During the period of Japanese rule in Korea, a lot of independence fighters laid down their lives for Korea’s independence. But adults weren’t the only ones fighting. Young students also tried hard to defend our country. On Nov. 3, 1929, students carried out an independence movement in Gwangju, South Jeolla Province. 24 years later, Nov. 3 became known as Student’s Day to celebrate the brave students and inspire patriotism. Today, it is known as Student Independence Movement Day.
