Naneun Ggomsuda (Korean: 나는 꼼수다), also known as Naggomsu (Korean: 나꼼수) is a popular South Korean podcast under the internet newspaper, Ddanzi Ilbo.[1] Naneun Ggomsuda is famous for lampooning the South Korean president, Lee Myung-bak. The hosts of Naneun Ggomsuda humorously call Lee Myung-bak as His Excellency or Gaka (각하) in Korean as a sarcastic title.[2][3] They have also made a satire song (based on a Christian hymn, Nearer, My God, to Thee) about Lee's disputes on his Naegok-dong property purchase.[4]

In political culture[edit]

  • The third son of former president Kim Dae-jung, Kim Hong-geol, comically cited a joke from Naneun Ggomsuda in which the criminal charge against the former anchor of Naneun Ggomsuda, Chung Bong-ju, was explained as "in order to prepare for Lee Myung-bak's prison life" during the publication and charity event for Lee Seo-ryeong (이서령), the head of the Daejeon branch of the Democratic United Party, on January 7, 2012.[5][6]


The South Korean military under the Lee Myung-bak government cracks down soldiers who have "critical apps" installed in their smartphones; allegedly marking Naneun Ggomsuda as an anti-government content.[7][8]
