Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon went missing on Thursday before they found his body on a mountain. Police found a suicide note:
"I send my apologies to everyone. I thank everyone who shared my life. I am so sorry to my family to whom I only gave pain," read the apparent suicide note left on the desk of his official residence and released by the city government with the permission of his family.

The last time we checked on North Korea, all the participating parties in the Hanoi Summit were regrouping after the sudden collapse of the high-level meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Chairman Kim Jong Un. Now it is being reported that after a North Korean opposition group stormed the North Korean embassy in Spain last month, it handed over data stolen from the raid to the FBI.

We have been chronicling how South Korea has been teaming up with North Korea on a number if different projects in an apparent effort geared toward eventually opening up the rogue nation in a way that will not be a severe economic strain on its southern neighbor. Though the Hanoi Summit did not conclude with a declaration, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in promises he will work toward having the other two countries complete the peace deal.
