President Park Geun-hye paid her last respects to Park Young-ok, her cousin and the wife of former Prime Minister Kim Jong-pil, who died last Saturday aged 86.
Park arrived at the funeral hall at the Asan Medical Center in Seoul at 4:30 p.m. where she laid white chrysanthemums on a memorial altar, burned incense and paid a silent tribute.
She then spent 10 minutes in conversation with Kim and his eldest daughter Ye-ri.
Park Young-ok was the eldest daughter of Park Sang-hee, one of four older brothers of the president's father, strongman Park Chung-hee.
