“Oh, the black tie… you bastard, you should’ve got it in the car!”
Yoon Seok-yeol, the presidential candidate for People’s Strength, to Lee Yong, an incumbent member of the National Assembly. YouTube video claiming to be abusive (click link)It was shared on this social media and has been controversial since the night of the 1st. This video was filmed at the 6th anniversary ceremony held at the graveyard of former President Kim Young-sam in the Seoul National Cemetery in Dongjak-gu, Seoul on November 22.
In response, supporters of Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung and officials from the previous election shared the video and criticized Candidate Yoon. Lee Kyung, deputy spokesman for the Democratic Party’s election campaign, said on his Facebook on the 1st, “Yoon Seok-yeol’s attitude towards people: insults.” On the same day, Rep. Ahn Min-seok, the special head of the Democratic Party’s election committee, also shared this video and interpreted Yun’s words, “Candidate Seok-yeol Yoon, ‘Hey, this bird X, you should have got that in the car!'”
We examined whether the allegation that Candidate Yoon swearing at an attendant in a public place was true.
[검증내용] I listened to the video at 0.5x speed…”It’s like this color” → “This is XX”
The video in question actually sounds like candidate Yoon is swearing. However, the sound of this video is not very good.
Another video of the situation at the time (click the link)is also on youtube. This video was filmed from a different direction from the ‘profanity video’, and it seems to be closer to Candidate Yoon, and the sound is clearer. However, in this video, Candidate Yoon’s remarks sound a little different.
If you set the playback speed of the video to 0.5x and check it, it will be clearer. Candidate Yoon’s remarks were not “this XX” but “this color…”. At the time, the statement sounded like this:
“Oh, the black tie… Something like this color… (then) should’ve done it in the car (or ‘should have changed’ unclear).”
‘Object of swearing’ Rep. Mok Lee Yong “You never swear? There were a lot of people”
<오마이뉴스>on the night of the 1st, contacted Rep. Lee Yong (executive director), who was the subject of Candidate Yoon’s remarks at the time, and confirmed the situation.
– The video of the situation at the time is spreading as a ‘profanity video’.
“Ha… Oh~ I’ve been working with the candidate for 5 months now (laughs). And… the candidate knows me well, and I know the candidate well. That… well, nothing special back then. All I can remember is that the tie isn’t black, so how about changing the tie to a black one, and the candidate just said, ‘Oh, what color is the tie? This? Better to change it in the car?’ I think it was something like that. So it was like, ‘Oh yes, I understand.’ Have you ever cursed?”
– The sound quality of the YouTube video is not very good, but at first glance, it sounds like ‘Hey, this is XX’.
“(Laughs) Oh, I remember that time, when I was just at YS, I got a lot of calls. Yeah, I was too busy with it, so I didn’t pick up the color of the candidate’s tie in advance. ‘Isn’t it better to change the color of the tie?’ Candidate Hani said, ‘Ah, manager Lee, there are so many people… Isn’t it better to change in the car?’ So, I was like, ‘Oh yes, I understand’ (laughs again), is that a problem now? Ugh, there were a lot of people, and how long have I and the candidate have been together?
[검증결과] The video of Yoon Seok-yeol saying “Hey, this is XX” is ‘false’
The person accused of hearing abusive language is denying it by explaining the situation at the time. If you look at another video that recorded the situation at the time, the sound is clearer, and it doesn’t sound like an insult. If you listen at a slower speed, it becomes clearer.
As a result, the YouTube video content of candidate Yoon Seok-yeol swearing in public, saying, “Hey, this is XX” to his active-duty lawmaker, the head of his execution office, will be judged as ‘false’.
Representatives of the Democratic Party’s election campaign, who shared the video, deleted related posts one by one.
The video is the original title of the video on the 2nd day after this article was published. <윤석열 "야 이 XX야" 욕설>at <윤석열 검은 넥타이 안챙긴 상황>modified to
