So is the next South Korean leader going to keep the country in the U.S. camp? Or slither back to China?

Corrupt leader taken down from office. The power is in the people.

This is EXACTLY the kind of headline I am dying to read about Trump after his wrecking-ball style administration rolls over and out the door.

Well if you're not Korean, I'm not sure how either results affects your daily life.

Ridiculous The whole is like a drama driven by a public that is ready to empty into the streets for anything. I don't think there is any country on this planet that the leaders or the ruling class don't give out favors to special interest.

The fact that everybody else allows the corruption of its political class doesn't make it acceptable ... And that's also way more than "give out favors to special interest."

According to this 'flawless' logic, elected leaders that work for the electorate mustn't be held accountable for their shady transactions!!

....whatever it is, I'm guessing the next leader won't be so quick to accept "comfort women" payoffs and all that kind of stuff. You can translate that to "anti-American" if you want...

So you are already dreaming of another deal of that stuff?! Remember nothing is unlimited, even Japan's patience and generosity.

Geopolitics affects everyone everywhere. Maybe it doesn't affect you.

Yup you're guessing, or rather hoping that the next South Korean leadership is a puppet to the CCP and Chong Daehyup. No one can tell now but there are a great many South Koreans who support ending the issue with Japan and moving on to more important issues. The placement of THAAD being an example. Or the US-SKorea-Japan joint Aegis vessel exercises. A change in leadership isn't going to change South Korean ill feelings towards China.

Nope OssanAmerica brought the issue up. It struck a nerve in him that a South Korean President who's seen as "lenient" towards Japan has been ousted and arrested. It's kind of like how it strikes your nerves every time someone criticizes Japan, even when you're not Japanese lmao. There's a term for guys like you.

Then why did you bother to ask whether South Korea will "stay in the US camp or slither back to China"? The fact is, they just ousted and arrested the leader who was pretty nice towards Japan compared to the ones in the past. You're worried and concerned and it's amusing to see. You try to hide it by talking about Korea's views towards the US and China, and conveniently try to leave Japan out of the picture as much as possible lol.

Nice towards Japan? Are you talking about the Mandarin speaking Park? You have a real short memory. I am worried and concerned if South Korea will remain in the US camp. Japan is not the issue except in your own fixated view. Please lol when you make sense.
