In addition, former Rep. Choi Kang-wook of the Democratic Party of Korea criticized the Yoon Suk-yeol government in a far-fetched way by using the expression "installation is a female" at a recent book concert.

Former Rep. Choi made the remarks while attending a book concert held by Rep. Min Hyung-bae of the Democratic Party of Korea with Rep. Kim Yong-min at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology on March 19 after the publication of his book "The Politics of Leaving the Party."

Former Rep. Choi and Rep. Min are from the pro-Lee Jae-myung Democratic Party's hard-line pre-election group, the "Like Society."

When Park Koo-yong, a professor of philosophy at Chonnam National University, who served as the moderator, said, "We should consider it as a prosecutor's republic now," Choi said, "It's not a republic, it's an animal kingdom."

Professor Park then compared the current Korean politics to the British writer George Orwell's "Animal Farm," which criticizes the communist regime of the former Soviet Union.

In response, Choi said, "If you look at Animal Farm, the females come out and set it up, and it's not often that they do this. Now in surpassing it," he said, taking aim at the Yoon Suk-yeol government.

He said, "I'm not saying this to demean a female, it's just calling a female a female."

Although the former lawmaker added a proviso that he "did not mean to demean a female," it was pointed out that it was inappropriate even in the Democratic Party, where he belonged.

A member of the leadership criticized in a phone call today (21st), saying, "Even if you say a word before the general election, it is not helpful to the party at all to make such a statement at a time when we should be careful."

At the book concert at the time, Rep. Kim responded to Professor Park's question about how to overcome the "dictatorship of the prosecution" by saying, "We should propose the impeachment of the president."
