Election Time

This Wednesday is Election Day here in Korea which most importantly means I get the day off! Campaign crews greet me at the subway every morning these days. There are usually 4-6 people who line up all wearing the same outfit, handing out campaign cards. They also have super loud pop music blaring in the background. This sort of campaign isn't isolated to one spot. Trucks with open backs like the one above drive around the city blaring different messages. Often there are dancers or performers along in the truck. It's a real show. I saw a robotic mannequin with a picture of a candidate's face bowing from one of these trucks. Frankly, I like the effort and appreciate the creativity of trying to be in more than one place at once!
