South Koreans have voted and former human rights attorney Moon Jae-in is the country’s next leader. So, what can we expect from the new president?
Moon won the country’s elections with more than 40 percent of the vote and took office just a day later. He takes the helm of a country wrestling with economic woes and tension with neighboring DPRK.
CGTN’s Jack Barton reports from Seoul.
