from the inter-Korean summit to the Yemeni refugee crisis
2018 is now drawing to a close, an eventful year in the world of news. So what were the biggest stories of the year, as viewed by the panelists of "Foreign Correspondents"? The inter-Korean summit of 2018 was a unanimous choice, with foreign media outlets all across the world zooming in on the historic meeting which took place on April 27, that opened a new chapter in cross-border relations. The PyeongChang Winter Olympics was also chosen as one of the top news stories of the year, with the event showcasing many athletes, thrilling competition, as well as sports exchanges between the two Koreas. Also, the MeToo movement in South Korea, which was sparked by a female prosecutor's revelations about sexual abuse in the workplace, shook the country at its very foundation. In this week's edition of "Foreign Correspondents", we sit down with our panel of journalists to discuss all of these stories and others which highlighted the world of news in 2018.
