With the death of Chun Doo-hwan, many people worry that the truth of Gwangju will be buried forever.
Even through two prosecution investigations and three trials, no evidence could be found that the commander of the firing was Chun Doo-hwan, but it is common sense to infer what kind of influence his words, who was the supreme authority of the new military at the time, had on the suppression of the martial law forces in the process of the Gwangju democratization movement.

Although Chun Doo-hwan passed away, the effort to find the truth about Gwangju must continue.

In front of the heroic spirits of Gwangju, Gwangju citizens and the people, I summarized what Chun Doo-hwan said about Gwangju during his lifetime, who left without a word of repentance or apology.
I interviewed him in person, and it was probably the only televised interview after I retired.
Today, the lyrics of the song ‘Song of May’, a song about Gwangju, touches my heart even more.
