Chen Li-ru, CEO of the Child Welfare League Foundation, says that currently most of the presidential candidates are in favor of the grown-ups' opinions. She hopes the government can revise the minimum voting age to 18 years old so that the voices of young adults can be heard.
Opposing parties, students and scholars have criticized the government for distorting the history of South Korea, accusing the government for being against the democracy. More than 60 thousand professors disapprove the government's actions, along with dozens of university students, labor unions and religious and social movement organizations. Many citizens and student groups have taken to the streets and were driven away by the police.
