A year before Japanese annexation in 1909, “Ketcheonil,” was established to celebrate the founding of the Korean nation nearly 5,000 years ago. Today, it is celebrated in both North and South Korea. As part of commemorations of Foundation Day in 2023, Action for Korea United (AKU) led by the Global Peace Foundation hosted an International Forum on One Korea on October 2, 2023 in Seoul, Korea. This was followed by a Korea United Festival at Yeouido Park in Seoul, Korea.
Asia Today published a special covering the events (here in Korean).
