Koreans begin voting now!

Korea’s 21st General Election has started. Korean citizens will vote for the 300 members of their National Assembly. I have been blogging about the election, the candidates, and polls at www.KoreanElectionBlog.com.

My prediction, which I made at the blog, is a little on the high side. I said the Democratic Party of Korea, the current plurality/ruling party, would win with 160 seats, while most Korean newspapers are predicting in the high 140’s (which would still be enough to control).

Watch me and American University Adjunct Professer Lee Jong-eun discuss the election:

We will both be talking about the election results on Facebook and Twitter tomorrow night. Follow our socials:
