Five things to know about South Korea's general election

Moon's Democrats lead in polls, but many voters are still undecided

SEOUL -- South Koreans will cast their ballots in a general election on Wednesday, choosing the 300 lawmakers who will serve in the National Assembly for the next four years.

President Moon Jae-in's left-leaning Democratic Party leads in the opinion polls, partly due to positive views of his government's handling of the new coronavirus pandemic. But the main conservative opposition, the United Future Party, is looking to narrow the gap by focusing on the weak economy and corruption scandals involving some of Moon's aides.
