The importance of a name for the new Future Ministry (미래창조과학부)
Not surprisingly, the question of the name for the new Future Ministry (미래창조과학부) continues to be debated in the local press, for reasons I've touched on in several earlier posts. Today The Korea Times carried an article on the topic. Some papers have been calling it the Ministry of Future Planning and Science, even though the word "planning" is not part of the Korean name. Presumably this is because candidate Ahn Cheol-soo proposed a Ministry of Future Planning, while campaigning for the presidency last Fall. For background on that, see this Hankyoreh article.
