On August 25, Consul Dae B. Kim performed two songs at a musical gathering organized by a prominent Buddhist temple in Busan. More than 100 monks and family members from various temples in Busan attended the evening gathering at the “Hongbeopsa” temple. Consul Kim sang John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” followed by a Korean pop song. He briefly introduced Consulate Busan and explained its role and function prior to his performance. The organizer of the event, Hongbeopsa head monk Simsan, brings U.S. Korean War veterans to Busan every year to commemorate their heroism and sacrifice.
