Rep. Park Jeong, Yun Jun-byeong, and Choi Ki-sang of the카지노 Democratic Party of Korea, who were criticized by public opinion for forced visits to Vietnam and Laos while recovering from flood damage, returned home early on the 25th.
Rep. Park Jeong, who was criticized for having to focus on flood damage recovery as a member of the Environment and Labor Committee of the National Assembly, met with reporters at Incheon International Airport that day and said, “(I caused controversy) for my careless behavior toward the people who are suffering from floods.”
Regarding the schedule for Vietnam and Laos, Rep. Park said, “It was prepared more than two months ago.” He said, “If people think that it is wrong in the eyes of the people, they think it is wrong.”
Rep. Yoon Jun-byeong also said in a Facebook statement, “I apologize for not being able to understand the hearts of the people who are suffering from this flood.”
Rep. Yoon said, “Nevertheless, in the eyes of the people, if a business trip for diplomacy by a member of parliament was inappropriate in a flood situation, it would be inappropriate,” he said.
Rep. Ki-sang Choi also met reporters at the airport that day and said, “I think it would be a good idea to return to Korea because the people are worried.”
