Abstract

Grief, anger, relief and pride were some of the more intense emotions aroused by political and economic developments in South Korea in the 2009 – 2010 period. Grief and mourning were caused by the deaths of former presidents Roh Moo-hyun (2003 – 2008) and Kim Dae-jung (1998 – 2003). The suicide of Roh, who had been targeted by prosecutors for financial misconduct while in office, aroused an outburst of anger even beyond the ranks of his ardent supporters. Anti-government protests following on the heels of Roh’s death again highlighted the political fissures that characterize today’s South Korean society. (The rest omitted)
