Korea will sponsor the event while the Museum of Liberty Osaka, the National Folk Museum of Korea and the Munwha Broadcast Corporation (MBC) plan to contribute to the exhibition.

The exhibition is made up of 300 pictures catogorized into three different areas; history, culture, and life. Photos to be featured in the exhibition come from Korean photographer Yu Eun-kyu (38). He has collected over 3,000 pictures of Korean life in the Yonbyun district over the past eight years.
