Karaoke Drives People Karay-zy

Here’s a bizarre story coming out of South Korea, “South Korean tycoon jailed for karaoke assault”:

Prosecutors said Kim Hanwha Group chairman Kim Seung-youn and several bodyguards stormed into an upscale Seoul karaoke bar in mid-March, seeking those responsible for attacking his son earlier that month.

Kim seized several workers, shuttled them off to a remote mountain area and forced them to their knees while he beat them, they said.


Kim has since been sentenced to 18 months in jail for the crime. Kinda stiff when you consider this: “Bush Spares Libby From Prison Term.”

Who wants to duet with me on ‘Summer Nights’? Anybody? Really? Nobody? Oh. Someone git my drunk daughters up here so I can do this goddamn song.

Legal challenge launched over Nina Wang’s fortune

The AFP reports today,“The family of the late Hong Kong tycoon Nina Wang launched a legal challenge Wednesday against the feng shui master who has claimed her entire multi-billion dollar fortune.”

Later in the story, the lawyer for “the feng shui master” describes his client as “a successful property developer who practices feng shui as a hobby.”

And, let’s not forget, last week, the AFP reported “Asia’s richest woman left her wealth to her fortune-teller…”

Fortune-teller, Feng Shui-Master…which Ching Chong occupation is it, exactly?
