  1. No wonder they protest that, because SKorean govt. has been exploiting the position of developing country in WTO till being pointed out by Trump.

  2. South Korea has evolved and succeed making them a great reference for the future, even making them to be the top in the list to other forms of cooperation. Locals must solve their changes in a more positive way.
