Last class, we talked about different perspective of historical figure between countries. For example, Ahn Jung Geun who assassinated Ito Hirobumi who was Prime Minster of Japan during Japanese colonization, is a hero in Korea but terrorist in Japan.

I hope China understands the Koreans request and wait the development until Korea finishes the planned excavation work.
