Synopsis
Kim Dae-jung competed against Park Chung-hee of the Democratic Republican Party as the presidential candidate of the New Democratic Party, but lost in 1971. He then lead a pro-democracy movement against the Park Chung-hee regime in the United States, Japan and other countries, until he was kidnapped by an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency (now the National Intelligence Service) in a hotel in Tokyo on the 8th of August, 1973.

He was imprisoned for the 1976-1978 Declaration of Democracy and National Salvation and resumed his political career in early 1980, but was sentenced to death for treason in July in connection with the Gwangju pro-democracy movement. He was released from prison in December 1982 and moved to the U.S. The 10-year record of the New Democratic Party's presidential candidate from 1971 to his release in 1982 is covered in the 10th anniversary of his death.
