"Can we ask Obama to come and be our president?" 

"Tell Park Geun Hye to do 1/10th of a good job as President Noh (former president)." 

"Why did adults vote like this? I could do a better job than Park Geun Hye." 

High school students who did not vote nor have the right to vote were angry, spewing out the words above. On the night of November 11, about 4,000 citizens gathered in front of a Daegu Department Store in Daegu, Korea. Many of them high school students, still wearing uniforms. They held candles and signs that read, "Park Geun Hye Out." 

"Adults are so strange. They voted for [President Park] and now they are asking her to step down. I don't understand President Park and I don't understand the adults," said Yuk Hye Bin, an 18-year-old. 

Jung Hye Bin, also 18 years old, shook her head as she said, "How can Park govern in such a manner when even her father was a president? If she's going to do a bad job, why doesn't she step down? I don't get why she is staying."

"I was here last week on November 5 for the first protest. I am a high school senior, but does studying matter when the state of our country is like this? I am going to march with my friends today. I want Park to step down quickly," 18-year-old Lee Ye Jin added. 

On this night's protest, more citizens gathered than the first one, which hosted about 3,000 people. The street was filled with people, and some people stood in the doorways of buildings but stayed until the end with candles in their hands nonetheless. They shouted, "Park Geun Hye step down! Arrest Park! Disband New Frontier Party (party that supports Park)!" Ironically, this protest location is only 150 meters (~500 ft) from where President Park was born. 

Bae Han Sung (52) shouted, "Is this a country? I am angry and furious that I couldn't stay home, so I brought my family here. If I had the power to, I want to overturn everything. That crazy woman ruined the country!" 

Ahn Eun Young, a 38-year-old mom commented, "I lived believing that everything will be okay as long as we work hard, but now I cannot describe how devastated I feel. My husband and I brought our 3-year-old son. He is too young to know anything, but when he grows older, he will learn why we are here today."

Where does the money for all those placards come from? They all have the same one.

nemomeetsrabbit Saturday, November 12, 2016

kimenri 7amdowh Sunday, November 13, 2016

He is corrupted af

VitaminWell Saturday, November 12, 2016

She's like a puppet. Why run for presidency if you can't handle it?

pink_oracle VitaminWell Saturday, November 12, 2016

If you look back at the history of it all you could, without sounding like a wild conspiracy nut, claim that Park has been groomed as a puppet for decades. The cult leader Choi Tae-min took advantage of Park when she was young and mourning the loss of her mother. He encouraged his daughter Choi Soon-sil to get close to Park in order to manipulate her. They've had their claws in her for a long time. From a psychological standpoint the relationship Park had to this father daughter team must be quite fascinating. To what degree is she brainwashed and how much of it all is her own devious conscience I wonder.

alfonzo Saturday, November 12, 2016

i don't get it why peoples hate her?? i thought she's a good leader..

IARMY93 alfonzo Saturday, November 12, 2016

No she is not she never did any good to the country, im young but even i make a better leader than her

7amdowh alfonzo Saturday, November 12, 2016

she's being controlled by cult figures wth

kpopfandom2 Friday, November 11, 2016

looks like trump isn't the only one under fire lol

douya Friday, November 11, 2016

What the president park did to set a protest like this?

ahgase88 douya Friday, November 11, 2016

lol look it up she basically used her friend who is the daughter of someone related to a cult for consultations. a tablet was found with her speeches already written and it was definitely hers because of the selfie in it. they are mad because she isnt doing her job and instead getting help from an unauthorized cult related source

crystalCassie91 ahgase88 Saturday, November 12, 2016

What she did doesn't seem so bad... People just don't know how to be grateful with what they have.. There are countries with dictatorial leaders who kill anyone who speaks out in public... And here they are Koreans making a fuss again about something so trivial... Koreans can be so smart and so dumb at the same time :/

ahgase88 crystalCassie91 Sunday, November 13, 2016

mm i agree with you on the point about dictatorial leaders but i do think they have the right to protest. She basically is acting as a puppet in the hand of a cult leader's daughter. Koreans are mad because she put up a front acting like she was innocent and for the people in reality she wasn't putting the people's needs first, she was putting her friend in charge. its not really trivial..

