'March for the beloved', ceremonial marking stone to be established

 

'님을 위한 행진곡' 태어난 곳에 기념 표지석 선다

'March for the beloved', ceremonial marking stone to be established

 

 

 

There will be a marking stone established in the commemoration of "March for the beloved".

 

The song "March for the beloved" is known as the symbol of the democratization movement especially from the 1980's.

 

Therefore, the Gwangju Cultural Foundation revealed on May 11th that there will be a marking stone established at the Gwangju Culture and Arts Center.

 

There will also be an establishment ceremony held on May 13th. The location is next to the GukAk(국악) Hall where the song was composed in the past.

 

The song is originated from a poem written by Baek GiWan(백기완), the Director of the institute for Unification Issues. It was back in 1980 when he was tortured at the Security Office.

 

The lyrics were derived from 'Mwat-bi-na-ri', wrtitten by Hwang SeokYeong(황석영), the novelist. Also, the melody was formed by composer Kim JongLyul(김종률) who was a student in Jeonnam University at the time.

 

The song was completed in 1982, and it soon spread to the region and then across the nation to deliver the painful democratic movement of the 1980's.
