I Was A Korean Campaign Worker

Perhaps not exactly. I was digging around for something else this afternoon and came across this photo and leaflet (click for the big versions):

That's me on the right (in the left picture) about nine years ago. The guy on the left is a Korean politician who happened to be hanging out around the Waegwan train station the day I decided to take a weekend trip to Seoul. Korean election day, at least in Waegwan, was sort of a zoo: I remember trucks and vans with loudspeakers, and lots of people walking around circulating playing card-sized leaflets (like you see on the right) with pictures of the politicians on them. I had my picture taken with him because he took the time to shake my hand as I came out of the station.
