How will that affect him? Will that positional guidance change over time? Kim compares the Korean justice system with that of the USA.
He says that being loved by "24 million eternally dedicated fans" is "intimidating, suffocating even". Suffering from more chest pains, Kim hopes that a public execution might ease his pain. The crime?
