Korea: Protests!

The impeachment proceedings for President Park Geun-hye were ongoing. There were protests both pro and against.

One of the marches by those against the impeachment went on for over an hour, and passed right by the hotel. I'm not quite sure why it featured a huge United States flag.

There was some speculation that many of these anti-impeachment protestors were paid.

The anti-impeachment forces also had a tent city out by City Hall, and staged a rally out in front of Deoksugung Palace.

There was also a candlelight vigil in Gwanghwamun Square by those who are pro-impeachment, but I wasn't there to witness that.
