A record number of 15 candidates have thrown their hats into the ring for the upcoming election. Some of the issues at the forefront of the race have been job creation, welfare, and political reforms, but in light of heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula, national security has taken center stage. Candidates have been heavily focused on portraying themselves as the most trustworthy commander-in-chief. Other issues that are also drawing attention include the THAAD deployment, the sexual slavery agreement with Japan, and the potential reopening of the inter-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex.
We sit down to discuss some of the key pledges put forth by each candidate and what some of the most pressing issues will be for the next president of taking office.
