In recent, another scandal that shook the ruling system to its very foundation broke out, touching off strong public resentment.
Song Wan-jeong, former president of Kyongnam Business Group of south Korea, committed a suicide, leaving a note on April 9. In the note he confessed to the fact that he offered hundreds of millions of won to the eight closest associates of Park Geun-hye including Ho Tae-yol and Kim Gi-chun, former presidential chiefs of staff of Blue House, Lee Byong-gi, incumbent presidential chief of staff, and Lee Wan-gu, puppet prime minister, each as political funds on a number of occasions such as the presidential election in 2012.
Song exposed a secret of the ruling quarters’ irregularities and corruption, saying he became victim of Park, when he was under investigation by prosecution.
Song’s closest allies confessed Song said in his mortification that he did his best to make the current regime while supporting the sitting chief executive with colossal amount of money in the presidential race of 2012, however, he was under investigation by prosecution.
This case plunged south Korea into great mayhem. The Democratic Alliance for New Politics and other opposition parties and different circles brand it as a "big scandal involving all closest associates of Park Geun Hye", "the worst power-backed scandal gate in the history of the constitution" and "the worst scandal." They are demanding introduction of special investigation and impeachment of the present chief executive.
As the situation goes worse, those who got colossal amount of money denied the facts, meanwhile, the clan of ruling Saenuri Party has made desperate bid to cover up it, finding fault with the opposition party.
Lee Wan-gu, who has told a barefaced lie that he had never got a penny from Song, tendered his resignation to Park Geun-hye on Apr. 20.
The Park Geun Hye group has cried out for "building a clean public society" but it is the kingpin of irregularities and corruption and a group of wicked criminals.
The chief executive of south Korea is the main culprit and mastermind of the case and Park Geun Hye can never evade the responsibility for it.
The people from all walks of life in south Korea have urged the south Korean authorities to probe the truth behind the Song Wan Jong case and sternly punish the present conservative group.
