For 18 years, Park Geun-hye stayed mostly out of the public eye. However, in December of 1997, she joined the Grand National Party. The following year, she was elected to the National Assembly, launching her political career in earnest. In the 17th and 19th general elections, Park led her party to victory, earning herself the title 'queen of elections.' Fifteen years after entering politics, she became Korea's first female president, vowing to open an era of happiness for the people. However, her unexpected downfall stemmed from a corruption scandal, which led to her impeachment and now an impending criminal trial.
On this week's show, we look back on the tumultuous life of former president Park Geun-hye.
