Mouth gets Philippines' Duterte in trouble again, this time for kiss

Duterte, who is visiting South Korea for the first time, said he is pleased with Moon's New South Policy, created to build economic cooperation with members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, local news service Oh My News reported Monday.

The U.S. -based group Human Rights Watch called the February remark the latest in a "series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements he has made about women". At one point, he invited two young women up to the stage to receive free copies of a book.

As responsible members of the community of nations, Duterte also said the Philippines and South Korea would continue supporting each other in regional and in the worldwide fora.

"Come here! Where's my (kiss)", he said, instructing her to explain to her husband - after learning he was not among the audience - that they were engaging in a "joke".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be hosting President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines at the presidential Blue House later this Monday. "But you can tell him that this is just a joke?" he asked.

"There wasn't malice in it", she said.

Opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros on Monday said what Duterte did during his visit to Seoul "was a despicable display of sexism and grave abuse of authority".

He said he sent questions to the Philippine government about the circumstances leading to the May 11 ouster of Sereno and expressed hopes that the Duterte administration would reply within 60 days and agree to a dialogue on issues that could threaten the judiciary's independence. "Even if the act was consensual, it was the president, possessed of awesome, even intimidating, power, who initiated it".

The left-wing Gabriela women's party condemned Duterte's act, which it said underscored his "machismo and misogyny".

While the crowd at the meeting cheered and laughed, other Filipinos took to social media to criticize Duterte's act. "It was a clear "set-up" that the Office of the President did make to acquiesce his lust for public adulation and even personal desires", Villarin said. "It's just for fun, a gimmick", he told her afterward.

Philippine Ambassador to South Korea Raul Hernandez, in an interview with Radio Television Malacanang (RTVM) on May 31, said the four bilateral agreements will further enhance and strengthen both countries' bilateral relations and cooperation in all fields.

She is married to a South Korean national, who was reportedly in attendance at the event, and has two children.
