Former President Roh Tae Woos son Jae Heon visits Gwangju


Former President Roh Tae Woos eldest son Jae Heon (재현) came to Gwangju to deliver an apology to the victims of the May 18th Democratic Movement. It has been 3 months since he visited the City and the May 18th National Cemetery.


Jae Heon also visited the Kim Dae Jung Convention Center on the day to admire the achievements of the deceased former president.


Reportedly he also visited the May Mothers House, and had 30 minute talks with officials including the Chairman Jeong Hyeon Ae (정현애), who was imprisoned for the 1980 Gwangju Uprising.


Jae Heon is the first person in Chun Doo Hwan (전두환) or Roh Tae Woos (노태우) immediate family to apologize to those who died and their families. His visit is known to have be made upon his fathers wish.
