Will the sun shine on Moon’s South Korea? – Inside Story
It’s the return of liberalism in South Korea. The election of President Moon Jae-in marks a major shift in the country’s political landscape.
Conservatives have been in charge for nearly a decade.
But after the last six months, which ended with the previous president impeached and facing jail, it’s not surprising that South Koreans want change.
The question is – what will change look like?
Moon’s policies could lead to dialogue with North Korea, a long-time adversary, and could harm relations with the US, a long-time ally
Is he up to the challenges?
