The South Korean government has announced the expansion of its Air Defense Identification Zone. The area has been redrawn to include a trio of island formations.

[Pkg]

Ieo Island, a cluster of rocky islands located in the far South Sea, has not been included in South Korea's Air Defense Identification Zone, even though it has clearly been under South Korea's jurisdiction. Seoul has announced its new ADIZ, which extends farther south to include Ieo Island.

[Soundbite] Kim Min-seok (Spokesman, Ministry of National Defense) : "The KADIZ will be adjusted, taking into consideration the special nature of the Korean military's air strategy, the scope of the flight information region, and international customs."

Subsequently, Korea's ADIZ has been extended 330 kilometers farther down south and drawn at 30 degrees latitude. The new identification zone coincides with the flight information region set up by the International Civil Aviation Organization. The new expanded zone now includes Ieo Island as well as the territorial air over Mara and Hongdo Islands in the south. Seoul said the redrawn zone follows international aviation regulations, does not restrict the operation of civilian aircraft nor violates the territorial airspace or interests of neighboring countries. Korea's Ministry of National Defense said this will go into effect on December 15th, after the change is notified through various aviation channels.

[Anchor Lead]

The suicide of an elderly man in Milyang has sparked more clashes between protestors and police. The man’s family says he took his own life in protest of the power transmission lines.

[Pkg]

At a hospital funeral hall in Milyang, South Gyeongsang Province, a news conference was held by the bereaved family of an elderly man who committed suicide on December second. Refuting the results of a police investigation, the family insisted that 71-year-old Yu Han-suk killed himself in protest to the construction of power transmission lines in his hometown.

[Soundbite] Bereaved Family Member : "He said he couldn’t live here and raise pigs anymore because of the 765-kilovolt transmission tower that is harmful to people's health. He agonized over the construction of the power transmission lines and towers."

Police had said that Yu, who was a pig farmer, apparently committed suicide due to several reasons, such as a fall in pig prices as well as other family problems. The members of the bereaved family said that they will respect the man's dying wish and postpone his funeral. They vowed to be with those opposing the construction of the power transmission lines until the project is halted. Members of a committee opposing the construction violently clashed with police officers while attempting to set up a memorial altar for Yu in downtown Milyang. During the clash, four protesters were wounded and were moved to a hospital. The committee urged the government to issue an apology for the death of Yu and hold related officials responsible. It will hold a memorial service for Yu on Wednesday.

3. Leadership Shakeup

[Anchor Lead]

North Korea officially confirmed the ouster of Kim Jong-un’s uncle Jang Song-thaek, who was recently fired from all of his posts. Pyongyang says Jang and followers committed acts against the party and revolution.

[Pkg]

North Korea held a meeting of its Workers' Party Political Bureau and made the decision fire Jang Song-thaek, from all his posts and expel him from the party. He was formerly the regime's second most powerful man. The Korea Central News Agency aired it as breaking news today at around 6a.m. North Korea reported that Jang and his group committed anti-party and anti-revolutionary factional activities that undermined Kim Jong-un's sole leadership. It also said the ousted leader committed criminal acts against the nation and the people, hindering North Korea's efforts towards building a strong nation and improving the lives of its people. Jang was accused of trying to create a faction and expanding his power base by planting his own people in several positions. The Pyongyang leadership also criticized the ousted second-in-command for having inappropriate relationships with several different women and living a depraved life full of heavy drinking and lavish parties. He was also accused of taking drugs and gambling at casinos while he was abroad and receiving treatment for his ailments. In its report, the KCNA used the expression "Jang and his gang," which suggests yet another round of purges. The news was aired six days after South Korea's National Intelligence Agency had reported the possibility of Jang's fall from power to the National Assembly.

4. Dangerous Gas

[Anchor Lead]

An increasing number of carbon monoxide poisoning cases are being reported, as the economic slump has left many in this country with no alternative but to use charcoal briquettes to heat their homes.

[Pkg]

This family uses a briquette stove. All the four members of the family were poisoned to carbon monoxide leaked from the stove on November 23rd. One of them died in the end. Three weeks earlier, an elderly couple in their 70s died from carbon monoxide poisoning in Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province. In October and November, this hospital treated 41 people poisoned with carbon monoxide that came from their briquette stoves. It treats more than 160 patients with carbon monoxide poisoning every year.

[Soundbite] Prof. Choe Il-guk (Dankook University Hospital) : "In serious cases, patients can lose consciousness, become paralyzed, damage their nerves or go into shock; even die."

An expert went to check the condition of a briquette stove installed at a house. The ventilation fan in the kitchen lets poisonous gas produced from the stove into the house. It is more dangerous if the stoves are installed inside the house.

[Soundbite] Choe Su-rim (Stove Setting Expert) : "It’s important to tightly seal windows in places connected to briquette stove rooms."

To minimize the aftereffects from carbon monoxide poisoning, you should go to the hospital as soon as you start getting a headache and feeling nausea after heating your rooms with briquettes.

