Gwangju - literally means 'the city of light' - is a city located in South Jeolla province, well known as the gourmet destination in South Korea. 

18th of May 1980, the protest started in Gwangju by 200 young students from Chonnam national university against the military regime. The military blocked the city - nobody in, nobody out - the people living outside of Gwangju had no idea what was going on in the city. The citizens of Gwangju witnessed their young students got attacked by the soldiers brutally on their streets, which led them to join the protest. Three days later, on the 20th of May, more than 10,000 citizens gathered on the streets. Bus and taxi drivers helped the citizens to transport and march, Gwangju's mothers gathered and prepared rice balls to feed the citizens. Unfortunately, the army began to fire on citizens; in public, the massacre started. More than 300 people were killed, with dozens still missing. Despite the defeat, Gwangju's resistance is now seen as the first shot of ending the dictatorships and creating true democracy in South Korea. The city's spirit has been influencing many other Asian countries where still in the fight for democracy.
