Unfortunate Names

It's kind of ironic that even while page after front page of the Korea Times reveals new corruption scandals, there's a new section of the paper trying to convince us of the "Changing Corporate Culture" in Korea.

The thing that amused me almost equally was the man being questioned in connection with the latest Hyundai-Kia slush fund scandal, "identified only by his family name, Kwak." My god, no wonder they're having problems, who would have a Kwak work for them? ;p

Which brings me to the poor sod below. The best comment I've seen read: "He was winning until the crowd started chanting his name."

And as a final note, I should like to pay homage to the unforgettably monikered former Korean foreign minister, Lee Bum Suk.
