Ahn Sang-soo (hangul:안상수, hanja:安商守, born February 9, 1946, in Changwon) is a South Korean politician and the former chairman of the Grand National Party.[1]


He had mistaken thermos flasks as North Korean artillery shells in a bombed-out house afflicted after the Bombardment of Yeonpyeong.[2] This has stirred controversies in the National Assembly of South Korea.
