    Yesterday, legendary musician Paul McCartney gave a passionate performance at Jamsil Olympic Stadium. At Sir McCartney’s invitation, I attended the concert alongside Korean celebrities, such as Yun Do-hyun, Park Chan-wook, and Bae Cheol-su.

    Before the concert, I had the opportunity to meet Sir McCartney and talk to him for a while. He showed great interest in Seoul’s policies on eco-friendliness, climate change, as well as its policies for vegetarians.

    I told him about the Sewol Ferry tragedy and asked him to offer some words of consolation to the families of the victims, and he wrote “Be strong” and “Love” on the postcards to commemorate the Sewol Ferry tragedy. In these difficult times, I hope that this serves as some small consolation to the families of the Sewol Ferry victims as well as all Korean people.
