We start at Korea's National Assembly
where lawmakers gave three of President Park Geun-hye's Cabinet nominees the green light on Wednesday to assume their new roles.
Those given the nod were Lee Byung-kee for National Intelligence Service chief, Lee Ki-kweon for minister of employment and labor, and Kim Hee-jung for minister of gender equality and family.
The president tapped eight nominees for various Cabinet positions last month.
All but one have gone through their hearings, and are now awaiting confirmation.
Culture minister-designate Chung Sung-keun, currently the CEO of Arirang TV and Radio, is appearing before lawmakers on this Thursday.
