It was an excuse that was unfair and far from reflecting.

“Your face is covered with cake. What should I do? So I said, ‘Kiss me,’ so what I said out of anger is true. So I did it on my cheek. But it was like saying I had sexually assaulted you…

With this remark, only Secretary Yoon’s inappropriate perception of sexuality was further highlighted following the controversy over the ‘sexual harassment glorification’ poetry collection.

In the political circles, there was a series of mentions of whereabouts.

“Are you kissing when you’re angry? A person who spoke pervert-level remarks is the secretary for general affairs? How can such a secretariat function normally?”

It is said that the fact that Secretary Yoon is the closest person to the president is playing a role in this background.

Secretary Yoon, who was a prosecutor’s investigator, had a relationship with President Yoon since 1997 and worked together with the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office and the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office.

In addition, while President Yoon served as the Prosecutor General, he served as the head of the operation support division of the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office and managed the private special activity expenses of the Prosecutor General.

The general secretary is also called the so-called doorknob power, which oversees the finances of the president, such as the budget for activities and government offices.

After all, from the perspective of President Yoon, he is the most powerful aide, and it is observed that the presidential office is not easily able to talk about the whereabouts of Yoon.

However, since the secretary of general affairs is also responsible for the ‘sexual violence prevention education’ in the presidential office, it seems that the controversy over the coming-of-age ceremony over Secretary Yoon will continue.
