South Korean's finance minister Hong Nam-ki is now looking for a new home as his landlords have evicted him from the property owing to his new housing policy. He is also facing more difficulty as the average deposit in the area where he lives has increased by a 3rd. The new housing policy restricts the increase of jeonse deposits at 5% and allows tenants to prolong the 2-year contract for another 2 years.
