Carlos Santamaria: What are a few ways you think the US election might impact South Korea?
WJY: Not only the South Korean government, but most people in South Korea view the US election this time through mainly three issues. First is how a Trump second term or a new Biden administration will approach North Korea. Second, how each would approach the alliance issue. And third, how the new US government would approach US-China relations, because that will affect South Korea's geopolitical position in the next four years.
Those three areas could be affected by the result of the election in November. That is why South Korea has a very keen interest in the outcome.
