"I thought these skyscrapers could be seen only in the United States. I am so amazed to see the advanced Korea in my first visit to my motherland. I am so proud to be Korean." It was a touching comment of Vladimir Kim, 79, President of the Federation of Korean Culture Promotion, as he receives the Nunnopi Education Award in overseas category. President Kim was forcibly migrated in 1937 to central Asia with his mother and five brothers and sisters and has lived in Kazakhstan. He studied at agricultural school and at Tchaikovsky musical school, after which he devoted his life to teaching Korean language and Korean culture to his Korean compatriots while working as a music teacher. He founded the Federation of Korean Culture Promotion and 'Mugunghwa (national flower of Korea) School' and has taught Korean language and Korean culture to ethic Korean college students and teachers. "Former students of mine teach at many Korean language schools to third-fourth generation ethnic Koreans. It is sad to see many of them lose the language of their motherland, " Kim said.
