Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Ho Ching’s latest unconventional couple’s pose has inspired savage memes that are circulating on social media.
PM Lee is in Busan, South Korea this week for the ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit, which is taking place from 25-26 Nov. Accompanied by Mdm Ho, PM Lee took a short trip to the South Korean capital of Seoul prior to the summit to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-In in the Blue House and take in some sights in the city.
As part of their sightseeing tour, PM Lee and Mdm Ho visited Ewha Womans University and decided to strike an unconventional pose at the foot of the university’s main staircase, which PM Lee compared to the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
In the pose, the PM and his wife can be seen standing a few feet apart and reaching forward so their palms meet. Revealing that they were trying to mimic the Arc de Triomphe monument that sits at the end of the Champs-Élysées, PM Lee joked on Facebook: “One more shot we took at the “Champs-Élysées” of Ewha Womans University. Maybe we’re forming our own Arc de Triomphe?”
While the picture charmed several netizens, others have made a meme out of the pose. Take a look at some of the most creative memes here:
This is not the first unconventional pose PM Lee and his wife have made during their overseas travels. In June this year, the couple struck the Glico man pose in Osaka, Japan:
We found the Glico man and had a bit of fun! The Glico man sign board has evolved over the years, and the current one is the sixth generation.(MCI Photo by Chwee)
