South Korea elects first female president, daughter of ex-dictator
Really a challenging job. Think about S. Korea is surrounded by Russia, N. Korea, China and Japan plus the US military bases.
Among her 10 precedessors
* 1 president was overthrown by coup d' etat ( led by her father)
* 3 imprisoned
* 1 assassinated (her father)
* 3's sons or brother were prosecuted for "bribery"
* 1 committed suicide for "embezzlement" charge
Her father Park Chung-Hee was a military dictator ruling S. Korea for 18 years after a coup, and was assassinated by the director of the KCIA (Korean Central Intelligence Agency). What a karma?! :shocked:
