First South Korean in space to be woman after late personnel change

Abstract:
South Korea on Monday changed its first citizen to be sent into space less than a month before the takeoff, replacing the man it had originally selected with a woman on a Russian request.

Nanotechnology engineer Yi So Yeon, 29, is to now fly in a Russian Soyuz capsule to the International Space Station in early April after Russian space officials asked for the original South Korean candidate, Ko San, be replaced after he violated training regulations, South Korea's Education, Science and Technology Ministry said.
