An exhibition displaying 50 works of calligraphy in Korean script based on President Ho Chi Minh’s prison diary opened in the central province of Nghe An on June 29.
The week-long event, which has been organised by the Republic of Korea’s Calligraphy Association (RoKCA) and the Nghe An provincial Culture, Sports and Tourism Department, is to mark the Vietnamese national hero’s 120 birthday, the 1,000 th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi and the 18 th anniversary of the establishment of Vietnam-RoK diplomatic relations.
At the opening of the exhibition, the Chairman of the Nghe An People’s Committee presented a certificate of merit to RoKCA President Choi Chang Joon and association member Kim Hye Kaeong for their contributions during the hosting of the Lotus Village Festival in 2010.
Since December 2009, the works, created by 25 eminent calligraphers from the Republic of Korea, have been on display in seven major cities in the Rok and four cities in Vietnam, Hanoi, HCM City, Nghe An and Hue.
The collection will be presented as a gift to the Ho Chi Minh Museum after the exhibition closes.
