Kukkiwon announced on the 13th, “Director Lee Dong-seop met with Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon at Seoul City Hall on the 11th and started a full-scale practical review of Kukkiwon and the candidate sites for the 2nd Kukkiwon suggested by the Seoul Metropolitan Government.”
In addition, he added, “The Kukkiwon and the Seoul Metropolitan Government have agreed to speed up the selection of candidate sites.

Meanwhile, Kukkiwon will hold an event celebrating the 5th anniversary of Taekwondo’s ‘national flag’ designation on March 25th at Gwanghwamun, Seoul, etc.
