Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (January 31, 2017)
1. The Constitutional Court of Korea that took a break during lunar New Year’s Day began impeachment trial in earnest to complete the trial on President Park Geun-hye before March 13. The president, court, and special prosecutors are expected to have a fierce legal battle as well as investigation and legal defense.
Even the funniest movie can become a boring drag. Let’s finish trial as soon as possible.
2. Chief editor Jung Kyu-jae unveiled the story after he had an interview with President Park Geun-hye. Jung asked whether Park would correct the excessive power of press and mistakes if the impeachment is overturned. The president said that the mistakes would be corrected with the power of people.
From my understanding of the story, she threatens revenge if the impeachment is overturned.
