On October 20, Professor Yuji Hosaka of Sejong University’s Dokdo Research Institute launched an English language Web site to inform netizens that the Dokdo islets are Korean territory.
The project was jointly launched with singer Kim Jang-hoon, a staunch advocate of Korea’s claim to the islets who has held a concert on the main island of Suhdo.
The site, truthofdokdo.com, has Korean, Japanese and English versions and provides ancient documents and maps to prove Korea’s claim to the islets.
Prof. Hosaka said he spent months getting information together and working to get documents online. There are currently six different Youtube videos providing videographics about different aspects of the debate. 3WM has included one below for readers and encourages you to visit the site to watch the rest.
Prof. Hosaka says he is working with the Korean government to continue his campaign, informing people in Korea, Japan and around the world about the issue based on unbiased scholarly work.
You can listen to Prof. Hosaka explain different aspects of the issue in an interview with 3WM last summer by clicking on the two links below.
