While the book held in the air instructs its reader in the culture of Korean ink drawings and pictorial traditions the red sign calls upon President Park Geun-Hye to resign immediately.
Behind the police buses is the Blue House, the residence of the President. In winter 2016 several million people demonstrated in front of this house for the dismissal of the government under President Park Geun-Hye. The photos were taken at night on December 10th towards the end of the day of protest. A court confirmed the impeachment on March 10th 2017 and removed Park Geun-Hye from office.
