Moon Jae-in wins South Korea's presidential election, vows to unify bruised country "He wrote in a book published in January South Korea should learn to say "no to America", and believes better inter-Korean relations are the best way to provide security.
His election could also complicate the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system, which the former government in Seoul and the US military agreed to last year.
Mr Moon has said the decision was made too quickly and the next administration should have the final say on whether to deploy the system."
Check also the report in NYTimes. On the whole, a positive development in my opinion.
