기사 요약: 이재명 당선 패배로 불확실해진 민주당의 미래는?

The Democratic Party of Korea faces a perilous path ahead after the defeat of its candidate Lee Jae-myung, as possible investigations and political actions could undermine its dominant position in South Korean politics.

* Perilous: 아주 위험한
* Undermine: (권위 등을) 약화시키다

Lee's defeat signifies that voters have eventually chosen to prioritize holding the current administration to account, underscored by Yoon Suk-yeol of the conservative People Power Party over Lee's assertions that he would be able to bring about a national recovery.

* Signify: 의미하다, 나타내다
* Hold something to account: 누군가에게 책임을 묻다

* Underscore: 강조하다 
* Assertion: 주장

Although Lee's supporters emphasized strong leadership and economic recovery to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, a greater number of voters decided to back Yoon, lending their support once again for a candidate emphasizing justice and impartiality.

* Emphasize: 강조하다
* Overcome: 극복하다
* To back: 도와주다, 지지하다

Lee will have to brace for a tough few months, as the numerous allegations brought against him in the run up to the election see almost certain to be investigated.

* To brace for: ~에 대비하다
* Numerous: 많은
* Against: ~에 반대하여
