Gov't to Seek New Cultural Symbols

2008/01/25 | 111 views | Permalink | Source

The Culture Ministry plans to change the nation's ten official cultural symbols after the launch of the new government.

The current lineup includes the Korean alphabet "hangul", the Korean traditional clothing "hanbok", and Taekwondo.

A ministry official said Friday the government will seek new symbols to represent the nation's identity and vitality. They will also promote the slogan "Dynamic Korea" along with "Korea Sparkling" and "HanStyle".

The new plan comes after the presidential transition team called for new symbols and brands to express the image of a more globalized Korea.
