SCRIPT
Anti-Japanese protesters gathered in the South Korean capital of Seoul on Saturday, amid escalated tension between the two countries.
People were holding candles and signs reading 'No' and 'Boycott Japan,' with some of the demonstrators seen addressing the crowds from a stage at Gwanghwamun Plaza square.
Earlier this week, South Korea announced that it would scrap the military intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan, following the trade disputes that the two countries have been embroiled in.
