http://www.alrin.co.kr/5842 - translate this to English, well...

This guy is just bizarre. He's run twice before, in 1997 and 2007. His last presidential bid attracted attention for his insane claims: boasting an IQ of 430, generous marriage and baby bonuses, abolish multiparty democracy, and moving UN headquarters to the DMZ. He also doctored a photo of him with Bush, and claimed Park Geun-Hye (Park Chung Hee's daughter and front-running candidate this year) was going to marry him! He was jailed for one of those claims, after which he also became a rap musician. Some of his claims here and here.

It appears that his plans in this campaign, from the translation, is to make himself the emperor that reunites the peninsula, and extend his power over Asia and the world.

Eccentric is an understatement. Is it because people find politics "boring" that such things have appeal? I doubt in the US though that such a candidate could ever get near the ballot.

Oh, we have enough weird ones on the ballots...

Besides all the 'minor parties', we have ones that managed to win the popular vote who claimed to have 'taken the initiative in creating the internet', of course he later said "The day I made that statement, I was tired because I had been up all night inventing the Camcorder.".

Well you've got eccentric, bizarre and scary candidates running in primaries, sometimes with respectable results. The LaRouche Mouvement poses as Democrats, the party refusing to award LaRouche delegates or back any victorious LaRoucheist candidates, like Kesha Rogers capturing the nomination for a congessional seat in Texas, while they have a State Senator in Kentucky. Similarly, Randall Terry's success in Oklahoma raised a few eyebrows, and a few pro-Terry candidates are running in Democratic primaries, one of them (Angela Michael in Illinois) being the only Democrat in her district so she might have chance of getting in. Once more, you had a few eyebrows raised at a controversial Republican primary winner in Tennessee a some years back, and a pro-Nazi Holocaust denier doing well in a GOP primary in Illinois, yet the Nuwaubian cult has also tried to run as Republicans!

-If the President himself, "the opening two months of the current parliamentary system for getting rid of their clothes after stripping both parties as an independent candidate to run for election to parliament," he was a rant.

Well, that would certainly make Parliament more interesting.
