Mr. Hwang’s Speech at Imjingak

June 17, 2016: Mr. Hwang’s speech at the June 17 rally at Imjingak organised with the assistance of Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR).

Do you know why this bridge is important? This bridge is the very bridge that my father was not able to return on.

In 1969, my father was on the hijacked plane with 49 other passengers. Fifty people were kidnapped. However, only 39 people were allowed to return; eleven were unable to return.

Those 39 who were able to return came back on this bridge. I still believe that those other 11 people should be able to cross the same bridge and return home.  There is not a single reason that my father deserves to be forced to stay in North Korea.

I’m certain that through your support and through your interest, we will be able to bring my father home to South Korea. I plead with you to take interest in my cause and my father’s cause and also to sympathize with us and my family. Thank you.
