South Korea’s Presidential elections have drawn to a close, with Moon Jae-in being crowned the winner.
Moon is a liberal, who favours a more open position with North Korea, and will replace ousted President Park Geun-hye. A former Human Rights Lawyer, Moon will most likely overhaul Seoul’s policies on their worrisome neighbour next door, favouring engagement with Pyongyang.
But Moon’s victory is not the only thing we’re here to report. Far more entertaining than the election themselves was the way in which they were shown to the public. Television networks in South Korea decided to inject a bit of glamour into the proceedings by using graphics to turn the candidates into Game of Thrones characters.
