The official sign hanging ceremony, signaling the beginning of a task force in charge of the restoration of the Old Jeollanamdo Provincial Hall situated in downtown Gwangju, took place at the May 18 Democracy Plaza on Wednesday.

 

Jongmin Kim reports

 

The long-awaited old Jeollanamdo Provincial Halls restoration project, took a major step forward on Tuesday. The project aims to help preserve the history of the May 18 Democratic Uprising.

 

The new task force named the Old Jeonnam Provincial Hall Restoration Enforcement Bureau will be under direct management of the 1st Deputy Culture Minister and will be composed of 2 divisions of restoration cooperation and restoration facility and 1 team of exhibition content.

 

The opening ceremony was held earlier this morning with hundreds of people in attendance including Minister Park Yang-Woo from the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, Gwangju Mayor Lee Yong-Sub, City Councilor Kim Dong-Chan and Gwangju citizens from various May 18th organizations.

 

Minister Park said the task force will push ahead with the project to restore the Old Provincial Hall as close to its original form from 1980 when the May 18 Democratic Uprising took place.

 

The Institute will collect and analyze related data and reports and recreate the shape and form of the buildings in 3D models. In addition, May 18th related experts and civic groups requested the ministry in charge to reflect the opinions of the citizens before confirming its final plan for the restoration work. It is estimated that the project will be a two-year renovation project starting from 2020 aiming to finish and open to the public in 2022.
