[포토] Gwangju’s tears… Old May 18 Cemetery in Mangwol-dong

On the afternoon of the 23rd, when Chun Doo-hwan, who led the 12/12 military uprising and bloody suppression of the May 18 Gwangju Democratization Movement, died, raindrops fell on the monument of Park Hyun-suk at the old May 18 cemetery in Mangwol-dong, Buk-gu, Gwangju. At that time, Park, who was in the third year of the Shinui Yeosang (currently Songwon Yeosang), volunteered to wipe the body and was killed by martial law forces indiscriminately near the village of Junam while fleeing to Hwasun with armed civilians to collect a coffin.
