ABSTRACT
The article presents a political outlook for South Korea in 2007. As of January 2007, South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun continues to face a low popularity rating and stiff political opposition. It is unlikely that the ruling Uri party will retain the presidency in 2007. Policymaking will remain limited in the run up to the December 2007 election.
