A scandal brewing in South Korea exposes the alleged influence of a strange religious sect:

Quote:

"Choi, who created his own breed of religion that combined Christianity, Buddhism, and Shamanism, claimed to have power to communicate with the dead"

Now it isn't the first time government had a close relationship with such a religious movement, as the Unification Church was/is also a powerful and influential force.

Things have really degenerated for President Park who has offered to resign if the National Assembly agrees for her to do so.  Some see this as a sign that the embattled President is giving up, others as a shrewd move as she doesn't believe the fractuous legislature will be able to agree on the terms for her departure.

Hundreds of thousands of people have poured into the streets to demand that President Park resign.
