Tales of Wonderlost

I'm a Korean-American adoptee living in Seoul, just finished my MA in Anthropology (yes, i took all of my classes in Korean TT). In my spare time, I volunteer at two great organizations: Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association (KUMFA) and the Women's Global Solidarity Action Network (WGSAN) - a group that works on various issues, including with the survivors of military sexual slavery during WWII ("Comfort Women"). I also love cooking and baking and going to the noraebang ^^ To make a monthly donation to the Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association, please click below!! (You can also make a 1-time donation)

She was basically forced to apologize after she made some….slip ups about her father’s dictatorship. Therefore I do not see her apology as valid. Here’s a link and quotes.

Park, the presidential…

thank you. to everyone who thinks anti-park people only dislike her because of who her father is. i’m not an idiot. i don’t hate her just because of who her dad is. i hate her because up until a few months ago she has stood by and defended her father’s legacy, saying it was necessary for the times and that he made the best decisions he could under the circumstances. wtf. like the op said, she only later apologized because she realized if she didn’t people would be taking her to task for that shit all the way to election day and she wanted to avoid it - not sincere reflection or remorse, simple political lip service. previously she also served as head of a scholarship foundation that was founded on money that was seized by coercion and extortion by her father’s military government. she later distanced herself politically from them when people started criticizing her for that. she was also the head of an educational foundation where women were forced to quit once they got married - it was in their CONTRACTS and now she wants to spin herself as a champion of women’s rights? fuck off. she has not helped push through a single piece of legislation that has improved the lives of women in this country in FIVE terms as a national assembly member and she has the audacity to call herself 준비된 여성 대통령. that is a spit in the face of all the women’s rights activists that i respect and admire in this country and THAT is why i’m so heated about this shit.
