[The Chosun Ilbo, December 7 2007] Candidates Use TV Debate to Slam Front-Runner

Korea's presidential candidates faced each other in their first televised debate on Thursday. Sponsored by the National Election Commission and held at a KBS studio in Yeouido, Seoul, the debate brought together Lee Myung-bak of the Grand National Party, Chung Dong-young of the Untied New Democratic Party, Rhee In-je of the Democratic Party, Kwon Young-ghil of the Democratic Labor Party, Moon Kook-hyun of the Creative Korea Party and independent Lee Hoi-chang. Veering from the topics of politics, unification, security and foreign policies, most of the candidates focused on attacking the GNP candidate.
