The so-called ‘Gapjil’ of Korean Air’s
Cho Hyun-min, the third daughter of the chairman, has been accused of yelling and throwing water at an advertising official, just because his answer to her question was unsatisfactory.
South Koreans are saying it is a repetition of 'Gapjil' because four years ago, Cho’s older sister Cho Hyun-ah have caused the “nut rage” incident in which she raged at how the attendant served her macadamia nuts.
As controversy spread, Cho Hyun-min wrote on her Facebook, “I apologize for my foolish behavior”.
However, even after her apology, the public sentiment is cold. Rather, people from the advertising industry are disclosing numerous episodes such as, “She yelled for several minutes, telling to ‘get lost’ and sometimes threw her car key to let an employee do valet parking”.
From Monday, Korean Air suspended her from work and the police started a proper investigation of the case.
