South Korean Politician Adds China Interference Charge to Election Rigging Claim

In recent years, there have been growing suspicions among South Korean online users over China’s interference operations in the country. Although the issue has attracted quite a bit of online discussion, it has never broken into a mainstream debate in South Korea.

That might change soon, however, with the latest suspicions raised by Min Kyung-wook, a journalist-turned-politician with the country’s conservative United Future Party (UFP), the main opposition party. His name is currently dominating trending keyword boards of main internet portal websites in South Korea. Min caught public attention after he claimed that the result of the latest election in South Korea was manipulated.
