    South Korea appears to be witnessing the tail end of President Park Geun-hyes personalised presidential power. Over the past few weeks the nation has been transfixed by a series of revelations over the influence Parks friend, Choi Soon-sil, has exercised over presidential decision-making, from speeches to various state affairs, despite holding no official government position. Hundreds of thousands of angry protesters have taken to the streets to demand her resignation or impeachment, but Park appears determined to stay in office until the end of her single five-year term in February 2018.
