Entertainers active on social networks (socialtainers) have been trying to get citizens to vote in their own ways, to some effect.

Some stars, however, have chosen instead to go the official way and openly pose as the faces for the act of voting.

The figures chosen as the honorary ambassadors for the National Election Commission have been doing just that.

Lee Seung Gi, Bae Hyun Jin and Kim Byung Man: Stars Who Promote Fair Voting

With the 18th Presidential Elections of Korea coming up on December 19, many stars have been chosen by the Commission to promote voting, including Lee Seung Gi, Kim Byung Man, Sumi Jo, Bae Hyun Jin, Cho Soo Bin and anchor Park Sun Young.

They have been appearing in campaigns for the National Election Commission in order to promote fair elections and the act of voting.

They′ve also shown the public how to vote, what pledges the Presidential candidates have made and what important dates need to be noted in the process.

Lee Seung Gi has especially been busy as the Commission′s main model, following his appointment as the online honorary ambassador for clean elections across the internet in October.

In an interview with the National Election Commission, anchor Bae Hyun Jin said, "It was meaningful to be appointed honorary ambassador for clean elections, which are very important for social and public interests. My family and relatives were happy to see my face on posters promoting voting, and I also was very proud."
