Just this past weekend, South Korea's Yu and Kaohsiung are absolute protagonists.
December 25 is the first anniversary of the Mayor of Kaohsiung in South Korea. Kaohsiung citizens can launch a "referendum on dismissal" in accordance with regulations. So on Saturday, 21st, there were two teams around the "removal of Korean Yoga" or "supporting Korean Yoga", the "Southern Rise of Kaohsiung Glorious Anniversary Parade" and the "Wecare Kaohsiung" parade of South Korea. The simultaneous appearance. This time, with only 20 days left in the 2020 Taiwan elections, and the election battle between the two sides was in full swing, it set off a small climax, which was described as "outpost" by the media in the island.
In these two demonstrations, the slogan supporting the Korean side was "Taiwan Yingwen, DPP"; while the parade on the Korean side was super-long with the eight characters "Recovering Kaohsiung and defending Taiwan". The big green cloth strips are leading styles.
But what embarrassed the DPP who planned the strike in Korea was that not only their slogans raised questions: "Why use the slogan of 'Rehabilitating Kaohsiung'? It feels like Kaohsiung belongs to the DPP, isn't it that they will be reinstated? The photo of the huge empty curtain under the curtain quickly spread throughout the Internet, and was ridiculed by South Korea ’s Yu as “the largest shame in Taiwan ’s democratic history”.

Let's talk about the number of parades. The South Korean side claims 350,000 people, while the South Korean side claims 500,000 people. Without first raising whether it is possible that the city of Xiong is flooded with 850,000 people in one day, the essence of the problem is pointed out by the Taiwan Times Newsletter: It is unwritten tacit agreement to report the number of participants in the elections. The Kaohsiung police have expressed respect for both parties. The organizer will not estimate the number of parades, but the newspaper has grasped the return status of the police branch in its jurisdiction. The number of participants in the Korean parade was about 25,000, and the Korean parade was about 60,000. In addition, people from Taiwan ’s “National Security” unit closely observed in Kaohsiung. It is estimated that about 40,000 people attended the Korean strike, while there were 100,000 people in the South Korean side, a gap of about 2.5 times was similar to that estimated by the local police.
In fact, no matter who there are more people, the media analysis is very reasonable: just to see that South Korea ’s Yu can allow so many people to come to Kaohsiung to participate in parades, spend and even spend the night, the goal of making a fortune has already made the local Street vendors, restaurants, and so on have all benefited from it, and this is still in the big ticket warehouse of the Green Camp. South Korea ’s Yu has already won half.
The reason why these two opposing parades are so valued by the outside world is that the 2020 Taiwan elections are still filled with a strange and uncertain atmosphere, such as distorted opinion polls, such as network data being manipulated by the cyber army and inaccurate ... According to the analysis by the China Ratings Agency: Cai Yingwen's election seems to have an advantage, but the green camp is quite guilty in many ways; South Korea ’s election seems to be unfavorable, but many people are quite confident that South Korea ’s Yu has a big win, or We think that there is opportunity to reverse victory even if it is not good now.
Therefore, the number of people participating in the two parades on the 21st, the mood at the scene, the source of the people, and the popular sentiment reflected in the structure of the people, to a large extent, truly reflected the Korean Yu and Cai Yingwen. Momentum. The story of the island ’s elections turning over the night before the election has been staged many times, not to mention that “the 2020 election is the most elusive election in history”, as the Kuomintang Taipei City Councillor Luo Zhiqiang said: before the day of invoicing, really Know who loses and who wins.
