Richard Marx had to subdue this Korean Air passenger, Lim Beom-Joon, who is walking around with a surgical mask to shroud his identity. Lim has now ‘lawyered up’ and claims “no memory of the incident!” In this piece, we explain why Lim may have escaped scot-free had it not been for Marx and the publicity he generated. This was the umpteenth time he went on a drunken rampage. Without the YouTube videos that went viral, it would have been an uphill battle to bring charges against him, who has been embroiled in multiple, similar incidents in the past. Why is Korean Air and Korean society keep coddling these ‘chabol brats’?
