With the finish line approaching for a fortnight, the candidates were scattered across the country today (22nd) to wage a campaign.

After yesterday's TV debate, the candidates' mouths became harsher.

Reporter Kang Min-woo covered the story.


Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung revisited Gyeonggi and Incheon among the metropolitan areas, which are considered to be the main battlegrounds of the presidential election, and aimed at People's Strength candidate Yoon Seok-yeol.

He warned that a crisis of democracy would come in an era in which prosecutors are more stringent than the military regime.

People's Strength candidate Yoon Seok-yeol attacked the bases in Chungcheong and Honam that lead to the west coast belt.

He denounced the Democratic Party, who described himself as a war-maniac, as yielding to North Korea.

The current government's real estate policy, which caused house prices to soar, was also not a 'mistake', but rather 'intentional' in not supplying housing, saying that if you become a landlord, you will be conservative.

Justice Party candidate Shim Sang-jung visited Daejeon and Chungnam and emphasized that he is the only suitable person to lead the green economy.
