Let's start with President Park's first-ever press conference since taking office almost one year ago
Officials say the president later on this Monday morning will lay out her plans for state affairs this year and take questions from reporters on a range of issues.
President Park has been criticized for her perceived detachment from the people for not communicating her policies directly to the media.
The president's plans for the new year are believed to center on revitalizing the economy, bolstering national security and reforming public enterprises.
The 70-minute press conference will be broadcast live on Arirang TV from 10 a.m., Korea time.
