Continuing from yesterday (28th), we present the findings of the KBS public opinion poll.
The Ministry of National Defense is advocating for the relocation of the bust of General Hong Beom-do to the Military Academy. They argue that his affiliation with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union overshadows his contributions to the independence movement. However, 63.7% of respondents disagreed with this proposal, while only 26.1% agreed.
In July, the tragic case of Corporal Chae from the Marine Corps, who lost his life during a search operation in heavy rain, stirred controversy. We inquired as to whether a special prosecutor was necessary to uncover the truth. Surprisingly, 61.1% believed it was necessary, almost double the percentage (32.3%) who thought no special investigation was required.
When asked about the Japanese government’s decision to release Fukushima contaminated water into the ocean, concerns were raised regarding its potential negative effects on both the environment and human health. 71.2% of respondents expressed their worries, while 27.0% dismissed the concerns, citing scientific validation of the procedure.
The attitude towards discharging contaminated water varied depending on individuals’ ideological orientations. Among self-identified progressives, 89.5% were concerned, whereas 42.3% of conservatives shared the same sentiment, with 55.7% expressing no concerns.
Regarding expected changes in seafood consumption following the release of contaminated water, the majority (58.6%) predicted a decrease compared to previous levels, while 35.0% anticipated no significant change, and a mere 5.0% believed consumption would increase.
Furthermore, we examined public opinion on the findings of the Audit and Inspection Board’s audit, which highlighted alterations in house prices, income, and employment during the Moon Jae-in administration. A majority of 47.5% labeled it a “retaliatory political audit,” surpassing the 40.6% who considered it a “legally conducted audit in accordance with procedures.”
This survey was conducted by Korea Research on behalf of KBS, involving telephone interviews with 1,000 adult men and women across the country for three days, starting on the 25th. For more detailed information, please visit the KBS News website.
