Other items on the menu include nods to the birth towns of former presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, who met with Kim Jong Un's father, Kim Jong Il, in the two previous inter-Korean summits in the 2000s. The chefs will serve croaker caught from Kim Dae-jung's hometown in southwestern Gageo ...
A summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be held April 27 on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom. In a three-part series, the Korea JoongAng Daily will examine the landmark first and second inter-Korean summits, both held in ...

So, there were certain elements of uncertainty and anxiety," Kim Dae-jung's son, Kim Hong-gul, told CNN. Though Roh eventually made the decision to to go to the North Korean capital, his administration was hesitant to do so, said Lee Jong-seok, Roh's former National Security Council chairman and ...
The chefs will serve croaker caught from Kim Dae-jung's hometown in southwestern Gageo island and rice from Roh's southern hometown of Gimhae. They also will serve grilled beef made from cattle at a ranch in the central town of Seosan. The ranch became famous in 1998 when late Hyundai founder ...
South Korea is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming inter-Korean summit this week where President Moon Jae-in will meet with Kim Jong Un for the first time — and the food they'll be eating will be fraught with symbolism. Friday's summit follows Kim making an unexpected trip to Beijing and precedes a ...
Images of Kim Dae-jung and Kim Jong-il shaking hands and clinking champagne glasses filled the airwaves and enthralled many South Korean viewers, as the two leaders signed a broad agreement to work toward peace and reunification. Kim Jong-il called the date of the meeting, June 13, “a day that ...

Hong also criticized the former liberal governments led by Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun for helping the North through "summit shows" while paying little attention to the risks of regime collapse in the North. His remarks came four days before the inter-Korean summit which is scheduled to be held on ...
That, alas, could not be said for Kim Dae-jung and George Bush in their approach to the North. There is of course, a risk in holding separate summits. What if the Kim-Moon summit goes well, the Kim-Trump summit badly? Then, wouldn't Kim have successfully rammed a wedge between the allies? Perhaps.
The use of phone lines was championed by late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung as part of his Sunshine policy of re-engagement with the North. The new hotline reaffirms the North's commitment to upcoming peace talks. Upcoming meeting: After years of increasingly strained relations, driven by a ...
The idea of opening a hot line was hatched in June 2000 when then South Korean President Kim Dae-jung and the North's Kim Jong Il, the current leader's father, held the first inter-Korean summit. The system reportedly features a telephone, a fax and a screen with Internet connection for a video chat.
Moon has vowed to build on the legacies of late liberal Presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun and their so-called "Sunshine Policy," which Moon had a hand in building. Seoul's economic inducements resulted in two summits with the North and a temporary rapprochement in the 2000s. Moon says ...
When South Korea's president at the time, Kim Dae-jung, met with Kim Jong-il in Pyongyang in 2000, the North Korean leader was quoted as saying that keeping American troops in Korea for “stability in Northeast Asia” even after a reunification was “not a bad idea, provided that the status and the role of ...
Lim, who was involved in a previous inter-Korean summit in 2000 as Minister of Unification for then-President Kim Dae-jung, recalled Moon's remarks at a preparation committee meeting in March, when he stressed the need to “allow South and North to live peacefully without interfering with or hurting each ...
But now comes the real test. During his presidential campaign, Moon's approach was compared to the "Sunshine Policy" pursued by Presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, but in practice it has proven different. Under the "Sunshine Policy" -- for which Kim won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2000 -- Seoul ...
This was especially manifested in South Korea in the early 2000s, with the election of President Kim Dae-jung. Such anti-Americanism could be manifested once again by the defiance of Washington's foreign policy preferences for its allies. However, a major reason for this eagerness to approach Russia ...
In 2001, Roh's predecessor Kim Dae-jung also expressed his regret during a visit to Hanoi, saying, “I am sorry that Korea participated in an unfortunate war and inflicted suffering on the Vietnamese people.” A few online users have posted separate petitions to Cheong Wa Dae's website asking for the ...
I trace the true “democratization” of South Korea to the 1998 accession of former democracy activist leader Kim Dae-jung to the presidency, although another somewhat more moderate democrat, Kim Yong-sam, assumed the presidency before him. Kim Dae-jung introduced the so-called “Sunshine Policy,” ...

In June 2000, South Korean President Kim Dae-jung met North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in Pyongyang in the first inter-Korean summit since the division of the peninsula in 1945. This was followed in October the same year by Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's meeting with Kim Jong-il, also in ...
Will Moon Jae-in become the second Korean president to win a Nobel Peace Prize after Kim Dae-jung? If the summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un comes off successfully, he could well be an award recipient. It would also be an example of how "Korea ...
The first time came in 2000 between Kim Jong Il, the late father of the current leader of the North, and South Korea's then-president, liberal Kim Dae-jung. A broadly smiling Kim Jong Il tightly grabbed the hands of Kim Dae-jung at the Pyongyang airport, and the next three days led to an agreement to ...
On his arrival back in Seoul, Kim Dae-Jung said: "I return with the firm conviction that unification can be achieved." The meeting was applauded by world leaders, with the United States hailing a "new day of hope". But while the summit helped earn Kim Dae-Jung a Nobel Peace Prize, it later emerged a ...
Mr. Suh, is a career intelligence officer who was involved in negotiations that led to the first inter-Korean summit meeting between Kim Jong-il, Mr. Kim's father, and Kim Dae-jung, then the South Korean leader, in 2000. Mr. Suh was also involved in arranging a summit meeting in 2007 between the elder Mr.
