The wife of the Korean Air chairman, whose daughter infamously threw a “nut rage” tantrum, has reported to a police station over allegations she assaulted airline employees.
Lee Myung-hee was summoned for questioning by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency on accusations of verbal abuse and assault against more than 10 people.
Speaking to reporters outside the police station, Lee said she was “truly sorry” for any harm she had caused to the victims.
Korean Air chairman Cho Yang-ho’s family have been the subject of much criticism for their public behaviour.
His daughter Hyun-ah, in 2014, threw a tantrum when she was served macadamia nuts in a bag instead of on a dish on a flight.
The Korean Air plane was forced to return to a boarding gate at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport.
She was released from jail in South Korea in May 2015 after the top court suspended her sentence over the case.
Hyun-min, her younger sister, was recently investigated over allegations of assault and business obstruction after it was reported that she threw a water cup at an employee of an advertisement agency during a meeting.
