The habit of wearing a mulmangcho(the flower-"Forget me Not") badge, which means that we should remember the abductees and not giving up on finding their fate and bringing them back, is spreading among State Council members and members of the National Assembly.

Park Jae-wan (Minister of Strategy and Finance), Choi Joong-kyung (Minister of Knowledge Economy), Lee Ju-ho (Minister of Education, Science and Technology), Kwon Do-youp (Minister of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs), Suh Kyu-yong (Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs), who attended the government interpellation at the plenary session of the National Assembly on the 21st, all wore a light-blue flowers badges on the left collar of their suits. The day before, Prime Minister Kim Hwang-sik and Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan wore mulmangcho badges at official events.

Park Seon-yeong (Liberty Forward Party), member of the National Assembly who gave mulmangcho badges to Prime Minister Kim and other politicians, handed out badges to the ministers at the National Assembly. Some of them told Park Seon-yeong that they would make donations to the Korean War Abductees’ Family Union, which made these badges. In Japan, high-ranking governmental officials, including the prime minister, make donations to private organizations that seek to rescue abducted Japanese and wear blue ribbons to show their support for repatriating the abductees. All members and executives of the Liberty Forward Party, to which Park Seon-yeong belongs to, decided to wear mulmangcho badges to the meeting in the morning.
