    May 18th Liberty Hall

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    May 18th Liberty Hall

    Fondest memory: It was built in memorial to all the people who where killed or arrested from the dictators during the rebellion in 1983.

    It is situated next to the police camp.... and it also shows the way of Korea from a dictatorship to a modern democracy.

    The court room

    The court room

    Fondest memory: Inside this area they also "installed" a court room. It was made in memory to the people who demonstrated against the dictatorship in the early 80's. The officals litigate against them and they went into prison. One of them was Kim-Dae-jung, who became later the president... and he got the Nobel Peace Price due to its "sunshine policy" with North Korea ....

    You have to know that even South Korea was a dictatorship until the early 90's. The first democratic president was elected in 1993 and it was Kim Young-sam.

    The Police camp

    The

    Favorite thing: A police camp and "family travel" ... what interesting sort of travelling you may think... :-)) It needs some explaination: This Police Camp is no police camp anymore. But today it is a museum and there are held intersting exhibitions there ... and it also is one of external places of the Gwangju Biennale ....

    By the way, the "back shadow" on the right side in the forefront of the picture is no phantom... it´s my korean girlfriend Kanghee ... :-))

    Fondest memory: Although loud music is quite usual in streets of downtown, this was a sort of dance competition outside Migliore department store (downtown).

    Apartment complexes

    Fondest memory: Today many korean lives in apartment complexes. And there are many churches all over the country .... because the most part of the koreans are christians.
