Korean president apologizes for the doctors' strike and reaffirms his determination to push forward the reform.

Yonhap News Agency said on April 1 that South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol delivered a speech to the people on April 1. He sincerely apologized to the people for the inconvenience caused to the nation by the collective strike of the medical community in opposition to the medical reform. He also reaffirmed his determination to promote medical reform, and emphasized that the government can discuss with the medical community at any time, but it needs to put forward a more reasonable plan.

Yoon Suk-yeol said that if the medical community wants to claim that the government needs to reduce the scale of recruitment, it should propose a unified plan based on scientific evidence rather than taking collective action.
South Korea will hold a parliamentary election on April 10, and the demonstration strike triggered by the medical reform may have an impact on the election.
