    Lawmaker chung bong-ju gave us courage to fight corruption of Govt and business sector. Korean mainstream media made the citizen blind and deaf. But Lawmaker chung bong-ju kept front position to lead wild person. Then people became kown his presious mind and wothy.Korean suprme court judged him by law of election because of no more proof to prosecutor despite fact. And same rule dosent applied to ruling party leader,Park Geun-Hye. now @chotungso, citizen makes a long march to insist his innocence. Parliament prepares to make chungbongju’law. Mid of january,this year a movie named ‘broken arrow’ will be prjected on screen. the story is about to the distorted judgement on professor who exposed wrong math question on entery test of Univercity. Now many korean realized the judgement is distorted. So Chung bong-ju should be released right now and run for election cadidate on 11th of April
