Ok, so this topic was a bit of an experiment, and it didn’t really work out as expected. Well, it did and it didn’t.
First off, we’re fond of Cunningham’s Law, especially on the internet. The best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question, but to post the wrong answer.” In other words, if you ask people for help, they might not care to respond, but if you tell someone something wrong, then they’ll correct you, and you’ll get the answer you’re looking for. Brilliant, eh?
So, we know that people aren’t overly fond of the president. Everyone has their own reasons. Us: we’re indifferent to her. She hasn’t done anything that’s really harmed us, nor has she done much that helped us. I think I’m more aware of the changes Obama has done in the US than the changes Park Geun-Hye has done in Korea, and I don’t live in the US! But when we ask Korea people about the president, they’re not too happy.
You might be asking, then, if people don’t feel that she’s the best president, then why didn’t they Cunningham’s Law all over the place with this week’s video! Well, we had far fewer Korean people in the booth this week than usual, and that’s probably because more people were afraid of saying bad things about the president online.
In other words, our experiment this week was to see who would win: fear of saying bad things about the president vs Cunningham’s Law, and the former won. So, we won’t ask you what you think, in case you’re uncomfortable with saying so online, but it’s something worth thinking about.
