People who want to condole and pay their tribute to the former President of South Korea Kim Dae-jeung, who died on August 18, can do so at the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in West Bay. The condolence book will be open from 10 am to 12 noon today and on Sunday. Kim Dae-jeung was President of South Korea from 1998 to 2003, and the 2000 Nobel Peace Prize recipient. As of this date Dae-Jung is the first and only Nobel laureate to hail from Korea. A Roman Catholic since 1957, he has been called the “Nelson Mandela of Asia” for his long-standing opposition to authoritarian rule.
