Lawmakers and members of opposition Justice Party with signs stand during a rally demanding the impeachment of South Korean President Park Geun-hye at the National Assembly in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016. Park aces the political fight of her life as lawmakers attempt to force her from office over prosecution claims that she helped a confidante extort money and favors from companies and manipulate state affairs. The signs read: "Impeach Park Geun-hye immediately." (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean President Park Geun-hye entered what could be her last day in power Friday, as lawmakers geared up for what's widely expected to be a successful impeachment vote amid a corruption scandal that has left her isolated and loathed.

Megumi Kondo, an employee of the Japanese traditional doll making firm Kyugetsu, displays wooden battledores with the images of US President-elect Donald Trump (R) and Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike (L) in TokyoDonald Trump only wants to make America great again, but one Japanese firm hopes that painting his face on a traditional good luck charm will make the whole planet a better place in 2017. The billionaire property magnate is among a string of celebrity faces adorning the special collection of hagoita racquets, which are designed to -- metaphorically -- smash away bad luck and evil spirits before the new year. The rectangular wooden paddles, once used in a badminton-like game called hanetsuki, are usually painted with the faces of famous actors in Japan's Kabuki opera.

South Korean President Park Geun-Hye speaks during an address to the nation, at the presidential Blue House in SeoulBy Ju-min Park and Kim Daewoung SEOUL (Reuters) - President Park Geun-hye faces an impeachment vote in parliament on Friday over an influence peddling scandal that could lead to her becoming South Korea's first democratically elected leader to be removed from office in disgrace. There have been mass rallies every Saturday for the past six weeks calling for Park to quit, and opinion polls show overwhelming public support for her impeachment. Parliament is expected to vote in favor of impeachment, with support from some members of Park's conservative Saenuri Party, according to opposition parties but the Constitutional Court must decide whether to uphold the motion, a process that could take up to 180 days.
