What is going on with South Korea and the president? I saw someone mention KPop and what not here, so maybe they can enlighten me. I have spent the last few dozen minutes just digging and trying to find out what is going on, but it just seems so surreal and weird that I can't really tell if I am being had, or if it really is real.
This is weirder than the whole Brexit and Trump thing.
The best source I found was from this website:
>But not with Park Geun-hye. Her corruption was not self-interested at all. If anything, her corruption was self-sacrificing in favor of Choi Soon-sil. Among the numerous revelations, I personally found this the most pathetic: Park Geun-hye gave Choi a sizable budget to purchase the presidential wardrobe, and Choi embezzled most of it. Instead of purchasing the clothes that befitted a head of state, Choi outfitted Park Geun-hye with crappy clothes that she had her cronies made with subpar material. There is a video of Choi's staff smoking and drinking while eating fried chicken, right next to the suit meant for Park Geun-hye. At one point, one of the staff members handled the suit without even wiping chicken grease from his hands, while breathing smoke onto the clothes. Park Geun-hye would wear this suit on her presidential visit with Xi Jinping. For accessories, Choi gave Park the cheap leather purses and clutches that her gigolo designed. This could not have possibly escaped Park's notice. Even assuming the unlikely possibility Park Geun-hye might not have had the discernment to know firsthand (unlikely because she grew up in the lap of luxury,) the obvious cheapness of Park's clothes and bags even made the news. Yet nothing came of it. Choi Soon-sil dressed Park Geun-hye liked an unwanted doll, and Park, the president of the country, did not care.
So far, I think this is how things have/is happened/happening: The president's parents got assassinated and she was brought up and brainwashed by a guy who used to be a Buddhist, who then became a Christian, who could speak to dead people. He told her he could speak to her mum. That weirdo had a daughter who can also speak to the dead, and she basically runs Korea from the shadows because the president is her puppet (because brain-washing? I don't know).
People found out about the whole thing because the president's puppet master left her tablet behind when she was leaving Korea for Germany, and whoever found it basically saw that the puppet master was correcting the president's speeches, dressing her, etc.
All sounds weird. Maybe having a dear leader and cults is a Korean thing. I wonder what the North Koreans think of this.
