Wife of Senior Superintendent Yoon admits to receiving free K-Pop concert tickets from Jonghun


The wife of Senior Superintendent Yoon has answered a few questions from the police.

On March 24, the Seoul Metropolitan Police announced that they received an e-mail response from the wife of the controversial personage Senior Superintendent Yoon regarding the couple's alleged ties to bribery accusations. Ms. Kim (maiden name), wife of Senior Superintendent Yoon and a higher-up Superintendent herself, admitted to the police that she "did receive K-pop concert tickets from Mr. Choi (Jonghun)" but denied playing golf with any of the celebrities. 

Her reply is a stark contrast to Jonghun's recent statement, in which he admitted to playing golf with both members of the party. According to SBS's '8 O'Clock News', where Jonghun initially delivered his statements, Superintendent Kim had lived in Malaysia with her children, during which she received K-Pop concert tickets from Jonghun held locally. Jonghun himself also admitted to giving these away tickets.

Moreover, Jonghun admitted that he had thought that "keeping a good relationship with her wouldn't hurt", since he was told that the couple had ties to the Korean Blue House. It has thus been confirmed that Senior Superintendent Yoon had been employed at the Blue House in South Korea, while his wife Superintendent Kim had been working as a resident officer in Malaysia. 

Stay tuned for more updates.

Personally, I am *not* so clear that K-pop Concert Tickets are a 'Big Deal' BRIBE here.
But I would say that it is likely a *poor* idea for her to accept them too.
At least she seems NOT lying about it -- which is the proper decision.
NOT that she likely has much *choice* in what she said it either.

Tickets don't seem like a big deal but I think this is just used to illustrate that there was a give-and-take connection between the parties. What bothers me is that the Korean police think sending an email to someone who might be involed and/or have relevant information and then patiently waiting for a reply is an "investigation". If this is their approach, then we should probably all forget about this and get on with our lifes...
