Drawing on evidence from the Philippines, this paper investigates the so-called penal populism thesis. Penal populism refers to an understanding of justice in which criminal and anti-social activity should be harshly punished. The paper tests whether support for harsh penal policies, including the use of extrajudicial killings, is associated with underlying populist attitudes and preferences for charismatic leadership. Since coming to power in 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte has waged a violent and highly popular campaign against drug-related criminality. Based on survey modules fielded in 2016 and 2017, the paper demonstrates a positive relationship between populist attitudes and support for the campaign against illegal drugs in general and the extra-judicial killing of suspected drug users and dealers in particular. It also demonstrates a relationship between belief in the charisma of Duterte and support for the campaign against illegal dmgs. The implications of the theory and results for the fields of populism and penal populism research are discussed. Keywords populism, criminal justice, war on drugs, penal policy, charisma

I. Introduction Presidential agenda (Gukjeong gwaje in Korean), defined as "a signal that indicates what the president believes to be the most important issues facing his administration (Light 1999, 2)," [...] This study compares the presidential agendas of the four recent Korean governments of Kim Dae-jung (1998-2003), Roh Moo-hyun (2003-08), Lee Myung-bak (2008-13), and Park Geun-hye (2013-17). After a theoretical overview of the three factors affecting the formation of the presidential agenda (i.e., party ideology, presidential leadership, and social environment) this paper reviews the details of the presidential agendas of each administration and discusses them in the light of the three factors. In the last section, we reflect on the presidential agenda of the current Moon Jae-in administration (2017-present), point out the change and continuity in the presidential agenda system, and make a few remarks on the future of the presidential agenda system in Korea. Key Words: South Korea, presidential agenda, administration, governance, policymaking
