ABSTRACT

In 2019, Buma democratic uprising has been established as national memorial day. By this decision, this uprising has been built as a legitimate and orthodox democratic movement in Korean democratic history. From now, the State would reveal the political truth about this movement, opening regularly and periodically the national ceremony for this memorial day. We can say that the establishment of Buma democratic uprising as a national memorial day will take a important role for finding its truths. But, we may not say that all of truth about this uprising will completely be revealed. Because Buma democratic uprising and its participants will exist as signification and being beyond the unitary political subject that the national memorial day can define. It is necessary to observe that they are peoples, very complex, often contradictory, sometimes incoherent. So, they can be called the diverse or the particular. It may be possible to open, in this thought, a door of imagination towards the another democracy beyond the democracy defined by the political modernity.
