      Yang Myung-sook, the wife of Shinsegae chairman Koo Hak-seo, was among those killed in a landslide at Mt. Umyeon caused by torrential rain in southern Seoul on Wednesday.

      Yang was in the basement checking a malfunctioning boiler when water suddenly gushed from the valley behind the house into the basement, and she drowned, according to the Seocho fire brigade.

      Koo and Yang married after Koo joined his first company Samsung Electronics and have two sons and one daughter.
