Strange story out of South Korea

I had no idea about President Park's past history until I read some stories this morning. But it goes something like this (and please correct me if I'm wrong, Korean experts). Park's father was the president of South Korea in the 1960s. Park's mother was assassinated and Park became First Lady. During that time, a shaman/cult leader named Choi pretended to channel Park's dead mother and had great influence over Park.

Fast forward to the present, and Park is president. She is close to Choi's daughter, who apparently received copies of presidential briefings, advised Park with respect to speeches and policies, and used her connection to Park to get large corporations to donate millions to Choi's "charities".

A good summary is here.

That's a fancy building Choi lives in. Check out her neighbors' cars!
