Four families from Myanmar who had sought refuge in a Thai refugee camp will be the first refugees to make their homes in Korea. They're the first refugees to be granted entry into the country under the newly legislated refugee act.

[Pkg]

Twenty-two Myanmarese refugees have arrived in Korea Wednesday morning through the Incheon International Airport. The refugees, which include 13 children, are members of four families. They are the first ones to resettle in Korea under the country's newly legislated refugee act. Under the new refugee resettlement system, Korea will review and accept refugees, who wish to come to Korea from an overseas refugee camp. The Korean Ministry of Justice announced that families were chosen for entry after considering the likelihood of social adjustment. The Ministry made final selections after conducting on-site interviews of prospective refugees with the help of the UN Refugee Agency this past July. They're all members of the Karen tribe, one of the ethnic minority groups in Myanmar. The families have reportedly been living in a refugee camp in Thailand for as long as 19 years. Immediately after their arrival, the refugees will be transported to the Incheon Immigration Center, where they will stay for up to one year and undergo an acculturation program for Korean living. Afterwards, they're likely to settle in the Gyeonggi area with a large Myanmarese population.

2. Naval Relocation

[Anchor Lead]

The Korean Navy's 7th Task Flotilla, which has three Aegis destroyers, has been relocated from Busan to Jeju. Until the relocation, it took South Korean destroyers 13 hours to reach waters off Ieo Island from Busan, but from now on they will be able to reach the island from Seogwipo in just four hours.

[Pkg]

South Korean naval vessels steam toward Jeju Island. The 7600-ton Aegis destroyer Yulgok Yii, which departed from Busan, finally makes its first arrival at its new homeport at a naval base on Jeju Island. The base is located against a backdrop of the snow-covered Mt. Halla. With several destroyers including Sejong the Great and Munmu the Great arriving at the Jeju naval base, the relocation of the Navy's 7th Task Flotilla is complete. Equipped with three Aegis destroyers and submarines, the 7th Task Flotilla will carry out its operations from the naval base on Jeju Island from now on. Before, it took 13 hours for naval vessels to reach waters off Ieo Island from Busan. But now they can arrive there in just four hours.

[Soundbite] Nam Dong-woo (Chief, Navy's 7th Task Flotilla) : "We will do our utmost to fulfill our duty of protecting Korea's sea lanes and marine sovereignty."

Construction of a cruise berth at the Jeju military civilian tourism port, where the Jeju naval base is located, is in its final stages and is slated for completion early next year.

3. Credit Rating Warning

[Anchor Lead]

Global credit ratings company Moody's has recently upgraded Korea's sovereign rating to its highest level ever. But President Park Geun-hye claims she is concerned that Korea's rating may slide if the nation's reforms and economic revival plans are not carried out as planned.

[Pkg]

President Park Geun-hye stressed that certain factors came into play when Moody's upgraded Korea's sovereign credit rating. The driving force behind the rating upgrade to Aa2, the highest level Korea has ever reached, was the credit ratings agency's recognition of Seoul's efforts to revive the economy and improve external financing conditions through four reforms. She added that the rating reflects global trust in Korea's innovations, while warning that the international community's trust could erode if the country's reforms are not carried out properly.

[Soundbite] Park Geun-hye (President) : "Moody's explicitly said that the upgrade was based on trust. This is also a warning that the rating can go down again if reform measures regress."

President Park expressed her frustrations at the political circle's lack of response to the desperate appeals of economic groups and small businessmen to pass economic revival and labor reform bills. In relation to the recent government reshuffle, she asked the departing ministers to fulfill their duties until their successors are appointed.

4. Intl’ Theme Park

[Anchor Lead]

The construction of the Songsan Green City international theme park will finally launch after more than eight years of delay due to land prices. If the project is carried out as planned, the area will be home to Universal Studios and a hallyu theme park by 2020.

[Pkg]

The Universal Studios Korea consortium has been selected as the primary negotiator for the Songsan Green City international theme park project. The consortium comprises five private corporations, including Daewoo Engineering and Construction and China's largest state-run builder China State Construction Engineering, as well as the Korea Water Resources Corporation and the governments of Gyeonggi Province and Hwaseong City. The theme park facilities will be built on a 4.2-square kilometer area in Sinwoe-dong, Hwaseong and will cost approximately 4.2 billion U.S. dollars. A hallyu park targeting foreign tourists and the world's fifth Universal Studios will feature state-of-the-art tourism infrastructure dedicated to movies and broadcasting.

[Soundbite] Choi Kye-woon (CEO, K-Water) : "This project will not only promote relevant industries through tourism infrastructure and hallyu content, but also enhance Korea's national competitiveness and boost the regional economy."

The Korea Water Resources Corporation expects the number of foreign tourists in the area to grow by more than 10 percent annually following the opening of the international theme parks. But analysts say that the success or failure of this costly project will be determined by whether its supervisors manage to devise a concrete financing plan.

5. NK-China Border

[Anchor Lead]

What is happening near the North Korea-China border after the sudden departure of the Moranbong Band from Beijing? Here is KBS’s EXCLUSIVE first look since the incident, at the Dandong Customs House, the gateway of North Korea-China trade.

