Kim Sung-tae, a lawmaker of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, delivered his daughter's application directly to KT, according to prosecutors.
According to prosecutors on July 29, the Seoul Southern District Prosecutors' Office announced when it recently indicted Kim Sung-tae and former KT Chairman Lee Seok-chae for bribery. According to the indictment, Kim handed an envelope containing his daughter's resume to Seo Yoo-yeol, former president of KT's home customer division, whom he usually knew.
"My daughter majored in physical training sports, so please find out if she can work for KT Sports Group," Kim requested. The resume was delivered to the head of KT's sports team, who hired Kim's daughter, prosecutors found.
The prosecutors also stated that the salary was raised more than that of non-regular workers at the time of the contract. Prosecutors also found out that Kim's daughter submitted an application for an open recruitment to KT in 2012, a month after the hiring process was completed.
Kim's daughter also failed an online personality test, but KT manipulated it to pass and finally passed Kim's daughter in January 2013. Prosecutors concluded that the irregular hiring of Kim's daughter was ordered by former KT Chairman Lee Seok-chae.
"Former Chairman Lee Seok-chae ordered Suh to try to allow his daughter to work full-time while Rep. Kim Sung-tae is helping our KT so hard," prosecutors said.
