After the release of the election results on Wednesday, a still from the 2016 film “La La Land” attracted much public attention for its use of colors.
The color blue represents the Democratic Party of Moon Jae-in, while green represents the People‘s Party of Ahn Cheol-soo, red for Hong Joon-pyo of the Liberty Korea Party and yellow for Shim Sang-jung of the Justice Party.
In the photo, Mia, wearing a blue dress, walks down the road in a dignified manner while her friends, clad in green, red and yellow outfits, are bystanders.
Twitter user @nia _dukhoo expressed one’s surprise saying, “The big picture of ‘La La Land’!” Twitter user @Fenrir5231 joined the trend saying, “Looking back, ‘La La Land’ was a film which predicted the future.”
Some pointed out the absence of the representation of Yoo Seung-min of Bareun Party with @kim10000mul offering “They don‘t have light blue” -- the color which represents the party.
Twitter user @tretre_ suggested that it may become an inspiration for broadcasters for the next election coverage saying “SBS won’t use it for the next presidential/general election, will it?”
SBS, one of the three major broadcasters in Korea, has been lauded at home and abroad for parodying HBO‘s “Game of Thrones” for its election coverage.
