Hakdang-gol Revolutionary Site in DPRK
Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) -- The Hakdang-gol Revolutionary Site situated in the center of Pyongyang is associated with the exploits of indomitable revolutionary fighter Kim Hyong Jik, father of President Kim Il Sung. Service personnel, working people and school youth and children are visiting the site in an endless stream.

There stands a monument "May Korean National Association Shine Long" at the site.

In the 1910s Kim Hyong Jik made a scientific analysis of the then situation of the country and the anti-Japanese national liberation movement before setting forth the idea of "Jiwon," which calls for aiming high in order to drive out the Japanese imperialists and achieve the independence of the country by the efforts of the Korean nation.

Based on the above-said noble idea of continuous revolution, the patriotic idea, Kim Hyong Jik formed the Korean National Association with patriotic advocates of the independence movement in Hakdang-gol on March 23, Juche 6 (1917).

The association was a revolutionary organization to unite all the anti-Japanese patriotic forces and lead in a unified way the national liberation movement across the country.

The visitors bear in mind the truth that the idea of "Jiwon" has been steadily carried forward down through generations thanks to the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu.
