Weird elections campaigning

This is how candidate campaign for votes here:

They get people (volunteers?) to stand around, in bright colours, holding signs and singing, along with just thanking you from their names “Mr Lee thanks you for your vote”. No one ever came to our door. I did see random trucks with LARGE video screens and P.A. systems that belted out recorded messages parked on street corners and occasionally saw a candidate giving a public speech from them. It’s like this weird form of marketing for a new product.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
