Culture and Sports Minister Hwang Hee offers an order of merit on the altar of the mountaineer Kim Hong-bin, a fingerless South Korean mountaineer, at a gym in Gwangju, 330 kilometers south of Seoul,
on Aug. 4, 2021. Kim went missing after achieving the record-breaking feat of climbing all of the world's 14 highest peaks in the Himalayas on July 18. Kim reached the summit of the 8,047-meter-high Broad Peak, located in Pakistan's Karakoram Range, becoming the world's first person with a disability to accomplish such a feat. (Yonhap)
