Candidate Suk-Yeol Yoon’s Facebook post on ‘Abolition of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family’ was confronted by Candidate Sang-Jeong Shim posting the phrase ‘Strengthen the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family’.

On the 7th, Justice Party presidential candidate Shim Sang-jung countered with a Facebook post by Yoon Seok-yeol, a presidential candidate for People’s Strength, saying that the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family was abolished. On this day, candidate Yoon took out a card to abolish the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, aiming at the votes for ‘Lee Dae-nam (a man in his 20s)’. It was posted on Facebook with the words “Abolition of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family” written on the sky blue desktop without any explanation.

Four and a half hours after this article was posted, Candidate Shim posted the phrase “Strengthening the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family”. The wallpaper was chosen in purple, which symbolizes gender equality. Like candidate Yoon, there was no extra explanation. It seems to have attacked the votes of ‘Lee Dae-nyeo (a woman in her 20s)’ by parodying the form of Candidate Yoon.

Kang Min-jin, the leader of the Youth Justice Party, aimed at Candidate Yoon on Facebook and said, “Are you writing the answers to the practice questions presented by Lee Jun-seok? Or are you writing a reflection letter towards the male excess community? It’s really boring for a presidential candidate,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, in October of last year, Candidate Yoon expressed his intention to reorganize the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family into the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, saying, “Even if the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family is abolished, where will the work be given” regarding the existence of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family. However, there is an interpretation that he recently changed his attitude to keep pace with Lee Jun-seok, the representative of the People’s Power, after he closed the conflict.
