Japan closely watching South Korean crisis

Because they are worried that Abe might be next?

I wish that were the case Aly, as much as I wish Jpublic would express same level of outrage as SK over some of the " kubi " deserving acts of J-politician / J- Inc daimyos and carried their outrage through until those crooks resign. But unfortunately can't see that happening here...this kind of persistent outrage to hold politicians accountable for their wrongdoings just isn't part of the J public characteristics. Pitty indeed.

Ignoring the home crisis and our dear leader is always away.

Rana, "closely watching" means "ignoring"

Considering how much time they've been dedicating to it on the news as of recent, your 'ignoring' means 'closely watching'.

Strangerland, you are right. JMedia is showing it too much as expected.Do they ever show good things happening elsewhere? No. They always only show dirty and poor places overseas.

Unfortunately, that's media everywhere, not just Japan. Which is why they say 'no news is good news'.

This is the Japanese government's wet dream. They seem to be able to push any legislation through, whilst showing the Korean scandal on heavy rotation, day in day out.

As this is, at present, the only Park story on this site today, I will post this comment here. It was shown from Seoul today (Saturday) where huge crowds continued to demonstrate against Park, calling for her "immediate" ouster from the presidency. A "soon" departure can't be soon enough, they are saying.
