Starting from the Wagon Demonstration on August 29, the Umamus Me Operation Incident Incident, which is widely known to the public beyond the game community, has begun to spread to the political circles. In particular, some members of the National Assembly are showing practical movements, and attention is focused on future development.

In addition to Lee Sang-heon, Democratic Party lawmakers announced on their Facebook that they will try to maintain the system to protect the rights of game users. Representative Lee Sang-heon said that from the gamer’s point of view, Kakao Games’ mistakes are clear, but they cannot be legally responsible for game companies because they are not illegal.

However, it will work to maintain a system that can protect game users’ rights, and the lawmakers and the same party lawmaker have already submitted the bill, but the bill was delayed and appealed to be frustrated.

In addition, the Democratic Party’s lawmaker also urged the establishment of a consumer petition system that benchmarked the UK’s Super Complaint at the Fair Trade Commission on the site of the Budget Settlement Committee held at the National Assembly on the 2nd. If consumers more than a certain amount of consumers ask the competitor to investigate the specific issues, the competitive authorities must investigate or answer within a fixed period.

Former lawmakers commented on the system as more effective than the terms of civil lawsuits or terms that have high time and costs.

Some members of the lawmakers are not interested, but they are interested. On the 1st, Ha Tae-kyung, a member of the National Assembly, posted a post on the DC Inside Umamus Me Gallery, which is focused on the general team and users. Representative Ha said, I don’t know about this game, so it’s hard to grasp the content. Please explain for a quick understanding.

Last year, Ha asked the Fair Trade Commission to investigate the probability-type item problem for the five games that Nexon and Netmarble served.


Game consumer protection is emerging as an issue in politics, starting with the Umamusume crisis. The key is whether the National Assembly and the government can actually protect consumer interests on head face-to-head.
