Seoul residents lined up to pay tribute to deceased Mayor Park Won-soon in a civic funeral service in front of the city hall. Park, 64, was seen as a contender to be South Korea’s next president until he died by suicide on Thursday, a day after he was accused of sexual harassment.
As a former human rights lawyer, Park led two of South Korea’s most influential civic groups as well as serving as mayor of Seoul, the South Korean capital city with a population of 10 million people, since 2011. He was widely considered a leading liberal presidential candidate when his political ally and current President Moon Jae-in’s single five-year term ends in 2022.
