● Mi-ae Choo ‧ Mi-ae Yun lost and gained

On December 5, last year, Congressman Cho Mi-ae was appointed as the Minister of Justice.

It has been two months since Cho Kook, former Minister of Justice, expressed his appreciation.

Concerns were raised that the team would replace the investigation team for alleged abuse of former Minister Cho Kook and the investigation team for alleged involvement in the Ulsan mayoral election.

Inside the prosecution, there was an expectation for the candidate Chu Mi-ae, who was a former lawyer.

One executive who worked for the great prosecutor at the time said, "Because I was a judge, I will obey the laws and principles. Is it possible to reform the prosecution based on communication?"

Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol made a congratulatory call to candidate Chu Mi-ae on December 6, the day after the internal administration.

● What Minister Choo Mi-ae lost = Prosecutor

Choo Mi-ae was appointed on January 2 after a month of personnel verification.

The inauguration ceremony held the next day was crowded with prosecutors' executives.

At the inauguration ceremony of former Minister Cho Kook, only Seoul High Prosecutor Kim Young-dae attended.

The proceedings were simplified considering the ongoing investigation into former Minister Cho Kook.

On the other hand, at the inauguration ceremony of Minister Choo Mi-ae, at the time, Deputy Chief of Prosecutor Gang Nam-il, Seoul Central District Prosecutor General Bae Seong-beom, Han Dong-hoon, Anti-Corruption Force Chief, and Seoul Eastern District Prosecutor's Office Nam-gwan Cho attended.

It was the investigative team and command team that faced the suspicion of living power.

President Yoon Seok-yeol made a congratulatory call on the day of the inauguration ceremony of Minister Chu Mi-ae.

Minister Choo Mi-ae must have read the prosecution's thoughts.

And at the inauguration ceremony on January 3rd, he said:

"We will not treat the prosecution as only the target of reform, but will make each and every one a sincere partner for reform to achieve the successful prosecution reform that the people desire."


It also emphasized democratic control over the prosecution.

That's right.

The prosecution is an organization that needs control.

It also promoted the reinforcement of the Criminal and Tribunal Departments and the use of female prosecutors.

The true intention may have been in greetings on January 8, five days after taking office.

At the time, a number of prosecutors who were in charge of the investigation were demoted.

The words'revengeful greetings' or'greeting massacres' came out.

The contrast of the reform of the prosecution at Chu Mi Ae-sik began to emerge.

Now that one year has passed since his inauguration, what are the opinions of the critics toward Minister Chu Mi-ae?

There are many reviewers who turned around.

The Ministry of Justice and the prosecution are explaining that the remarks of Minister Choo Mi-ae's'coming out' were decisive.

Secretary Chu controversy is publicly referred to as the SNS and Incumbent test on April 29

, "This came out haejusimyeon only answer Reform"

was one line that begins with De.

Criticism has been raised for the so-called'taking coordinates'.

The prosecutor whose coordinates were taken was Prosecutor Lee Hwan-woo, the Jeju District Prosecutor's Office.

Prosecutor Lee posted an article criticizing the direction of the prosecution reform on the prosecution's internal network (this prosecutor was also the person who claimed the arrest of former President Park Geun-hye during the Gukjeong Nongdan incident).

The prosecutor is said to have confessed his feelings around him, saying, "It is mentally difficult, but I have faith that the minister will not go to the end."

The number of comments from fellow prosecutors to encourage the prosecutor reached nearly 400 in a week.

The inauguration of Minister Choo Mi-ae, who was willing to make each and every one of them sincerely a partner for reform, and the current situation is clearly different.


the post posted on SNS on the

20th of last month,

"Shoot the Great Sword"

, the prosecution said, "I feel lost because the minister attacks the members. I am faithful to the role of a politician, not a minister."

Of course, there are prosecutors who support Minister Chu Mi-ae.

● What Minister Chu Mi-ae gained = Flower baskets

were successful in


political supporters.

On September 9th, I was waiting at the entrance of the Gwacheon Government Complex of the Ministry of Justice to cover the way to work by Minister Chu Mi-ae.


witnessed the delivery of a bouquet and flower basket with the words



love Secretary Chu Mi-ae


There were only 8 checks in about 2 hours.

When I asked the government building pass issuance staff, he explained that "the public (estimated supporters) keep sending it."

At the time, a lawyer said.

'That flower basket will be an opportunity for the misunderstanding that Minister Choo Mi-ae is doing well.'

Minister Chu Mi-ae's actions were unconventional.

He exercised his authority to command the investigation three times.

The suspect also announced his intention to review the law for compulsory disclosure of mobile phone passwords.

Criticism came out of violating the suspect's right to defend.

The Participation Solidarity, Minbyun, Hanbyun, Seoul Byeonhoe, Korean Bar Association, and the Criminal Procedure Law Society declared "anti-constitutional ideas".

The cause was the prosecution reform.

Every time the prosecution screamed for reform, the support of "We are Chumi-ae" became stronger.

Minister Choo Mi-ae's reform of the prosecutors' office is far from the reformation that he said at the beginning of his inauguration

, saying, "I will truly take each and every one of us as a partner for reform."

It is focused on expelling Yoon Seok-yeol and his aide.

