Bank of Korea governor urged to quit

Lawmakers this week called for Bank of Korea governor Park Seung to take "full responsibility" and resign following recent comments he made.

"The improper remarks by the central bank governor cost the nation an enormous amount of money to keep the won's value stable in global currency markets and damaged (the authorities') credibility in the market," Rep. Lee Kye-ahn of the ruling Uri Party said in a written statement he submitted to the National Assembly committee on finance and economy.
