President's Greetings

Hello, all Koreans who living in Victoria Australia.

I am Park Eung Sik, the 33rd president of the Korean Society of Victoria, followed by 32nd.

2024, the Year of the Blue Dragon, marks the 52nd anniversary of the launch of the Korean Society of Victoria.

When we left our home country and came this far away, we all might had a big dream of Australia that used call ‘the last paradise’ in the world. There are many people who have made that dream a reality, but I believe still many of us feel a sense of emptiness and loneliness that cannot be filled. No matter how hard you try, the language barrier and cultural conflicts that make it difficult to bridge the gap are bound to give us nostalgia. In particular, we are in a difficult situation where life itself is at risk as we face difficult challenges such as infectious diseases and abnormal temperatures due to natural disasters caused by climate change.

However, we are Koreans with wonderful DNA who always turn crises into opportunities. In particular, the Korean society of Victoria is made up of people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and talents. This diversity is our greatest strength and something to be proud of. Because diversity comes together to show unity, we are developing into a stronger society and harmonious organization. This power will further solidify our identity in the future.

Korean is very historical country and have old and new unique culture.  Korea and Koreans are attracting attention around the world. The Korean Wave has already become a global craze and is gaining global recognition in various fields such as music, drama, movies, beauty and many other fields. This also builds our self-esteem. In line with this, we will protect and further develop our pride as Koreans. Because that is the proper way to promote our country, the Republic of Korea.

The Republic of Korea, which not only has a long history and a world-leading culture, and also become an economically powerful nation and a leader in technological innovation and industry, is now standing shoulder to shoulder with the ranks of advanced countries, both in name and reality. The successful global expansion of Korean companies and their technological prowess are a source of pride and strength to our Korean community.

As a citizen of a country with over 5,000 years of history, the Korean Society of Victoria will take the lead and support us in solidifying our identity in this land, creating values that will be passed on to future generations, and allowing us to feel proud as Koreans.

To that end, we will continue to implement various projects. We know that we cannot take a single step forward without the cooperation of our Korean members, so we ask for your continued interest and passion.

Let’s do it together. We can do it!

2024 Jan.
