At the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit, which was held in Spain until July 5, South Korea’s Yun Suk-yeol (61) Kim Keon-hee (49), wife of the president, showed off a variety of fashions for the event. She gave a glamorous impression to the heads of state and the press.

The summit was her diplomatic debut,” said Kim. I think she wanted to show her presence by taking care of her attire. At first, she seemed nervous, but she interacted with the ladies of the other countries without any problems. She was even seen speaking English, which is her forte, in a friendly manner,” said a reporter from the international section of a national newspaper.

Although Mrs. Kim made a successful diplomatic debut, she has been criticized by some. Her attire during the summit meeting is causing controversy.

Her fan club has 100,000 members.

The popularity of the talented and colorful Mrs. Kim is growing by the day. Last December, the fan site “Keon-Sarang (I love you, Keon-Sarang)” was launched. The number of members was initially around 30,000, but has now grown to nearly 100,000.

The biggest reason for its popularity is its unpretentious, folksy character. Even after becoming first lady, she still takes out her meals at a downtown mass market. She also casually shares her personal life on her Instagram. Her favorite white sandals (about 3,500 yen) on her Instagram became a hot topic and sold out at various stores. A search for “Kim Keon-hee” on “Neighbor Shopping,” a major Korean online shopping site, returns more than 2,500 hits.

While the popularity of the brand is growing, there is also backlash. While her popularity is growing, there is also a backlash against her, with accusations that she is “too conspicuous.

Last December, Kim held an apology press conference after it was discovered that her application for a position as a visiting professor at a private university had been false. In her apology, she said, ‘I am sorry and will quietly devote myself to my role as a wife. However, Kim’s publicity has only increased, as she has been seen watching movies with her husband and wife and hanging out with her dog in the Oval Office. It cannot be said that she has been ‘quiet,’ and there are calls that she has violated her pledge.

The summit meeting in Spain, mentioned at the beginning of this article, was also controversial. Kim’s fashion is being viewed as a problem by some.

I was wearing the same outfit when I visited the Maravillas market in Madrid. She was wearing a yellow frilly blouse and a blue skirt. This fashion has become a topic of conversation because it reminds people of the flag of Ukraine, which has been invaded by Russia.

Some have criticized it. ‘While she said she would be quiet at the apology press conference (late last year), how about a fashion that suggests a political statement? Of course, there are those who defend her, saying, ‘It is up to the individual to decide what to wear and what to stand for.

No matter what she does, Mrs. Kim is always a topic of conversation. It is likely that her words and actions will continue to influence the Yoon administration’s approval rating.
