Amidst the current controversy involving President Park and Choi Soon-Sil, JTBC's 'Newsroom' unveiled another abuse-of-power case during its November 15 broadcast.
According to JTBC, President Park received services at Chaum, the hospital or the 'Anti-Aging Life Center' associated with Choi Soon-Sil, for free under the fake name of Gil Ra Im. President Park is reportedly a VIP patient of Chaum, having received service since 2011. An insider from Chaum states that President Park refused to use her real and demanded to be called Gil Ra Im at the hospital.
Gil Ra Im is the name of Ha Ji Won's character in hit SBS drama 'Secret Garden'. Currently, Korean citizens are responding to President Park's fake name usage with humor and satire.
Citizens in disbelief at President Park's ridiculous actions also commented, "lololol President Park is a girl too. She loves dramas", "Gil Ra Im hahahahaha She's funnier than comedians", "That lady is ridiculous on so many levels", etc.
President Park's past encounter with Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won is also regaining attention.
