Goo Hara's birth mother is expected to inherit half of her estate despite being gone for 20 years.

The "Goo Hara Act" brought forth by her brother Goo Ho In that prohibits parents from inheriting their children's property if they neglect their duties as parents has virtually failed. 

The National Assembly's Legislation and Judiciary Committee held its first meeting on the 19th to review the current estate law and made the decision to "continue evaluating" but considering this is their final meeting of the 20th assembly, the bill is essentially scrapped (terminated). 

As a result, the current civil law still stands meaning Goo Hara's first choice inheritors are still her biological parents. Since her father gave up his rights to the estate to her brother, this means her mother gets the remaining half even though the petition was signed by over 100,000 people. 

Goo Hara's brother has vowed to try to get the bill passed again in the 21st National Assembly meeting. 
  1. [+5,874, -58] Let's get to work guys
  2. [+5,076, -38] But her oppa really worked hard to try and get it passed. I hope he's able to find some comfort and happiness with that at least 🙏🏻
  3. [+3,923, -33] He probably can't even close his eyes at night ever since she left like thatㅜㅜ...
  4. [+290, -0] This isn't even the first time. I've seen a lot of incidents where parents that threw away their child are able to get their insurance money after they pass away. We really need to revise our laws. 
  5. [+282, -5] How is this law practical in this day and age?? ᄍᄍ Are they serious? What are they doing?
  6. [+220, -0] How is this the law?? Why should I give my inheritance to someone just because they gave birth to me even though they didn't pay a penny for child support..sigh
  7. [+146, -3] They were able to pass Min-Sik law and Nth Room law but Goo Hara law got thrown out so quickly ^^. I guess who cares whether or not your abandon your child as long as you can eat off their moneyㅋㅋㅋ
  8. [+33, -1] Wow~but they were able to pass the Min-Sik law so quickly. This is too much.. f***
