Karaoke Drives People Karay-zy

July 3rd, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

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.

Kara-not-oke

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?
