Sworn in as culture minister,... lawmaker from the ruling Democratic Party of Korea,... Do Jong-hwan. A former school teacher, and an active poet,... Do entered politics back in 2012... but more recently gained notoriety as the person who disclosed the blacklist of artists created under the former Park Geun-hye administration,... a factor that had led to the impeachment of the former leader. That list barred nearly 450 organizations and cultural figures deemed critical of the government from getting state support,... and eventually landed two top former officials, including the former culture minister, Cho Yoon-sun, in jail.Do Jong-hwan wound up on the list himself,... one of the reasons why in his confirmation hearing he vowed to make sure such lists are done away with.
