Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 3, 2017)
1. South Korean President Park Geun-hye is expected to have special prosecutor’s face-to-face investigation next week. Having incumbent president directly investigated by the agency is the first time since the Constitution came into force. Special prosecutors are expected to seize and confiscate Cheong Wa Dae today or within next Thursday.
The president who always likes to say, “according to the law and principle” probably won’t refuse. But I think she will refuse.
2. South Korea’s lawmaker Pyo Chang-won of the Democratic Party of Korea was given a six-month suspension in relation with displaying a nude of a satirical painting of President Park Geun-hye called “Dirty Sleep.” Pyo shared his apology via Facebook, saying, “I sincerely accept the suspension.”
This is just satirical painting. Why do they call it a nude satirical painting? I think what Democratic Party did was wrong.
