Daehak-ro, the street running through the popular Daehangno area that attracts countless young adults every day, is notorious for traffic congestion. It was recently transformed into a car-free street for a day to allow people to enjoy walking around the area, check out a wide range of street performances and take part in fun activities, without a single car in sight. It’s been 30 years since the street was opened only to pedestrians, with restricted car access, for citizens to enjoy culture and performing arts. The project has been revived, and it offered a chance for the older generations to reminisce about their days of youth, while the younger generations got to engage in various fun activities. We take you to see the transformation of Daehak-ro into a car-free street.

At a makeup academy in Uijeongbu in Gyeonggi-do Province, makeup artists welcome elderly married couples who have been together for more than 60 years. There are Korean War veterans and descendants of independence activists as well as their spouses, for whom a special wedding anniversary ceremony has been organized by the state in time for the Month of Patriots and Veterans. The eldest couple among them are Oh Cheol-hwan, an 89-year-old Korean War veteran, and his 91-year-old wife, Woo Jong-geum. A year into their marriage, Mr. Oh was conscripted to fight in the Korea War, and while he was away, his wife took care of his parents and siblings. They were reunited after the war and they have stood the test of time, celebrating 70 years of marriage this year. Along with other couples, with similar stories, they put on a wedding gown and a tuxedo for a special anniversary ceremony. We take you to meet the national meritorious persons and their spouses who will inspire you with their enduring love!
