Mr Milan Kwee, STF President extended the condolences of the taekwondo community in Singapore to Dr Choue Chungwon, President of World Taekwondo Federation, on the demise of his beloved father, Dr Young Seek Choue, on 18 February 2012.
The late Dr Choue was the Founder and Chairman of Kyung Hee University which is one of the top education institutions in Korea known for its international programs. In 1979 he also founded GCS International, a Non-Government Organization with a consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. In 1981, as President of the International Association of University Presidents, he proposed the International Day of Peace which was adopted by the UN General Assembly later that year.
The elder Choue was indeed a man who had served humanity nobly and with humility. His death is a loss to the Korean community and the word.
In his message to WTF President, Mr Kwee also said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your bereaved family.”
Mr Kwee will represent STF at the funeral services which will be held on 23 February 2012 at 9.00am at the Grand Peace Palace at Kyung Hee University’s Seoul Campus.
