Lee Yong-ho “Jeonbuk Hyundai fans unhappy with jamboree venue rental…shameful”
Lawmaker Lee Yong-ho said on Sunday that he was “ashamed and disappointed as a Jeonbuk politician” after Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors fans protested against the ‘Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree K-Pop Performance’ being held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium.
“It is said that some Jeonbuk Hyundai fans are complaining that the jamboree organizers decided to use the Jeonbuk Hyundai Football Stadium for one day for the safety of the K-POP performance on the 11th,” Lee, whose district includes Namwon, Imsil, and Sunchang, wrote on Facebook.
“In a situation where the entire nation is doing everything in its power to make the Jamboree a success, the residents of the host area are in a position to give up their ‘safe room,'” he said. “Nevertheless, I am ashamed and disappointed as a Jeonbuk politician to hear that some soccer fans have shown such a rejection.”
“Jamboree participants from all over the world are precious guests of Jeonbuk,” Lee said, “and even if we are sorry for the confusion and inconvenience caused by the lack of preparation at the beginning of the tournament, it would be our duty as Jeonbuk, the home of integrity, to help them build good experiences and memories in Korea.”
“Honestly, regardless of the reason, it is difficult to understand the departure of 80 scouts from the Jeonbuk Jamboree who should have been in charge, and the attitude and reaction of some Jeonbuk Hyundai fans is even more difficult to understand.” “As a Jeonbuk person, I am just devastated,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC posted on its official Instagram account, “The K-pop performance event and closing ceremony of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th,” and said, “Therefore, the two home games scheduled for next week will be rescheduled.”
The rescheduling of the games, which were scheduled to be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 9th and 12th, led to complaints that it was “disrespectful to the fans.
In this situation, the lawmaker’s post quickly spread around the online community and was criticized by soccer fans.먹튀검증
