On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic ties between the Republic of Korea and Romania, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Romania, together with former and current Romanian Ambassadors to the Republic of Korea, will hold a special online photo exhibition – “Korea through the lenses of Romanian diplomats”.
The photo exhibition features Korea through various photographs taken by Romanian Ambassadors during their missions in Korea. The first part of the exhibition covers the photos from a variety of diplomatic activities by the former and current Romanian Ambassadors to Seoul – namely, former Ambassadors Izidor Urian (1990-1995), Nicolae Ropotean (1995-1999), Viorel Isticioaia-Budura (2000-2002), Valeriu Arteni (2003-2007), Călin Fabian (2012-2016) and current Ambassador, Mihai Ciompec. The second part will present photographs of scenery and people of Korea, personally taken by former Ambassador Călin Fabian. During his diplomatic service of more than four years in Korea, he took a huge amount of photographs, capturing various aspects of Korea like a professional photographer. Through this exhibition, Romanians will have opportunities to acknowledge the meaningful moments of Romanian diplomacy with the Republic of Korea. At the same time, the Embassy would like to introduce the beautiful scenery of Korea, with its abundant heritage, colourful environment, dynamic landscape of cities and warm-hearted people.
The virtual exhibition will begin with two special congratulatory remarks by Ambassador Kim Yong Ho and Ambassador Mihai Ciompec. A special interview with former Ambassador Călin Fabian (photo), who dedicated his time for the preparation of this exhibition, will also explain more about how this exhibition came into existence, and how he co-worked with all the Ambassadors. The interview will be broadcasted live on the SNS accounts of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Romania at 11:00 am of October 28, and all the videos will be uploaded the next day.
For those interested in seeing a glimpse of Korea through the lenses of diplomats, the photo exhibition will be online for the entire month of November, on the official SNS platforms of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Romania.
