Many Koreans want to escape to Canada, what’s up?

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Searches for “Canadian immigration” become tendency Twitter in South Korea after Yoon Suk-yeol won the presidential election in the land of ginseng. Yoon is the conservative candidate presented as the Korean version of Donald Trump.

Citing Insider, Yoon’s win has prompted a number of South Koreans to consider the option of changing countries, and Canada tops the list of countries many Koreans are considering. Twitter analytics site GetDayTrends reported that there were nearly 16,000 tweets on the topic in the early hours of Thursday (3/17/2022).

A Twitter user who uses username @Im_not_pencil tweeted, “I need to learn English and save money so I can move to Canada. I don’t want to live here anymore.”

The Twitter trend in Korea is similar to what happened when Donald Trump won the US presidential election in 2016. At that time, the Canadian immigration website was inaccessible.

Yoon Suk-yeol has been called a “nightmare” for Korea due to his controversial figure. Yoon’s controversial campaign promises include a pledge to abolish the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family. She asserts that women do not face systemic discrimination on the basis of gender.

He is also believed to have stoked anti-China sentiment in Korea by promising to forge closer ties with the United States.
