Song for the martyrs

May 19,2018
Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon, second from left in front row, and dignitaries sing “March for the Beloved,” an anthem of the democratization movement, during the 38th anniversary of the May 18 Gwangju Democratization Movement held at the May 18 National Cemetery in Gwangju on Friday. Lee expressed deep regret about the “criminal behavior” of the past government in the tank-led quelling of the uprising that left hundreds of people killed and thousands wounded. [YONHAP]
