Unprecedentedly, Kim Jong-un apologized to the people of North Korea for his failures. I have a theory: Pyongyang is watching the protests in the South.
I get visibly tense when I see my name in South Korean media or a local reporter contacts me. Ethics is in short supply in South Korea’s journalism business. I do not wish to be part of this game.
Watching the archival video of Park Geun-hye and Choi Tae-min, I was struck by how familiar the whole scene seemed. Such fervent religiosity is an integral part of the fabric of contemporary South Korea.
The Choi Soon-sil scandal has been more riveting than most TV dramas. And dramas will be my source of enlightenment during this trying time.
