S. Korea Seeks to Add 'Miracle of the Han River' to UNESCO Memory Register

The government is seeking to add records of South Korea’s dramatic economic development dubbed the “Miracle of the Han River,” to the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
The National Archives announced Sunday a plan to apply for the registration next year.
As part of efforts to achieve the listing, the agency will set up a preparatory body and promote its bid at the International Council on Archives Congress 2016, which will be held in Seoul from September fifth to the tenth.
The conference is held every four years by the International Council on Archives. This year’s gathering is expected to bring together thousands of delegates from about 190 countries.
If the application is accepted, some four-thousand-600 records on the nation’s rapid economic development that came following the Korean War will be added into the Memory of the World Register.
Currently, South Korea has 13 historical and cultural assets on the UNESCO list, including the Hunminjeongeum Manuscript; Joseonwangjosillok, the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty; Seungjeongwon Ilgi, the Diaries of the Royal Secretariat; archives of the Saemaul new community movement; and the archives of the KBS Special Live Broadcast “Finding Dispersed Families.”
