South Koreans head to the polls to choose a new president Tuesday amid concerns about the economy, corruption and their relationship with North Korea.

Axar.az reports citing to CNN the hasty election comes after Park Geun-hye, the country's first female president, was impeached in a corruption scandal that allegedly connected her to business giants Samsung and the Lotte Group.

Many voters say they're angry at Park -- once known as the "people's princess" -- and are ready for transparency.
"The electorate wants to punish the whole party for the misrule of the Park era," said John Delury, a professor at Yonsei University.

The Democratic Party's Moon Jae-in, who ran against Park and lost in 2012, is seen as a "clean" candidate and has led most polls ahead of the vote.
