Voters in South Korea have begun casting their ballots ahead of Tuesday's presidential election. This is the first time for the country to elect a president through early voting.
So far voter response has been good, as voter turnout and queuing has been seen across the nation. Early voting was first used in 2014 for local elections. Current turnout has been higher than in local elections, seen as close to 6 million.
The National Election Committee expects it to be a record-high turnout with more than 20 percent of the vote to be reached by the end of Friday.
