Korea's answer to Singapore's bmw+race horse+condo owning personality
Gambling, drinking monks raise hell in South Korea | Reuters
Wow, their poker game stakes amount to US$900,000 !
These guys are swimming in money, liquor and cigarettes.
Quote from by Janice on Saturday, May 12, 2012 report on Korea Bang.
[ On the 4th of May, the Bulgyo.com reported that eight monks spent the night gambling at cards, betting with 10,000 and 50,000 Won notes while smoking cigarettes and having alcohol and food brought as room service. This happened during their stay in a hotel suite room in Yaksu-ri Buka-myeon Jangseong District, South Jeolla Province, nearby Baegyang Temple on the 23rd of April.
The monks continued gambling until well after eight in the morning the next day. Among the monks who were gambling then were some high-profile figures, equivalent to the members of National Assembly of the Buddhist circles. They included a member of the Jogye committee, a former member of the memorial service committee and a chief monk of a temple branch. ]
Our local personality had an amazing reason: "I am a modern m......". I guess that explains the effeminate male "assistant" who bought a Sing$10,000 watch (not sure with whose money) while on tour in Bangkok. By the way Obama just endorsed same-sex marriage (probably a big election mistake).
