Park makes rare public appearance amid scandal
SEOUL, Dec 01 (AP): South Korea's president has visited a rural market in her first public appearance out among her citizens since a huge political scandal exploded in October.
Park Geun-hye's visit to the market in the southeastern city of Daeju on Thursday comes as her opponents are squabbling over whether and when to impeach her after she made a conditional resignation offer this week.
The visits was also made just before police detained a man suspected of setting fire to the birthplace of Park's late dictator father in the nearby city of Gumi.
