Our top story this morning
Korea's National Assembly begins its 100-day regular session on this Monday, but rival parties are in a prolonged impasse, and that could affect the government's 2015 budget proposal.
The parties are at odds over a special law aimed at investigating April's deadly Sewol-ho ferry disaster in much greater detail.
Lawmakers have not processed a single bill since July, with the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy staging sit-ins and boycotting all parliamentary proceedings.
The 2015 spending bill has to be passed by the end of November or the government risks starting the year with a provisional budget that funds only the basics and could halt payments to government employees, the elderly and people in need.
