Gangnam Style Performance By Psy At Park Geun-hye Inaugurated as South Korean President

Park Geun-hye was officially inaugurated yesterday, becoming Seoul’s first female president, elected on a platform of ‘economic democratisation’ and the promise to improve North-South relations.
Park came under a lot of fire from netizens during her election campaign after unconfirmed rumours that she used an iPad during a televised debate and encouraged a South Korean spy agency to influence the presidential election.
She was also unable to shake the ‘daughter of a dictator‘ image that has followed her career, despite apologising for her father’s crimes.
Nevertheless, Park won a tightly-contested election, and started her five-year term yesterday. In her inauguration speech, she called on North Korea to abandon its nuclear capabilities, and has already put the ROK military on high alert in one of her first moves as Commander-in-chief.
PSY, whom some might now consider to be South Korea’s more prominent but bizarre cultural president, performed Gangnam Style at the inauguration ceremony.
