Why he might be annoying:

    He was expelled from college.
    When he was chief of staff to President Roh Moo-hyun, he was called 'Shadow of Roh.'
    He ran against Park Geun-hyein in the 2012 presidential election but lost - he then won the snap election following his impeachment.
    His tenure as President has seen a mixed response to his economic policy (the country has seen record unemployment and joblessness).
    He is nicknamed 'the Dark King' after the Silvers Rayleigh character from the 'One Piece' Manga series.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was born to North Korean parents who fled the country during the Korean War.
    He was arrested for participating in student demonstrations against the Chung-hee dictatorship.
    He is committed to thawing the North-South Korean relations and initiated landmark summits between the two countries.
    He made history by shaking hands with Kim Jong-Un, who then crossed over the DMZ border (the first time for a North Korean leader since before the war).
    At the same summit, the two leaders signed a joint declaration that called for 'complete denuclearization [and] a nuclear-free Korean peninsula.'
    He has prioritized renewable energy and reducing the country's reliance on coal and nuclear power.
    Although progressive and pro-peace, he said: 'I am a believer in dialogue, but I also know that dialogue is possible when we have a strong national defense.'
