The poem, "On the train", after critically mentioning the situation in which preferential treatment for the weak is ignored, the inside of the train is "a place where the freedom of mischievous boys is still guaranteed" and describes the sexual harassment in detail, and the woman "only blushes" “I wrote that.
This is a point that is criticized for revealing a distorted perception of subway sexual harassment, which is an obvious crime.
Secretary Yoon did not answer reporters' questions, but an official from the presidential office insisted, "This is not a post that reveals Yoon's gender perception, but a poem that points out the wrong conditions inside the train."
