South Korea's Culture Minister Cho Yoon-Sun (C) arrives to be questioned at the office of the independent counsel on a corruption scandal case that led to the impeachment of President Park Geun-Hye in Seoul on January 17, 2017South Korea's culture minister resigned after being arrested Saturday for allegedly creating a "blacklist" of nearly 10,000 artists who voiced criticism of impeached President Park Geun-Hye. Cho Yoon-Sun, who is the first minister in active service to be arrested in South Korea, is accused of creating the vast catalogue to starve the artists of government subsidies and private investments and place them under state surveillance. The list's existence has sparked widespread anger, raising the spectre of Seoul's 1960-80s army-backed rule -- including under dictator Park Chung-Hee, the impeached leader's late father -- when the news, arts and entertainment were heavily censored.
