South Korea's ruling Saenuri Party's presidential candidate Park Geun-Hye (C) dances with election campaigners of the party during her campaign in Seoul December 7, 2012. Conservative and right wing Park is the daughter of late South Korean military dictator Park Chung-hee who took power in a military coup in 1961 and ruled until his assassination in 1979. If Park Geun-hye wins South Korea's presidential election on December 19 as now looks increasingly likely she will become the first woman to hold the country's top office, challenging stereotypes in a nation that is largely run by men in blue suits.
