UPDATED: Here is the Korean newspaper page, the Hangyoreh.
Pharyngula (the Evolution blog) author Myers generally accepted the research until these few sentences caught his eye:
This might be true, but we still need to know the secret behind this disciplined organized wisdom. We realize so far that mitochondria could be the link between the body and this preserved wisdom of the soul devoted to guaranteeing life.
Mitochondria are remarkable organelles but one seldom finds research or reference to souls in biological reports (or chemistry reports or Physics reports...)
The article has also been criticized for plagiarism (BTW, check out Joe Seoul Man on the subject).
The Korean author is Han Jin of FIRST Mitochondrial Resarch Group, Inje University, Busan
The article has been removed from the journal's website.
Dr. Han has responded directly to Pharyngula but did not particularly clear things up.
