Former National Assembly Secretary General Yoo In-tae, a senior member of the Democratic Party, met with members of the People's Power Party.

The so-called "National Sympathy," a pro-Yun study group, asked Yoo to give a lecture on the topic of "Is Korean Politics OK as It Is?"

This is the first time an opposition figure has spoken here.

[Yoon Jae-ok/People's Power Leader of the National Assembly: Actually, I came to greet Senior Yoo In-tae. Although I have been here for more than 10 years, it is safe to say that I am the only politician I really admire from the heart and humanly...]

Former President Yu took the podium.

[Yoo In-tae/Former Secretary General of the National Assembly: They ask me to make my bitter voice a little harder, but the original bitter voice is bitter only when it comes to affection, but I don't have much affection for this party.]

This peculiar joke came from talking about the National Assembly in the past.

[Yoo In-tae/Former Secretary General of the National Assembly: The level of members of the National Assembly is much better than when I was in my 14th century. There are a lot of much better people coming in, and there is professionalism. At that time, some of the lawmakers... Especially back then, when I was selling proportionality for money. At the time, I did it almost publicly, some, if not all, to raise money for the campaign. Then (the congressman) even gives me an arrow to raise the sound that the aide is here for fear that he won't read the manuscript properly.]

This was especially true of the lawmakers' burst of laughter.

Yu said there is a need to change political laws that don't match reality, citing the Democratic National Convention money envelope incident.

[Yoo In-tae/Former Secretary General of the National Assembly: This time, the Democratic Party is also troubled by the money envelope incident now, but the truth is that you were caught and you must have used it at the convention, but you didn't use it... Aye, between the players. Anyway, I can't write it and hold the convention, but how do you do this? I'm glad I didn't get caught now. Anyway, I think we need to nurture that a little bit. ]

During the question-and-answer session that followed, Yoo also expressed regret for President Yoon Seok-yeol and Representative Lee Jae-myung.

[Kim Jong-hyuk/People's Power Lawmaker: Since you came from the MDP side, what will be the future of the MDP representative system in the future...]

[Yoo In-tae/Former Secretary General of the National Assembly: How do you talk about that? No, first of all, President Yoon Seok-yeol should have met Lee Jae-myung and the Amman criminal suspect. I think that's a priority. Well, if Lee Jae-myung loses, the representative goes out... I didn't want him to go out, but that's what he chooses.]

Yu pointed out that even if good people become members of the National Assembly, after four years, they will all become bitter people in the public's perception, and this phenomenon led to the tragedy of all the candidates of the major political parties winning zero terms in the last presidential election.
