Two days after South Korea's top court ousted Park Geun-hye from the presidency, the 64-year-old left the official residence of the country's head of state for the last time. Some 900 of her supporters showed up out front of the so-called Blue House to say their farewells.
At the same time anti-Park protesters were celebrating along the Gwanghwamun Plaza in central Seoul, the same location where they have protested against her since October of last year. In fact the day after Park was removed half a million Koreans gathered at the plaza to celebrate the news of the court's judgement.
This coming Saturday may see another huge parade in Seoul and among them will be thousands of Catholics who have been probably the most persistent in voicing their opposition of the impeached president.
