The US Embassy in South Korea said Thursday that it will hold an event next week where its officials and experts along with local college students can enjoy a live broadcast of the presidential election and the ensuing vote count together.

In time for the US presidential election slated for Tuesday (local time), the 2016 US Election Watch event will be held in a hotel in central Seoul on Wednesday, according to the embassy.

The event will be attended by US Amb. Mark Lippert and political experts who will exchange their analysis and projections related to the election. Local college and graduate students will also be invited to join the gathering.

The embassy held similar election-related events in 2008 and 2012. (Yonhap)
