Things got out of hand in the South Korean Parliament Tuesday when lawmakers took the debate over a bill on media reform into their own hands -- both open and closed-fisted.

One woman parliamentarian was injured in the melee, and if you if you think you've seen this before, it's because these types of throw-downs occur in South Korea's National Assembly about once a year.

After the jump, the latest political fisticuffs from SK, and other great parliamentarian brawls from around the world.

If you watch this entire confrontation between Czech ministers, you are treated to quite the "Ghostbusters" surprise.


Despite our propensity for violence and dirty politics, America has a short roster of great legislative brawls.
