I strongly suspect the South Korean courts would not have any part of such obvious political retribution against a free press. And is it just me or does she look vaguely like Michael Jackson?

Hard to believe that anyone would even listen to her she need to get a reality check, BCZ. she may end up being the one investigated.

Could it be that she's inflicted with "nuts rage"?

Yes, yes she does.

The party had lodged multiple injunctions in a bid to keep the recordings out of the public domain, but all were rejected by the courts.

noice.

If she looks a bit like Jacko, it’s because she’s what Jacko was trying to look like rather than the other way round. The real point is, she sounds like Kim Jong-un’s sister.

Have you read any of her Presidential candidate husband's positions? He's a lulu too. He advocates a 120 hour work week ( ! ), promises to eliminate the minimum wage and current 52 hour work week if elected. He stated there was no radiation leak from the Fukushima reactors because "the reactors themselves didn't collapse". He also says if elected he will demand the US station tactical nuclear weapons in South Korea, something the US has rejected outright.

MJ had a skin disease. Maybe don't call out people with medical disorders for odd appearance?

She may have been joking. Or not. The tone of her statements is hard to judge. If it is currently illegal in SK and someone breaks a law, is it truly criminal or a civil law broken for libel? Civil laws don't get jail time.

What gives her the right to be so authoritarian and mouthy like that? Has the past of SK dictatorships and Donald Trump rubbed off on her? Now SK has a choice and her husband appears to be a NO for their nation's government.

As Prosecutor General her husband supposedly filed charges against political opponents right before elections as a way to turn voters against them. He is accused of vote rigging in the Ulsan mayors election and interfering in investigations of close associates and family members. Two peas in a pod.

I was referring to how he changed his face through multiple plastic surgeries. His nose kept getting smaller and he added a cleft to his chin, redid his eyelids among other things. He had so many nose jobs it started to cave in and had to be rebuilt with fillers. And then there was the lipstick. He ended up looking vaguely like the lovely (sarcasm) Ms. Kim seen above.

Desert Tortoise:

Now that I’ve read your posts re Ms Kim’s husband, I’m not sure that South Korean democracy can be described as “robust” as it is in the article. Unless the writer is using the word in its steroid-pumping, roid-raging, chest-thumping sense.

And I agree, MJ looked like a walking nightmare in his final years.
