Ironic, a country that only became a democracy in the last 30 years is able to oust a sitting criminal president through civic participation, robust legal action, and a healthy judiciary.

What is our excuse?

South Korea has a hard time finding good presidents. Hope the next one is honest. As for Park Geun-hye, she got what she deserved. She turned out to be a poor leader of that country.

She and Abe started at pretty much the same time.

Abe has outlasted her.

Wondering if the final and Irreversible 2015 Japan-South Korea comfort women deal will completely unravel, after all media have been reporting that Moon Jae-in, will not honour the agreement.

Will he also make good on his suggestion that he would reconsider plans to withdraw THAAD if deployed. This is an opportunity for the Government of China to drive a wedge politically through the alliance. US - Japan might have to reconsider their next move.

Well, karma hurts. Her contempt for her country and almost comical levels of corruption and bizarre religious practices have been brought to light. The next head of Samsung has been arrested, so there is almost no chance she won't be arrested and convicted. Her supporters turning up in army fatigues shows everyone all they need to know about this breed trying to engineer violence. Well done to SK!

That is democracy at work, if I ever saw one. Kudos to SK.

The Korean peninsula as a whole is in one h*** of a mess. The US forces in the South are a stabilizing force. Hope the Toddler-in-Chief doesn't cause any more ruckus over there !
