Lee Kyu Hyung, new President of Kukkiwon

Master Lee Kyu Hyung (Kyemyeng University – 9th Dan) is the new President of Kukkiwon after being provisionally named yesterday by the Director of the organization’s board, Mr Hong. Master Lee Kyu Hyung will immediately start working for Kukkiwon, as he’s decided to make today his first day as the Chair-in-Office.

Mr Hong did also name some more positions within the organization yesterday: Oh Hyuen Deuk will be the Administrative Deputy Director, while No Sun Myeng was supposed to be the Director of Education, a position which he finally refused to take. Master Lee and Mr Oh have already started to actively work for the development of Kukkiwon.

Master Lee replaces Mr Kim Chung Gun, who was acting as the Chair-in-Office during Hong’s trip to USA. We will now await the official appointment of Master Lee, which is expected to happen in the coming days if there’s no public reaction against the appointment eventually.

Mr Hong did also name 11 new members of the Kukkiwon board last Friday August 16th.

- Lim Yun Taek (Seoul Taekwondo Association President)

- Kim Chul Ho (KTA Vice-President)

- Kim Tae Il (Taekwondo Professional Association President)

- Hwang In Sik (Kyengkido Association Vice-Presiedent)

- Kim Sang Chen (Kyeng Min University Professor)

- Kim Hyen Sueng (Former Congressman)

- Kim Chel Ki (Former Secretary General of the Pro Park Movement)

- Oh Hyen Deuk (Former Kukkiwon Vice-President)

- Kim Myeng Yeun (Congressman)

- Ham Jin Kyu (Congressman)

However, this list of new members of the Kukkiwon board has caused controversy, as the appointments were made on the same day that the former board was dissolved.

  7. I want to Congratulate Grandmaster Lee Kyu Hyung as the new Kukkiwon President. It is our honor to have a truly disciplined Leader to help the world unite and develop a mutual understanding between countries. The Kukkiwon is a great place to belong to, as I have met many hundred Masters from around the world and will devote my life to improving it one small step at a time.

    Grandmaster Lee gave a lecture to the 28th Foreign Instructors training course in August. The subject was clear and concise and he had a message to all Instructors, teach as all students are eggs and take care of everyone of them. I hope to see everyone at the Hanmadang in Daejong next week.
