Moon, wearing a blue jumper, went from Geoje to Busan… Presence grows

Former President Moon Jae-in is giving strength to some candidates of the Democratic Party of Korea ahead of the April 10 general elections. Accordingly, some are speculating that former President Moon may be engaging in an all-out election campaign.

According to the political world on the 28th, former President Moon wore a blue jumper the day before, unusually for a former president, and visited his hometown of Geoje, South Gyeongsang Province to encourage Democratic Party candidate Byun Kwang-yong. It is also known that a meeting with candidate Bae Jae-jeong, who is running for Sasang, Busan, his old constituency, is scheduled.

In particular, the meeting with Candidate Byeon is said to be meaningful in that former President Moon personally visited Mt. Gyeryong in Geoje. This is because former President Moon appeared in a ‘preventive’ format to meet with people who visited Pyeongsan Village. In addition, former President Moon wore a blue jumper and shirt to support candidate Byun and was accompanied by his wife, First Lady Kim Jeong-sook.

It is known that former President Moon is also coordinating a meeting with candidate Bae Jae-jeong, who is running for Sasang in Busan, on the 29th. With such active actions, there are speculations that former President Moon may be taking the lead in rallying support ahead of the election.

During the nomination process, there was noise as a large number of pro-Moon (pro-Moon Jae-in) groups within the party were eliminated, but the analysis is that if former President Moon takes the lead, he can help absorb the pro-Moon supporters who turned away due to disappointment with the nomination process.

The People Power Party criticized, “You said you would live a forgotten life, but I wonder what the people will think.” Jeong Gwang-jae, spokesperson for the People Power Party, took a direct hit, saying, “What will the people think of former President Moon jumping into the middle of the election ahead of the general election?”

However, former President Moon’s side dismissed it as “a mere encouragement, not a full-fledged election campaign.”

Democratic Party Standing Joint Campaign Committee Chairman Kim Boo-gyeom, who served as Prime Minister during the Moon Jae-in administration, said in a radio interview that day, “We are encouraging some candidates near Yangsan,” and “It is difficult to go out on the streets and support them.”
