Our Only Wish
The Republic of Korea in the late 1980s was officially a democratic country but still headed by authorities who needed to be ousted. Korea at this time was a particular space, where the energy of the long-oppressed people began to find an outlet. As the system of anti-communism, nationalism, and fascism that lasted over several decades began to fracture, young students began to lead the discourse on North Korea and unification, which had long been taboos. Such movement resulted in two symbolic events: the demand for the joint hosting of the 1988 Seoul Olympics from both Koreas and South Korea’s participation in the 1989 World Festival of Youth and Students in Pyongyang.
