The chief of the main opposition Liberty Korea party, Hwang Kyo-ahn shaved his head in front of the presidential office on Monday afternoon, calling on President Moon Jae-in to sack  Justice Minister Cho Kuk. 

The opposition leader said the Moon Jae-in administration's violation of the constitution has reached an unbearable stage and that he is standing up to protest the regime as a citizen. He warned the government to stop going against the people's will and urged the justice minister to step down and face investigation by prosecutors.

Hwang followed suit after Rep. Park In-sook of the LKP had her head shaved Tuesday. Rep. Lee Un-ju, an independent lawmaker, did the same thing last week.
