South Korea's upcoming presidential election is now set to become a two-way contest, with the two liberal hopefuls announcing their decision to pick a single candidate to run against the ruling party.

The agreement between the opposition Democratic United Party's Moon Jae In and the independent candidate Ahn Cheol Soo has renewed public interest in the poll.

Until now, the candidate of the conservative ruling party, Park Guen Hye was seen as the leading contender.
