The Secretary General resigns

Just a warning to my co-worker Mona and my student Soon-young; be careful if you meet the federal representative of your city (Donghae).

From the Flying Yangban:
"Representative Choi Yeon-hee resigned from his post as secretary general of the Grand National Party after he was accused of grabbing a reporter's boobies. "

Choi serves Donghae and Samcheok cities in south-eastern Gangwon province.
He has resigned from several posts but may still be in office (what is Kuk Hoe?). I guess this is a start in accepting blame and showing contrition but his excuse is upsetting feminists:
"When confronted by her colleagues in attendance, Choi said that he "got her mixed up with the bar owner.""

You can also read about it in the Times.
