Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (October 26, 2016)
1. South Korean President urgently held a press conference and apologized to the nation over Choi Soon-sil, an alleged secret heavyweight with influence over the presidential office. However, the president mentioned nothing about the investigation to find truth involving Choi’s allegations after the apology.
She frequently mentioned about procedures for investigation. Did she also ask Choi to edit statement of apology?
2. The report about the alleged secret heavyweight with influence over the presidential office, hit political circle in South Korea, as Choi Soon-sil was given access to the President Park’s 44 drafts of speech before it was publicly delivered. South Korea’s opposition parties argue that Ms Park should either resign or face impeachment.
Think about what happened to the former President Roh Moo-hyun. She should face impeachment.
