Crowds gathered across South Korea on December 10, the day after the national assembly voted to go ahead with impeachment proceedings against President Park Geun-hye. In Gwangju, popular television host Kim Je-dong led protesters in song.

Gwangju is a traditional opposition stronghold. The song being sung in the video is March for the Beloved, which is strongly associated with a 1980 massacre of protesters in the city. Kim is a comedian and talk show host with a reputation for social criticism and liberal political views.
