Gwanghwamun Square Candlelight Protest


More than 10-15 million South Koreans came out onto to the streets beginning with the Gwanghwamun Square candlelight protest on October 29th 2016 and ending with the impeachment of former president Park. 

The pop media characters and images were edited into photos of the protests. The demonstrators merge with pop culture to become part of a united body or clash and divide.

The crowds release a different energy depending on the characters painted over them.
