“The Red Herring” summons Cho Kuk who is imprinted on 67 days of prosecution indictments, news articles, and videos of far-right and progressive YouTubers, from the nomination of the Minister of Justice to inauguration and resignation.

Through the puzzle of memories scattered all over the place, it deals with what happened for 67 days from August 9, 2019, when Korea nominated him as Minister of Justice to October 14, 2019, and whatwe saw when the prosecution, which lost justice, was on a brutal hunt. And the question is whether we can be confident that the old portrait of power that promotes oblivion and reverses the direction of democracy, resistance to reform, and the blade of the prosecution are not directed at us.
