By holding candlelight rallies across the country, frustrated South Koreans have voiced flooding concerns over current political developments and series of scandals, including the snowballing election manipulation allegations [1]@Emfla505 [2] tweeted [3] [ko] this stunning photo of protest in Seoul (below) and WikiTree.com site gathered more photos [4] of rallies on December 19.

Today at Seoul City Hall Plaza! After Korean Confederation of Trade Unions’ flags have all retreated, only citizens’ candlelight were left as you can see from the photo. I strongly believe that these citizens with candlelight will change the derailed history of Republic of Korea.
