Celebrities are rallying behind family members who are running for office in this month's general elections.

Candidates include former actress and Saenuri Party lawmaker Kim Eul-dong and her fellow lawmaker Ji Sang-wook.

Kim's son is actor Song Il-gook, whose triplets rose to fame after appearing on a TV show, while Ji's wife is former actress Shim Eun-ha.

The candidates pictured their celebrity son and wife in their campaign posters. Song and Shim plan to appear on the stump at some point.

Lee Jae-young, who is running for the Saenuri Party in eastern Seoul, is the husband of versatile TV personality Park Jung-sook. Park was among the cast of the hit costume drama "Dae Jang Geum" and is appearing at rallies in hanbok or traditional Korean dress.

And Saenuri Party candidate Kim  Sang-min's wife is former KBS announcer Kim Kyung-ran. She appeared on the stump with him on Thursday.

The Minjoo Party is also being sprinkled with some stardust. Candidate Sohn Hye-won's niece is actress Son Seung-woo, who appeared in the soaps "Gu Family Book" and "Sweet, Savage Family".

Minjoo Party lawmaker Moon Hee-sang is getting a campaign boost from his niece, former Miss Korea and actress Lee Honey. Lee also went on the stump with her uncle in the 2012 and 2008 general elections.

And actress Yoon Se-in is the daughter of Minjoo Party candidate Kim Boo-kyum, who is running in Daegu. Yoon campaigned for her father in the 2012 general elections but cannot do it this time since she just had a baby.
