(AP) - SEOUL MATES: The liberal son of North Korean refugees faces the conservative daughter of a late dictator in South Korea's presidential election Wednesday. Despite their differences, they've made remarkably similar campaign promises.

HE SAID, SHE SAID: Moon Jae-in and Park Geun-hye, who hopes to become South Korea's first woman president, want to extend a hand to North Korea, fight widespread government corruption, strengthen social welfare and help small companies. They differ mainly in how far they want to go.

VOTERS STUMPED? Polls showed the candidates in a dead heat ahead of elections to lead Asia's fourth-largest economy.
