Currently, the citizens of South Korea are demanding Park Geun Hye leave her position for her involvement in the Choi Soon Sil scandal. Lee Seung Hwan joined in the protest by putting up a giant placard on his own company building, stating, "Park Geun Hye needs to resign." 


However, the singer wrote on his Facebook, "A complaint was made and the police also came. I heard it could be illegal even if you put it on your own building. So as of now, it has been removed."


Netizens are applauding his brave move, while also portraying frustration toward the forced removal of the placard.

    That sucks. I guess freedom of speech is not really a Korean thing.

    Oh you can say anything you want just as long as it's not about her or criticism of her. She's trying to do it quietly because if she made mass arrests like her daddy she'd be dragged through the street.

    "Oh you can say anything you want just as long as it's not about her or criticism of her." with this logic, I think she should be running for North Korean president instead.

    I don't know Korea's law so could somebody explain why what he did is possibly illegal?! Makes no sense to me.

    Unauthorized protest. Basically the president has the police in her pocket.

    Korea's protesting laws make me very angry. Many people don't realize that east Asian countries who developed later still have very authoritarian powers written in their laws compared to the West. It's just that they hardly ever need to use those laws in Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.

    Just stop it already. I'm saying this for your own good. Oh and if you're going to be a PGH supporter change your username and profile pic... I'm sure that King Sejung would be crying in heaven right now because of the way Park Geun Hye's ruling Korea

    It's not the people that are against protests, it's the government trying to stop the protests. Do you not realize that there's been protests these several past days?
