[The Chosun Ilbo, December 6 2007] Candidates Use Colors to Woo Voters

Some campaigns have been temporarily halted, but the presidential election fight goes on in other ways. In order to make an impression on voters the political camps are using colors, which not only bring joy to the eyes, but sometimes speak louder than words.

Orange, blue, yellow, red and white are the colors of this year's presidential race. Each holds a message all its own.

Chung Dong-young with the United New Democrats goes hand-in-hand with the color orange, which connotes warmth and ties into his ''happy family'' campaign theme.

It's perhaps not surprising that Lee Myung-bak has colored his campaign blue. Blue happens to be the color of his Grand National Party. Lee pledges to revive the economy and give hope to the people.
