Pope Francis arrives in Korea


President Park Geun-hye greets Pope Francis on Aug. 14 at Seoul Airport in Seongnam, Gyeonggi. The pontiff’s visit to Korea, which runs from Aug. 14 to Aug. 18, is expected to carry far-reaching implications along with religious symbolism, with events involving many types of people, particularly the marginalized.

박근혜 대통령이 8월14일 경기도 성남 서울공항에서 프란치스코 교황을 영접하고 있다. 교황은 8월14일부터 18일까지 한국에 머물며, 종교적인 상징성 뿐만 아니라 각계각층의 사람들, 특히 소외계층을 위한 행사들에 참여해 큰 영향을 끼칠 것으로 예상된다.
