KSCPP - Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project 

Even today, literature and internet websites that provide interesting and accurate information for people of other countries about Korea and its past are few and far between. Because of this, our organization has planned a series entitled Korean Spirit and Culture, which provides a basic introduction to Korea's long and rich history, the spirit of its people, and its cultural values, both through the project website ( www.koreanhero.net ) and also through the publication and distribution of free research materials to individuals and major institutions.