MsArchetype Friday, November 11, 2016

So, ben hearing about this a lot lately, what did their president do???

monkeyz899 Friday, November 11, 2016

Protests going on in Korea telling the President to step down, while we're having protests all over the U.S after Trump getting elected....Not a good year with

fliprock15 monkeyz899 Friday, November 11, 2016

It's just a bunch of sore losers and cry babies in America. Trump won fair and square.

L_catzzz fliprock15 Saturday, November 12, 2016

Well, hopefully we don't hear anything like this "Adults are so strange. They voted for [President Trump] and now they are asking him to step down. I don't understand President Trump and I don't understand the adults," later. Lol.

fliprock15 Friday, November 11, 2016

haha u can have obama and u can see how ur economy and society turns back 50 years

pink_oracle Friday, November 11, 2016

She's broken the law, she's practically committed treason, why are people asking for her to step down shouldn't she have been arrested and removed by now??

miapie pink_oracle Friday, November 11, 2016

Doesn't S.Korea still have death penalties for stuff like this?!

pink_oracle miapie Friday, November 11, 2016

I hope not, I personally do not support corporal punishment. Plus, could be dangerous to execute someone mixed up in shamanism. She might just come back from beyond for revenge.

krell pink_oracle Friday, November 11, 2016

Actually, the S.KOREA CONSTITUTION does say like that UNLESS the PRESIDENT does TREASON, then they can NOT be removed from their office. S.KOREA does NOT have say an IMPEACHMENT process (voting by other elected officials) as exists in the USA, for example. A real S.KOREA could probably explain it a bit better than me. But, my understanding is that the S.K PREZ, by *law* is MUCH MORE PROTECTED from removal of office than you see it in MOST democracies.

JMMPP miapie Friday, November 11, 2016

Presidential immunity exists everywhere. A president cannot be prosecuted while in power. Usually the same applies to his his/her direct family members

IARMY93 pink_oracle Saturday, November 12, 2016

Even rapists dont even get arrested or mayyybe a year at most do you really think she would get arrested

krell JMMPP Saturday, November 12, 2016

@JMMPP said --> "Presidential immunity exists everywhere." ... <-- *S.KOREA* Presidential Immunity is *greater* than you see it with *most* DEMOCRACY nations. In the USA, a USA President can be criminally prosecuted for involvement in criminal behavior. NOT so is my understanding with S.KOREA. With S.KOREA, if their PRESIDENT does TREASON, only THEN can they be removed from office. Doing some kind of MONEY SWINDLE, as with Ms. CHOI SOON SIL, is *NOT* TREASON. Or at least a 'STRETCH' to prove that.

pink_oracle IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

Rapists don't get arrested because it's a male dominated society and men hate the idea of punishing each other by mistake, and in their view, the woman will get over it. But Park's crimes affect the nation, so there's a great deal more motivation to bring her to justice.

IARMY93 pink_oracle Saturday, November 12, 2016

I understand what you're saying and you're definitely right but my point was is that this country is so messed up and nothing makes sense about it including this big issue with Park, no hate on the country tho but they desperately need a good leader

pink_oracle IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

They advanced too quickly is the problem. With technological progression at maximum they fell way behind culturally. It's a crying shame really.

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

@IARMY93 <-- I *doubt* that you have ever visited S.KOREA; much less lived there for awhile; me either. But it seems a BAD IDEA to make comments like "(S.KOREA) is so messed up" when you know VERY LITTLE about S.KOREA or the culture. I have some reservations about certain aspects of S.KOREA too. But, I do not regard S.KOREA as "messed up" somehow.

krell pink_oracle Saturday, November 12, 2016

@pink_oracle <-- You know, the USA got 'bamboozled' on the WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION promise that 'Little' BUSH did 'sell it' to USA citizens. This scandal with the S.K PREZ PARK, seems not that momentous to me. Other than PREZ PARK seems a bit 'ditsy' minded. S.KOREAN society is NOT going to 'melt down' over this. PREZ PARK may be forced out of office though; no problem here.

IARMY93 pink_oracle Saturday, November 12, 2016

True and that's sad

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

Lol you caught me i wont lie like Wang_Sejung and say im korean or i live there and ive never visited the country so definitely you may know more than me, but from the news i see everyday I've never seen anything positive and every article they post in allkpop about some cases i see they dont take SERIOUS cases seriously and their law seems awful and im not the only one noticing that, but if there is anything else i need to know about i would be happy to get educated

pink_oracle krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

I think it's been a good wake up call for the SK people. Until recently they thought there was some sort of invisible line of rationalism Park would never cross, now they know their government is incredibly fragile and that figures like Park and Yingluck Shinawatra are a real threat to their society. They'll scrutinize their future leaders a lot harder after this I'm sure. It's a good thing, if they can learn from it.

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

@IARMY93 <-- I am USA person; not S.KOREAN; and NEVER did even visit. I'll just say that it is a bit ANNOYING to S.KOREANS to have 'Western Culture' citizens 'trash them' with LITTLE REAL UNDERSTANDING of KOREAN culture. (Joking) S.KOREA is NOT a 'EURO' Nation; so GET OVER IT! ... ;-)

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

If you want to get 'excited' about something concerning S.KOREA. The AGE of SEXUAL CONSENT in S.KOREA is AGE 13 ... And also that for JAPAN ... ;-) ... Although, the S.KOREANS have a 'rider law' that makes it so that you must be AGE 18 *before* you can ACT in a PORNO MOVIE for MONEY.

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016 ... <-- AGE 42 S.K. MALE is INNOCENT of RAPE with AGE 15 FEMALE

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

Damn.... just damn... see thats why i said the country is messed up im just speechless i really have no words 🙁 but THANKS FOR THE INFO!

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

I hope this old piece of shit get into an accident and lose his penis he clearly doesn't deserve it

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

@IARMY93 <-- (My view) NO, it is a S.KOREAN Culture decision. You may not like it so much (Age 13 = Age of Sexual Consent). But, the S.KOREANS really do NOT care than much about your (Joking) 'Decadent Western' views! ... ;-)

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

Looool i commented on the article before even reading it so i take back what i said XP .. lol why the dislike tho xp

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

I know i was shocked when i saw its 13 i mean its my favourite number but not in this case, lol ikr by the way im not 'western' im not American or European im Arab XP

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

As further amusement on the S.KOREANS and SEX behavior. For a VERY LONG time, until quite recently (last 3 years?), S.KOREA had ADULTERY LAW that IF you got caught, you could go TO JAIL. And they were ENFORCING IT too! ... :-) ... But ONLY with SOME people and NOT with others; depending on the JUDGE that you got STUCK with them! ... ;-) ... So, the S.KOREANS did *finally* admit that this was wrong and STOPPED IT. So now, about 500 people that got sent to PRISON over this (adultery) are SUING THE S.KOREAN GOVERNMENT for MONEY COMPENSATION! ... ;-)

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

That AGE 42 MALE CEO, they were talking *9 YEARS* in prison for what he did it! NOT sure how many people were in PRISON for how long over ADULTERY in S.KOREA ... ;-)

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

Adultery is disgusting for sure but what i understood from the article is that they didn't have sexual relations and she was pregnant by someone else and he just helped her

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

No, the AGE 42 MALE CEO did impregnate the Age 15 female. It is their child together; no dispute.

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

......... silence......... 🤐🤐🤐.... whats with the world i wanna live in Mars 😭

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

The AGE 42 MALE K-pop Agency CEO did feed the Age 15 female a 'line of baloney' about making HER a K-pop IDOL *someday.* That he ended up 'BOFFING' her into pregnancy was just 'right out of the blue' somehow! ... ;-) ... But also, what he did was NOT ILLEGAL under S.KOREAN law either ... ;-)

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

http://english. chosun. com /site/data/html_dir/2014/11/25/2014112501697.html ... <-- Information (URL) related to (S.K.) Mr. Cho (Age 42) and Girl (Age 15). The concluding sentence says "The age of consent in Korea is 13, so any conviction requires proof that the minor was forced into sex."

krell IARMY93 Saturday, November 12, 2016

(Joking) The 'important' thing (cough cough) is that the S.KOREAN POLICE did STOMP G.NA (Adult K-pop Idol) for flying to LOS ANGELES for some *consensual* ESCORT SERVICE money that she earned it! ... ;-) ... Feel better now? ... ;-)

IARMY93 krell Saturday, November 12, 2016

.......🤐......., yo wanna come to Mars with me there wont be shit like this there XD btw are you a male or female im just curious and how old are you
