  • “In a country where only 6% of the top 100 companies have female executives, Min’s anger resonates with young Korean women who are inspired by criticism of their male bosses” – This part is especially good
  • Min Hee-jin has never been a feminist, but she just demanded rational thinking, and the fact that she has become a symbol seems to speak for the current state of Korean society.
  • I support Min Hee Jin!
