OF COURSE, THE UR OPPOSED IT WHEN W NEGOTIATED IT:

US-South Korea Free-Trade Pact Trails EU Agreement (EVAN RAMSTAD, 4/28/11, WSJ)

A European Union free-trade agreement won a key victory from South Korean lawmakers Thursday, further bolstering a proposed deal that U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said could put pressure on U.S. lawmaker to approve a similar package with South Korea.

The step came just as a U.S. delegation led by Mr. Locke toured Seoul to rally Korean support for the U.S.-South Korea free-trade deal. Both pacts are similarly-sized, covering about $70 billion in annual two-way trade and represent some of the largest bilateral trade deals ever completed.
