Former S. Korean President Roh Tae-woo dies at 88 Updated: 2021-10-26 15:03:13 KST

Former South Korean president Roh Tae-woo died today at the age of 88.
A former army general, as South Korea's 13th president, he was the country's first leader chosen in a free and direct election.
Under his administration, from 1988 to 1993, South Korea started the process of building ties with North Korea, and established ties with socialist countries.
Prior to Noh's election, South Korea had been ruled by a dictator, Chun Doo-hwan, and Noh's help bringing him to power in a coup marred his career.
Under Chun, Roh directed crackdowns on pro-democracy protesters and served as a government minister.
After his presidency, Roh was convicted of mutiny, treason and corruption, but was pardoned by his successor Kim Young-sam.
