[The Chosun Ilbo, December 12 2007] It Takes a Women to Be a True Gentleman, by Yang Sang-hoon

At the end of every year, political reporters are handed a questionnaire in which they are asked to answer who has shown the most gentlemanly behavior during the year. The lawmaker who gets the highest marks in the survey wins the Baekbong Gentleman Award. Baekbong was the pseudonym of La Yong-gyun, the late patriot and former house vice speaker. This year, reporters chose former Grand National Party chairwoman Park Geun-hye. It has been nine years since the award was first launched, but the credentials of its recipient have never been more convincing.
