Yongsan Children’s Garden opened

The Yongsan Children’s Garden has been open to the public since May 4, the first anniversary of the president’s inauguration. 

Yoon said in his speech to reporters, “I’m very grateful to you for your help over the past year. I hope we can make a difference in society together. If you’re confined to the press room and can’t see the sun, your health suffers from a lack of vitamin D. Seeing you eating here in the sun I feel that it will make your health a little better. It seems that there is no place for children to run around, so I named this place as a children’s garden. Children can come and make it a space where they could run freely on this lawn. I plan to build a fountain garden here. When it gets hotter, I will let the children play here like the fountain square in front of the city hall.”


President Yoon expressed his will to defend freedom in his speech at Harvard University

Yoon spoke on Friday afternoon, April 28, at Harvard University’s Kennedy School about pioneering a new journey for freedom. Prior to his speech, he visited Harvard Memorial Church to pay tribute to Harvardians who gave their lives to defend freedom. He also paused in front of a copper plate bearing the names of 18 Harvard graduates who died in the Korean War, honoring their sacrifices in defense of Korea’s freedom. After his visit to Memorial Church, he met with Harvard University President Lawrence S. Bacow. His speech at Harvard University is the first speech by a sitting president of the Republic of Korea. His speech was attended by Harvard University students and faculty, as well as Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Professor in the field of international politics. Yoon emphasized that the ROK-US alliance, which celebrated its 70th anniversary this year, is the central axis that has protected Korea’s freedom and fostered prosperity. He made it clear that the ROK-US alliance, which has been preserved through the noble sacrifice of many people, is a value alliance based on the universal value of liberal democracy. He mentioned that Koreans are remembering by building a memorial park for Captain William Hamilton Shaw, a Harvard student who died in the Korean War. He thanked Captain Shaw’s daughter-in-law Carole Cameron Shaw and grandson William Cameron Shaw for attending the speech. He concluded his speech by asking the Harvardians who joined in solidarity and cooperation for freedom. After he finished his speech, he had a discussion with Chair Professor Joseph Nye, followed by a Q&A session with students attending the lecture.
