With the 2019 Dallas Korean Festival preparation under way, focus is now on whether the City of Carrollton will declare November 16th the ‘Korean Day.’ November 16th is the date scheduled for the festival.

 

Suk Chan Yu, who is leading the Festival Committee, announced during the first committee meeting that he had requested the City of Carrollton to consider declaring November 16th the ‘Korean Day.’

 

If the ‘Korean Day’ is declared by the city, Yu hopes to hoist Korean national flags (Tae Geuk Ki) and the Star Spangled Banners along the Old Denton Road in front of the Carrollton Asian Town Center, the site of the Festival.

 

The chances of ‘Korean Day’ proclamation are high, according to Carrollton city councilman Young Sung.

 

According to Sung, who is the first ever 2nd generation Korean-American to be elected into a city council in Texas, Carrollton City Council meeting is scheduled for November 5th. During the meeting, the Council is expected to make the decision on whether it will declare ‘Korean Day.’

 

Suk Chan Yu is also expected to appear in the chamber and plead his request for the proclamation once more.

 

“If the city of Carrollton declares November 16the the Korean Day, it will mean so much for the Korean American community. Korean American community has been an integral part of Carrollton, in terms of political, cultural, and economic contributions to the city” said Young Sung during a phone interview with Asiaindallas.com.

 

Expectations are high among the Korean Americans of not only Carrollton but also the entire North Texas region. And it would only make sense for the City of Carrollton, which thrives on ethnic diversity, to declare November 16th the ‘Korean Day.’
