Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (December 14, 2016)
1. South Korean prosecutors say that the relationship between President Park Geun-hye and Choi Soon-sil is easier to understand if they look at them as a husband and wife. They added that it is comprehensible if they look at Cheong Wae Dae as a closed family company with patriarchal husband Choi Soon-sil, wife Park Geun-hye, and cousins (three close secretaries).
Well, why don’t they play on their own? Why did they have to deceive the whole nation?
2. The commander of the U.S. Forces said there will be no delay in the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system despite the political crisis in South Korea about the impeachment motion at the National Assembly. Gen. Brooks said last month that he would complete the deployment of THAAD within 8 to 10 months.
Deploying THAAD is what you think. South Korea does not need the system.
3. The hairdresser who did President Park’s hair on the day Sewol Ferry sank still goes work to Cheong Wa Dae. Even if Park’s power is suspended, she still can receive service such as presidential security service and doing hair.
Is there anything she can do alone, my princess? This is what people want to know.
