[VIDEO NEWS] Ruling opposition Liberty Korea Party visits former President Park Chung Hee’s hometown

Sept 12,2018
1) “The government under former President Park Chung Hee achieved huge economic success following the Third Republic of South Korea.” – Kim Byung-joon, interim leader of the Liberty Korea Party

2) “However, that very economy is on a decline right now. We have to come up with a new solution.”

3) “I’ve thought of how much worse [the economy] will be in five or ten years if things don’t change soon and how it is time to have a new mindset to bring about economic development once again.”

4) Q. What do you think about accompanying President Moon Jae-in to the upcoming inter-Korean summit?

5) “It would have been better if they had let the opposition parties know about the summit before the announcement was made, rather than the other way around.”

6) “Don’t you think so?”

7) “It hardly seems natural to drag the Assembly and each political party [to the summit].” – Rep. Kim Sung-tae of the Liberty Korea Party

8) “It is impolite to have asked us to come five days before [the summit].”

9) “If Chairman Kim Jong-un of North Korea specifically expresses intention to carry out the dismantlement of nuclear weapons and denuclearization [through this summit], the Liberty Korea Party will be the first to improve relations with North Korea.”
