BOK to Put Dokdo on New 100,000 Won Bill
Now in a related development.
The Bank of Korea says Dokdo will be on the new 100 thousand won bill when it is issued next year.
The central bank had decided last December to put the Daedongyeojido, a map of Korea from 1861 on the new banknote.
But questions were raised about the appropriateness of the decision after experts pointed out that while the accompanying manuscript for the map does cite Dokdo as Korean territory, the original woodblock printed version did not mark the islets.
