Yes, it is in front of Chun Doo-hwan's house in Yeonhui-dong, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul.

Chun Doo-hwan was found dead at the age of 90 at around 8:40 am today.

It is now known that an autopsy is being conducted on Mr. Jeon, but as soon as the procedure is completed, Mr. Jeon's burial place will be prepared at the Sinchon Severance Funeral Home.

Jeon, who is 90 years old this year, has recently been known to have rapidly deteriorated health.

He was battling multiple myelopathy, a type of malignant blood cancer.

Former Blue House secretary Min Jeong-ki told reporters gathered at his home here, "The funeral of Mr. Jeon will be held at Severance Hospital as a family funeral, and the remains will be cremated."

At the same time, I read a passage saying, 'I want to remain as a backbone on a hill in front overlooking the northern land', saying that a will was left in the memoirs of Mr. Jeon.

He added, "We can't decide on the burial site of the front notice, so we will cremate it and put it in Yeonhui-dong, and then move it when the burial site is decided."

It is legally impossible for Jeon to be buried at the National Cemetery.

The Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs announced a while ago that "Ex-President Chun Doo-hwan was exempted from burial in national cemeteries under the National Cemetery Act because he was sentenced to prison terms such as rebellion."
