Kang Han-ok, mother of President Moon Jae-in, died Tuesday at the age of 92, Cheong Wa Dae announced.

She died at a hospital in Busan, the president's hometown located some 450 kilometers southeast of Seoul, at 7:06 p.m., it said.

She had reportedly suffered from an illness for a long time and had been in critical condition in recent days.

Moon plans to hold a "calm" family funeral at the wishes of the deceased, according to Cheong Wa Dae spokesperson, Ko Min-jung.

No condolence calls or flowers will be accepted, she added. Ko asked the public to convey mourning messages instead "with their hearts."(Yonhap)
