President Park


Congratulations to President Park, the first woman to lead South Korea! Here she is with her father who seized power in the country in a coup d'etat in 1961 and was assassinated by his Head of Intelligence in 1979. Her mother was also assassinated, by Norks (North Koreans) in 1974 so Park Geun Hye had to step into the breach as First Lady when she was 22.

I like Norks. It ranks up there with Gooks, Dorks and Bjork

With a family history like that I'd have given up politics and gone jet skiing.

Greetings KL!

LOL Angus. She's unmarried so perhaps she didn't want to inflict any angst on her children.
