South Korean political crisis

Huge crowds are calling for the resignation of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye. Popular discontent has shaken the country with tens of thousands taking to the streets last Saturday to demand she step down.

It’s an image of mass disenchantment we have seen in the UK with Brexit and the US with Trump – different countries linked by a frustration at the political and economic situation.

Reporter Rochelle Kirkham takes a look at South Korea’s political crisis.

First aired on SYN 90.7FM from 4.30pm on Tuesday November 15,, 2016.
