Chapter Summary

It is now an old tale, but during the outburst of the kimi year (1919) movement, while the whole capital was ringing with shouts of 'xxxxxx', the author sat in what is today the T'aehwagwan Restaurant. Two primary school students, seemingly aged around twelve or thirteen, were waving their hands in the direction of his car, shouting 'xxxx'. They were stopped by 'xxxx' and fell into ditch, but continued to shout slogans and were in the end arrested. He could see through the car window that one student was continuing to shout even as the other student was arrested. But as he watched this scene and listened to their shouts, he burst into tears before he realized what was happening. The tears he shed at the sight of those two students and the sound of their voices are the wound. He will not forget for the whole of his life.
