During election season in Korea, campaigning is very in-your-face. It's not about politicians handing out pamphlets, but about having a troupe of people wearing the same color hand out pamphlets and yelling in public while the election trucks in the background play unavoidably loud music while someone else screams into megaphones about why you should vote for them. Even our Korean friends dislike it...

They need to do this in America, oh no wait, the riots would cause to many deaths.
The car with the speakers remind me of how it is here during the election time... They play parodies of songs telling you to vote for them and they are like EVERYWHERE. XD
I still want to live in South Korea, despite that! I actually think it would be kind of enjoyable as something different than people being really quiet natured
And then you have the Canadian elections.
I don't know why, but I love this. I do campaigning in the US and I am just amazed by the numbered candidates posters with the enthusiastic volunteers (I'm guessing?) and how "polite" they were - minus the giant yelling. Do campaigns in Korea take foreigners as volunteers to help out by chance? I think it would be so interesting!
Elections are so annoying in the U.S. The commercials are on whenever ur online or watching t.v. People come knocking on ur door. This last for a long time.

I'm pretty sure no one in any country ever likes election time. The US 2012 presidential ones were particularly brutal. I had never been more thankful for elections to be over. 
Oh, this is nothing. That's how some businesses are operated in Turkey: a loud truck with blasting speakers just driving around the apartment buildings all day everyday. At least when election season's over, it's done for you guys. :)
Damn... I wonder if those people even believe what they're advertising...

The vans with the mega-super-gigantic-phones looked like some back to the future-ish time machine!
