The South Korean government called for calm Friday ahead of a mass rally against President Park Geun-Hye -- expected to be one of the largest seen in Seoul since the pro-democracy protests of the 1980s.Most experts believe Park, who has just over a year left of her single five-year term, will be able to ride out the crisis and remain in office, albeit with her authority and ability to govern seriously undermined.Opposition parties have, so far, avoided direct calls for her to resign and appear more interested in extracting more concessions from Park in terms of power-sharing with the legislature.Lurid reports of the unhealthy influence Choi wielded over Park have sent the president's approval ratings plunging to record lows.
