"The Life of Dokdo Guardian An Yong-bok"By the way, Seichu Naito is a Japanese scholar who said, "Korea's position on the Dokdo issue seems reasonable," and HERE are some other things he said, all of which seem to support the Korean claim.
Academic Symposium at Chungnam University
An academic symposium on the activities of An Yong-bok in Japan and Korea will be held in the Professor Conference Room of the College of Humanities at Chungnam University at 5 p.m. on the 5th. Chungnam University Professor Gwon O-yeop, Paichai University Professor Gwon Jeong, and Korea Defense University Professor Kim Byeong-ryeol will be among those attending.
In particular, professor and distinguished scholar Seichu Naito is scheduled to give a presentation on the life of An Yong-bok in Japanese documents, which is generating interest in academic circles.
Chungnam University Professor Gwon O-yeop stressed, "Setting the record straight on the life of An Yong-bok is one issue that clarifies that Dokdo is our land." He added, "I hope more people become interested in the importance of Dokdo."
I do not know understand why Korea bothers to have "academic" symposiums on Dokdo if the only scholars they invite are the ones who support their claims. I do not call that an academic symposium; I call it a "pep rally."
