Former President Park Geun Hye's Liberty Korea Party attempts to block 'Infinity Challenge' episode from airing

Former President Park Geun Hye's 'Liberty Korea Party' (formerly known as the 'Saennuri Party') is trying to block 'Infinity Challenge's 'People's Cabinet' special from airing.


The 'People's Cabinet's special is a special where the public themselves suggest political changes that they feel are necessary, and the members speak on behalf of the people. As 'Infinity Challenge' is well-known for being a socially aware, progressive program, many were looking forward to the special and sent various suggestions in. The preview for the April 1 episode showed five National Assembly members representing each of Korea's political parties.


However, the Liberty Korea Party took up an issue with Assemblywoman Kim Hyun Ah, whom the show chose to represent them. Spokesperson Jung Joon Gil of the Liberty Korea Party revealed they had filed an injunction against 'Infinity Challenge' and said, "It's a broadcast with improper casting, and one that turns away from rules and fairness. We did not want to make the issue of our injunction against the show public. Legal matters and political matters should be separate. It's a matter that the court should decide according to law."

The problem that the Liberty Korea Party claimed was that Assemblywoman Kim Hyun Ah has been attending official Bareun Party events. The Bareun Party is made of assemblypersons who defected from the Liberty Korea Party because they opposed former President Park Geun Hye. They felt it unfair that there were basically two assemblypersons from the Bareun Party and none from the Liberty Korea Party. 


However, 'Infinity Challenge' asserted that the focus is not on each person's party or political stance, but on the nation and its people. 


Do you think the Liberty Korea Party will succeed?

    I get that they feel like they should be represented but at this stage their party is associated with a political criminal so it's not like having an active member would do them any good.

    I think even if they succeed in blocking the show from being aired, it may backfire on them, as people will see their party as having something to hide, and they wont vote for candidates in that party maybe. so its may not be a good idea to do that.

    "Legal matters and political matters should be separate." I don't know, maybe it was a weird translation, but to me those things are irrevocably intertwined.

    Fuck them, it's a democratic country. IC can do whatever the hell they want. Even the comedy show, 'People Looking for a Laugh' on SBS has dissed the hell out of Park Geun Hye and Choi Soon Shil multiple times and no one has said anything about it. Air the episode!

    I can understand being upset with the person chosen to represent your party, but to go as far as to try to block the episode... That's just ridiculous.

    Oh lord here comes Tiny_Wang talking mad shit again. I'm surprised you haven't been fired from your job of licking toilet bowls clean at SNU yet. You should be at work instead of coming to AKP every day to flaunt how mentally retarded you are. I know this all sounded harsh but in reality i'm trying to help you out. We all know that you need that job to keep your mother fed on her favorite Kibbles & Bits.

    No Korean in their right minds would support Park Geun Hye. You probably even advocate for the release of Choi Soon Sil as well.

    So the president's party won't be getting a seat at the table? Well then yeah, I'd say they have a reason to try and block it. However, it's just a variety television show and I'd assume they don't have a legal reason to block it.

    I'm expecting this episode actually. Even though I live in Seoul, I can't say anything about the political issue because I don't perfectly understand about this, I only heard it from my Korean friends, TV or read the news. But when IC brought this up and make a real citizens of Korea speak I think it's such a good idea to see the people point of view. If the peoples thought are the important side in this episode we should hear what people said I think and we should let this episode air. I don't know why IC didn't invite LKP to attend the recording but if they really exclude LKP from this episode we should let the PD explain the reason behind. If IC make this episode in the political point of view not variety show point of view IC should follow the political rules about it also. So maybe we can hear what IC side think about it.
