President Yoon and the members of both the ruling and opposition parties are actively seeking to restrict freedom of expression in Korea.

It is even more concerning that the opposition parties are also jumping on the bandwagon. Open Net urges the Yoon administration to uphold the fundamental principles of freedom of expression.
