Gwangbokjeol

“Restoration of Light Day”, also called the Independence Day of Korea

On the 15th of August, Korea celebrates a public holiday commemorating its liberation from colonial rule by Japan.

Homes are encouraged to fly the Taegukki (korean flag) and most public transport and museums are free to descendants of independence activists on this day.

The official “Gwangbokjeol song”(광복절 노래) is sung at official ceremonies.
