In Gwangju in May 1980...

From Yonhap:

On the 18th at Geumbu Elementary School, the students of 4th grade 5th and their parents had a class together on the 31st anniversary of the 5.18 Democracy movement.

The teacher and parents told the students of the background of 5.18, how the citizens fought the martial law army, and the significance of the uprising. Students and parents wore headbands like Gwangju's citizens did at the time and made rice balls (jumeokbap).

I've looked at how the uprising is commemorated in Gwangju before here and here.
