A candle zombie (????) is a South Korean term for a person who only follows others' opinions, especially anti-government opinions, without thinking on his/her own. It is analogous to calling someone a "sheep" in English.

The word originated in May and June 2008, when thousands of people marched in the streets with lit candles, demonstrating against the government's decision to re-allow U.S. beef imports. The marchers were called "candle zombies" by their opponents.

It is now a wide-spread term in South Korea.[1]
