(CNN) - South Korean President Park Geun-hye continues her official visit of the United States today. In her first overseas trip, President Park will address a joint session of congress. Yesterday, President Park and President Barack Obama held a news conference in the East Room of the White House. The two talked security, culture and trade.

[:22] "Today we agreed to continue the implementation of our historic trade agreement which is already yielding benefits for both of our countries," said President Obama.

Obama also made a joke about k-pop star PSY, saying his daughters have taught him the ubiquitous dance moves. But k-pop is also big business and the latest export from a country that's grown its economy through trade.

(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day. Here's some of the stories we are covering in today's show:

  • Three more people are behind bars today, in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings. All are 19-year-old males – Dias Kadyrbayev, Azamat Tazhayakov, and Robel Phillipos. Charges against the teens suggest they helped the accused bombers and obstructed justice by throwing-out evidence. CNN's Brian Todd that evidence included a backpack filled with fireworks, a jar of vaseline, and a homework assignment:

"They removed that (backpack), at least one of them, put that in a black trash bag and into a dumpster, and that was then taken to a landfill. Investigators later found that backpack in the landfill with those items in it." FULL POST

Smoke rises after shelling on al-Turkman mountains in the Latakia province, western Syria on April 25, 2013. The White House said that Syria had likely used chemical weapons against rebel forces on a 'small scale,' but emphasized US spy agencies were still not 100 percent sure of the assessment.

(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

  • Are we about to see U.S. troops go into Syria? U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel backed up today what an Israeli military official said earlier in the week – that chemical weapons were being used inside Syria. If that's the case, has the so-called 'red line' now been crossed? And does that mean a new involvement for the U.S. inside the war-torn country? John Ullyot is a former Marine Corps intelligence officer who has spent time in Syria:

"The U.S. is really on the seat now to take action. Because if it doesn't take action, and indeed chemical weapons have been used, then it looses credibility with all sorts of important players in the region going forward." FULL POST

Three years ago Peggy Casey found herself in a situation that's increasingly common in the United States. She needed to sort out elder care for her mother. So Casey went hunting for options. She found an assisted living home that she thought would do nicely.

[:46] "My idea was I'll pluck her out of this home that has all these problems and I'll put her down in this gorgeous place full of luxury and of course she didn't see it that way at all."

That's putting it mildly. Maguerite Stentz laughs at the memory:

[:57] " I would have hated it. I would have had my own little apartment upstairs and I'm not a people person. It would have been unbearable."
