It was belatedly known that Kim Geon-hee, wife of President Yoon Seok-yeol, who recently took a ‘brazy walk’, gave a public speech at a concert commemorating the late Major Sim Jeong-min on the 18th.

This is the first time Kim has spoken in public. Initially, Ms. Kim was planning to visit Major Sim’s memorial concert on an unofficial personal schedule, but some media reported related photos as either readers or viewers provided.

According to a report by Cookie News on the 20th, Ms. Kim said in her speech, “It must have been a difficult choice for a young friend to make a decision to sacrifice himself in an instant if we deeply think about it.”

Kim said, “Thanks to the sacrifice of this young soldier, I think that it was a great sacrifice and great love, considering that we were given the gift of a day to live even though it is painful every day.” I think that I loved the people and loved the people and protected us all with a heart that loved the Republic of Korea.”

He continued, “Every day is hard, but when I think about how this friend gave us each day, I feel like it gave me a big message, saying, ‘I will try to overcome more and more pain and live a life of gratitude.’ “, he added.

Major Shim, who was a member of the Air Force’s 10th Fighter Wing, was killed in January when a KF-5E fighter jet crashed due to an engine malfunction while taking off for a mission. In order to prevent damage from the fall of the private house, Major Shim died while turning the nose toward the mountain without releasing the control rod until the end, but missed the emergency evacuation time. This commemorative performance was held to commemorate the publication of ‘You shine like a torch’.

In the past week, including this commemorative concert, Mrs. Kim has had seven external schedules.

President Yoon and his wife watched the movie ‘The Broker’ at a theater in downtown Seoul on the 12th and had a dinner by inviting filmmakers to the presidential office. He took care of his wife, Kwon Yang-sook. On the 14th, I had a luncheon with the wives of senior lawmakers with 4 or more terms of the People’s Power, and on the 16th, I visited the late former President Chun Doo-hwan’s wife Lee Soon-ja.

On the 17th, the next day, 130 veterans and veterans of national merit who visited the remains of Korean War victims together with President Yoon were invited to the Yongsan War Memorial of Korea for a luncheon. On the same day, I met Kim Jung-sook, the wife of former President Moon Jae-in, in some place in Seoul.
