    On today's episode of Loud & Clear Brian is joined for the full hour today to by activist Will Griffin, Korea Policy Institute fellow Simone Chun, and writer Bruce Gagnon.

    South Korea holds its first presidential election since the impeachment of conservative Park Geun-hye tomorrow. Who are the candidates and what are they saying about peace on the Korean peninsula? Will any of them aim to forge a more diplomatic relationship with the North? And as the US THAAD missile system is deployed, what are the candidates saying about the South Korean relationship with the United States? This election will have profound consequences for Korea, the region and the whole world.
