Dec. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Anger at North Korea’s killing of civilians in an artillery barrage last month has spurred applications to join South Korea’s Marine Corps. Almost 3,500 men are competing for 977 openings in the elite corps this month, a 37 percent increase on December last year, according to figures from the Military Manpower Administration. There were about 2,800 applicants for November’s monthly intake. Bloomberg's Mike Firn reports from Seoul. (Source: Bloomberg)
