Tablo Education Scandal Makes ‘Wired’

An in-depth report on the scandal, titled “The Stalking of Korean Hip Hop Superstar Daniel Lee,” was published on the magazine’s website on April 24, and writer Joshua Davis attempts to work the knots out of the perplexing controversy.

The article, most significantly, introduces readers to Tablo’s cousin, Seungmin Cho, and focuses on the role his tumultuous relationship with the rapper played in the witch hunt.

According to the piece, Tablo was the rebel, while Cho was the accomplished musican, and quotes Margaret Simmons, an English teacher at Seoul International School, the school both Tablo and Cho attended, who likened the cousins′ relationship to Cain and Abel, offering more insight into the deeper issues at the core of the controversy.

A look at the comments section of the article also reveals that the scandal is still a sensitive issue that continues to divide many.
