ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the origin of the inconsistency between the anti-impeachment campaign mood and the election outcome in South Korea. It highlights the problems associated with Korean regionalism. It investigates the 2004 Korean National Assembly election campaign, wherein regionalism was temporarily dominated by the presidential impeachment. It suggests that regionally identified political parties prevent the existence of democratic political contexts.
