response to President Moon Jae-in's request for an apology, candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, the People's Power, replied that the word political retaliation did not exist in his dictionary.

The Democratic Party launched a general offensive, claiming that candidate Yoon had publicly declared 'political retaliation'.

Next is reporter Lee Hyun-young.


People's Strength Candidate Yoon Seok-yeol made a statement regarding the public apology, citing President Moon Jae-in's words as evidence.

[Yoon Seok-yeol/People's Power Presidential Candidate: (President Moon Jae-in) has always emphasized the absence of sanctuary.

You could say that (as I) have the same thoughts.

There is no such word as political retaliation in Yun Seok-yeol's dictionary.]

When he becomes president, he said he would not be involved in the situation and investigation, and his remarks yesterday (9th) were not 'prediction of political retaliation', but rather a principle of corruption and corruption in power. I emphasized that it was a statement.

At the party level, we have made a clear stance on a head-to-head response.

President Lee Jun-seok said, "It is an obvious attempt to interfere in the election," and "selective anger that only speaks to the opposition party without saying a word to China."

[Lee Jun-seok / Representative of People's Power: The Blue House will have to stop all interference in politics until the presidential election in the future so as not to cause misunderstandings and not to hear the voice of election meddling, I think.]

On the other hand, the Democratic Party, including candidate Lee Jae-myung, The entire party attacked Yun on the whole day.

[Lee Jae-myung / Democratic Party Presidential Candidate: I have never seen a candidate actually profess political retaliation.

I sincerely recommend that you go down the path of unity, not retaliation.]

Condemnation continued at the general assembly of members of the House of Representatives.

[Song Yeong-gil / Democratic Party Representative: We cannot help but be amazed that we publicly showed our intention of political retaliation against the Moon Jae-in government, who brought us without a gate incident.]

Representatives from the Blue House and former and current ministers of the current government also issued statements one after another. They denounced it as a disgraceful remark that promised political revenge against President Moon.
