Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (January 4, 2017)
1. South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s first pleading session ended in 10 minutes as she did not appear at the impeachment trial. Chief Justice Park Han-cheol said the court hearing would begin no matter what, asking for important witnesses despite huge investigation records by prosecutors.
I wonder why she does not attend the trial because she said she had so much to tell. Well, I do not understand a word she says.
2. Jung Yura who ended up in a detention center in Denmark, desperately worrying about her baby said she could go always return to Korea if she could stay with her child, virtually asking for investigation without detention during a court hearing. The special prosecution team turned down Jung’s request, saying this was absurd.
She has not come to her senses yet. Why does not Jung worry about her country as much as she worries about her child?
3. Choi Jong-hee, the president of Research Center of Languages and Cultures, harshly criticized opening remarks by President Park Geun-hye at the New Year press conference in December 2016. Choi said Ms. Park uses incorrect grammar by missing subjects and objects while using vulgar languages from TV drama.
This is because she has an abnormal soul and speaks an alien language. A blind-end drama is no like her.
