Chairman Chung said, “The association has had a difficult time over the past month.”

In March, the association decided to pardon 100 participants in various misconduct, including match-fixing, but immediately withdrew it after failing to overcome public criticism from society. In the process, the vice-chairman and the board of directors took responsibility and resigned.

Chairman Chung explained, “I was worried about whether I should step down, too. When asked if he thought this term would be his last, Chairman Chung replied, “I haven’t thought about it yet.”
