South Korean broadcaster goes ‘Game of Thrones’ with election results

This “Game of Thrones” had plenty of Seoul.

South Korean broadcaster SBS announced the outcome of the country’s presidential race by depicting the candidates as characters in the hit HBO series battling their way to victory.

Eventual winner Moon Jae-in was shown astride a fire breathing dragon and jousting in the Tourney of the Hand before taking his place on the throne as the show’s theme song plays.

Other candidates are seen flipping Braavosi coins, communing with giant animals — a la Bran Stark — and slogging through the wintery hinterlands beyond the wall.

SBS wasn’t the only network that got wacky with its wonkiness.

Moon zoomed to victory in an animated race car and knocked out his opponents in a “Street Fighter” style video game battle on rival network MBC, according to Foreign Policy.
