Lee Hoi-chang runs for president for the third time


Surrounded by his supporters, Lee Hoi-chang, who lost in the 1997 and 2002 presidential elections as a conservative party candidate, walks on Nov. 7 into his private office in Namdaemun, Seoul, where he announces his third run to the president. "I promise you that I will bring a regime change at all costs," Lee said, talking to the press for the first time since rumors have been mounting about his surprise return. By Kim Seong-ryong

1997년과 2002년 대선에서 한나라당 후보로 패배했던 이회창 한나라당 전 총재가 지지자들에게 둘러싸인 채 11월7일 그의 세 번째 대선출마를 선언하기 위해 서울 남대문의 개인사무실로 걸어 들어가고 있다. 대선출마 소문이 나돌기 시작한 이후 처음으로 기자회견을 가진 그는 "어떤 경우에도 정권교체를 이룰 것을 약속한다"고 말했다. 김성룡 기자