[Pkg]

This is a goods distribution center operated by the Dandong Customs House of China. Goods are loaded onto a North Korean truck parked next to Chinese trucks. A ceaseless stream of goods is carried up to the North Korean truck. The shipments include audio equipment and electronics as well as generators, water pumps, and even fruits like oranges and apples. At the nearby Dandong Customs House a long line of vehicles waits to cross the border to North Korea.

[Soundbite] Local Chinese Guide (Voice altered) : "They see about 40-50 North Korean vehicles and 50-60 Chinese cars a day."

This is inside the customs area. The lot is filled with trucks carrying industrial goods, such as steel, machine parts, and transformers. There is even a huge trailer that may be converted to serve military purposes and buses without license plates. They are all ready to head into North Korea. About ten electric cars manufactured by a Chinese automaker have completed their customs inspection. Passports of the drivers who have passed inspection and other pertinent documents wait to be picked up near the office entrance. It appears that bilateral trade between North Korea and China remains robust even after the abrupt cancellation of the Moranbong Band performances.

6. Unmarked Patrols

[Anchor Lead]

Starting next year Korean police will crack down on traffic rule violators through disguised enforcement through the use of unmarked cars rather than regular patrol vehicles. The results remain to be seen.

[Pkg]

A passenger car repeatedly crosses over lanes before crashing into a guard rail and becoming severely damaged. A seafood transport truck suddenly cuts into the lane designated for buses and collides with a bus. The fish in the truck are spilled all over the motorway. Reckless driving remains rampant despite its destructive results. Starting next year, police in Korea will completely overhaul the way they conduct crackdowns on traffic rule violators. Police will operate in disguised vehicles instead of patrol cars. The disguised police cars will look like regular passenger cars, but they will be able to flash their lights whenever they discover a violator.

[Soundbite] Yoo Dong-bae (Nat'l Police Agency) : "Undercover crackdowns are expected to help police catch drivers who abruptly change lanes or drive in exclusively designated lanes more easily."

The new measure is expected to help curb reckless driving by holding drivers on constant alert, as it's impossible for them to distinguish disguised police cars from regular ones. Police will launch undercover crackdowns on a pilot basis next year on highways with high accident rates and will expand operations gradually.

7. Winter Sports

[Anchor Lead]

Winter sports venues are naturally exciting places to be in the winter. A skating rink has opened in Yeouido Park following the one at Seoul Plaza. Let’s take a look.

[Pkg]

A silver rink has been set up in the middle of the park. Armed with hats and gloves, people are having a blast skating on the ice. It's the first-ever skating rink to open at Yeouido Park in Seoul. Some 2,000 square meters large, the rink can accommodate 700 people at the same time. It will operate through February 14 for 55 days, from 10AM to 9PM every day. The admission fee is 1000 won, or about 85 cents, while an additional 85 cents is required to borrow skates and a helmet. There's also a booth where quality goods produced by social enterprises are sold. Online reservations are also possible and visitors can make them at home ahead of time. The Yeouido Park skating rink was first proposed by the Korea Development Bank as a project for the local community.

[Soundbite] Hong Kyttack (Chairman, Korea Development Bank) : "We believed a skating rink will contribute greatly to the local community. We hope it helps the local economy as well."

Various events will take place at the rink on Christmas Eve and throughout the last week of 2015.

9. Last-Minute Decoration

[Anchor Lead]

Christmas is only two days away and so, today's show is for those who haven't gotten around to decorating their homes with Christmas knickknacks yet. Here are tips on making small Christmas trees that don't take up much space, creating holiday cheer with small household items and affordable and easy-to-make decorations.

[Pkg]

So you don't like run-of-the-mill Christmas trees? You want to make your own, unique Christmas tree? Here's a way to fulfill that wish in an easy and affordable way.

[Soundbite] "I'm making a Christmas tree on the wall."

All you need to make this wall-hugging Christmas tree is a roll of masking tape and lights. Create an outline of a tree on the wall with the masking tape. Then tape the string lights in zigzags as if decorating a tree. Put up more Christmas ornaments, preferably made of paper and other lightweight materials, to complete your Christmas tree on the wall. Balloons can also be a great material for a Christmas tree. First, blow up balloons-- a lot of them, if you can.

[Soundbite] Kim Moon-joo (Balloon Crafts Specialist) : "I'm going to make similar-sized balloons. For that, I need these plastic bottles."

Place the bottles apart and adjust the balloon size by blowing the balloons to pass through the gap. Bind five of these same-sized balloons together and make seven groups of five balloons. That's 35 balloons in all. Then tie up these five balloons with a long balloon and spread them out flat like flower petals before stacking them in tiers one after another. Put smaller balloons of different colors between the gaps and top the balloon tree with a big star to complete an unusual and fun-to-make balloon Christmas tree. This time, let's make a snow globe perfect for adorning the tabletop.

[Soundbite] Choi Su-mi (Homemaker) : "This is a leftover preservative jar, which can be used to make a snow globe."

Glue a store-bought snowman decoration onto the clean jar lid. Mix three parts water and one part glycerine and pour the mixture into the jar.

[Soundbite] "Mix glycerine with water so that the sprinkles can float down slowly."

Put sprinkles in the jar filled two-thirds way up with the glycerine mixture and close the lid to complete the snow globe. When the jar is shaken, the sprinkles are churned up to create a snowing effect. Create a jolly holiday atmosphere and enjoy Christmas cheer with these affordable, homemade Christmas trees and decorations.
