August 15th is National Liberation Day in Korea. Some people like it simply because it is a day off. However, National Liberation Day commemorates the liberation of Korea from Japanese colonial rule on August 15, 1945, and celebrates the establishment of the Korean government (August 15, 1948). On October 1, 1949, Independence Day was established as a national holiday in accordance with the Act on National Day.
On this day, celebrations are held nationwide, with central celebrations held in Seoul and local celebrations held in each city and province.
In order to enhance the significance of Liberation Day, all families across the country celebrate with flags, and the government invites personnel from all walks of life and diplomatic envoys to hold a celebratory banquet in the evening.
This year is the 77th National Liberation Day, and many campaigns and events have been held.
△Comments to cheer for Korean Armed Forces soldiers △Korea's cheering writing contest △Taegeukgi campaign held at the Ilsan Station Exhibition Hall △Shouting "Long Live Korea" by Naver voice search.
Among them, the Liberation Day Marathon was the most impressive, including taking photos and donating after the 8.15km and 81.5km marathon. It consisted of various programs. Celebrities also ran together, participating in donations and events. It was a meaningful event in which all Koreans participated with one heart.
Liberation Day! It's not just a holiday. Korea is now home to the sweat and blood of countless patriotic martyrs. On this hot August day, let's remember the cheers of our ancestors that were hotter than that!
