Now the game is a draw. Ahn Cheol-soo has caught up with Moon Jae-in.


Of the numerous national slogans Korea gives itself, discarded by each new administration, I think Dynamic Korea was the best. So dynamic is Korea, that even I— a born, raised and bred Seoulite—sometimes find myself confused.

The political arena is, of course, a bloodbath. Especially the presidential elections. Well we had all been thinking Moon Jae-in was certain to win. Just take a look at the polls. Moon’s lead was too strong to be reversed within a mere 60 days. At least that’s what we thought.

Well, guess what? It has happened. Ahn Cheol-soo, the People’s Party nominee, overtook Moon in a poll released on Sunday

Welcome to Dynamic Korea, where Ahn has caught the Moon
