Following last weekend's protest against Korean president, Park Geun Hye, who is involved in the country's worst corruption scandal, this weekend's upcoming protest is expected to gather around 2 million citizens.

The upcoming November 26 protest will begin at 6 PM KST, and the citizens will begin to march at 8PM, protest organizers report. One of the organizers said, "We expect 1.5 to 2 million people to gather...We still believe that the voice of citizens can make President Park resign." 




Ahead of the large protest, the National Farmers Association and college students will hold a candlelight vigil style protest at Gwanghwamun Square. The Korean Confederation of Trade Unions also announced that they will be going on a strike from November 30. 


748 professors from Seoul University -- the most prestigious university in Korea -- have also announced that they will be attending the November 26 protest.  Cities outside of Seoul are also expected to hold their own protests to voice their demand. 


President Park continues to refuse to step down from Presidency as the voices of citizens grow louder.

    They can impeach her, but they need two-third of the majority votes in the national assembly, which isn't easy. But it's possible now since the members of her own party are supporting for her to step down.

    I'm sort of a feminist, and I was happy she was the first female president of her country, but she has to go down.

    It is really admirable! My country went through something like this and we were able to put most of the government, including the president and vp, in jail with pacific protests! So don't give up!! Don't stop until she is in jail!

    It's not like that. More like I thought they were all isolated or something. Because I never saw them come together like his before.

    this is really hypocrite because the korean chaebols always! corrupting the politicans and the goverment or even universities. So what is different now? Some woman get informed few thing and write some speech and got (steal) money. Yes it's bad! but always happened in history and not just in South Korea. So have to send the first female president because of that?

    What does her gender have to do with the fact that she is corrupt, has broken the law, profited from her position of leadership and protected other criminals? We should give her a pass because she's female?

    i think it's a big thing being a female president in a male dominant country. There are no proofs that she is 'protecting criminals' Corruption? of course most of the politicans are corrupt! so remove them all? So ok she have to resign (probably have no other choice) but i believe she is love her country and she want the best for the citizens.
