These Idols Have Already Voted For Korea’s Next President

With the 2017 South Korean presidential election underway, idols have taken to social media to encourage others to vote.

Presidential candidates have already used music from idols to help spread their message while they were campaigning, but now idols themselves have engaged with the elections themselves, as they encouraged Koreans to get out there and vote. To show their own involvement in the process, dozens of South Korean celebrities posed for photos of themselves voting, in hopes that it would remind, or inspire, others to do the same.

Still more poured out on Instagram and Twitter to show their support of the election. Actors, actresses, idols, and MCs all came together to post about the voting process.

Idols are not the only Koreans participating in the early voting sessions. The Korea Herald reported on various voting locations each having long lines of enthusiastic voters ready to cast their ballot.

Around 3,500 polling stations are open across South Korea for early voting. This session is the first early voting opportunity since the system was introduced in 2013. Any Korean with an identification card is eligible to vote.
