[한겨레21] Kim So-hee’s Politics
Even his own faults are labeled as resistance to innovation and reform

People’s Power Representative Lee Jun-seok exclaimed, “The world’s most useless worry is Lee Jun-seok’s worry,” putting himself in the position of a chaebol and a celebrity. He had captured the expression of a crying, perplexed expression. It is the difference between the Lee Jun-seok seen by himself and Lee Jun-seok seen by others. The ethics committee deals with the fact that he failed to maintain his dignity as party leader by attempting to destroy evidence. Even if the process of initiating the disciplinary process is not smooth, it does not cover the allegation of sexual harassment that has become a problem in the first place. Many said that if that had not happened, he would not have answered straight-forward questions about whether it was true, such as “I have not been contacted by the investigation agency” or “I have told you many times” and “I have already taken all legal measures”. guess Thanks to his diligence in enjoying media interviews, people are familiar with his language and attitude. While the truth and falsehood are unclear, he dismisses the attack on himself as resistance to innovation. As such an attitude becomes a belief, everything surrounding him is ‘resistance of the old-fashioned state’. His words and deeds became increasingly harsh. The greed of ‘appealers of Yun-shim’ who have nowhere to go to the struggle for power ahead of the general election is added to the situation. However, just because there is such a ‘background’ cannot be said to be the fault of Lee Jun-seok’s own mistakes. The conflict with Bae Hyun-jin, a member of the Supreme Council, is only seen as a wrestling of ‘meek’ and ‘better’ at the level of “who insulted the media?” It is unfortunate that even this interprets itself as if it were in some great current. If Lee Jun-seok is in a corner, it’s not because of the old resistance, but because of his arrogance, “Only I’m right.” His political sense and abilities are outstanding. If it is used only for oneself, not for others, the evaluation is completely different. Democratic Party lawmaker Choi Kang-wook and his advocates seem to have fallen into a similar swamp. The party ethics judge unanimously judged his remarks were sexual profanity and decided to suspend his party membership for six months, but he did not accept it. There may be complaints that punishment is excessive compared to wrongdoing, but the claim that “there is no objective evidence” is frowned upon. It wasn’t recorded, but the fact that several people heard it doesn’t change. Even if people’s ears were wrong at the same time, I had to reflect on myself. I was wondering if my usual behavior was so different that my pronunciation was slightly leaky. However, in a series of processes of finding out who the aides who had been exposed to the incident, became known, and even apologized as if they were pushed aside, they continued to say they were ‘twins’ until the end, and Rep. Choi did not look back at him at all. In the end, his supporters are driving all this into strife and political intrigue among factions within the party. Why did Choi Kang-wook become like this? I remember the brilliance of his podcast broadcasts when he criticized prosecutorial culture and monitored power with a striking sense of balance. He also enjoyed the ‘friendliness’ that claimed that he was from Jeollabuk-do compared to Jeonju, a country with a vested interest. When a radio current affairs program of a public broadcaster named after him was created and took over as the host, he supported ‘humanity’ despite his stuttering tone. However, after he finished his life at the Blue House and turned into a politician, it changed drastically. His grammar has changed drastically. The warm, humble, and most accurate ‘tone and manner’ disappeared without a hitch. At the end of every word, he clashed with the people of the opposing camp and pushed them harshly and harshly. In the end, in the midst of ‘defeating the prosecution’ (completely depriving the prosecution of investigation rights), his words and actions were ‘hate’ itself. I hope he withdraws his appeal. I don’t want him to turn upside down like this. Just because you made a mistake and missed the right time to correct it, crying is not a good thing. It is much less difficult to cover up one’s own faults as ‘killing reforms’. After all, the politicians that people support and cherish are not competent and strong people. Honest and hardworking.
