free speech continues to die in South Korea

The Marmot takes note of what happens when you post parodies of politicians. Robert quotes some text, which reads in part:

A Seoul court on Thursday fined a college student 1.5 million won for producing and spreading parodies through the Internet that aimed to defame certain candidates ahead of the April 15 general elections.

It is the first time in South Korea that a citizen has been punished for producing parody works on the Internet.

So I guess it's time for me to repost my parody of a Korean politician:

I'm going to start hiding secret messages in these little dialog boxes.
