These Korean government officials like Suh are more concerned about saving face and hiding their embarrassment from the world after their botched rescue efforts in that disaster. That's why he's taking it out on the festival and its organizers. How petty.

You can add Japan to that list too, although I'm inclined to agree with Jel Merd, I don't know that any of these has ever been a bastion of democracy.
