Mourning of a politician in South Korea.

Links to this post

I remember the moment when Barack Obama announce his winning speech at a park in Chicago…

 

This scene was linked the dramatic moment in South Korea in 2002.

The moment, when the 16th President of Republic of Korea was elected, was very similar than what happened in the USA in 2008.

 

Late Roo Moo-Hyun, who was the 16th president of Republic of Korea (South Korea).

 

He was the symbol of democracy and moderate liberal politics in South Korea.

 

Unbelievable death…

Actually, he committed suicide but it is believed that Political Revenge culture from politicians, polices, prosecutors and media gave the motivation of his suicide.

He asked “Don’t be sad” to his family and colleagues on the last letter, which was written before he died.

However, they and majority Korean cannot accept his last request.

South Korea has not changed what he want…

 

Rest in Peace dear the foolishness politician, who is admired and mourned by majority people.
