August 15, 2019 marked the 74th anniversary of Liberation Day in Korea and the 71st anniversary of the birth of the Republic of Korea.  Massive flag rallies occurred in central Seoul, including Seoul Station, City Hall Plaza, and Daehanmun, South Korea.  People held South Korean flags (Taegukgi), the U.S. flags (Seongjogi), and the Israeli flags. ‘

Many called for Moon Jae-in to step down; some went further to demand Moon’s impeachment or drive him out from the office.  Major media, such as SBS and MBC, did not cover the rallies.
