Recently it has come to light that the president of S.Korea, Park Geun hye, was actually being controlled by a shady group of 8 powerful women, one of which is an actual shaman/pseudo-religious figure named Choi Soon sil.
Now the only thing that's been officially confirmed was that one of those 8 people, namely the shaman, has been influencing the presidents speeches. But further investigation by the media has revealed that she not only received access to national top secret files, bureaucratic positions, etc, but was making decisions herself and even telling the president what to wear and say.
Now you might think this kind of shit happens everywhere, but I'm not done yet.
The current president Park Geun hye is actually the daughter of the former dictator of Korea, who rose to power in a military coup d'état. After him and his wife's assassination, Park started to rely on this man called Choi Tae min, who was the founder of this pseudo-religion, a combination of buddhism/christian/shamanism/whatever. He allegedly claimed that he was the reincarnation of her mother, and that she could speak to her dead mother through him. According to various sources he was supposedly "dominating Park's soul and body".
Fast forward 40 years, Choi Tae min's 5th daughter(btw had has 6 wives), the aforementioned Choi Soon-sil, now rules over S.Korea with 7 unconfirmed others and has 2 nonprofit foundations with millions of won in donations. Unfortunately her current whereabouts are unknown except for the fact that she's hiding somewhere in Germany.https://web.archive.org/web/20161028010350/http://english.hani.co.kr/arti/english_edition/e_national/767405.htmlhttps://web.archive.org/web/20161027125923/http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/national/2016/10/25/5/0301000000AEN20161025008553315F.html
