He is a criminal profiler who went into politics. He was elected to the National Assembly last year.

When you realize that the ultimate kdrama is the Korean government itself.

freedom of expression DOES NOT MEAN YOU WOULD NOT BE ACCOUNTED FOR YOUR ACTIONS .

they should deport him into N.korea then he will know that he fucked up .

DZico Thursday, February 2, 2017

even if you don't agree to the president of your country , if you insult him/her in this way then you are insulting the country president , and you should be treated as traitor of the country and get jailed not just suspended .

BigBlueagain DZico Thursday, February 2, 2017

That's not freedom of speech/expression. That's just the opposite, It's oppression and you sound like you already live in N.Korea with this crap.

Six months suspension for scoring points with the public. Worth It.
