Amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has swept across the globe, South Korea has emerged not only as a model in containment and quarantine efforts, but has become the first country in the world to successfully hold a major election since the outbreak began. This is in stark contrast to other countries around the world such as the United Kingdom, France and the United States where voting has been suspended. As such, the foreign media spotlight has fallen on South Korea once more, in hopes that the country could provide some important lessons on how to safely conduct an election. With the voters now having spoken, what does the election result signify for the nation moving forward in the time of COVID-19 and the post-pandemic world? We sit down with our panel of experts to answer all of these questions and more, in this special, post-election roundtable discussion.
