Commemorating the 90th anniversary of the patriotic deed of Korean martyr Kang Woo-gyu, members of the Saikdong Troupe yesterday reenact his arrest by Japanese police at the square in front of Seoul Station. Kang was arrested for throwing a bomb at Namdaemun Station (now Seoul Station Plaza) at the Japanese governor-general. Kang served time in prison and died after being released on bail at age 64.
