I read about this in the JoongAng Ilbo last night, and was surprised this morning to see it went global:
Six leaders from South Korea’s biggest Buddhist order have quit after secret video footage showed some supposedly serene monks raising hell, playing high-stakes poker, drinking and smoking.
From The Telegraph.
Now, I can’t excuse the smoking, but the poker, well, like Go-stop, I’m sure that’s just a form of mental training. And the booze ain’t booze—no doubt it’s just gokcha, which we all know is a form of medicine.
Would love to know who placed the secret camera in the room, though.
