The opening ceremony of the 1988 Seoul Olympics provided two very different images at the lighting of the flame.
An emotional start saw 76-year-old Sohn Kee-chung, the first Korean to win an Olympic medal, bring the torch into the stadium and hand it to another athlete.
Sohn won marathon gold at the 1936 Berlin Games, but as Korea was under Japanese rule he was forced to compete for them and his medal boosted their tally.
The traditional release of doves happened for the final time when a number settled in the cauldron that housed the Olympic flame as it was being lit, and were killed.
