In this photo taken Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012, ruling Saenuri Party presidential candidate Park Geun-hye, right, talks with South Korean business leaders during a financial strategy forum in Seoul, South Korea. Park attempts to become the country's first female president and keep the government in conservative hands in the Dec. 19 election. She has been in the public eye longer than either of her rivals and is a skilled political operator, but she is also hounded by her late father Park Chung-hee's complicated legacy, which continues to divide many South Koreans.
