Our top story this morning.
President Park Geun-hye is very likely to announce her much anticipated Cabinet reshuffle later this morning.
It will be the third and final part of the president's shake-up, coming after nomination of the prime minster and the appointment of her senior secretaries.
Seven ministers are expected to be replaced, including the heads of the finance, securities and education ministries.
President Park's close aide and former ruling party floor leader Choi Kyung-hwan is likely to be nominated as the nation's finance minister, who also acts as the deputy prime minister.
Officials say the cabinet reshuffle, coming before the president's trip to Central Asia next week, reflects her intent to quickly normalize government operations after the Sewol-ho ferry disaster.
