It's a new world. Koreans love protests. Especially candlelight protests. Google: 2008 Korean Candlelight Protest Against American Beef. All of Korea got behind the protestors for months last summer. Of course nothing came of it. Korea is the biggest importer of American Beef, but the protests were appreciated and supported... This seems a desperate and scared attempt to keep people from following their loyalty to their instructors as the grandmaster moves on.
