the LTE service has topped ten million. Apple’s iPhone 5 will soon hit the Korean market. Handset makers will continue to battle it out to take a bigger share of the pie in the LTE market.



4. Busy Deliveries



[Anchor Lead]



With Chuseok beginning this weekend, the demand for delivery of holiday gifts has gone through the roof, and logistics and distribution companies have shifted into overdrive.



[Pkg]



Late at night, a post office is as bright as day. Delivery trucks are lined up outside the building. As there are too many parcels for the conveyor belts to handle, the staff members have to swiftly load the packages onto carts to make more room. The employees don’t have time to take a quick breather as the parcels keep pouring in.



[Soundbite] Nam Se-wu (Cheongju Mail Center): “Packages keep pouring in so we’re really busy. We’re facing the largest amount today.”



Deliverymen on motorcycles have a towering stack of packages loaded in the back. Ahead of the busy holiday, part-timers and officials from administrative teams have also been mobilized to help deliver the parcels on time.



[Soundbite] Sin Yeong-ha (Seo Cheongju Post Office): “We are in emergency mode. Even our administrative staff members are delivering goods, not just mail carriers.”



Stores and other delivery services have switched gears into emergency mode due to orders that keep pouring in. They have doubled their staff and mobilized special delivery vehicles. With Chuseok only several days away, all companies dealing with the shipment of packages are going through their busiest time of the year.



5. North Korea in 3D



[Anchor Lead]



Chuseok is a time of homesickness for people who were forced to leave their hometowns in North Korea during the Korean War. But now a 3D satellite map of the North may provide some solace.



[Pkg]



These senior citizens left North Korea to settle down in the South during the Korean War. They cannot visit their hometowns despite the approaching holiday.



[Soundbite] “I used to swim here when I was in elementary school. The stream was shallow.”



They recall memories of their hometowns based on old photos, but even these recollections are fading away. Now, a 3D satellite will be able to help them look into North Korea this Chuseok holiday. Houses line up the streets in downtown Pyongyang. The May First Stadium on Rungnado appears to be so close. The map shows each peak of Mount Keumgang in great detail. People can identify the names of rural villages at a glance. The map contains 23-thousand pieces of information on the names of places, mountains and rivers in North Korea.



[Soundbite] Sa Jae-gwang (Min. of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs): “The Arirang-2 satellite collected images of North Korea from 2007 till this year. They were then turned into 3D images.”



The 3D satellite map looking into North Korea is available free of charge on the open information platform of the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs.



6. Airport Arrest



[Anchor Lead]



An entrepreneur who achieved culinary fame in the United States with his Korean fusion taco trucks has been arrested upon arrival in his home country. He was visiting Korea for the first time in 14 years. Here’s the story.



[Pkg]



A Korean entrepreneur identified by his family name An is an American success story. He developed “galbi tacos,” which is a fusion dish that combines Mexican tacos with Korean-style marinated ribs known as "galbi." An started his business with just two trucks. Six months later, his business was so popular that he even became famous at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. In a bid to expand his business, An made a trip out to Korea in April. However, he was arrested on the spot at Incheon International Airport. Now, he is being indicted for a crime he allegedly committed more than a decade ago. Back in 1998, shortly after the Asian financial crisis, An was charged with fleeing to the U.S. with over a million U.S. dollars that he had received as an investment for the construction of a new building. The statute of limitations for fraud is seven years, but An’s statute of limitations is still valid as the prosecution suspended his case when he fled to the U.S. Until now, An was able to thoroughly avoid prosecution. He didn’t visit Korea even when his mother died eight months after his escape. Believing that his statute of limitations was over and that it was finally safe to return, he decided to come back to Korea after hearing in February about the death of one of the investors who he cheated. Now, 14 years after he had committed his crime, An is finally apprehended.

He had lived out his life on Dokdo. Choe settled down in Dokdo in 1964. However, in 1981, in protest against Japan’s sovereignty claim over Korea’s easternmost islets, he registered his address under Dokdo territory to clearly show that he was living on the islets. Along with his wife and daughter, Choe became the first resident of Dokdo. He built a house and a potable water system, thereby turning the rocky islets into a habitable place. Choe died of a stroke 25 years ago. His family and friends published a memoir on his life.
