A thoughtful examination of the events surrounding the Choi Soon-Sil/Park Geun-Hye scandal is available here. Two very positive outcomes resulting from this unseemly affair are the political awakening of South Korean teenagers, and the validation of peaceful demonstrations occurring nationwide. Hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of protesters have effected substantive change to a status quo oftentimes characterized by lack of accountability for powerful elites. Choi’s arrest preceded President Park’s impeachment, but both women continue to flatly deny accusations of pervasive collusion and corruption following tearful apologies to citizens.
