President Park is back in Korea following her trip to the UAE, arriving around three hours ago
She won't have any time to rest though as she's now expected to start the process of identifying a new prime minister and carrying out a major cabinet reshuffle.
Pundits are looking carefully at who will be the president's candidate for prime minister, with the current PM Chung Hong-won offering to resign to take responsibility for the government's lax response to the Sewol-ho ferry disaster.
Speculation is rife that an announcement on the prime minister could come as early as this week as it's already been three weeks since Chung offered to step down.
While there are calls for a sweeping cabinet shake-up, the ministers of oceans & fisheries, public administration and education, those most responsible for the handling the disaster, are most likely to face the chop.
