South Korean TV announces election results with Game of Thrones parody
SEOUL, South Korea - South Koreans don't need to be bored by hours of vote-counting and punditry that fill airtime ahead of the announcement of a winner in the country's presidential election.
Television networks on Tuesday went out of their way to entertain on election day, including graphics that turned the candidates into Game of Thrones characters and hip hop artists.
Seoul Broadcasting System featured headshots of front-runner Moon Jae-in placed on the body of a knight similar to one in the popular medieval fantasy epic. Moon's likeness also flew on a dragon and rode a horse as SBS showed vote counts.
You just need to watch it for yourself.
SBS also dressed the five main candidates like hip hop musicians in colorful, baggy clothes.
Such animation is a big part of election day TV in South Korea, with other themes like Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings being used in the past.
