In Democratization and Dangers of War, Mansfield and Snyer argue that transition to democracy is a rocky phase. The country becomes much more aggressive, war-prone, and twice as more likely to create an authoritative regime. Such transitional phase can be seen in Korea during their transitional phase into democracy.
Roh Tae Woo was the first president from a clean election in Korea. What seemed to be an optimistic start, ended in disappointment. Despite the democratic reforms Roh Tae Woo took on, he is most notable for corruption and involvement in the Gwangju Massacre.

What happens during the leap to democracy is that interest groups take the political systems by corruption, and there is no real accountability in elections.

Brady and Mo note that the electoral system is set up “ where the dominant party bargains with other parties” on how it will be established. This party tries to maximize their seats, which will ensure that they will win the election.

East asian developmental dictatorship would eventually transition into a more liberal form of government. It eventually happened. South korea and Taiwan developed a state capitalist model. Wealth created increase in middle class and those people pushed for transition into the western style of liberal democracy. This was a transition that was accompanied by a lot of corruption.
Democratization-dangers of war: partial democracies being more war- prone than less war-prone. They become more aggressive and are like to go to war more frequently than any other form of government especially the states that made the biggest lead to democratization. You’re twice more likely to create authoritative regimes. Domestic competition is the cause. Immature democratization is more likely to be taken by barrow interest groups that are not constrained by institutions of liberalism. There is no real accountability to electoral.
