Supporters and opponents of the decision to impeach South Korean President Park Geun-hye gathered for two separate rallies in Seoul on Saturday, ahead of the Constitutional Court's decision on whether to ratify the impeachment. A police cordon kept the two sets of demonstrators apart. President Park has been the subject of severe criticism because of her close ties to a mysterious confidante named Choi Soon-sil, who edited her speeches and influenced her decisions.
