Regional Election is Coming On ITS way...
The eye-blaring and eye-blasting banners hung everywhere we go in every nook and cranny of the city. Well, the election for regional representatives is coming its way in Korea. On May 30th to 31st..any eligible voter could just turn up at the ballot booth to cast their vote. So, here is a view I took right in front of campus...to show that even campus is fully loaded with banners of wanna-be.
But, what I like the most about all of the democratic fiesta is how the discourses on politics are written or made in such a way to 'attract' the voters:
"여러분의 소중한 한 표 새정치의 중심이 됩니다"
(Your precious vote is the center of new politics) hmmm..
"우리의 소중한 한 표로"
'Through our precious vote...'
기권 NO, 투표 YES
Abstain NO, Vote YES.
Or..in Indonesian language...we're so accustomed to the phrases like:
GOLPUT NO, COBLOS YES
or..we could even see: some phrases using the latest trendy catchphrase of the famous Advertisement:
투표하는 당신! 잘 ~ 생겼다!
"You who votes! Gooood Looking!"
etc.....Selamat berpesta demokrasi, ya, Korea!
