      Kim Gon-hee wife of South Korea’s President Yoon Seok-yeol, poses in Cambodia, Audrey Hepburn style as a woman with compassion. This staged photo shoot, no doubt, was arranged in a fruitless attempt to reverse her unpopularity.

      Notice she isn’t wearing her jewelry for the occasion valued at tens of thousands of dollars.

      Kim is allegedly a con artist and vindictive person according to her critics. It is alleged she worked as hostess at the Volcano nightclub at the former Renaissance Ramada years ago. The Volcano was frequented by Seocho’s powerful prosecutors including Yoon Seok-yeol. Critics also allege, she changed her name, and used her relationships with prosecutors to help her mother escape conviction in various fraudulent business deals. Kim has changed her identity once, and has also been accused of plagiarism and falsifying her academic resume.  After Yoon was elected his mother in law’s conviction and attendant prison sentence in a medicare fraud type scheme worth millions was reversed on appeal.

      Allegedly, more recently, Kim and her husband have steered no bid contracts related to her husband’s unprecedented move of the presidential office (into the former Ministry of Defense Building, and the associated takeover of the former Foreign Ministry official residence), to friends and cronies. Total cost of the unnecessary move of the president’s offices out of the Blue House has been estimated by one legislator at approximately a trillion won, at a time of economic hardship in South Korea. The move also resulted in an extraordinary security burden being placed on the Yongsan-gu police, which directly led to public safety lapses and the unprecedented Itaewon (crowd crush) disaster on the Saturday night before Halloween due to inadequate police presence.

      This is just one of Kim’s prior Jacqueline Kennedy style outfits:

      Yoon was once asked how he as a public employee had managed to accumulate a net worth in excess of ten million dollars. He responded, “it’s my wife’s, not mine.”

      Responsibility for the Itaewon disaster is clearly the result of two moves by the Yoon administration. The first moving the official Presidential Office to Yongsan, and placing the National Police organization under the control of the Minister of Interior and Public Safety, removing its independence from political control, and placing it directly under the so called Yoon clique. Keep in mind that this was done by Yoon without National Assembly authorization although the National Police Command Structure was designed by statute to be an independent agency. Second, on the day of the incident, the bulk of Yongsan’s police were assigned to watch a demonstration against the administration and therefore were not assigned later to monitor much larger crowds (over 100,000) in the tight streets and alleys of the popular Itaewon district. Yet Yoon and the Minister of Interior place the blame on local officials even though there were 4 hours of prior warnings of what was happening in Yongsan and local police did ask higher authorities to dispatch more police support in a timely manner. But could the leader of an incompetent and authoritarian government be married to a saint?  Yes according to the public relations handlers at the presidential office who arranged for another Audrey Hepburn like “mise en scene” of the first lady and released it to conservative media in South Korea.

      (editing note:  in the OP there is a typo on the date of the screen shot from the 언론 알아야 바꾼다 video, it should be 11.14)
