  • 1998.6.16
    Date of visit to North Korea
    Hyundai Group Honorary Chairman Chung Ju-young's first visit to North Korea took place on June 16, 1998, when he carried 500 cows on 50 trucks.

    Chung stayed in North Korea to discuss inter-Korean economic cooperation and the development of Mount Kumgang.

    On October 27, 1998, he returned to North Korea through Panmunjom with 501 "unification cows" and 20 Hyundai Motor vehicles.

    The Chung Ju-young cattle visit to North Korea was the first case in which a civilian entered North Korea through Panmunjom, a military zone, after a civilian-level agreement since the division.

    Chairman Chung Ju-young's visit to North Korea was a monumental event that paved the way for civilian exchanges between the two Koreas, which will grow rapidly over the next decade.
