Google's horrible attempt at translating that link above:

Appeared to be focused on providing ways to secure "prime time" Preparedness is the situation in the building collapse. Especially including Gangnam, Songpa-gu, Seoul gyodaeyeok balsaenggeon last 22 to 83 of the sinkhole's found on the road since 2008, experts reported occurrence is itgido area concerned. <1 dated August 20, Bloomberg surface '[Single] Gangnam' Sinkhole Terror '... 82 place off and sleep', see>

According to the Seoul Metropolitan Government has prepared a sink hole caused by 23 days the last 21 days from the end of the second Lotte World and gotten practice problems and lower levels and the upper floors collapsed buildings around the fire, the fire department is Songpa Action. Joint training is conducted once per year against a national emergency, one tube civil and military administration organized gotten to safety practice.

In the 'Golden secure room at the same time according to the surrounding buildings collapsed sink hole "in Songpa Fire's found in the last second Lotte World around five and seven Seokchon underpass near the sink-hole total of 13 large buildings around the same time as the collapse is concerned persons, property damage occurred. Because of this, I saw that there is a need to prepare a large number of casualties, property damage occur if there is an accident happen collapse gotta attack the nearby infrastructure such as roads, sewer and underground maeseolmul and the communication, power, etc., fire authorities. Explained that "the universal is not just arrive on the scene first, as in the past" if both buildings crumble around the sink hole is due to fire authorities. This change is analyzed as a recognition of the Fire Department after the deal has led to a large disaster responders insufficient number of years in the Coast Guard sinking accident in April.

This was pointed out that measures to minimize the damage to life, property damage and prevent the spread understanding of the situation, rather than on-site activities, such as the collapse factor firefighting authorities. Another added that if the roads because of the traffic chaos this caused destruction gotta be difficult to identify the vehicle dispatched beforehand a detour, and should also take advantage workforce around the site, such as police and volunteer firefighters, volunteers autonomous traffic.

Each public institution has collapsed accident site activity guidelines stated. Responsible for receiving and dispersing the homeless can mobilize private resources management and support Ward Funeral deaths, and is in charge of the scene and surrounding traffic control, police have complained force trends. In addition it is also based on the emergency repair facilities, including electricity, gas, telecommunications, water supply and road emergency repair of water and power and support, and Korea Gas Corporation, KT, etc., and the road establishments. To conduct civil support activities that may be involved in the early companies such as heavy equipment, the Red Cross is only in private.

Finally, after all this is done is to configure the recovery activities related organizations and TF (Task Force) team take, and the causes and prevention of accidents to provide a method to analyze the institutional improvement issues.

"The ways to take advantage of any reference to the work of the Fire gotten practice" Fire officials said about it."

thanks english translation that article.

I highly recommend you to read that article's netizens's comments(korean).
I assure you you will be laugh a whole day.

If there break earthquake in seoul, then I will escape into LWT! Because LWT seismic design to endure magnitute 7.
But Most korean afraid LWT collapse instantly. so they opposite LWT's open. seriously

Thanks! An Austrian company is setting up a new office in Seoul and they want me to co-manage the place. But i already have a job that i really like at a consulting firm in Austria (i just started), so i'm not sure if i will give up my current job for the (somewhat risky) job in Seoul.

I already worked in Korea for almost 1 year in business development and i loved it!

From the newspaper Chosun Ilbo:

Quote:
Samsung in Trouble Over Songpa Sinkholes

A team of experts from the Seoul metropolitan government tentatively concluded last Friday that a mistake during the tunnel boring process for Subway Line No. 9 led a massive 80 m-long sinkhole beneath an underpass in Songpa district in southern Seoul.
Quote:
But Samsung's woes mean relief for the Lotte Group, as initially construction of the super-high Lotte World Tower nearby was being blamed.

"It proves we are innocent as we have said based on objective, concrete data on the construction of the tower," a Lotte executive said.
http://english.chosun.com/site/data/...082501748.html

It seems that now the culprit for the sinkholes is officially the subway construction. Hopefully, people will stop blaming LWT for no reason.

EDIT: url was wrong.

Finally those stupid rumors will stop, but it's disappointing that such an book-learned populace is still so prone to believing in something that can be shown true or false, and making judgments based on those beliefs.

C'mon Korea, critical thinking!!

Back from Spain, the land of marvelous cathedral & alcazar and delicious tapas & sangria, I went to jamsil to take photos of LWT with no success because of heavy shower

Therefore, I'll visit there tomorrow to restart my weekly update. Sorry for the delay
