Actor Kang Don Won made a pointed comment about Korean politics and society during a recent interview. 


On December 14, the actor sat down with media outlet 'Insight' to discuss his upcoming film, 'Master.' The movie gained attention even before being released because it seems to have a lot of similarities with what is happening in Korean politics these days. 


Kang Don Won stated, "I don't think there's anybody out there who thinks Korea is a very just country. I was hoping that the viewers would relieve their stress through the movie because I felt satisfied that way, too." 


Regarding the movie having a similar plot as the Choi Soon-Sil scandal, he said, "We didn't know while filming, but I don't think Korean citizens are angry over just this scandal...It's everything they've been enduring up until now."

    Denmark, New Zealand and Switzerland are the top ranked countries for very little corruption. So them I guess.

    What's a example of a "just" country? The European countries that send the police to talk to you if you criticise mass immigration?

    Did you know that in SK if a criminal pays damages to their victims they can get a more lenient sentence? You can literally buy your innocence in effect. That would never happen in my country. We'd say what's to deter people from committing crimes if they can just buy their way out of trouble.

    Of course there's far worse situations of unjust countries than SK. But that doesn't mean he can't complain about the injustices he sees in his country.

    It's not he's right about that. I mean even the rapists get off easy over there. And that's just not right.

    The man is observing something that is blatantly obvious and sometimes it takes courage for a celebrity to open his mouth for something that is political. Don't be an idiot.

    I know but I'm just gonna say this for those who might read comments like this: Remember that as a citizen of a country, you have rights and responsibilities. Also its your country's duty to protect its citizens against threats and injustices and as someone whose personal resources and talents are being used in that country, its his right to voice his opinion that a lot of people are thinking about. He can't just go all vigilante!
