However, the first lady Kim Keon-hee, who was in attendance ( 50 The photo was released on December 7 through Facebook by the office of the South Korean president.

She has no dignity.

She was too rude at a meeting with the president of the People’s Republic of China!

What was the reason for the criticism of Mrs. Kim (see “Related Image” for a photo)?

When President Yun took office in May 2010, Mrs. Kim was extremely popular. In December 2009, a fan site called “Gongsan” was launched. The fan site “Keon-Sarang (I love you, Keon-Sarang),” which was launched in December 2009, initially had about 30,000 members, but since Yun assumed the presidency, the number of members has increased to about 10,000. The number of members has grown to nearly 100,000. Since Yun assumed the presidency, the number of members has grown to nearly 100,000. The reason for this is Mrs. Kim’s friendly personality.

Even after she became First Lady, she was supported by the public for her folksy behavior, such as taking out meals at a downtown market. She also casually discloses her personal life on her Instagram. Her favorite white sandals on Instagram (approx. 3,500 yen) and skirts (about 3,500 yen). and a skirt (approx. 5500 yen) on her Instagram. The white sandals (approx. 3,500 yen) and skirts (approx. 5,500 yen) that appeared on her Instagram became the talk of the town and sold out at all stores. A search for “Kim Keon-hee” on a major Korean online shopping site shows Kim Jian Ki’ on a major Korean online shopping site, more than 2,500 hits were found.

Four scandals that surfaced

Recently, however, Kim’s popularity has been on the wane. One after another, scandals have come to light.

One is the manipulation of the stock price of a subsidiary of Deutsche Motors, which has sales rights in Korea. Mrs. Kim was 10 In the past 10 years Since October 2010 Since October 2010, Mrs. Kim, through an investment advisory firm, has been the owner of approximately 174,000 shares of the company’s stock. She purchased approximately 1.74 million shares of the company’s stock through an investment advisory firm since October 2010. Second, he failed to declare the amount of jewelry and other items he purchased, including accessories he wore during a visit to NATO countries in June (totaling about 1,000,000 yen). The second is the company’s failure to declare jewelry and other items. The second was the failure to declare jewelry and other assets, including accessories worn during a visit to NATO countries in June (totaling approximately 10 million yen).

The third is an allegation of plagiarism in a thesis. The Korean Association of Private University Professors and other organizations pointed out that a dissertation for which he received a doctoral degree from Kookmin University’s Graduate School of Techno-design Specialties was ‘probably plagiarized. The fourth is that he was accompanied by a private citizen when he visited foreign countries. The wife of the presidential secretary for personnel affairs accompanied the president on his NATO trip and boarded the presidential plane, despite the fact that she was a civilian.”

Adding fuel to the fire of opposition to Mrs. Kim were the photographs introduced at the beginning of this article. What was the problem?

She was responding to the Vietnamese president with her legs crossed. She was wearing slippers, not shoes. Criticisms centering on the Internet were voiced about the lack of dignity in front of a foreign dignitary.

However, the place where the meeting took place was an oriental-style room where people were not allowed to enter with shoes. He probably changed into indoor slippers. Crossing one’s legs is also never considered rude. In Europe and the United States, there is no problem for leaders to hold meetings with their legs crossed. I think that the reason for the increased criticism is not Kim’s attitude itself, but rather the recent trend of strong criticism toward her.

For better or worse, Mrs. Kim is in the spotlight. It is likely that her every move will continue to be a topic of conversation.

Mrs. Kim uploaded an image of herself wearing glasses on SNS.
