Staying with the politics, a major reshuffle at the nation's parliament.
For the first time in three years, conservative lawmakers have joined forces to create a new unified party as they bid to win the upcoming general election in mid-April.
The new conservative bloc the United Future Party, brings together lawmakers from the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, the New Conservative Party, and the Onward for Future 4.0.
The new party is made up of 1-hundred-15 lawmakers in the 295-member parliament, making it second only to the ruling Democratic Party, which has one-hundred-29 seats.
Separately 21 lawmakers from minor opposition parties also decided on Monday to create a joint parliamentary negotiating bloc.
They are expected to join forces ahead of the election and create another merger party that will be the third biggest in the assembly.
