  • The Taegeukgi rallies (Korean: 태극기 집회), also known as the Pro-Park rallies (Korean: 친박집회), were a series of counter-candlelight rallies supporting the former president of South Korea Park Geun-hye. The Taegeukgi protestors or the Taegeukgi crowds (Korean: 태극기 부대) got there because they vehemently swung or wore South Korean flags (the Taegeukgi) during rallies. On October 26, 2016, the first candlelight protest was held, demanding Geun-hye to step down from office. Since then, an estimated 18 million protesters over the course of 6 months gathered in Gwanghwamun Plaza to demand the resignation and impeachment of former president Park Geun-hye. The demonstrations continued until Geun-hey was dismissed from presidency in March 2017, even after the Constitutional Court confirmed the National Assembly's call for impeachment. Public anger centered on Park Geun-hye's role in political corruption regarding his personal acquaintance, Choi Soon-sil, and her role in unlawfully intervening with state affairs and coercing conglomerates to contribute large sums of money to Choi's own foundation. Pro-Park advocates, also known as 'silver patriots' representing an older generation, believed anti-Park forces were the pro-North Korean sympathizers and manipulated by biased media. To them, what they were doing was for the protection of liberal democracy that they think they had contributed to rescue from direct communist threats in the past. (en)
