Pohang Earthquake
The Pohang earthquake, which shocked the nation

On November 15, a magnitude 5.4 earthquake occurred in Korea's southeastern city of Pohang. It was the country's second largest earthquake on record, displacing more than 1,000 people in Pohang and and damaging more than 9,000 buildings. The government has responded quickly, providing rental housing for the victims and declaring Pohang as a special disaster zone. With the earthquake occurring just one day before the College Scholastic Ability Test, test-takers in the Pohang area were thrown into chaos. The safety of the test sites could not be guaranteed, as a number of them were damaged by the tremors. In the end, the exam was postponed. leaving the nation in shock, and we'll delve into the damages and the government's response to the earthquake.

Controversies triggered by the Pohang earthquake

As the recent earthquake in Pohang occurred 14 months after the Gyeongju earthquake last year, the belief that Korea was an 'earthquake safe zone' was shattered. At the same time, it brought about a realization that Korea was highly vulnerable to earthquakes. The most worrisome point is the seismic design of the buildings, which gauges their ability to withstand earthquakes. According to data from government ministries, only one out of five privately-owned buildings in the country were found to be earthquake-resistant. In addition, the earthquake resistance rate of public facilities such as schools, roads, and railways did not exceeded 50%. Meanwhile, after the Pohang earthquake, the long-running debate over nuclear power has also resurfaced. Those who oppose nuclear power, argue that Korea is no longer an earthquake safe zone, and called for the end of nuclear power.... as this week, we'll discuss various issues that have been raised by the recent Pohang earthquake
