The video of a senior conservative lawmaker who pushed his bag at an assistant without so much as a glance has gone viral, not just in South Korea but around the world. Quartz and the Big Browser blog of Le Monde have both written about it, extensively the essay “Gaejeossi Must Die” by Korea Exposé publisher Se-Woong Koo.
“A viral video of a politician and his suitcase shows what’s wrong with male entitlement in Korea” (Quartz)
“Les « gaejeossi », l’équivalent sud-coréen des vieux beaufs qui se croient tout permis” (Le Monde)
