March 10, 2017, history was made in South Korea as Park Geun Hye — also the nation’s first female president — became the first Korean president to be impeached and removed from office.

After months of peaceful protest in the country, celebration abounds. Here is how Koreans are reacting to the news:

The solidarity continues:

“Park Geun Hye (66, unemployed)”

When Trump’s words were kind of useful:

“Go home and get a job! Go home! Get a job! Get a job!”

Kind of useful, part 2:

“You’re FIRED.”


Dreams really do come true:

“I had a dream, and Park Geun Hye had been impeached and was in prison. She had lost all color in her hair and it was all white. Is this a crap dream? TT March 13, 2013
