The association’s goal is to spread information about Korea and support and promote exchange between Sweden and Korea.
The Korean Association in Sweden was founded in 1951 and is a non-profit organization.
The pioneers were Swedes who served in the Swedish hospitals in Korea or in the military commissions which were created after the war on the Korean peninsula. Today many other groups of Korean friends have joined the association
In 2013 Koreanska merged with the Korean War Veteran´s organization (Swedish-Korean Society established 1961), so today many of our members are war-veterans.
The Association issues a quarterly magazine – YOBOSEYO. The magazine informs about development in Korea and includes articles with contemporary contents.
A scholarship is annually awarded to a Swedish student for Korean related studies in Republic of Korea.
