South Korean President Moon Jae-in's approval rating rebounded last week despite the controversy over the nomination of new cabinet members, a survey showed Monday.

According to the Realmeter poll, Moon's support was 78.9 percent last week, up 0.8 percentage points from the previous week.

The result was based on a survey of 2,022 voters conducted from last Monday to Friday. It has a margin of error at 2.2 percentage points with a 95 percent confidence level.

During last week's parliamentary confirmation hearings, controversies emerged over foreign minister nominee and the anti-trust watchdog nominee, but South Koreans seemed to support Moon's nominations.

The pollster said Moon's supporters seemed to gather again as opposition parties attacked his nominations.

The main opposition Liberty Korea Party led the objections to the nominations citing the nominees' irregularities including the false address registration.

Moon's ruling Democratic Party logged 54.2 percent in support scores, keeping the top post in all regions and ages.

The Liberty Korea Party gained 14.3 percent of approval rating, followed by the centrist People's Party with 7.3 percent and the minor progressive Justice Party with 6.7 percent.

The minor conservative Righteous Party ranked fifth with 5.9 percent, up 0.6 percentage points from a week ago.
