  ‘Dokdo, Blossoms’ is an exhibition co-hosted by Yeungnam University Museum and Yeungnam University Dokdo Institute. The exhibition deals with the Dokdo Dispute. The 2005 Japan’s Defense White Paper first mentioned this dispute. In this year’s revised it, “The territorial issue of Northern Territories and Takeshima, which are unique territories, still remains unresolved,” indicating that the dispute has still not been resolved. Takeshima is what Japan calls Dokdo. Japan is also educating students with textbooks distorting Dokdo’s history.
  The YU Dokdo Institute was founded in May 2005. It is the first Korean research institute specializing in Dokdo. Its purpose is to correct Japanese claims, which began in 2005. In 2007, it was selected as a major institute for policy by the Ministry of Education and promoted numerous exhibitions. This exhibition marks the 17th anniversary of the institute’s special exhibition. The institute informs the research achievements of the past and introduces new evidence at the exhibition. 
  The main exhibits include Daedong Unbu Gunok, Haejwajeondo provided by YU Central Library, and Sejong Silokjiriji by YU Dokdo Institute, and Gangchi bones found in Gyeongju. Sejong Silokjiriji is the first history of Dokdo in Korean literature. This data is important because Dokdo is mentioned 200 years earlier than the Japanese historical data Onshu Shicho Goki. Gangchi bones are the first data released by YU Dokdo Institute. Gangchi is the name of a sea lion that lived in Dokdo. A model stuffed with a real Gangchi is also displayed at the entrance.
  The exhibits are displayed in eight sections. In addition, there is an introduction to the history of the institute, painting of native plants of Dokdo, and exhibits showing a detailed map of Dokdo.
Doctor Song Hwi-young, a Dokdo institute research professor, said, “I hope citizen, students, and especially YU students will visit the exhibition and learn the facts about why Dokdo is our land. I think the exhibition will show you in detail why Dokdo is our land. ”
  YU Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on weekends and holidays. The exhibition opened on May 30, 2022, and runs until April 29 next year. The display is in the YU Museum’s first floor lobby and the special exhibition room on the second floor.
