Yoo Ah In Twitter Update 2012.12.20 and Its Translations ~ The Disappointment Feelings



What’s up SIKseekers! I told you that I’d see you soon, and voila! ๐Ÿ˜€ Here I am with another translations from Yoo Ah In’s latest tweet!


After his last tweet on Wednesday about the presidential election voting, which resulted the first woman president in South Korea, on last Thursday night atย 10:55 pm KST Yoo Ah In popped out and responded a tweet from Mr. Heo Ji Woong. Heo isย a film critic and a reporter from GQ Life Magazine who often writes about politics in his twitter feed too like Yoo Ah In does.



Here are the translations that my Korean friend Jay told to me~

Heo Ji Woong said,

“This is it. This is the kind of mental tragedy from the result of the presidential election. Someone made the party’s issue a moral issue that it makes those who didn’t make [the same] decision feel guilty. A claim that we all are right and you all are wrong, it makes people stressed out and damped. In this way the future can never win.”

And Yoo Ah In replied,

“Heo Ji Woong nim, I have a wish to retweet all of your posts today. [But I can] only RT one of them.”

My friend told me that the result of presidential election has discouraged young people who majorly voted for Democratic’s candidate Moon Jae In. The reason is the unappealing background of Park Geun Hye and the fear of a setback for democracy.

The new president Ms. Park Geun Hye is the daughter of former dictatorย Park Chung Hee, who seized power in a 1961 coup and ruled for 18 years until he was gunned down by his security chief in 1979.ย Moon Jae In, noted that while he languished in jail thanks to the repressive rule of her father, Park lived the life of a “princess” in the presidential palace.


Park Geun Hye served as his First Lady following the 1974 assassination of her mother by a North Korean-backed killer and that legacy has tainted her candidacy for many South Koreans who are still divided over their former ruler’s repression.


My friend also said that Wednesday’s presidential election was like senior citizens vs junior ones. And, you know, the result was like indicating that young people lost, in contrast to the sayings that the future belongs to them. He also told me that some young Koreans think of leaving the country to oppose the new government. That’s how depressed they’re feeling at the moment.


I understand that Yoo Ah In isย sharing the same sentiment with these people since his name conjures up stark youth. But I hope their “fear” of loosing freedom is only an empty fear. We first have to wait and see, right? ๐Ÿ™‚


Thanks for the translations, J! Let’s pray for the better future ^ ^ย And happy TGIF to you all!


PS: by the time this article published, Yoo Ah In just made a long speech on twitter (on 21st December).

      You’re welcome dear ๐Ÿ™‚ I do believe that as long as the government can manage to embrace young people inspirations, the situation will get better.
