Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (October 28, 2016)
1. College students in Busan demonstrated against South Korean President Park Geun-hye, demanding for her resignation when Ms Park visited the city after she apologized to the nation about “Choi Soon-sil Gate.” Park visited outside of Cheong Wa Dae after three days since she apologized to the nation on the 25th.
Why did the president visit Busan? Did Choi tell Park to visit the city?
2. About 70% of public opinion says President Park Geun-hye should resign or face impeachment for holding responsible for Choi Soon-sil gate. While 37.9% respondents say “The president should herself resign,” 31.1% respondents say “The National Assembly should lead the impeachment.”
Are 70% who believe the president should resign abnormal? Alternatively, are 30% who think the president should maintain her position abnormal?
