Korea held presidential elections today. Voters decided between the conservative Saenuri Party's Park Geun-hye and the left-leaning Moon Jae-in of the Democratic United Party, with Park winning the election late this morning. This makes Park Korea's first female president. Bruce Cumings, a history professor at University of Chicago and author of The Korean War: A History, joins us to discuss the race.
