Rather it's the photo accompanying the New York Times story about the election of a new leader for the Korean-American Association of Greater New York. This kind of stuff is important for a relatively new immigrant community that owes its success to hard work and intense cooperation. Marmot's Hole has a discussion of the whole thing; in particular, Wangkon has a good explanation as to why this kind of thing is still important, and Oranckay explains why this kind of thing draws Korean-American immigrants.
The sashes really do look like what you'd typically find in local politicking in Korea.
