Korea made history today as its National Assembly voted to impeach President Park Geun Hye. Citizens who participated in peaceful protests for weeks celebrated the victory with fireworks in front of the Assembly building.

After the impeachment vote result was announced, many stars took to their social media accounts to show their interest, approval, and even excitement at the result. 


Hyosung uploaded a selfie with a caption, "...234.56.7 What a great rhyme," referring to the number of votes. 234 voted for impeachment, 56 against, and 7 did not vote in the National Assembly.



2PM's Chansung tweeted right before the voting began, "I hope today won't be a shameful day in history..." After the result, he retweeted the voting result from JTBC's Twitter:





Since then, the singer has written more tweets, expressing his excitement and hope for the next year, saying, "I like my name even more today.. (his name sounds like 'for' or 'pro' in Korean)...This year was filled with events and issues, but I hope next year will be filled with good things."



Actor Ryu Joon Yeol wrote on his Instagram, "Red light means green light will be on soon. And finally it is on."  He is known to have voiced his opinions on political issues freely since he debuted.


빨간 불의 의미는 곧 파란 불이 켜진다는 것. 그리고 마침내 켜졌다는 것.

Many stars have participated in the protests along with the citizens or have expressed their thoughts on social media prior to today. Even though they are celebrities, they are also citizens of Korea who care about the country's political well-being!

    Caring about cute personalities, choreographed dancers variety shows and all that, but once something serious that affects the entire country including those in the entertainment industry happens.. y'all don't understand or don't care. This is a beyond passionate issue... any of ur "biases" knowing about this mentality would be extremely disappointed in y'all. This shit has been affecting the country for the last few years.

    This is not related to the news but if Trump gets impeached does Bernie have a chance to be president?

    I think it will be the VP who will become president next. In that case it'll be Mike Pence...? Not sure if I would want a dude like that..

    I doubt Douchebag Chump will be president now. The CIA is finding evidence the election was hack into. So, hopefully he will be out.

    TRUMP will be USA President for the next 4 years. To imagine that TRUMP will be IMPEACHED, I would put the odds at *less* than 1000 to one.

    I disagree, looking at his career and how he refused to fight against Hillary and the DNC... he's too weak... plus he is a Socialist. As for Hillary, she is beyond disgusting. Trump was not my first, second or even fifth choice, but he won and I will support him until I see any reason not to.

    Yeah I was a bit put off when he supported Hillary, but I agree with most of his plans and his views. I trust him, the people trust him, and I think that's the most important thing a president should have.

    http://www.allkpop.com/forum/conversations/ ... <-- At this CONVERSATIONS (FORUMS) URL, I did INVITE *everyone* in this THREAD to do PRIVATE MESSAGING there. You can 'chatter away' in private as long as you like. Reason that I suggest it, is that these POLITICAL discussions tend to DRAG ON FOREVER. And so CONVERSATION is a BETTER way to go in my view. Hope to see all of you there in CONVERSATION soon! ... :-)
