The South Korean Confederation of Trade Unions went on strike in 13 different locations in South Korea on Wednesday local time, according to The Straits Times, demanding that the government improve working conditions for irregular workers and raise the minimum wage. Several members were seen wearing the flashy jumpsuits and masks worn by the Netflix show’s stars.

The Seoul city administration filed a police complaint against members of South Korea’s major labor union on Thursday, alleging that they disobeyed COVID-19 restrictions. Under existing social distancing restrictions, only one-person protests are permitted in the capital and its environs.
