President Park Geun Hye (65) has become the first president ever in South Korean history to be impeached while in office on March 10 (KST).

She was elected to office in 2012 as the first ever female president, but became wrapped up in a series of controversial scandals dealing with confiding in her childhood friend Choi Soon Sil in national matters, bribery from businesses like Samsung, and more. 


The impeachment was ruled with a unanimous vote of 8 in favor to 0 against. By law, the country must elect a new president within 60 days. The acting president, Hwang Kyo Ahn, an ally of Park, will remain in office in the interim.

It seems that all Korean presidents come to tragic ends.

Well could of been worse; both her parent were assassinated when she was a child, SK such a lovely country if they hate you they make up rumors - if they really hate you they shoot or stab you - literally..... What a country!!

Park Chung Hee essentially had it coming, at least if you go by "그때 그사람들" ("The President's Last Bang").

jaja007 cmerle1 Saturday, March 11, 2017

I'm betting there will be civil war if Trump gets impeached.

Korea is now in a political mess... supporter and non-supporter are now clashing

Why lost most female presidents in the world their presidency by impeachment? - Peron (Argentina) - Russiv (Brasil) - Golda Meir (Israel) - Park Geun Hye (S-Korea) - Peu (Thailand)

bangeryun94 Hermes1 Saturday, March 11, 2017

Golda Meir? Really?

Tinee_Toes Friday, March 10, 2017

That's just sad. I was hoping for better. I have come to love South Korea in the last couple years. It's culture, music, nature, and even like the President. This whole world is going bad, and only going to get worse, unless people start communicating and stop hating everything, and everyone. I really like her from all I have read before the scandal with that "woman" started the road downhill for President Park.  Hope things get better.
