South Koreans Remain Strongly Pro-American

As newly-elected President Park Geun-hye prepares to visit Washington, DC to meet with President Obama on Tuesday, South Koreans continue to express overwhelmingly positive views of the United States and its president. …

A new Pew Research Center survey finds roughly eight-in-ten South Koreans (78%) have a favorable opinion of the U.S. While this figure is basically unchanged since Obama first took office in 2009, it is a significant improvement from the early years of the George W. Bush era. [cont.]
