Korean Culture Minister Arrested in Talent Blacklist Case
South Korea’s Culture Minister Cho Yoon-sun is to be arrested in connection with the blacklisting of 9,000 artistes.
An arrest warrant, citing abuse of authority, was issued on Saturday morning local time by the Seoul Central District Court following a request from a team of special prosecutors investigating the blacklist. Cho recently acknowledged the existence of the list, but denied that she had authorized it.
The list punished political opponents of the now impeached President Park Geun-hye by denying them state funding. Cultural industry personnel on the list included filmmakers Park Chan-wook (“The Handmaiden”), Bong Joon-ho (“Snowpiercer”) and actor Song Kang-ho (“The Age of Shadows”).
The court also issued an arrest warrant for Kim Ki-choon, Park’s former chief of staff. He appeared in court Friday accused of creating the blacklist. Prosecutors argued in court on Friday that Kim and Choi needed to be detained in order to prevent them destroying evidence. »