It's enough to buy such a misunderstanding.

All-round surveillance is underway for President Yoon Suk-yeol and his aide.

The support floor cheers.

Minister Chu Mi-ae responds.

Recently, flower baskets sent by supporters on social media were displayed inside and outside the building, and photos were taken for authentication.

Some say that you are doing your own politics.

If Yun Seok-yeol was unable to overcome the pressure to resign and took off his clothes, how much would Minister Choo Mi-ae's presence be?

It is a paradoxical situation where Yun Suk-yeol must endure until the end.

● What President Yun Suk-yeol lost =

Over 350

organizational control


This is the number of wreaths that were placed near the Great Swords Office a month ago.

When Minister Choo Mi-ae exercised his command of the investigation, the number increased sharply (Seoul Seocho-gu Office sent an official letter requesting voluntary demolition at the end of last month, and Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol accepted it and now all have been demolished).

This is a number that can be used to gauge the support rate for Yoon.

Not many people remember the name of the prosecutor general.

But unusually, people shout out the name Seok-yeol Yoon.

How is the atmosphere inside the prosecution?

Support and concern coexist.

"In the future prosecution personnel it is entirely up to the minister will. That became very clear"

hear talk of.

Yoon is also familiar with this.

On the 22nd of last month, at the time of the Supreme Prosecutor's Office's state affairs audit, Yoon referred to himself as "the plant president without human rights."

Of course, it wasn't that General Yun had left his hand in raising opinions related to the prosecution's personnel.

Article 34, Paragraph 1 of the Prosecutors' Office Act states,'Appointment and appointment of prosecutors is made by the President at the request of the Minister of Justice.

In this case, the Minister of Justice stipulates that, after hearing the opinion of the Prosecutor General, the position of the prosecutor is requested.'

According to the law and procedure, President Yoon made an opinion, but it was not reflected.

The Ministry of Justice is virtually all-in-one.

The interior of the prosecution is split according to these personnel.

In Seocho-dong these days, the Supreme Prosecutors' Office is the opposition party, and the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office is on the other side of the street.

The current of conflict between the great sword and the central sword remains.

President Yoon Suk-yeol does not receive face-to-face reports from Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office Lee Seong-yoon.

The'opposition prosecutor's office' considers the'ruling party prosecutor's office' to be political, and the'governing party prosecutor's office' considers the'opposition prosecutor's office' as political.

Prosecutors are wary of even knowing who they are talking to.

It's been a while since they preferred messenger calls or secret messenger conversations over regular phones.

This is to avoid buying an occupational disease and useless misunderstanding.

There are many complaining about'why should I live like this?'

President Yun must have a deep understanding.

Holding a relay meeting with prosecutors at the front-line prosecutors' office is part of an effort to govern the organization.

On the 23rd (Mon) and 24th (Tue), we will have a luncheon meeting two days in a row.

It is observed that sooner or later, the Ministry of Justice will conduct high-ranking executive personnel on the basis of the reform of the prosecution system.

There is a message in the prosecution's greetings by Minister Chu Mi-ae.

Inside the prosecution, it is paying attention to whether this greeting will be executed.

● What President Yun Suk-yeol gained = Reflective profit

There is a repertoire in the story of going to the Seocho-dong dining table. These days, President Seok-Yeol Yoon's answer is a hot topic. It is said to be a key that pops up as you press it. I see it as a disproving of the interest and support for President Yoon Suk-yeol. The results of a public opinion poll that Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol ranked first in the approval rating of the next president was recently announced. There are also opinion polls that it ranked third. In the bilateral confrontation between the candidates, it came out as a close match within the margin of error.

The rise in approval ratings for President Yoon began to be evident as Justice Minister Chu Mi-ae exercised the authority to command the investigation. The'reflection profit' made by Minister Chu Mi-ae and the passport is the evaluation of various legal professionals. It wasn't because I was trying to get it. A former prosecution executive who had worked with President Yoon Suk-yeol in the past remembered, "President Yoon Seok-yeol is not a sophisticated style enough to calculate and move reflex profits." President Yoon Seok-yeol said that there is no change in the position of asking for the name to be removed from the poll. It is also thoroughly questioning the results of public opinion polls, which ranks first in the majority approval rating. The inside is unknown.

Since Park Geun-hye's regime, President Yoon Suk-yeol's steadfast endurance despite being relegated without noticing power would have also contributed to the rise in approval ratings. There are also former prosecutors who criticize such stubbornness as'self-righteousness'. If Yun thinks he is right, he goes to only one place.

The support for Yoon is now clear. It could be the holy grail with poison for'Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol'. If the prosecutor general goes up and down on political issues, the neutrality of the prosecution's investigation may be undermined or suspicious. Just looking at the recent case, it is. It is an offensive that the politicians have intentions in the investigation of the nuclear power plant of Wolseong Unit 1, which is being conducted by the Daejeon District Prosecution. The honor accumulated by President Seok-Yeol Yoon and his actions may be reinterpreted, leading to suspicion or disregard. A lawyer from the prosecutor said, "The controversial Kim Ki-chun, Hwang Gyo-an, and Ahn Dae-hee all fell like fallen leaves as they entered the political world." What remains is the choice of President Yoon Suk-yeol.
