Shin Kyuk-ho


Shin Kyuk-ho, founder of Lotte Corporation, has died aged 98. He founded Lotte in 1948 as a chewing gum manufacturer, but it had grown into becoming one of the worlds largest multinationals. He was 136th on the Forbes rich list at one point, but given a suspended jail sentence in later life for embezzling over one million dollars from his own company.

He was a unique hit for Burning Bodies in Redcar, and this means that, coupled with an earlier unique hit and Roger Scruton, this team is now in the lead in the DDP! So many congratulations to them, but now they become the team to catch for everyone else.
