Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (January 25, 2017)
1. As Park Han-chul, the president of the Constitutional Court of Korea, resigned as of January, the impeachment condition has changed to six or more the court’s eight (instead of nine) justices rule favor of it. As a result, pundits say that Park deliberately delays the process as she is in a better position in the impeachment trial.
Having unqualified Park as the president is torturing the whole nation. Impeaching Park as soon as possible is the solution to the problem.
2. The New York Times described Choi Soon-sil as a monkey trainer in an editorial cartoon called ‘Heng the South Korean Scandal.’ As Choi plays music box which it says ‘politics,’ a monkey on a leash does some tricks while extorting money from Korean conglomerates
The money who does some tricks must be Park Geun-hye. I am sure real monkeys will be mad.
