We’ve now reached some sort of bizarro future where Activision Blizzard now dominates the political landscape of South Korea. I mean, seriously! Why does this country love this company so much?

One politician has already been spotted using StarCraft to ship out free user-generated maps containing his political ideology, and today, we have a story of another politician using Overwatch.

I’d vote for that.
