[Spoiler] “Bridal Mask” boxer recalls Son Gi-jeong

“Bridal Mask” recalled boxer Son Gi-jeong this time.

On the episode of the KBS 2TV drama “Bridal Mask” on the 15th, the Chosun people greeted their boxer with the flag and the boxer responded by ripping off the national flag of Japan.

At the news of a Chosun youth becoming champion, the governor judged that this was the result of the Chosun and Japan come together and ordered the proper greeting for the boxer who was to return home.

However, the boxer who arrived at the parade had the national flag of Japan on him and was surrounded by people holding the Japanese flag and he seemed like he had no choice but to wave his hands at them.

Just then, the eastward all-or-nothing association held up the Korean flag first. The youths slowly started shouting one by one, “Hooray Chosun youth!!” and the other people followed them by taking out their Korean flags.

Previously, the all-or-nothing association had already handed out the flags to the people and told them to open it at home. The Japanese police were shocked at the sudden wave of Korean flags and pictures were taken to make a memory of this.

This scene recalled Son Gi-jeong, a gold medalist from the 1936 Berlin Olympic Marathons. Son had to represent Japan with the Japanese flag. At the award giving ceremony up came the Japanese flag and the national anthem of Japan. He couldn’t hide the humiliation on his face. A newspaper reporter at the time even printed his picture without the Japanese flag on him.

  1. I’m confused if I’m remember correctly wasn’t Son Gi Jeong a Marathon Runner? But why in this article do they refer to him as a boxer? Does anyone know? I remember reading about him sad that Japan is still credited for his historic win of the Olympic Gold Medal. But to everyone his Gold Medal is and will always will be Korea’s first Gold Medal in the Olympics.
