    Cho Hyun-min, the younger daughter of late Korean Air chairman Cho Yang-ho, has been reappointed to a management position at Hanjin KAL, the carrier's holding company, despite being embroiled in an assault scandal.

    Cho stepped down in April last year after she threw a violent tantrum in a meeting with a subcontractor and was accused of chronic anger management problems.

    A Hanjin spokesman said Monday that Cho will be in charge of "social contribution and new business development" at the conglomerate.

    Prior to her resignation, Cho had ironically been in charge of corporate communication and advertising for the airline. Prosecutors dropped assault charges last October.

    Hanjin claimed that she returns in accordance with her father's wish that family members lead the company "in harmony."
