South Korean police have dug up a stash of 11bn won ($10m, £6.2m), most of it buried in a garlic field, reports say.In addition to the BBC above, you can read the same story at AFP, Huffington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and the Christian Science Monitor. So to liquor store owner, massage parlor worker, party girl, and suicidal offspring of a Tiger Mother, add Internet gambling ring operator and burier of ill-gotten gains in garlic field to the list of stereotype memes of Koreans.
The money is believed to be the proceeds of an illegal internet gambling operation, for which one of two brothers is already in jail.
When he then accused a landscaper of stealing a chunk of cash, police moved in and unearthed it, they said.
Television footage has shown police pulling out two dozen containers, each brimming with cash.
Oh, and obligatory dumb joke: No, Mr Lee, that's not the way to make your money grow.
