South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol’s Approval Rating Rises to 36.7 Percent

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol’s approval rating has increased to 36.7 percent, with positive assessments of his recent overseas trip being a key factor, according to a recent poll by Realmeter. In the survey of 2,515 eligible voters, Yoon’s performance garnered a 1.3 percentage point increase in positive assessments from the previous week, while disapproval dropped by 1.2 percentage points to 59.9 percent.

Yoon’s approval rating has been fluctuating in the mid-30 percent range since August. The positive impact of his overseas trips, such as attending summits with ASEAN and the G20, was noted by analysts as a contributing factor to the boost in his approval ratings. Yoon recently returned from visits to Indonesia and India for these summits.
