Dokdo Museum is hosting an exhibition of thirty historical articles related to Ulleungdo and "Dokdo" from June 22 to the end of August. The articles are from relatively recent history and include articles from the Jeju National Museum and from Uljin County's "Daepungheon" (待風軒) in Gusan-ri, where Ulleungdo inspectors in the 1800s would wait for favorable winds to travel to the island. There are also twelve photographs taken in 1917 by a Japanese national on Ulleungdo.
The document shown above is from the Daepungheon, where many more Ulleungdo historical documents were stored until Korean government officials allegedly came to the place several years ago and burned most of them. This was reported in a 2006 KBS interview with the man in charge of the place. I wrote about this back in 2007 HERE. The video used to be at the following address, but now it seems to have been deleted:
The man who made the claim about the documents being burned in the KBS interview looked very similar to the the man who appears in the picture of the Daepungheon to the left.
What is ironic is that the picture to the left is of a ceremony commemorating a effort to protect the historic site and the documents housed in it from fire. Notice the fire extinguishers in the background.
I think this is an example of the barn door being fixed after the cow has already run away. We will probably never know what documents were destroyed those many years ago.
By the way, the following painting was supposedly donated to the the Daepungheon by a Japanese national who visited the place sometime in the past. LINK
