Reporter Han Se-hyun will deliver.
From 10 am, the National Assembly has been holding hearings for five candidates from the Ministry of Science and ICT, the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs, the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, the Ministry of Employment and Labor, and the Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy.
Among them, the opposition party is concentrating on the verification of candidate Lim Hye-suk from the Ministry of Science and Technology.
Earlier, there were suspicions that Candidate Lim had a Democratic Party membership and that he was accompanied by his family to foreign conferences abroad.

awl is also being verified for candidate Noh Hyeong-wook of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
The opposition party insisted that the person in charge of real estate policy was raised from disguised transfer to government finance suspicion.

There are also criticisms against candidates for the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries Park Joon-young.
Candidate Park's spouse is suspected of purchasing ceramics estimated to be tens of millions of won in the UK for three years from 2015, and then bringing them into Korea and selling them without going through a separate permission procedure.
In addition, Candidate Gyung-Duk Kyung-Duk of the Minister of Employment and Labor is suspicious of receiving gifts, and candidate Seung-Wook Moon of the Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy is suspicious of preferential treatment for the Master's Officer system.
However, if a loser comes out, the public sentiment will inevitably increase, and the ruling party is expected to defend the iron wall.
