Jo Seub (1975-) was classified as a late popular art artist. The public's view of this period, categorized as the late 1990s and early 2000s, is very comical and the visual effects seem mischievous. The Korean variety show Do Bring Seub Back is a picture of Lee Han-yeol, who was killed in The June Struggle for Democracy. The movement was an incident in which the contradictions of the regime built up in Korean society erupted at once and for all. Seub, who is bleeding, is wearing a Red Devils T-shirt and reproduces Lee Han-yeol's hanging picture pose with interest, but he has accused the audience of the tragic reality and is asking them to judge the value of individual interests in the democratic era.
