Hwang In-Cheol was the featured speaker at a National Assembly panel discussion on February 14 about the 1969 hijacking of a South Korean airplane to North Korea.

On February 14, 1970, North Korea returned 39 people, but kept 11, including Hwang-won, the father of Hwang In-Cheol.

On Thursday, 49 years later, several South Korean Congressmen issued strong statements in support of Hwang In-Cheol and demanded that the South Korean president do more to help with resolving this case.

I was one of the other speakers at the panel discussion. Behind-the-scenes, Youngmin Kwon was the coordinator dealing with multiple issues and also translated on Thursday.

Here’s the news coverage so far.
