As the ripple of COVID-19 careens around the globe, it’s forcing humankind to innovate and change the way we work and live. Schools provide lessons online; an increasing number of companies allow their employees to work from home; and some even tie the knot online. Also, face masks have become a new staple not only for the protection of oneself but also for others. The pandemic is teaching people that their safety cannot be guaranteed if that of others isn’t. Learn more about the new normal in the age of COVID-19 and the spirit of solidarity and cooperation it is awakening.

When COVID-19 was spiking in full scale in South Korea in late February, several foreign baseball players returned to their home country. Despite concerns of his loved ones, SK Wyverns slugger Jamie Romak returned to South Korea in mid-March. In the wake of the outbreak, the situation in South Korea was still serious when he arrived in Incheon. But the first baseman recalls in an interview with us that he wasn't worried since health authorities and people were all doing their parts to help curb the infection. Romak, who calls South Korea his 'second home,' takes us a few weeks back when he first arrived, and how he feels about entering the much-delayed season.

- Letters for families of disabled people
It may not be too easy for people with disabilities to express their gratitude and send gifts to their parents. As we mark Parents' Day in Korea, volunteers stepped up to write letters on behalf of the disabled and deliver them to their parents. In the time of COVID-19, we take a closer look at how the volunteers and welfare center staff lend their hands to prepare special gifts for the families of the disabled.
