2018 Old Korean Legation Essay Contest Announcement

The Old Korean Legation is the cradle of Korea-U.S. friendship. In 1889, Korea (then Joseon) established her first diplomatic mission in the U.S. at Logan Circle, Washington, DC, but lost ownership of the legation building in 1910. 102 years later, Korea repurchased the building in 2012; restored it to its original 19th century beauty; and opened it to the public as the Old Korean Legation Museum this year. In celebration of the opening of the Museum, we invite you to an essay contest. Anyone can join. Selected essays will be awarded with a certificate and prize.
