Two people perished during street clashes in Seoul, as activists are enraged with impeachment of President Park Geun-hye. The protests began on March 9, immediately after the Consitutional Court removed the official from her office under charges with corruption.

In October 2016, reporters found out that Park Geun-hye abused authority and allowed misconduct by letting her close friend manage funds from the state budget and edit important documents, which contain classified information.
