After Korea’s liberation, as the Prime Minister and and then as the President, he energetically worked for implementing the cause of socialism, democracy and independence, as well as for defending sovereignty of the Korean nation. He continued his inspection tours to see people from just after the liberation to the last period of his life. People’s demands and interests were the standard of all his actions.
