South Koreans are currently going through a politically tumultuous time. For some time they have been demanding President Park Geun-Hye step down while attempting to start a brand new chapter of their history.
The darkness and distress since Park came to power in 2013 has worsened since the political crisis that broke out in mid-October. In a televised address on Nov. 29, Park said she is now permitting the National Assembly to decide upon her fate in a gesture that could see her soon out of office.
