The spokesperson for the floor said, “I’m talking about fairness in the future, but in the future, they made an unfair and illegal solicitation for employment.”
Lee Won-wook, a member of the Democratic Party of Korea, also wrote on his SNS, “There was a press report that Kim Eun-hye was trying to hire an acquaintance Kim to KT while she was KT’s managing director.”
