Is this the same network that has been accused a few times of showing low-key support for Ilbe?

The ILBE.COM website folk are rather STRANGE. BUT , they also DO get to SPEAK their 'strange' views.
It is surely better than N.KOREA say (what nation is not on free speech issue) ... The other aspect , is that a LOT of S.KOREA LAWS are 'left over' from when JAPAN did occupy KOREA (Years 1910-1945). And so , when S.KOREA got created as a nation , they did like *retain* the JAPAN LAWS (the DEVIL that people KNEW it). And then you had the S.K MILITARY DICTATOR too (PARK CHUNG HEE) for a long time there in S.KOREA. So , you have all this idea of NOT saying ANYTHING to OFFEND anyone ever. I suspect that a S.K Citizen would know what I am trying to 'get at it' here ...

(Trolling) ... It is WHY that you have BTS Group Fans (ARMY) 'running around' on websites trying to stifle everyone who might have the 'audacity' to suggest that BTS Group should *never* address the UNITED NATIONS again! 😃
