[당시 대학생(유족 제공 추모 영상 중) : 저는 대학생 대표는 아니고 아주 평범한 보통 대학생들 가운데 한 사람입니다.]

[노태우 / 당시 대통령(유족 제공 추모 영상 중) : 오늘 잘 만났네, 보통 대통령이랑 보통 대학생이랑….]

Roh Tae-woo, an ‘ordinary person’ who appears in a video to commemorate the bereaved family.

As the first direct president, he is credited with biding for the 1988 Olympic Games, northern diplomacy, and economic democratization.

However, the mistakes of the 12/12 military coup and the armed suppression of the 5/18 pro-democracy movement followed me throughout my life like a shadow.

This is the reason why there were voices against the head of state even in the political circles.

Most of the passport dignitaries also did not attend the funeral.

Representative Song Young-gil cited a different schedule as the reason, and presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung stated that he had done his duty as a condolences.

Lee Jun-seok, CEO of People’s Power, attended.

The close aides of the 6th Republic, who kept the mortuary every day, also joined us on the last road.

[노재봉 / 노태우 정부 국무총리 : 이 숙명을 이제 벗어나야겠다고 판단한 것이 바로 군 출신 대통령은 내가 마지막이야 라고 말씀하신 배경이었습니다.]

In the past, he took the lead in the student movement for democratization, but now Prime Minister Kim Bu-gyeom, who participated in the decision of the head of the state as a member of the State Council, left a message to the bereaved family.

[김부겸 / 국무총리 : 지금처럼 고인이 직접 하지 못했던 사과를 이어가 주시기 바랍니다. 과거사의 진상규명을 위한 노력에도 끝까지 함께 해 주십시오.]

The 13th President Roh Tae-woo, who left both pride and deep pain, his historical evaluation is still ongoing.
