Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (December 15, 2016)
1. As the impeachment ball of President Park Geun-hye was handed to the Constitutional Court, this week’s candlelight vigil is expected to take place in front of the court. Since a majority of liberal and conservative groups report their assembly on the 17th, people voice concerns that there will be a conflict between two groups.
I am certain there is a force who wants collision to happen. Don’t get involved with the conflict.
2. President Park Geun-hye had a visible dark bruise on her mouth when she was holding a Cabinet meeting at Cheong Wa Dae on May 13, 2014, at the height of searching for Sewol Ferry. Kim Young-jae, Choi Soon sil’s doctor, said it appeared to be a side-effect of filler treatment and added that he did not do such cosmetic treatment.
She was on the verge of tears of blood as she had a bruise on her mouth. Is it?
3. Acting President Hwang Kyo-an does not follow the former Prime Minister Ko Gun’s policy continuity during the impeachment of the former President Roh Moo-hyun but rather actively pursues Park’s policy. Hwang is expected to have a significant conflict with opposition parties as he pursues Park’s existing polices such as THAAD deployment and government-initiated history textbooks.
If the president is impeached, the prime minister should be impeached as well. Stop playing coplay of the president. This does not look good.
4. Witnesses that participated on the Parliament in the 3rd hearing on the 14th reiterated their position by saying, “I do not know and it is not my responsibility.” Some witnesses gave different answers, and one of them was perjuring, which raised voice that he must face strict liability for perjury.
They are all amnesic patients and liars. This is the truth about the Park administration.
