  • The May 18th National Cemetery opened in 1997 is where the victims of one of the deadliest incidents in modern Korean history, the May 18 Democratic Uprising of 1980, are resting.

    Officially, the casualties include 228 dead or missing and 4141 wounded, but the real numbers are believed to be much higher.

     

    The cemetery is, today, a symbol of democracy and freedom where people can learn about the history of the events that happened and honor the people who lost their lives during this tragedy.
