It was revealed that the daughter of Joint Chiefs of Staff candidate
Kim Myung-so was involved in school violence when she was a middle school student 11 years ago. At the same time, there were allegations that Candidate Kim traded stocks during working hours, and Candidate Kim admitted and apologized for all these allegations. The personnel hearing will be held tomorrow (15th).

Reporter Park Chan-geun interviewed.


In April 2012, six students gang-raped one of their classmates in the bathroom of a middle school in Nam-gu, Busan.

When this fact became known, a deliberation committee was held, and one of the six perpetrators volunteered on campus and the other five received a written apology to the victim.

One of the perpetrators who received a written apology turned out to be the daughter of Kim Myung-so, a candidate for chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Allegations of improper stock trading also arose.

Candidate Kim bought or sold stocks 4 times from January last year to this month, when he was working as a defense operation reform promotion officer at the Defense Reform Office under the Ministry of National Defense, all of which were traded between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. and 1:5 p.m. while on duty.

The stock trading days included January 1 and 1 last year, when North Korea launched a missile provocation, and the number of stock trades during the two days reached 46.

He should immediately withdraw the nomination and apologize to the people for the repeated failure of verification and personnel disaster.]

Candidate Kim explained that he was sorry for not being able to take a close look at his children's affairs regarding the allegations of violence at his children's schools, and that he knew that the matter was completed after the parties accepted his daughter's sincere apology.

He claimed that there was an inquiry during the personnel verification process for public officials, but he was unable to make a statement because he was not aware of it.

Regarding the allegations of stock trading while on duty, he said that he was not an operational officer at the time, but explained that he would be more faithful to his duties as a high-ranking government official.
