Kwon Chil-seung, former captain of the Cheonan, “killed all his men”… and “should be severely disciplined”
The People’s Power has demanded an apology from Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung and chief spokesperson Kwon Chil-seung regarding the honorary chairman of the Other Hundred Years Foundation, Kyung Kyung, who stepped down from his position as chairman of the Democratic Party’s innovation committee.
In particular, they argued that Kwon should be severely disciplined for his verbal controversy with former Cheonan ship captain Choi Won-il.
“Many people are outraged by the anti-constitutional behavior of the Democratic Party leadership, from Lee Jae-myung, who appointed a person who publicly claimed that ‘the Cheonan was self-destructed’ as the head of the Democratic Party’s innovation committee, to Kwon Chil-seung, who publicly insulted the country’s war heroes with his last-minute comments,” Kim Ki-hyun, president of the People’s Power, said on Facebook today (June 6).

Earlier in the day, Choi had demanded an apology from the Democratic Party following a controversial “Cheonan self-destruction theory” posted on his social media account토토사이트.
Chief spokesperson Kwon said, “What kind of stranger did the captain of the Cheonan say such a thing?” “It’s ridiculous that he killed all his subordinates. The captain shouldn’t have gotten off the ship in the first place,” sparking controversy.
Kim called for severe disciplinary action against Kwon, saying, “Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung should politely apologize in front of the people for his insulting words to the Cheonan soldiers.”
“Chief spokesman Kwon Chil-seung drove a stake through the hearts of the Cheonan sailors and their families, as well as the people,” said a spokesman for the ruling Grand National Party of Korea in a commentary, adding, “He should sincerely apologize and resign from his position as chief spokesman.”
