Protests continue as President Park's corruption scandal becomes more and more bigger. Last weekend, over 2 million people gathered to demand President Park to step down. 


As Koreans gathered in Seoul, Koreans in Canada also held their own protest in Montreal on December 3. 


Banners that read, "Step Down Park" could be seen and protestors created a shape of a boat -- Sewol Ferry -- with candles. Yellow umbrellas that also symbolizes Sewol Ferry were also present, reminding everyone of President Park's potential involvement in the tragedy. Koreans, Korean Canadians, as well as non-Korean Canadians gathered to express their support and empathy for Koreans.

Koreans who heard the news of the protest thanked the Canadian protestors, saying, "Thank you for your heart that is thinking about our country from far away," and "It's great to see people taking action."

They need to do this in Korea, not in Canada, not in any other country! This is what third world country does.I thought Korea was democratically "advanced" country and I thought they could handle their own affairs. Guess I was wrong!What a shame!

We ARE doing it in Korea ... every weekend. Do you know how large the Korean community is in Canada? Can they not show support for their land of origin?

hyukki bangeryun94 Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Here is my problem with these people: Yes Koreans are doing it very well, peacefully I might add. As we speak. President Park already has said she will quit in April and congress is working on it. So what is their problem? Do they want her to just quit? Do they think presidency is 9-5 job? Why can't you wait and let the process work? These people who are demonstrating in Canada are not supporting their compatriots in Korea. All they are doing is showing off and "disrupting" democratic political process that is happening in Korea. If they want to support them, go to Korea! You do realize that whole world is laughing at Korea, don't you?

Only after busting their sides at the US electing Orange Howdy Doody which bodes badly for more of the world than my tiny little country. Oh and thanks. It's good to know that you're a mind reader and knows exactly how every Korean in Canada is thinking. I've also read your replies to other readers when they've criticised President Park. You basically lost your mind. I guess that was when you were still in Wang_Sejung mode. Have a lovely evening

When AKP posts something related to your city and you didnt expect it at all since in happens every 100 years

queenbeelove mind_blown Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Correction, they posted about Montreal last year related to women's Korean soccer team (since the game was in Montreal). Just thought I'd mention it lmao

mind_blown queenbeelove Wednesday, December 7, 2016

"... since it happens every 100 years" means it happens so rarely that you just don't expect it. Not that they never happens. So no correction.

CDOCOOLS Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Lmfao, people now here act like they care.. when I always pointed out this bitch was corrupted, I always got flack by some users and they especially got upset when I told them why you want your idols to hang around her, they would call me jealous and a hater. Bitches be praying their idol is not associated with her. I'm side eyeing especially Yoona fans.

CDOCOOLS Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Yoona fans take that President Award and shove it up your ass and be embarrass you disagree and through a fit when I told you that bitch of a Korean President was fucking corrupted. Fucking praising and bringing down others because of that fucking president award given to your idol. Lmfao now you don't brag about it when the President is being fucking expose for her corruption.

hyukki CDOCOOLS Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Do NOT Call President of Korea bitch! Your mother was a whore and your father was her pimp. And you are the result. Your entire family is fucking corrupt! Fucking asshole!

CDOCOOLS hyukki Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Lmfao...

CDOCOOLS hyukki Tuesday, December 6, 2016

I going to give you thumbs up. You made me laugh. Lol.

bangeryun94 hyukki Wednesday, December 7, 2016

I give this advice to all the readers who want to have several accounts with different personalities ... keep a journal. That way you don't trip yourself up by calling someone's mother a whore because they think the President of Korea is a criminal and in another post claim the "world" is laughing at Korea. Or you could just abandon your 39 personalities and be yourself.

there are also Korean-Americans in the US who protested, too, you know AKP. Please read the KoreaTimes article "Overseas Koreans join protest against Park Geun-hye."
