Obama’s best punch


South Korean President Lee Myung-bak follows U.S. President Barack Obama as Obama puts on his taekwondo moves Thursday after receiving a uniform for the Korean martial art from Lee before their luncheon. Obama learned taekwondo as a senator in Illinois. The Blue House presented Obama with a uniform along with a black belt and an honorary certification to commemorate his visit. By Cho Mun-gyu
