The controversial "Baekdu Praise Committee" praised North Korean leader Kim Dzong Eun and organized a voice contest in the city, despite three accusations from conservative groups. Conservative groups demanded that Kim Jong Il and Pyongyang immediately praise the system and resume the rally.
About 50 people from Baekdu Kwangsu organized a popularizing contest "Kim Jung Eun" and the show "Flower Wave" in Gwanghwamun in Seoul on 18:00. The young man who was the speaker said: "The visit of Kim Jong Eun in Seoul came from his driving force and boldness." He felt a desire to unite in his performance as Seoul's leader, "he said." In addition to President Jae-in, many people met Kim Jong Eun, such as Chung Dong-young, Democratic Peace Party, Lee Kyung-Hwan, Minister of the Universe and Minister for Culture and Tourism Mr. Doo Jong Hwan, "It was enough to get rid of the distorted picture of the dictator that we had before," he said.
There were also anti-American remarks. A young man who introduced himself as Sungkyunkwan University said: "In the past, the visits to Seoul by leading North Korean leaders have been carried out several times, but this is because the United States has more power than usual." Kim Jong-A North and South have been overwhelmed by the power of North Korea. "
Teenagers, such as teenagers, were in the competition. A teenager belonging to the "children's youth group" Seum said: "I am afraid that some extreme rightists will interfere in the visit of Kim Jong Eun in Seoul. "But I think that Chairman Kim will be able to straighten out," he said. A participant who said she is a 15-year-old middle school student said: "When President Moon arrived in the North, North Korean citizens were welcomed, and many people were impressed by Kim Jong Eun and Lee Sook-ju. I want to welcome you."
"Do you remember the times when you were stationed in the United States because of reunification," said the landlady, "now there is no national security law." They also laugh at Nak Gyeong-won, a member of Na-Kyung-won, who expressed negative views about Kim's visit to Seoul, "mock his feet and sleep," and criticized him for saying that. "
The praising Baekdu Party, which was formed to persuade Kim to visit Kim Jong-il in Seoul, announced on December 7 that he had been invited to the Supreme Public Prosecutor's Office for alleged violations of the National Security Act at the headquarters of the National Taekwin National Revolutionary Movement. And he was charged on three occasions. They argued that the Baekdu party was a "bright group" and that it clearly violated laws such as praise of glory and destruction of the flag. However, an official of the Baekdu Praise Association said: "Why do not Koreans sing praise when they sing their name and sing when a foreign singer comes in?" "Today's event is the first act and signal for Baekdu Praise, We will continue to perform in Busan, Daegu, Gyeonggi and other countries."
30 minutes before the speech, reporters Hong Jung-sik, a conservative group, appeared in the lecture hall with the poster "Kim Dzong-un is condemned by the Baekdu Praise Committee." Hong said: "Stop the ceremony immediately." He protested: "Do you run a civil commission for a dictator who created a committee to welcome you in your heart and kill your family and brother?" The meeting took place in front of the Sejong Culture Center, opposite KT Gwanghwamun KT, where the speech took place on Saturday at 19.00. Park said: "The basic value of progress is human rights, but it's absurd to represent Kim Jong Eun, who is trampling human rights in North Korea."
Residents who visited Gwanghwamun over the weekend showed different reactions. Omo (27), a company employee, said: "Our generation is not good with the image of North Korea because of the continued armed provocation of North Korea," he said. "I have no objections to Kim's visit to Seoul, I pointed out that the expression is rough." The union must come, and in the atmosphere of peace I consider such an event to be good, "said citizen Choi, who met on stage -" there is a difference in expressing individuals, and I think it is a positive thing to achieve peace.
