Yoon Suk-yeol criticizes Moon Jae-in's government for "doing stupid things for 5 years"


2022-06-23: [Article Link Yoon Suk-yeol's approval for nuclear power policy went off "five years of stupidity," Korean netizens argued. According to the South Korean Journal of East Asia, President Yoon Suk-yeol visited the Korean nuclear power company Doosan Energy in Changwon, Gyeongnam Province, on 22, saying: “If we do not do anything stupid over the past five years to build a more solid nuclear power ecosystem, there may be no competition now. According to many Korean media outlets, this is Yoon Suk-yeol's “positive criticism” of the government's “denuclear power” policy. Yoon Suk-yeol, 22nd visit to Doosan Energy, Korea's nuclear power company, News News Agency, Korea According to KLA, Yoon Suk-yeol criticized the “denuclear power” policy pursued by the previous government during his visit to the Korea Nuclear Power Enterprise and said that the direction of the nuclear power industry should be changed immediately. According to Yoon Suk-yeol, the Korea nuclear power station “has reached the highest level in the world in terms of technology and stability, and this competitiveness does not occur overnight”. He claims that if those who advocate “de-nuclear power” see “these facilities of such a magnitude as amazing (nuclear power) and visit the industrial ecology here”, they will insist that “de-nuclear power” requires a question mark. Yoon Suk-yeol, 22nd visit to Doosan Energy, a nuclear power company in Korea: Korea's Korean daily has previously reported that the former President of the Republic of Korea has been pursuing a “de-nuclear power” policy — stopping the construction of new nuclear power plants and prolonging the use of old nuclear power plants. This policy has also provoked a bipolar reaction from Korean society. The Korean daily argues that Yoon Suk-yeol’s statement during his visit to the nuclear power company on 22 September was in fact announcing the “total abolition” of the government’s “de-nuclear power” policy. Korean Internet users have expressed their views on Yoon Suk-yeol and his different approaches to the development of nuclear power in Yoon Suk-yeol, as reported by the Korean media. One of the Internet users who supported Yoon Suk-yeol’s vigorous development of Korea’s nuclear power program said, “The government’s policy of “de-nuclear power” should be accused of doing so. I hope that both the ruling and opposition parties will fill the gap in South Korea’s failure to develop nuclear power over the past five years by supporting policies for nuclear power development as soon as possible.” Another supporter of Yoon Suk-yeol even referred to Man as a “guilty”, saying that “the Republic of Korea (development) went back 10 years under his administration”. A Korean blogger who supported the policy of “de-nuclear power” in Man, said, “Who's stupid enough to wait,” and said, “Don't rush to advertise Yoon Suk-yeol like an advertising company.” Another supporter of Cao said, "Who's going to try building a nuclear power plant in Seoul? It's supposed to be run by the crowd with a baseball bat!" He accused Yoon Suk-yeol of creating a danger. There are also supporters of Manjiang who have expressed concern that the development of nuclear power in South Korea could lead to a nuclear accident, saying: “There will be no future nuclear accident in South Korea as there will be in Japan and it will be over if there is a similar accident in South Korea.”
