Departure of Park Geun-hye
Since Autumn 2016, a wave of political discontent engulfed South Korea, as the public discovered that the President Park Geun-hye was being controlled by one of her aides. Millions of people took part in demonstrations against her in Seoul and her popularity dipped as low as 4%. She was replaced on 10 March 2017.
In June 2015, acting South Korean Prime Minister Choi Kyung-hwan announced that the government would use cell phone signals to track people if it has quarantined them for possible Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, asking people to "Please understand this is an unavoidable measure for the sake of our neighbors and families".
