SEOUL -- Park Geun-hye may have nearly two years left in office, but whether those will be triumphant or tedious for the South Korean president depends largely on how voters cast their ballots on April 13.

     If the general election sees her ruling Saenuri Party secure a majority in the National Assembly, which would likely cause the ranks of the conservative party's pro-Park faction to expand, the administration is expected to continue with -- and probably strengthen -- its hard-line political approach, as exemplified by its stern stance toward North Korea.
