      Lee Myung-hee is being investigated for verbally and physically abusing workers at the construction site of the Grand Hyatt Incheon, which belongs to Korean Air subsidiary KAL Hotel Network, and during remodeling at her family residence.

      Korean Air staffers say the charges are the tip of the iceberg in a pattern of abusive behavior that apparently runs in the family.

      "Among a dozen victims we've interviewed, some were injured by Lee's violent behavior," police said.
