On May 15, a petition demanding the removal of a judge appeared on the government website. The petition pointed out this judge has angered citizens by continuously dismissing arrest warrants for a CEO, Chinese drug distributor, sexual harasser, and more, and stated, "We are curious rather or not this judge is corrupt. We want a judge with a live heart and soul that makes reasonable decisions."
No specific names are mentioned, however, based on the description, the petition seemed to be targeting Shin Jong Yeol, the judge that dismissed the arrest warrants for Seungri and Yuri Holdings CEO Yoo In Suk, Chinese drug distributor 'Anna,' and other controversial figures involved in the Burning Sun scandal.
Meanwhile, netizens are expressing anger, commenting, "That judge needs to leave," "Do we have to go on a national candle rally again? This is nonsense," "Seungri can't be arrested because they're all on the same boat," "Seungri must have more money than Park Geun Hye," "This is crazy. How much did they pay the judge?"
