This year marks the 44th anniversary of the sister-city relationship between Honolulu and Seoul. The late Mayor Frank Fasi proposed the idea, and it was adopted by the City Council on April 17, 1973, to be effective May 20, 1973, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of Korean immigration to Hawaii.


My uncle, Taek Shik Yang, was mayor of Seoul at the time and supported the sister-city proposal, which was approved by the Seoul metropolitan government on July 27, 1973.


During my 43 years in Hawaii, I have witnessed numerous cultural exchanges and shared goodwill, tourism, trade and mutual respect between the two cities. Koreans have been a part of Hawaii since 1903, when the first immigrants arrived on the SS Gaelic to work as laborers in plantation fields. Today their descendants have become part of the fabric of our community.
