Korean Air heiress Cho Hyun-min will be questioned by police on Tuesday on charges of assaulting an advertising staffer during an uncontrollable tantrum. Cho (35) has told police she will show up.
Cho disgraced herself a couple of weeks ago amid allegations that she threw a bottle of water in an advertising staffer's face during one of the screaming fits to which it later emerged she is prone.
She told reporters earlier this month that she was sorry for the incident but denied throwing water over the staffer, claiming that "water splashed" after it "was thrown on the floor."
Police booked her on April 17 based on testimony from witnesses and later raided Korean Air headquarters and the ad agency the staffer worked for.
Police also seized Cho's mobile phones as well as those of staffers who were present at the meeting where the alleged assault took place.
