    This is a picture of the full moon that a Seoul Metropolitan Government official sent to me from his hometown. It makes me rejuvenate my resolve to be a mayor who helps local residents accomplishing their dreams.

    A poem “Moonlit prayer on Chuseok”

    When everyone’s heart becomes a full moon
    With the yearning for home

    I pray with all my heart
    That our glances at each other may become pure and soft like moonlight
    That our lives may be brightened with the darkness of greed removed
    That our mind may shed hatred and prejudices.

    A beautiful moon rises in my heart at Hangawi
    May the moon stay in your heart
    And may you be happy forever!

    – Composed by Lee Hae-in
