I was just nosing round the web, looking for varied comments on the assassination, when I came across gopkorea. I have also been screening THE PRESIDENT'S LAST BANG on YouTube and would like to recommend it highly to anyone interested in contemporary Korean history - not that it is accurate, simply that it reveals (in comic fashion) the dynamics of a truly nutty society, at war with itself and the world for over a century.

I was particularly amazed that in a thought-control state like Korea (yes, even the south - it's embedded in the culture and psychology) such a free-spirited satire on the sacred cows could get up and running. Good show all around.

I remember his picture hung in every class room.
