Picture of the Day: Gwangju Incident Remembered

Family members of the victims of a 1980 democracy movement sing «March for the Beloved,» a song symbolizing the movement, on May 17, 2013, in Gwangju. The southwestern city is where protests began on May 18, 1980, against the regime of Chun Doo-hwan, a general who seized power through a coup, and hundreds were killed and wounded by the military quelling the demonstrations. Requests by the family members to have the song sung by all attendees at this year’s anniversary ceremony was rejected by the government. (Yonhap)
