Yoon’s visit to Wonchon Baptist Church in Suwon, 30 km south of Seoul, came five days before the nation marks the anniversary of the March 1 Independence Movement, Yonhap news agency reported.

He is the first sitting President to attend a church service honouring the movement, according to presidential spokesperson Kim Soo-kyung.

“One hundred and five years ago, our patriotic martyrs gathered their convictions and determination for freedom and started the March 1 movement,” Yoon was quoted as saying in remarks after the service.

“The South Korean church was on that great journey toward a free and prosperous future.

“As a global pivotal state, we will contribute responsibly to world peace and joint prosperity, and work for a new leap by South Korea,” he said.

“The government and I will move close to the people’s lives from a humbler position, and carry out state affairs warmly by holding each and every person’s hands.”
