Park Geun-hye like a battle tank general; Moon Jae-in an uninspiring and unclear speaker; Ahn Cheol-soo a listener and doer

The Korea Times has published analyses of the speaking styles of the three candidates for the Presidency of the Republic of Korea by Choi Jin, president of the Seoul-based think tank Institute of Presidential Leadership, .

Park Geun-hye

Choi described Park as a field commander with a heavily armored vehicle, referring to Park’s lineup of aides and campaign strategists with stellar resumes.

Moon Jae-in

Choi’s analysis of Rep. Moon Jae-in of the main opposition Democratic United Party (DUP): “(Moon’s) speech is not inspiring because it lacks a strong message.”

Ahn Cheol-soo

Ahn is a listener Choi said.

“He listens carefully to his audience before offering them pieces of advice. He achieved a lot but rarely showed off his accomplishments. This makes him special.”

“Instead, Ahn tries to give the right solution to his audience after listening to their side of the story.”
