The mayor of Kaohsiung, Koreayo, had just gone to the United States, when the “Green Army” questioned the predicted Harvard trip as “talking big”. Korean Yo said that he would face the American line with the spirit of “lion fight rabbit”. His English has no Oxford accent and is 100% Kaohsiung accent.
As for whether to talk about the “92 Consensus” in the United States, he responded that he believed that some students or professors would raise this issue at that time.
Taiwanese media pointed out that rather than Korean Yo’s interviews in the United States, it was the “misplaced treasure” of the United States last year that made up for Korean Yo’s political lessons to further understand the key figure who changed Taiwan’s political arena. American think tank scholars’curiosity about the “Korean Current” probably really wanted to kill a cat.
Last year, the United States rushed to make up lessons on Korean politics.
According to Taiwan’s Lianhe Daily on April 10, Mayor Koreayo of Kaohsiung set out early to visit the United States late at night on September 9 in order to adjust the jet lag in his speech at Harvard University. He will visit Boston, Los Angeles and other places within nine days, give speeches at Harvard and Stanford University, and have dinner with overseas Chinese and visit enterprises.
The Harvard speech was interpreted as equivalent to getting tickets for the 2020 election. Yo said he dared not say so and felt boastful. The speech was only made three months ago by several professors who were interested in last year’s Kaohsiung mayoral election.
As for the Kuomintang Standing Committee’s desire to directly recruit Korean Yo to participate in the leadership election in Taiwan, Korean Yo said, “It is imperative that the United States do a solid job and not let Kaohsiung and Taiwan leak air.”
Kuomintang Chairman Wu Dunyi announced recently that he would not run for president. Although Kaohsiung Mayor Koreayo has not yet officially voted for the election, the party has sought various solutions for the election of Koreayo. According to the Party, the best way for Korean Yo to appear is to coordinate with former Mayor Ju Lilun of Xinbei City and former President Wang Jinping of the Legislative Yuan to voluntarily concede and directly recruit Korean Yo; the middle way is that if Zhu and Wang refuse to concede, they will not hold the primary election, but coordinate the recruitment of candidates according to the polls; if they want to hold the primary election, they will use the way of recruitment or special invitation to include Korean Yo in the primary election, but this is the case. It’s the “next step”.
On the day of Yo’s visit to the United States, Korean fans held banners and shouted slogans such as “Mayor of Korea, President of Korea, Save Taiwan” or “Mayor of Korea, Come on”.

But in addition to the Kuomintang and Korean fans, there is also the United States.
On November 11, Taiwan’s China Times published an analytical article pointing out that in the Kaohsiung mayoral election last year, there was widespread disdain for Korean Yo from all walks of life, as did the United States. At that time, the outside world speculated that Chen Qimai would pass the customs easily. Unexpectedly, the Korean Current was like a wildfire.
For many years, the United States has paid close attention to Cai Yingying, Zhu Lilun and other blue and green camp elites, and the channels of communication are also smooth. But in the past, they were familiar with the righteous and scholarly political leaders. They expected that the image of Korean Yoga chivalrous and unrestrained ordinary people would set off a tornado in Taiwan, and the curiosity of American think tank scholars would really kill a cat.
South Korean Yo’s 9-day trip will set a record for the leaders of the counties and cities in the island to speak at the Harvard Fei Zhengqing Center and the Stanford Hoover Research Institute in the United States. The focus of observation is not just how many people attended the lecture. After all, in the era of advanced information technology, people want to listen to Korean Yo’s lecture, and there are many Internet users.
More importantly, last year the US was so curious about the phenomenon of “Korean Current” that it was eager to know where his popular charm came from and where Taiwan would be brought in the future. If open communication, interaction is bound to be limited. Now the number of participants is reduced, which highlights the importance that think tank scholars attach to him. It also highlights that this is a political supplementary lesson for Korea Yo by the US side.
What about the 1992 Consensus in the United States?
During this trip to the United States, Korean Yo will visit well-known enterprises in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley, hold several symposiums to attract investment for Kaohsiung, and also communicate with overseas Chinese in Boston and Southern California.

South Korean Yu also said that the trip to the United States was a purely “academic trip” and visits to high-tech manufacturers and overseas Chinese, but he felt that the expectations given now were many, as if he had lost the original intention of simply speaking and exchanging opinions with students at school.
As for whether the “1992 Consensus” will be mentioned in the speech, Korean Yu said that the theme of his speech was basically the change of the Taiwanese people and the expectations of the Taiwanese people after last year’s Mayor Election in Kaohsiung. After the lecture, we will open our door to questions and answers. I believe that many students or professors will ask questions in this
regard. He will answer them again in that state.
“Harvard scholars are curious about the Korean Cyclone”
However, as soon as the U.S. tour of Korea Yo began, there was a storm of visits to Harvard.
Someone claimed in the social media that he was a Harvard alumnus and a co-researcher at Fei Zhengqing’s China Research C上海419论坛enter, but he had never 爱上海been notified of Yo’s coming to speak爱上海, nor did the research center annou上海419论坛nce the speech. Kaohsiung’s “self-talk is basically bluffing (talking big), disrespect for the Fei Zhengqing Center, and ignorance of the rigor of academic activities.”
In response, Wang Shaanqiu, the press director of Kaohsiung Municipal Government, said that Korean Yo was invited to speak and exchange at Harvard University and fully respected the arrangements of the Harvard school; as for other individuals who were not invited to participate in the activities, they should ask their own school instead of “like a frog in the well”, as long as they did not see it, they thought that the world did not exist.
She also said that the Korean Yo’s speeches at Harvard and Stanford were closed on a small scale.
