    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:
