Korean president, Park Geun Hye, has the lowest approval ratings in Korean presidential history.

Her approval rating fell to 4% and this is an all-time low in history for any President in South Korea according to Gallup Korea. Additionally, the President's disapproval rating rose to 93%, which is also near an all-time high.


Shortly after being elected, President Park's approval rating reached a high of 63% in September of 2013. Her approval rating has fluctuated since then but it dropped tremendously after the Choi Soon-Sil scandal was made public.


Earlier today, an estimated 1.9 million across the country gathered in their respective cities from Seoul to Busan to protest against President Park. In Seoul alone, an estimated 1.3 million gathered to protest for the President's resignation despite the cold weather.

she should seriously just leave, there is no point in staying since her reputation is ruined and personally ive found huge distaste for after the Sewol Ferry incident

VitaminWell Sunday, November 27, 2016

Lol is she deaf? Can't she hear her people's cry? Can't she see that she messed up big time? Can't she realize how much she wronged her own country? What type of person is this? She doesn't even have common sense. If protests are not heard she must be a wall. SK's are talking and following a wall all this time.

can you tell me all u know about all this havoc?

VitaminWell Sunday, November 27, 2016

She deserve a big slap on her face.

Man if only this was (and should be) happening to trump :/

ilovecake99 clarissaxd Sunday, November 27, 2016

americans really don't care about this kind of thing though...unfortunately

NinjaPandaChu clarissaxd Sunday, November 27, 2016

1) Because someone who isn't even in office yet is clearly as dangerous to a country as someone who's been letting a shamanistic outsider influence her decisions (and therefore influencing decisions for a country) for well on 40 years... and that's just the tip of the iceberg of all the scandal. 2) Because clearly the current protesters in the US are doing such a good job at being peaceful and getting their point across in a sane, safe manner. Koreans protesting their president and Americans protesting their president-elect, I can hardly tell the difference.

THANK YOU! Americans care a great deal, and do NOT want a Cheeto running our country. We are protesting and fighting. Just not going crazy and assaulting people like the Cheeto's supporters are.

There's recounts going on right now. You never know what will happen before January 17th. Taxpayers just paid almost 8 million for him to enjoy Thanksgiving and his wife and son are not going to be living in the White House. 5 blocks of Manhatten will be closed from now on. Hell hath no fury like a wealthy New Yorker inconvenienced

NinjaPandaChu ihavemyownkey Sunday, November 27, 2016

As far as I know, multiple accounts of Trump supporters physically assaulting people have been proven false, whereas Trump protesters have been noted as destroying shops and cars and screaming at police and vandalizing public property during protests. Yes, there are asshole Trump supporters who will go out of their way to make people uncomfortable (God only knows why, they must have eaten lead paint as children) and go on rants and whatnot, but for the most part, I'm sure most Trump voters are minding their own business. People have been saying that before the election that Trump voters just need to buck up and accept the results of the election, well, now tables have turned. Trump protestors need to buck up and accept the results of the election and stop throwing thousands-strong adult temper tantrums. Or just leave, like they've been saying they were going to. And they definitely have no room to complain if they were legally able to vote and did not.

clarissaxd bangeryun94 Monday, November 28, 2016

wait, why did taxpayers pay that much for trumps thanksgiving?

ihavemyownkey NinjaPandaChu Monday, November 28, 2016

Never thought I'd meet one of you here! Some Trump voters are minding their own business, most are not. Most are terrorizing other people. And as someone who has been to several prostests here in NYC, there have been NO violent acts. A least not at the ones I've been to! I think its funny that we're being told to 'buck up and accept racism, bigotry and a man who stands for that and more! You seriously live in a bubble if you think nothing is happening to people because of election results. Anyway... Have a good night. I plan to keep fighting so that this man won't spend one day as my President.

clarissaxd NinjaPandaChu Monday, November 28, 2016

Your acting like the people voted for trump... THEY DID NOT Hilary won the popular vote , you know the peoples vote the vote where people physically went and voted she won the election by 2 MILLION so no they have a right to protest because the people voted for their president but didnt get it. BESIDES even if those other smaller percentage that didnt vote.. voted it wouldnt of made a difference because we already made a 2m difference and if THAT couldnt make a push then why would that percentage would? ALSO how come everyone is saying to "accept him as a president and stop nagging" but when Obama won both electoral and popular vote conservative went on their own protest but apparently when they do it they should stop(fyi a lot of their banners said racist shit about him)? Trump won the electoral college u know the fuckers that they apparently represent the states. Fyi there were a variety of assaults videos and photos to prove harassment from his supporters and the other party as well so if your going to go there u better not undermine that. Having PERSONAL experience of harassment in my workforce and school being one of the very few colored people out of my colleges and my friend got touched by one at a store parking lot so i don't believe that much of not many being that way. Especially since they even hurt their own party soley for not supporting trump by yelling "gun"(ironic bc they love guns) and jumping on him and punching and pushing colored people or other republicans that dont support him. Im not saying that the other party isn't violent because they can be but for you to say all now come on. Also hes now pushing back on all his promises like everyone is surprised... bigger shocker hes not republican he just represented them there a difference. His policies are benefiting the rich *already is* and his wife would rather live in a pent house then do her job as first lady and live in the white house. Im hoping he keeps pushing back in his ideas...

thats what i was thinking like i live in chicago and a lot of the so called "violence" was an exaggeration by false media. Steven colbare evens saw and said they were leading the way, many cops were riling up more then they needed to. But wvr apparently me seeing it is invalid. I wastn apart of it but i can testify that media exaggerated the violence there was some but not something the other party hasnt dont if not in less lengths

clarissaxd Monday, November 28, 2016

the prostests in chicago im referring to

BBC news have some articles about it

michinpabo Saturday, November 26, 2016

Everything is all rigged in politics. It's not like you actually have a real choice who you want to put in office. They serve you candidates who are equally corrupt and make you choose what kind flavor of corruption you want.

Wecnbedvine Saturday, November 26, 2016

Wait, what did she exactly do?