5. Hacker App

[Anchor Lead]

A rising number of people are falling victim to sinister smartphone applications that hackers use to gain access to personal information and credit card numbers. The police are on the case.

[Pkg]

This man was shocked after receiving a certain text message. It said that he bought 15 smartphone game apps worth over 75 U.S. dollars at Google Store paid to his credit card, but he had never made such purchases. There are other similar cases. Some said that game applications were purchased overseas without their knowledge. Victims believe that their credit card numbers registered in Google could have been the cause. A service called "Google Wallet," allows customers to pay with their credit cards more conveniently. Their card numbers and expiration dates are stored in the wallet.

[Soundbite] Lee In-suk (Mediation Committee of Contents Dispute) : "People have to input their passwords when they make purchases online with their credit cards. However, on Google, this is an option. People can use credit cards that were already registered."

The Korean police have also launched investigations into the theft of credit card numbers. Google Korea said it is conducting its own investigation into such cases, but it turned down a request for an interview.

6. School Food

[Anchor Lead]

One of every ten Korean elementary school students skips breakfast. A trial program at one school in Seoul offers students free breakfast, and is making impressive progress.

[Pkg]

Breakfast is delivered to an elementary school. While a teacher sets up the table, students begin arriving one by one. It's a simple meal of brown rice, dried laver and soup, but it's a new experience to those students who are used to skipping breakfast.

[Soundbite] Cheo Jeong-hyeok (Student, Elementary School) : "Breakfast at school is delicious. It makes me study harder and feel better."

Learning table manners from the teacher is another bonus. This school provides breakfast to 20 students. This morning session is subsidized by the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education, but until now, the meal program had only consisted of snacks, like bread and milk. That's because the budget for this gathering before classes begin is less than ten dollars a day. But now, community assistance has made it possible to fund a full breakfast program, and the school is seeing some impressive changes in its students.

[Soundbite] Yu Seon-ju (Principal, Elementary School) : "They participate more in class and they say they enjoy school more because their brains are functioning better."

Experts recommend that growing children should have breakfast, starting from their elementary school years. They say this will promote their health and help prevent diseases. However, 11.7% of elementary school students in Seoul are still not eating breakfast because of poverty and other family reasons.

9. Love of Camping

[Anchor Lead]

Camping equipment sales are on the rise as camping sites proliferate throughout the country. Even the winter's cold cannot derail this country's growing love affair with camping.

[Pkg]

The members of an off-road camping club gather for a weekend meeting. Since the weather is so unpredictable in the winter, they carefully check their safety gear. They are ready to go once they've packed their heating devices.

[Soundbite] "Let's go!"

This is off-road camping, a macho way to enjoy the great outdoors. The excitement of racing the rocky, unpaved terrain is what makes off-road camping so popular among men.

[Soundbite] Chu Yong-sik (Member, Off-road Camping Club) : "You can't do this with an ordinary car. I like how the car, the person, and nature become one."

They quickly arrived at the base camp. It's important to set up the tent as quickly as possible in the wintertime.

[Soundbite] Yun Jong-min (Member, Off-road Camping Club) : "In winter we want to get ready and warm up as quickly as possible. So my advice is to set up the tent and sleeping bags as fast as possible."

They also prefer easy-to-cook meals that are quick to prepare. The meal practically cooks itself once you add hot water, so it's one of the hottest items sought out by wintertime campers. It doesn't look much, but it's tasty and satisfying. It gets colder as the night falls, but this is what these campers have been waiting for. Wintertime camping is not about warm beds or full-spread meals. The fun is in roughing it. For those who wanted to try wintertime camping, but were reluctant to purchase expensive camping gear, there are now more places to enjoy camping without all the equipment. The latest camping trend is glam-ping, a combination of the words "glamor" and "camping." Campers are provided with all the equipment they need - from the tent and sleeping bags to heating devices. Glam-ping is particularly popular in winter, because it allows you to come as you are, without having to go through the hassles of packing heaters and extra gear for the cold.

[Soundbite] Kim Sun-nam (Homemaker) : "The best part is that the beds and food are ready. So it's really convenient for us."

It's all there - you have meat and vegetables, and even seasoning and utensils. Without all the set-up, you have more time to enjoy the surroundings and the experience.

[Soundbite] Yang Hye-jin (Glamping Camper) : "Unlike in summertime, the charm of wintertime camping is enjoying a barbecue next to a warm fire in the cold weather. I can enjoy nature more in the warmth."

But there are some cautionary measures you must take for a safe camping experience.

[Soundbite] Han Dong-hui (Camp Ground Manager) : "Wherever you are, you have to be very careful about fire in wintertime camping. Since you sleep inside a tent, you also have to think about carbon monoxide poisoning when using oil heaters. If you ventilate well, you'll have a great camping experience."

Wintertime camping can be quite safe and romantic for your entire family. So put on your thinking cap and plan out an exciting winter getaway.
