The Dokdo Racers, comprised of Korean university students campaigning to raise awareness of Korea’s Dokdo islets, will bring their message to Washington, D.C. on April 8, with a luncheon and presentation at the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. followed by a street performance of Korean traditional dance along the Embassy Row stretch of Massachusetts Ave.
Now on their third tour as the Dokdo Racers, the team will cross four continents and stop at major cities to explain to international audiences how Dokdo is Korean territory. The group originally formed as the Dokdo Riders, with their first tour in 2006. The current members of the Dokdo Racers are Tae-Wan Kwon (Waseda University), Hyun Park (Konkuk University), Joon-Myung Yoon (Waseda University), and Seung-Bae Park (Dong-Eui University).
The presentation will introduce the history and background of Dokdo, followed by a Korean traditional lion mask dance and Dokdo Street performance on Embassy Row near the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. A Korean luncheon will first be served from 12 noon to 12:30 p.m.
