Participants discuss the pros and cons of the 65-year-old's free use of the subway and the payment method for disaster relief.
[Kim Min-gyu / 3rd year of high school: I think that it is a social and even national responsibility to guarantee the basic right of movement for the elderly.]
[Kim Yeon-ju/Former MC: Understanding (disaster relief) in a populist way means that policy support is essential. It's politically interpreted.]]
