Through collaboration with domestic and overseas expert institutions, we make efforts to return Korean cultural properties back to the motherland.

Returning Properties Transferred Illegally

The foundation regularly monitors overseas art markets to identify illegally transferred Korean cultural properties and take them back to Korea by cooperating with relevant domestic and foreign institutions.

Purchase of Overseas Cultural Properties

The foundation is purchasing rare and meaningful Korean cultural properties that are put up for auction or owned by art dealers and individuals. The purchased cultural properties are utilized for survey, research, exhibitions, etc. in Korea.
