It really didn't matter that he was oppositional or for "democracy"- by the time he finally became president, all the civil institutions had been set up by the US-backed dictators to favor the ruling elite, which allowed the IMF to swoop in and set up the "reforms" which have resulted in a lack of jobs , growing income disparity, and the highest suicide rate in the OECD. Young South Koreans now refer to their country as "Joseon Hell" ((Joseon was the last ruling Korean monarchy which actually enabled Japan to colonize Korea and was marked by rampant nepotism).
