Lee Joon has joined the peaceful protest against President Park at Gwanghwamun.



On the 19th, he posted a set of photos onto his Instagram, writing, "Right now, there are 250,000 people at Gwanghwamun. Today's goal is 500,000. Everyone, please come", "It continues on even with the rain. Everyone, gather," and "I came because my drama is done with. The situation on site is just amazing. We must put our strengths together at times like this. ."


He'd joined the 4th weekend candlelight protest demanding that President Park step down from her position on the 19th. Many celebrities have shown their support of the movement, but he's one of the first celebrities that used to be an idol.

    glad that even if he's an idol...he's being politically active rather than being passive...

    Someone will have to sacrifice himself to drag the president Park down. Just like in the past. It is just a matter of who and when will he/she does it.

    I hope Koreans do not make the same mistake their parents made when they too protested against then President Park Jung Hee. Many people thought he was corrupt.. only to find out, after his death, what a patriotic president he truly was! It was his underlings who were corrupt, not him. He was only guilty by association and this MAY be the case with current president..I hope Koreans do NOT view president Park negatively based on hear-says but hold their judgement until the court had they say. Stop cherry-picking what you want to hear! Koreans have tendency to see and think only negativity and are very greedy when it comes to giving person credits for job well-done. Even though president Lee Myung Bak had done so much for Korea in recent years, in both domestic and world politics and economies, many Korean still today see him in negative light. I mean what the hell these people want? Perfectness? How sad for Korea and Korean democracy!  Demonstration is not the only means of democracy. Democracy also means patience!A person is innocent until found guilty!

    Just by the fact that she gave a high position to her friend, just because she wanted it, and not because she deserved it, is enough to show how corrupt Miss Park is.

    He could face the risk of being banned on the tv as a famous celebrity but he's still doing it because he feel responsible for the country, the president is only a puppet and they realize it now she should resigned as president He posted it on his instagram to encourage more people to come since they need 250 thousands more to stand in this rally. Please read more about korean president Park geunhye cases now to add your knowledge

    do you know.. how korean politics and korean entertainment work?? they don't. for celebrities to do this is immensely risky for their career as they can get blacklisted. it's the president. everyone is worried. smh.
