[ News, Society, February 12 2008] Self-proclaimed Korean PR expert runs ad in NYT

A Korean man who calls himself a public relations specialist on Korea has run an advertisement in a major U.S. daily about Goguryeo, an ancient Korean kingdom that flourished 37 B.C. - A.D. 668 on a vast expanse of land in East Asia.

Suh Kyung-deok, 31, took out the advertisement in the Feb. 11 edition of the New York Times, which showed a map centered on the Korean Peninsula around A.D. 412, when Goguryeo expanded over to Manchuria in Northeast China.

The ad read, “Goguryeo is without a doubt a part of Korean history. The Chinese government must acknowledge this fact. “
