Yet another sexual harassment scandal is brewing in South Korea, this time around Kumho Asiana Group Chairman Park Sam-koo. According to posts on anonymous online community Blind, Park has made inappropriate physical contact with female employees on numerous occasions.
Park, 73, heads the country's second-largest carrier Asiana Airlines, and makes monthly visits to the headquarters of the carrier. He purportedly calls over female flight attendants in the lobby when he visits, who then "cheer, clap and hug their boss," according to posts on Blind, an anonymous chat app for local employees.
One anonymous post said Saturday that female flight attendants and airline staff of Asiana Airlines were ordered by executives to "run to Park and put their arms around him and hug him" as part of the company's greeting ceremony for Park, taking place once a month in the company's lobby early in the morning.
