August 15th marks the anniversary for South Korea’s liberation. Gwangbokjeol, also called as the National Liberation Day of Korea, celebrated annually on August 15, is one of the public holidays in South Korea. It commemorates Victory over Japan Day, which liberated Korea from colonial rule.
Independent Korean governments were created three years later, on August 15, 1948, when the pro-Soviet Kim Il-sung was made first Premier of North Korea and pro-U.S. Syngman Rhee was made first President of South Korea. Gwangbokjeol was officially designated a public holiday on October 1, 1949 in South Korea and is known as Chogukhaebangŭi nal in North Korea.
In honor of all the festivities, a light show consisting of more than 250,000 LED’s will showcase a light show. The show will be held at Daejeon National Cemetery.
