On April 14, OhmynewsTV released an exclusive video of Cho Hyun Min. She is the daughter of Korean Air's chairman and the sister of Cho Hyun Ah who's infamously known for the 'nut rage' incident.
The audio was reportedly recorded during a business meeting with an advertising agency manager. Cho Hyun Min is heard violently screaming in the meeting and even verbally assaulting with curse words. Insiders claim Cho Hyun Min also threw water and shoved the advertising agency manager.
The issue went viral and Cho Hyun Min was attacked with criticism from the public. In response, she apologized, stating her actions were "foolish and reckless". She also admitted to shoving the advertising agency manager but denied throwing water.
On April 16, Korean Air stated that Cho Hyun Min did throw water but on the floor, not at anyone's face.
Her controversial behavior ultimately led to a suspension from her marketing duties at Korean Air. The issue once again brought attention to the abuse of power by elite business families.
Meanwhile, the public is continuing to criticize the Cho family for their rude, inappropriate behavior, stating, "They are an embarrassment to Korea."
