The development of the Labor Party will depend on whether politics evolve toward democratic deepening or neo-populism.  The rise of the Labor Party was a political event that resulted from a prevailing current of democratic deepening.  It was also a political event born of collective action on the part of civil society organizations and labor in the course of electoral reform.  However, if the political regime does evolve in favor of neo-populism, the political conditions that would enable the Labor Party's sustainable development will be radically eroded. The prospects for the Labor Party in Korea might be regarded skeptically in political as well as economic respects.
