President Yoon Seok-yeol’s abusive scandal of ‘these XX’ was eventually reported to foreign media.
On the 22nd, AFP published an article titled ‘South Korea’s Yoon Suk-yeol’s foul-mouthed criticism of US caught on hot mic goes viral’. exported AFP is a French telecommunications company with a tradition of 190 years.
“President Yoon made harsh remarks, referring to President Biden’s move to increase US funding for global funds that require congressional approval,” the AFP article said. He also explained, “The YouTube video containing the remarks has surpassed 2 million views within just a few hours of being posted.”
“President Yoon, who is already fighting a record low approval rating, is in trouble again after his derogatory remarks about his main ally, the United States, were caught on the microphone,” the media said. Then, President Yoon said, “If the National Assembly (the US National Assembly) doesn’t approve these XXs, what should Biden do?” The remark was translated as “How could Biden not lose damn face if these f***ers do not pass it in Congress?”
On the 22nd, AFP cited a comment from a YouTube user saying, “The president’s words and actions are the dignity of the nation,” saying “f***ers” took the top spot in the real-time trend on Korean Twitter on the 22nd.
“The controversial remarks come just days after the presidential office defended the decision to omit a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin due to ‘heavy traffic’.” In August, President Yun was also criticized for chaos in the official response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.”
On the other hand, the presidential office expressed regret for defining this controversy as a diplomatic disaster, saying that it was only a ‘private remark’ about President Yoon’s abusive scandal such as ‘these XX’. On the 22nd, a high-ranking official from the presidential office said, “I don’t know who recorded what he said, not publicly speaking on stage, but just passing by, but we need to verify the authenticity.”
