President uses scent to engage voters

A team of supporters of [the now successful] presidential frontrunner Lee Myung-bak has been secretly spraying a perfume called “Great Korea” at his rallies.

Volunteers were also present at voting booths  to ensure the same scent drifted through the air.

“It will remind people of the identity of Lee Myung-bak. The concept of the perfume is hope, victory and passion,” said Oh Chi-woo of the conservative Grand National Party’s culture and arts team.

“They’ll just smell it today. But when they cast their votes, they’ll remember,” he said in the central town of Jecheon, standing by an open vegetable market where any smell from mounds of garlic and onions was drowned out by the slightly cloying scent of “Great Korea.”
