    Hundreds of students stage a demonstration after a ceremony to pay tribute to the late activist Park Jong-chul (top right photo) at Korea University in Seoul in January 1987. / Korea Times file By Michael Breen In the authoritarian period between the Korean War and the election of Roh Tae-woo in 1987, South Korea's political leaders refused, or perhaps were unable, to accept and honor the idea that political opponents could be loyal to the state. An opposition party was tolerated to a point because the country was aping American democracy, but those in power were always tempted to interpret threats to their own position as threats to the country itself. Thus the first dictator, Syngman Rhee, executed an opposition leader for suggesting North-South talks; Park Chung-hee smeared Jeffersonian democrats like Kim Dae-jung as communists; Chun Doo-hwan blacklisted even conservative political figures while co-opting politicians into a formal opposition group (dismissed as "opposition by day, ruling party by night"),...More

Figure skating star Kim Yu-na secured her leading status in February by winning the gold medal in the Vancouver Winter Olympics with the highest score ever by a female figure skater at 228.56 points. AP spoke of "a women's figure skating performance that likely will be remembered as one of the best of all time",...More

  • Lee Na-young: 'Acting is so difficult for me'

    2010/01/14, Source,
    Actress Lee Na-young is unique. She has a strong individuality as an actress in movies--showing hesitating attitudes, speaking in a low mumble, and expressing emotions through her eyes. For Lee, portraying unrequited love is her specialty. Lee shows her personality well through the movies "Please Teach Me English" and "Some Special". She played Young-ju, who secretly loves Mun-su (Jang Hyeok), in "Please Teach Me English" (2002, Director: Kim Seong-su), and Han E-yeon, who loves Dong Chi-sung for 10 years, in the movie "Someone Special". Now, Lee Na-young once again plays a character who hesitates to express her love. The character that she plays cannot easily express her feelings due to being a transsexual.,...More
  • Lee Na-young turns man in film "Lady Daddy"

[Chae Ki-won/10Asia] A son you were not even aware of being born comes looking for you one day. Yes, many things change over a decade but what has changed is the gender of the dad. Hence, there was no instantaneous recognition between the two nor a tearful reunion between Ji-hyun (played by Lee Na-young) and his son Yoo-bin (played by Kim Hee-soo). The two start living together but will Ji-hyun be able to keep his secret between his son and boyfriend Joon-suh (played by Kim Ji-seok-I)? "Lady Daddy" is romantic comedy film which touches upon as lightly as it possibly can, on the issue of the not-so-light topic of transgenders. The main cast work in harmony with each other -- Lee Na-young who acts the role of a clumsy and soft-hearted dad, Kim Hee-soo as the chic and mature son and Kim Ji-seok-I who plays a man head over heels in love with his woman, while the excellent comical acting by supporting actors Kim Heung-soo and Kim Hee-won adds extra flavor to the film. Below are excerpts of the press conference for "Lady Daddy" held at a Megabox theater on Monday attended by the main cast and director Lee Kwang-jae. Q: Is there anything you focused on in particular in tell your story about transgenders in the film? It's not easy to portray such a topic with warmth and happiness in a commercial movie like yours. Lee Kwang-jae (Lee KJ): Rather than focusing on what each character should be like, I wanted to show that people make certain special decisions in their lives and live according to that choice. And I wanted to show that Ji-hyun's decision to become a woman was just one of the many choice's that anyone could make. I wanted to portray this with warmth by basing her story on universal emotions such as love between family members or a man and a woman.,...More
