      The Navy-officer daughter of SK Group chairman Chey Tae-won will be stationed aboard a warship protecting merchant ships against Somali pirates in the Gulf of Aden in July.

      A Navy source on Wednesday said Chey Min-jung is stationed aboard the Chungmugong Yi Sun-shin destroyer, which is setting sail for the Gulf of Aden soon.

      The Yi Sun-shin was already deployed there in 2009 and 2011.

      Chey was deployed on the Yi Sun-shin in January after being commissioned as a Navy officer. She hurt her leg in a skiing accident on holiday last month and was treated in military hospital but returned to her unit with a cast to complete her officer training.
