Elsewhere in Le Samsung Ilbo, an editorial writer is: “worried that [Park Won-soon] is mistaking himself *for a kind of* Santa Claus who extends a helping hand to the weak no matter the price.” Instead of giving money directly to company elves to dredge the canals that Boss Lee built.

* “for a kind of” … superb use of Konglish by the editorial writer.
