In response to the 7-member meeting of broadcaster Kim Eo-jun, the Seoul Metropolitan Government judged that he violated social distancing, that bans the gathering of more than 5 people.
In connection with the meeting at a coffee shop on the 19th of last month, the Seoul Metropolitan Government determined that it was a violation of the quarantine rules for COVID-19 (a novel coronavirus infection) and was subject to fines in connection with the meeting at a coffee shop on the 19th of last month.
Mapo-gu inquired in writing to the city of Seoul on the 1st of whether or not Kim Eo-jun’s 7-member meeting violated the quarantine regulations, such as the ‘prohibition of private meetings with more than 5 people’, and received a reply that the violation was correct the next day.
However, Mapo-gu has not yet decided whether to impose a fine or the schedule. Mapo-gu said that it is seeking advice from various fields such as legal experts as well as the Seoul Metropolitan Government on whether Kim Eo-jun violated the group ban on more than five people.
After finishing the radio last month, Mapo-gu started an investigation after a scene of talking with the party while wearing a mask on his chin at a coffee shop in Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul. Initially, it was known as a five-person meeting, but as a result of a field investigation at a coffee shop in Mapo-gu the next day, it was confirmed that 7 people including Kim Eo-jun met.
TBS said, “It is not a private meeting, but we apologize for violating the quarantine regulations.”
Mapo-gu concluded that it could not impose a fine for Kim Eo-jun’s behavior of not covering his nose by wearing face mask. If the person does not comply with the guidance at the time of the on-site detection, a fine will be imposed, but in this case, it was the reason that the report was made with a photograph.
On the other hand, if the final judgment that Kim Eo-jun’s meeting is subject to the private prohibition of 5 or more people is determined, a fine of not more than 100,000 won per person will be imposed, and a fine of up to 3 million won (1.5 million won at the first detection) may be imposed on the store.
