From the Hani, a tale of the ROK buying military stuff:

“Chang Soo-man, one of President Lee Myung-bak’s close associates, stepped down from his position as Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) commissioner over allegations of his involvement in improprieties connected with a construction site restaurant.”

From the Donga, a tale of the ROK trying to sell military stuff:

The National Intelligence Service is known to have an office at Seoul’s Lotte Hotel, where an Indonesian presidential delegation recently stayed. The office was right above the 19th floor where the delegation was staying. This explains why young agents could easily access the floor early Monday morning, when they were allegedly caught stealing confidential information.

A classic oxymoron.
