In front of a second-hand bookstore in Jongno-gu, Seoul, where a mural slandering Kim Kun-hee, the wife of former Attorney General Yoon Seok-yeol, was posted, the mural became a mess as the controversy became controversial.
Some conservative YouTubers and citizens gathered to hold a one-man protest, and the car was parked so that the mural could not be seen and a song was played on a loudspeaker.
In the process, some even led to an assault argument.
According to the police, a total of 41 reports of 112 related to the used bookstore in Gwancheol-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul were received from 7:30 am to 10:55 pm on the 29th.
There were 15 reports of traffic inconvenience as a vehicle erected to block the mural blocked the way to the parking lot, 8 cases of noise, 6 cases of unreported rallies, and 5 cases of haengpae disturbances.
At around 4:30 pm yesterday, a report came in that a man in his 70s had assaulted a man in his 50s because he was covering a mural during a one-man protest.
At around 7:50 pm on the same day, a report was received of a woman in her 30s beating a man in her 30s, telling him not to film on YouTube.
From around 8:30 am today, YouTubers flocked to the front of the bookstore.
Conservative YouTubers, just like yesterday, took two cars with the phrase 'Julie's men' and a picture of a woman's face that looks like Kim's face, along with 'Julie's dream! The first lady's dream!' was erected in front of the mural and covered it up and held a one-man protest.
A bookstore owner and building owner, Yeo Mo, who ordered the mural production amid the controversy, said yesterday that he would delete all the pointed out phrases such as 'Julie's Dream'.
In fact, around 9:14 am, a bookstore employee came out and wrote 'Julie's Dream! The first lady's dream!' and 'Julie's Men' written on another mural were painted over and erased.
The text deletion was done in just 4 minutes.
'Julie' was mentioned as Kim's stage name in the so-called 'Yoon Seok-Yeol X-Files'.
The murals are each painted on six connected iron plates and fill the side of the building.
The first mural that read 'Julie's Men' was written '2000 Doctor Who, 2005 Chairman Cho, 2006 Public Prosecutor 2006, Yang Prosecutor, 2007 BM Representative, 2008 Announcer Kim, 2009 Prosecutor Yoon Seobang'.
Most of the YouTubers who had one-person protests in front of bookstores left when the phrase was erased.
