Trial opens for ousted Park over corruption charges
 As a judge announced the opening of a trial hearing, former President Park Geun-hye stepped inside a courtroom in handcuffs and a navy suit with her prison number 503 attached to her jacket. Amid a barrage of camera flashes and with some 150 spectators looking on, Park entered the same courtroom where two of South Korea’s former presidents had also stood trial.

 It was her first public appearance since she was taken into custody on March 31 over corruption charges that ended her presidency.

 This year’s Cannes Film Festival has been a sprawling, international referendum on Netflix, with votes registered in catcalls and applause, and some of the biggest names in cinema staking out their positions.

* covet: 탐내다, 갈망하다 (=long for~/crave) * competition for ~: ~를 얻기 위한 경쟁
