Kim Jedong to sue netizens who have attacked him for being politically vocal


Background: Kim Jedong has always been very politically vocal and has spread awareness for social issues countless times (e.g. joining demonstrations for university tuition fee cuts and reducing carbon dioxide emissions, urging people to vote, investing in political films, speaking out about cyberbullying, donating to charity, etc.)  

Because of this, there were speculations that there was political motivation behind him being fired and removed from his shows.  They speculated that he has been blacklisted by the government and, in 2012, it was revealed that the National Intelligence Service (NIS) has been keeping Kim Jedong under illegal surveillance which caused him a lot of fear and anxiety.  He has also received a lot of hateful comments for being an outspoken liberal. 

He actively attended the candlelight rallies against Park Geun Hye
