Eight men have joined hands as peace messengers.
Eight men have joined hands as peace messengers.
They call themselves the Peace Boys, and will be making their appearance at the third Women's Marathon organized by The Women's News, where their duty will be to show to the participants the fervor and desire for peace in a fun and easy way. The group will be the only men in the all-women marathon.

The eight peace lovers are Kang Ji-won from the law firm Cheongji, Kim Byung-hu, psychiatrist and representative of Fathers who Love Their Daughters, congressman Park Jin from the Grand National Party, singer-songwriter Yoo Yeol, vocalist Lim Woong-kyun, professor Pyo Chang-won from the Police Academy, TV personality Hong Seok-cheon, and marathon coach Hwang Young-jo from the Seoul Olympic Sports Promotion Foundation.

From professor to singer, they come from all walks of life. Marathon participants will get to see them on May 11 wearing the Peace Boys uniform. Their task is to deliver the anti-war peace message at mass sporting events.

They will be running in the 3-km Family Peace course, and will take the 5-km National Peace course in a relay, covering 1km each. Spectators will be treated to the sight of these men waving flags and balloons and shouting slogans while running.

The Peace Boys all say, "We're elated to be participating as men in an all-women marathon for peace."
