-In the market for an English village? The Gyeonggi Provincial government is looking to stem budget shortfalls by selling two English villages in Paju and Yangpyeong. For a cool 174 billion won for the Paju site and 70 billion won for the Yangpyeong location, you could be the proud owner –and speak whatever language you want.
-If an English village ain’t your thing, the government is still having trouble selling Woori Finance Holdings. It’s the fourth attempt to sell a 57% stake so you might well be able to low ball the asking price of $5.2 billion. Unsure if Lonestar is in the bidding, but KB and NACF are top contenders.
-Troubling news out of Georgia. A Korean-American husband and wife are being held without bail following charges of child molestation and furnishing alcohol to minors. Said minors were six Korean exchange students both male and female between the ages of 15 and 18 whose parents paid $15,000 for them to stay at the couple’s home while attending school for the year.
According to the KT, the father blames the kids and says he was just trying to make them feel like they were in the homeland.
“The students said they were under stress and wanted to drink some alcohol, so I gave them some drinks, pretending our house was part of Korea,” said Lee. “The students were the ones who came up with a game to kiss and take their clothes off.”
