Great. This is all working into North Korea and China's hands. And North Korea didn't even have to do anything.

Yes, isn't it a pity the Koreans don't sort out their own problems and continue to heed the wishes of the benevolent Japanese and Americans, who after all toil selflessly for the prosperity of all.

These politicians, likes most others, will stab their own mothers in the back if it furthered their careers.

The U.S. as well as Japan at least act in their own best interests. South Korea on the other hand works against it's own best interests. They really need to sort themselves out.

OssanAmerica, care to elaborate? How is the new likely president going to lead SK against its own best interest? What are SK's best interests?

There is a candidate that praises the NK Juche state ideology and I think he is the most favorable candidate at polls.

South Korea's best interests have been repeatedly hampered both internally and externally since the end of the Korean War. The blame lies with successive corrupt governments, both in the ROK and US. Sadly.

And as usual, it's the people who suffer.

Let's take a minute to appreciate the breathtaking arrogance on display in these 3 sentences. South Korea is by every metric the biggest stakeholder in how the conflict with North Korea gets resolved other than North Korea itself, yet some guy who doesn't live there, may not even live in Asia, is going to presume to tell South Koreans what's "in their best interest".

South Korea is still a young country occupied by Japan for decades. Then WWII. Then Korean War followed by decades of military dictators. They haven't had much of a chance but now the young people of Korea have been involved in this election. The future is got brighter. So both Trump and the new Korean president want to talk to North Korea.

Clearly the truth hurts.
