It has emerged that Park Geun-hye (South Korea’s first female president and daughter of the military dictator who turned the country into an industrial powerhouse), notoriously aloof even to her top aides, has been taking private counsel from Choi Soon-sil, a woman she’s known for four decades. Despite having no official position and no security clearance, Choi seems to have advised Park on everything from her wardrobe to speeches about the dream of reunification with North Korea.

Choi is the daughter of the late Choi Tae-min, who was a kind of shaman-fortune teller described in a 2007 cable from the U.S. Embassy in Seoul as “a charismatic pastor.” Locally, he’s seen as a “Korean Rasputin” who once held sway over Park after her mother was assassinated in 1974.

South Korean media have uncovered evidence that, they claim, shows that Choi Soon-sil wielded undue influence over the president.

JTBC, a television network, said it had found a tablet computer that contained files of speeches the president had yet to give, among other documents. The younger Choi is said to have edited the landmark speech that Park gave in Germany in 2014, laying out her vision for unification with the North. The Hankyoreh newspaper wrote that actual presidential aides “were just mice to Choi’s cat.”

She is also rumored to have created a secret group called “the eight fairies” to advise the president behind the scenes.

There is not nearly enough needless confusion for this to be MGS level.

I mean, there isn't even a protagonist named after a dick joke.

Seriously though it seems South Koreans are way smarter than Americans.

God talking to GW Bush about war plans is way crazier than anything from this article and that nonsense was allowed by us.

Her term expires next year anyway and her party's lost the majority. Resigning now or waiting a year wouldn't make all that much of a difference. I mean they've made it so far under cultist rule, right?
She was born in 1898 in a barn. She died on the thirty-seventh floor of a skyscraper. She's an astronaut.
