Retired UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon returned to South Korea today as momentum builds around his possible run in elections to succeed impeached President Park Geun-Hye.

Ban's return comes at a time of national uncertainty with tens of thousands of people marching in weekly protests demanding the permanent removal of scandal-hit Park, who was impeached by parliament last month over a corruption scandal.
