On the 24th, Lee Jae-myung, the head of the Democratic Party of Korea, said, “Creating new hope for young people should also be the biggest role and responsibility of politics.”

Representative Lee said in a congratulatory speech at the launching ceremony of the Youth Future Yeonsuk held at the party representative conference room of the National Assembly headquarters in Yeouido, Seoul that morning, “Politics is basically creating new hope.” He added, “I hope that the Democratic Party’s youth future conference will play an important role in creating new hope for a new future from the youth’s point of view.”

Starting with the first launch in June 2019, the Youth Future Conference has served as a communication channel with the party’s youth policy organization. It consists of the order in which the plan is announced. In addition to Representative Lee, Rep. Jung-Min Hong, who chaired the Youth Future Forum, Vice-Chairman Park Young-hoon, Supreme Council member Gyeong-Tae Jang, Spokesperson Seong-Jun Park, Deputy Spokesperson Gwi-Ryeong Ahn, and So-Young Yang, National University Students Committee attended the launching ceremony.

Representative Lee emphasized that the Democratic Party will create new hope for the Republic of Korea by accepting the young people’s perspective well. In the past, people believed that ‘the next generation will live a better life than me’, no matter how difficult times they went through, such as war or famine. ‘ He said he was concerned. This is similar to the young generation, so they have the idea that ‘they will live a more difficult life than the older generation and their parents’ generation,’ Lee added.

Following CEO Lee’s “To the Country of Youth,” the congratulatory speech at the inauguration ceremony, which ended with the slogan “Together to the future,” from the attendees, was broadcast live on the YouTube channel, and reactions such as “Yang So-young out” poured out. This seems to be related to the fact that young politicians such as Chairman Yang strongly criticized the situation of Congressman Kim Nam-guk, who left the Democratic Party after the controversy over possession of a large amount of ‘virtual assets (coins)’.

On the 12th, chairpersons of college students of the national provincial party, including Chairman Yang, held a press conference at the Communication Hall of the National Assembly and urged the Democratic Party to innovate. The so-called ‘Democratic Party politics is dying’ was the cry of young politicians belonging to the Democratic Party who held a press conference at the time. Recently, it is also known that the strong supporters of the Democratic Party have poured out excessive slander, such as abusive language and personal attacks targeting these young politicians, causing controversy.

Chairman Yang was unexpectedly invited to a KakaoTalk group chat room where supporters gathered, and was known to hear abusive language such as “Are you a human x?” It was conveyed from Chairman Yang’s position that he would like the party to take active measures, saying that sound criticism can be fully accepted, but ‘political violence’ must not be tolerated.
