The political reaction was markedly different from when Roh Tae-woo passed away last month. The presidential candidates of each party expressed their intention not to pay tribute, and the Blue House and the Democratic Party decided not to send any harmony.

At the funeral hall of Severance Hospital in Sinchon, where the burial place of Mr. Jeon was built, the bereaved family, Sun-ja Lee, and the former chief of the security department, Jang Se-dong, stayed until late at night.

Justice Party candidate Shim Sang-jung said, “Even death without reflection is guilty.”
