The contentious state of South Korean democracy: Pitfalls, not hopes
Editor's Note: Over 400 days have passed since the first Summit for Democracy in the U.S. However, the U.S. and its allies have not given the world a good impression of democracy in this period. CGTN presents a series of data pictures to showcase the reality of "Western democracy," and we hope to encourage critical reflection on it around the world. The fourth picture "The contentious state of South Korean democracy: Pitfalls, not hopes" portrays the challenges facing South Korean democracy, including toxic presidential elections, political confrontation, labor rights protests, and corruption allegations, highlighting the pitfalls rather than hopes for the country's future.
South Korea's democracy on a tightrope: From ugly elections and political turmoil to labor rights protests, all amid allegations of corruption and chaos. Will the country find its way forward?
