A favorable impression survey of Japan, the United States, China, and North Korea conducted in South Korea after the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics revealed that China was below Japan and at the same level as North Korea. At the Beijing Winter Olympics, criticisms such as “cultural invasion” erupted in South Korea over the Hanbok that appeared at the opening ceremony. The survey results reiterate the recent deterioration in sentiment toward China.

The investigation was conducted on the 12th and 13th by Chosun Ilbo and TV Chosun asking Canter Korea. For the four countries, we adopted a method of giving 10 points if they liked it very much and 0 points if they didn’t like it at all. The Chosun Ilbo article does not mention the number of people surveyed.

According to the survey results, China’s favorability is 2.6 points. 30.5% of the respondents gave 0 points to China as “I don’t like it at all”, which is higher than the respondents (9%) who liked China (6 to 10 points). The favorable impression for the United States was as high as 7.24 points, and that for Japan was 3.40 points.

Anti-Chinese sentiment is widespread regardless of ideological tendencies or supporting political parties. The liking of the middle-aged / progress (innovation) group toward China was 2.55 points and 2.65 points, respectively, which was lower than that of the conservative group (2.69 points). Left-wing Justice Party supporters favored China at 1.94 points, which was lower than the Democratic Party of Korea (2.97 points) and the largest opposition people (2.5 points).

Especially in the 20s and 30s, anti-china feelings were conspicuous. The liking for China in their 20s was 1.78 points, and that in their 30s was 1.93 points, half of those in their 60s and above (3.29 points).

The liking for North Korea was 2.42 points, the lowest among the four countries surveyed. 38.5% of the respondents gave 0 points because they did not like it at all, which was much higher than the respondents who said they liked North Korea (8.8%).

However, by political party, both Democratic Party supporters (3.54 points) scored higher than the people’s power supporters (1.39 points).

On the other hand, the Moon Jae-in administration’s “three non-policies” against China (non-participation in the missile defense system, non-participation in the Korea-US-Japan military alliance, opposition to the additional deployment of THAAD) should be inherited (40.4%). The opinion (43.8%) antagonized.

By age group, 47.8% and 59.2% of the respondents in their 20s and 30s said that they should not inherit the three policies. Only 29.8% and 31.2% said that they should be inherited, respectively. In their 40s, they should inherit (53.3%) but should not inherit (38.%). By region, 45.3% of the respondents opposed the three non-policies in Seoul, and 62.1% agreed with Jeolla-do. (Edit / Hinata)
