After South Korea's President Park Geun-Hye was removed from office after her constitutional impeachment over a corruption scandal Friday morning, two South Korean protesters died later in the day during the massive protests that took place conducted by the president's supporters in central Seoul, local police confirmed.

"We confirm that two protesters against upholding impeachment have died," Lim Jae Beom, an officer at the public relations office of Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency told CNBC News.

During the ruling earlier in the day both critics and supporters of the Park gathered in front of the South Korean Constitutional Court, where around 20,000 police forces were deployed because they speculated there would be violent confrontation among groups after the ruling.

After the decision was heard by the public a group comprising of more than hundred people, who were supporters of the president tried to get inside the court even when police forces tried to stop them. Many of them fell and got injured. "We lost our liberty. We lost our Korea," one protestor told CNN's Paula Hancocks live on air. "We cannot understand impeachment for our president. She is still our president, tomorrow she will be our president," another supporter said.

Soon after the announcement the critics were happy and pumped their fists in celebration and also the whole crowd was heard applauding.

According to CNN, a statement from acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn called for unity. "We all need to respect the decision of the constitutional court. There will be people who cannot accept this and find it hard to submit to this, but now is the time to accept and end the conflict and opposition."

After Park's impeachment, she became first ever president to be impeached successfully before the end of her tenure, after dictatorship was overthrown and democracy was embraced in South Korea in the 1980s. After this, Park also lost her immunity as president and is now liable to prosecution and can be questioned by the authorities anytime.

A government official also told CNN that an election for a new president will be held within a time span of 60 days and an adhoc cabinet meeting will also be held in the upcoming days.
