Assassination attempts are not a new thing in South Korea. The former South Korean president Park Chung-hee dodged two assassination attempts before he was shot and killed during a 30-men raid in 1979.
His successor, President Chun Doo-hwan, swerved death in a Northern bombing plot in 1983 due to traffic congestion but 17 South Koreans, including cabinet ministers, were killed.
