Ilbe Storehouse(일베 저장소) is South Korean far-right populist community website. They are known for their extreme abhorrence of liberal politicians.

The site is highly anti-feminism, anti-Jeolla province[note 1], anti-LGBT, extreme meritocracy, extreme pro-business & anti-labor, ableism, anti-immigration political inclination.

Unlike DCinside, it is more like a mainstream South Korean extreme right than an alt-right. However, it was affected by Netto-uyoku.

Unlike DCinside, Ilbe's image in South Korea is very bad. This is because they have been engaged in extreme right-wing political actions in real life as well. For this reason.. Even though DCinside is much larger than ilbe, people blame ilbe even more. (Unlike Ilbe members, DC members do not engage in extreme right-wing activities offline.)

South Korea's center-left liberal media have not yet reported DCinside as far-right. But center-left liberal media in South Korea countless reported that ilbe is far-rights.[1][2] A conservative newspaper, "Dong-A Ilbo"(동아일보), also reported that ilbe is fascist.[3]

They are ultra-rightists, so perhaps quite natural, but they are very negative about issues related to 'political correctness' and 'social justice'.

They mainly support the Liberty Korea Party politically.
