Last night in the streets of Seoul, demonstrators demanding the ouster of their President while riot police in full gear prepare to dissolve the event.

Protests seem to be a very natural part of daily life in Korea. Koreans kept doing their shopping and enjoying their time out in this very commercial district of Seoul, while warnings from the police and hymns from the protesters blasted from loudspeakers. Although a clash seemed inevitable, at the end everyone left peacefully as if nothing had happened.
