Let’s exercise our rights today<3.”

Actor Lee Jun Ki wrote, “Because I was told to upload a proof shot keke. Are you watching over me~. I woke up at 6:35 AM! I went to my father’s and finished voting at around 8~^^ Everyone, we’re the owners of Korea. Go write the new history ^^ It’s cold, so dress warm~!” and uploaded a photo of himself at the polls. He also wrote, “Yes, yes. I thought I would just naturally point, so I just put my hands in my pockets hehe. Be careful and careful again about the laws when you take proof shots keke. And everyone, upload proof shots, ke.” He was talking about the rules in proof shots that prevented anyone from taking photos that would allude to who you were voting for. Citizens are forbidden from pointing at certain directions or taking photos while in line to vote.

Actress Yoon Eun Hye actually broke one of the rules when she took a photo of herself in line to vote. She wrote, “Proof shot before I go back to filming. I finished voting!! There’s no place to take a proof shot.. ke. I took one pitifully! It’s really cold~ Dress warm like me. ^^“.

He added on, ”Everyone who has a dog, if you haven’t voted, go as you walk your dog~!! ^^ Dogs can’t go into the voting center, so the dog walking party has to be more than two ke ke“, and then added, “Oh it should be the dog walking voting party ke ke“.

B.A.P‘s Bang Yong Guk tweeted a photo and also wrote, “Since a lot of people are offering wise words, if I could just say something short to the young adults out there, it’d be to say that rather than ending this with just a vote, I hope that this will continue your interests in social and political issues. In a few years, your rights will be the biggest source of power.”

love how no one openly supports anyone, feels kinda weird to me
rylee900 19th-Dec-2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
Mm. Where I live you get the select few who are open about it, but it seems the majority are v secretive about it. I guess Korea is the same way? Or maybe it's another one of those things where they're not allowed to say because of fans.
askbask 19th-Dec-2012 09:11 pm (UTC)
Lots of good that did - five new years with no progress! Oh well, a shitty female conservative candidate is still slightly better than a shitty male one - maybe some of the symbolic effect can have the tiniest of effect on the Korean workspace. I certainly don't trust her launching any real policies leading to change.

Artists mostly keep mum about who, what they support, although Hyori retweeted Moon supportive messages and some others can be read via what they talk about as well. Ccertainly people surrounding them are more open - producer Cho from Loen is always entertaining, even when you share his frustration at the shitty state of things. Recommended twitter if you read Korean.

I don't think this is going to be helpful to women. As soon as this woman takes office and starts screwing up it will just give the women haters another excuse to bash women and keep them from success.

In korea, if you get on line, do they have to let you vote? Or do they just close the polls at closing time, too bad?

Love this guy even more now! I like that he's reminding people it's not just about voting, it's about being informed.
