SBS took their election broadcast to an epic level.

The presidential election took place on May 9. Numerous broadcasting stations canceled variety shows and dramas but this did not mean boring hours of election results for SBS. The broadcasting station decided to lighten things up and took on a 'Game of Thrones' parody.

The presidential candidates turned into warriors in armors who rode horses and literally battled for the victory. 

SBS' brilliant idea also had a drastic impact on its viewer ratings. Out of the top 3 major broadcasting stations (SBS, MBC, KBS), SBS recorded the highest ratings with 7.49% while KBS1 came in second with 6.96% and MBC in third with 5.15%. 

Not only Koreans but viewers around the globe expressed amazement at SBS' unique idea, and commented, "This is insane lol", "Lol daebak", "Were they on drugs? lolol"

When you play the Game of Thrones you win or you die. There's no middle ground. OMO we can guess what will happen with some of the candidates

Well, let's say that it wasn't all serious during the presidential election in South Korea because while the other major television stations in South Korea shelved their shows just for the presidential election, SBS has decided to make their own election coverage a whole lot more entertaining by delivering the South Korean election results in the style of HBO's hit show, "Game Of Thrones".  And I really have to say that they sure did it quite very well indeed.  And I am sure that it had put lots of smiles on everyone's faces for next week as their usual TV shows start back up after the election, to which Moon Jae In won it.
