However, her shows of contrition have not been enough to appease public anger at the episode, which struck a nerve in a country that harbors deep unease at the domination of major industries by a handful of family-run business groups, known as chaebol. This has made many South Koreans particularly sensitive to what they see as arrogant or overbearing behavior by members of those families, and particularly young heirs like Ms. Cho.

It is nice to see this happening but so much is going on in the background to make it ‘less bad’.  I am quite happy to see such issues bring brought to light and being dealt with.  Korea is a country that has ‘a lot of growing up to do’ in order to really be part of the world where equality exists at all levels of society.  Or at least an attempt to do so.  The ‘old boys club’ runs nice and strong here.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
