Liberal candidate Moon Jae In will be the next president of South Korea, according to exit polls. Moon has reportedly won with 41.4 percent of the vote, with second place going to conservative Hong Joon Pyo, who had 23.3 percent, amid very high turnout. Moon campaigned on a more open dialogue with North Korea in a break from long-running South Korean policy. The early election was called after a corruption scandal that plagued the country, resulting in the impeachment of the former president.
