We hear that a press conference has been called in Seoul this afternoon to clarify the future leadership of the philharmonc orchestra.

Its is expected that the resignation of Park Hyun-jung, the bullying chief executive, will be announced. But that is not the end of the story.

Park, who is connected to a powerful political family, has accused the music diirector Myun Whun Chung, of organising a putsch against her. To lose a prominent post in these cirumstances is considered shaming in Korean culture. Park is said to be considering legal action.
