James Choi is one of the best taekwondo fighters in the nation, but that's rather a recent development. Choi, as an infant, was kidnaped by his father in South Korea. His mother got him back and, in search of a better life for him, brought him here. Choi, 27, grew up playing football in Los Angeles and remained largely ignorant of his Korean heritage. It was ironic, then, that he discovered taekwondo, the Korean martial art, five years ago.

A prosecution witness in the trial of the Hyundai Motor America controller charged with making illegal contributions to a political campaign acknowledged Thursday that he had a larger role in the campaign contribution scheme than the defendant. The prosecution concluded its case Thursday with witness Jason Song, a former cash administrator for Hundai who might have hurt rather than helped the government's case.

At Hyundai Motor America Inc., two things have been on the rise: monthly sales figures and the number of executives walking out the door. After struggling for 15 years in the United States, Hyundai has enjoyed soaring sales, thanks to an aggressive marketing campaign, sharper vehicle designs and improved product quality. But this success hasn't stopped an executive exodus from the South Korean automaker's U.S. headquarters in Fountain Valley. Since May, four top executives have quit.

It wasn't a surprise that Jay Choe won the SCPGA Junior Tour Toyota Cup Tournament of Champions last weekend. Choe, 16, of Yorba Linda, shot 70-70--140 at the PGA of Southern California Golf Club and won by three shots over Greg Wells of Glendora for his third Tour Cup victory in three events this summer. The surprising part of the victory was that it didn't involve a playoff. Or a chip-in. Or a player named Choi. His last two victories included all of the above. On Aug.
