Park Geun-hye is the eleventh and current President of South Korea. She is the first woman to be elected as President in South Korea, and is serving the 18th presidential term. She also is the first woman head of state in modern history of Northeast Asia.
Prior to her presidency, she was the chairwoman of the conservative Grand National Party (GNP) between 2004 and 2006 and between 2011 and 2012 (the GNP changed its name to "Saenuri Party" in February 2012). Park was also a member of the Korean National Assembly, and had served four consecutive parliamentary terms as a constituency representative between 1998 and 2012; starting her fifth term as a proportional representative from June 2012. Her father was Park Chung-hee, President of South Korea from 1963 to 1979. She is generally considered to be one of the most influential politicians in South Korea since the presidencies of the two Kims: Kim Young-sam and Kim Dae-jung.

She was named the world's 52nd most powerful person by Forbes Magazine's List of The World's Most Powerful People, the fourth highest among Koreans after Ban Ki-moon, Lee Kun-hee and Kim Jong-un.
