Mr. Shim Might Make a Good Mayor of Ansan Because He’s Got Integrity

Candidate #1 for the upcoming mayoral elections in Ansan is Jeong-Goo Shim. He's affiliated with the Grand National Party, which is the party currently in charge at the federal level. 

His sign says it all: "Integrity!" (in blue) and "The Hope of Ansan!" (in black and red). 

I like how he's clasping his hands together; makes me think he really means it. He's also got a bigger smile than Mr. Boo and his sign uses two exclamation marks!! However, his sign is only three stories high, whereas Mr. Boo's is almost five! Mr. Shim, of course, makes up for that weakness by having yet another sign on the left side of the building, too.

Well, based on these factors, it could go either way for me. I'm still undecided.
