Most people often misconceive the concept of the Independence Day and the Liberation Day.
Independence Day is the celebration of the anniversary of the beginnings of national independence.
Liberation Day marks the date of either revolution, the end of oppressive regime, or the end of occupation by another nation, thereby it is different from independence in the meaning of secession from another country.
National Independence Day of Korea: March 1st
The Liberation Day of Korea: August 15th
