“What is the moral level of Korea in the 21st century?
Is this society one where common sense is still valid?
A country where just because of the fact that some officials are elected candidates they think they can get away with bribery and large-scale wiretappings initiated by National Institutions.
Who are our people supposed to trust?
A weak traffic police Lee/ Soon/ Ae
