Nov. 3 is the ‘Student’s Day (Students’ Independence Movement Day)’ in Korea. It is a day for honoring ‘the Gwang-ju Students’ Independence Movement’ which happened in 1929.
On Oct. 30, 1929, Japanese Students harassed a Korean female student, and the incident became a trigger of an anti-Japanese movement on Nov. 3, 1929. This anniversary is made for fostering patriotism by awakening the spirit of the students’ independence movement to students. In addition, it is nationally made for reminding what young people have to do for the nation and society.
