South Korea is looking both ahead and behind after a groundbreaking presidential election.
A woman has been chosen to lead... In a male dominated society...
And she's no stranger to presidential politics.
Park Geun-Hye served as first lady in the 1970's after her mother was murdered.
In one of her first public appearances since the election, she visited her father's gravesite.
He was a dictator who helped build the country into an economic powerhouse after the Korean war.
